Report: Phillies sign Roman Quinn to minor league deal
According to Matt Gelb of The Athletic, the Philadelphia Phillies have signed Roman Quinn to a minor league deal.
This past spring, Quinn competed for a roster spot on the Miami Marlins but didn’t crack the roster. Quinn was drafted in the second round of the 2011 MLB Draft by the Philadelphia, and spent five years with the big league roster. In 2021, his season was cut short due to tearing his left Achilles against the Tampa Bay Rays.
He will reportedly be playing center field for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The Phillies lack depth at the center field position, with both Odúbel Herrera and Mickey Moniak on the injury report. If another injury occurs for a center fielder, we may very likely see Quinn be brought up.
Game two for the Phillies
Today, the Phillies play their second game of the season against the Oakland Athletics, with Kyle Gibson set to be on the mound. Coming off a 9-5 victory on Opening Day, they look to start of the season with a 2-0 record.
