Phillies Get Good News on Prospect Roman Quinn
When Phillies prospect Roman Quinn took a pickoff throw to the head on Saturday night, some feared that Quinn's season may be over. Assigned to Double-A Reading, the Phillies placed Quinn on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion shortly thereafter. On Wednesday, the Phillies got some good news about their center field prospect.
Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly reports that Quinn could return to the Reading Fightin' Phils:
The Fightin' Phils season ends on Monday with a 1:00 p.m. game in Trenton.
However, the Fightin' Phils are play-off bound. The club clinched postseason play last week. At 86-49, the Fightin' Phils hold a 1.5 game lead over the Trenton Thunder in the division, but will have at the very least a Wild Card berth. The Fightin' Phils close the season with four against Trenton in Trenton this weekend.
After the posteason, the Phillies may consider Quinn for a September call-up. Already on the 40-man roster, Quinn would be an easy name to call upon. Other prospects including J.P. Crawford and Nick Williams must be added to the 40-man roster first, which could mean that they may not have such an opportunity.
In 70 games, Quinn is batting .280 with a .370 on base percentage and 29 stolen bases.
