The Phillies placed outfielder Roman Quinn on the 10-day injured list today, following his removal from Friday’s game with the Padres. It’s a right groin muscle strain for the 26-year-old Philadelphia product, as detailed by a report from Scott Lauber of the Philadelphia Enquirer (link).
After managing a 97 wRC+ in 50 games in his rookie 2018 season, 2019 has been nothing short of a trial for the center fielder from Florida. Quinn already missed a month this season due to a similar injury, and he has only output a .213/.298/.370 slash when healthy. However, August had seen Quinn getting into a serious groove, with a .368 batting average, three homers, and four stolen bases on the month.
The pervasiveness of these lower-body injuries is especially troublesome for a player of Quinn’s profile, who bases much of his game on his 30.1 ft/sec sprint speed (6th among active players this year). In his stead, it is expected that fellow rookie Adam Haseley will receive a larger share of up-the-middle playing time.
Veteran Jared Hughes, whom the Phillies claimed off waivers from the Reds this week, was brought onto the 25-man roster to replace Quinn for the time being. The righty pitched a clean frame in tonight’s 5-3 loss to San Diego.
