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.
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.
