TBOH 2015 Phillies #9 Prospect – Roman Quinn


Roman Quinn was the Phillies 2nd Round pick in the 2011 MLB Draft out of a Florida high school. He was converted from shortstop to centerfield by the Phillies in 2014, and he took to the change well. It was a positive season in every way for Quinn after near-disaster in 2013. Just over a year ago, Quinn suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon. He seemed fully recovered this season, stealing 32 bases and scoring 51 runs at High-A Clearwater. He is considered an 80 runner on the scouting scale. GM Ruben Amaro has called him “As fast as you’re going to get on a baseball field.” The 21-year old is likely to see AA-Reading in 2015, looking to put himself into position for a 2016 fight for the big league lineup. Quinn could also still conceivably be moved back into the infield as a possible long-term replacement for Chase Utley. But for now, the Phils are going to see if he can be a speedy centerfielder who can hit atop the batting order.
