Roster Moves: Phillies select Roman Quinn’s contract, option INF Bryson Stott down to Triple-A
The Phillies have selected Roman Quinn’s contract from Lehigh Valley. In a corresponding move, the team has optioned infielder Bryson Stott to Triple-A. Ryan Sherriff has also been transferred to the 60-day IL.
Roman Quinn was non-tendered at the end of last season, after dealing with a ruptured Achilles tendon last season that held him out all year. Quinn signed with the Marlins on a minor-league contract but wasn’t selected to the Opening Day roster. The Phillies re-signed Roman Quinn back to the team just two days after Moniak’s injury, and he’s now making his way up to the big leagues.
Pretty stupid move that honestly, shows how thin the Phillies’ minor league system is in the outfield position. If you have to bring back Roman Quinn and then call him up to the major leagues, you’re in trouble.
Mickey Moniak can’t come back soon enough.
The Bryson Stott experiment didn’t go as well as everyone hoped for. It was tough for Stott to get consistent starts with the team, with the hot bat of Alec Bohm and Johan Camargo taking over the left side of the infield. Stott hit .133/.161/.167 in 30- at-bats, with just four hits and 3 RBIs. Stott will be heading back down to Lehigh Valley where he will get to play everyday.
Ryan Sheriff will be transferred to the 60-day, also announced by the team. Sherriff was claimed off waivers by the Phillies back in November, but has been dealing with a bicep injury for months.
