LF,CF - CLE - MiLB
Roman Quinn cleared outright waivers and elected free agency.
Quinn could be looking for his fifth team since 2022, as he spent time with the Rays, Phillies, Marlins, and Royals last season. Quinn spent most of the season either hurt or in Triple-A. He could be a bench piece who provides speed for a team in need of a late-inning pinch runner.
Rays outfielder Roman Quinn turned on the burners during Thursday's game against the Royals. He went 3-for-4 with a triple and two singles, struck out once, and scored once. Tampa Bay ultimately defeated Kansas City by a score of 7-1.
Quinn has made a clear impact for Tampa Bay, slashing .289/.372/.447 with two doubles, two triples, four RBI, four walks, and 17 strikeouts over the course of 20 games.
Outfielder Roman Quinn registered his first at-bats with the Rays on Saturday evening. He ended up producing a solid line, going 2-for-3 with a single and two-run triple. He also struck out once. Tampa Bay ultimately fell to Kansas City by a score of 6-3.
Quinn slashed just .162/.225/.189 with three RBI, three walks, and 15 strikeouts through 23 games with the Phillies earlier this season. He also swiped four bags. The veteran outfielder was sent to the minors where he elected free agency and latched on with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate in Omaha. Kansas City released Quinn after just one month, and the Rays jumped on the opportunity to sign him to their big-league roster.
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.
