CF - PHI - IL60
Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn will undergo season-ending Achilles tendon surgery. The recovery time estimates at 9-12 months.
Outside of NL-only leagues, Quinn wasn't fantasy relevant with zero home runs, four steals, and a .173 batting average in 62 plate appearances. The part-time speedster is droppable in all formats.
The Phillies placed Roman Quinn on the 60-day IL with a left Achilles injury on Sunday. They selected the contract of Travis Jankowski from Triple-A to take Quinn's place on the roster.
Quinn had to be carried off the field on Saturday after suffering the injury, so the fact that he'll likely be out for the season isn't overly surprising. This is the second torn Achilles tendon (assuming that is the official diagnosis) that Quinn has suffered in his career, and he had only recently returned from the IL after cutting his finger. He can be dropped in all formats.
Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn will head to the injured list after receiving nine stitches on his finger.
Quinn is mostly relevant in NL-only leagues since he hardly plays and doesn't provide much production. In 52 plate appearances, Quinn has zero home runs and four steals with a .136 batting average.
Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn went 0-for-6 with a walk, a runs scored, a stolen base, and six strikeouts across both games of Friday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays. The steal was his 10th of the season.
As evidenced by the six strikeouts on Friday, Quinn has not offered much at the plate for fantasy owners this season. What he does offer, though, is elite speed and the potential for stolen bases.
