Roman Quinn Inks Minor League Deal With Marlins
According to Craig Mish of The Miami Herald, former Phillie Roman Quinn has accepted a minor league deal with the Miami Marlins. The deal includes an invite to big league spring training.
Quinn, 28, was originally drafted by the Phillies in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft out of Port St. Joe, FL. He is currently still recovering from a left Achilles injury suffered in a game last May.
Quinn was quick to flash his world-class speed in the minors and displayed promise by reaching the majors in 2016. But over the next five seasons injuries limited him to just 456 AB’s in 178 games. Unable to stay on the field, Quinn never cemented a role with the big club.
Quinn’s final line with the Phillies was .228/.306/.355 with 8HR and 38 RBI.
That’s an OPS+ of 63.
Personally, I liked Roman and thought he was a good teammate. But as the saying goes the best ability is availability. Quinn just couldn’t stay on the field.
