If there was ever a player that needed bubble wrap, it would be Roman Quinn. Injuries have derailed each and every one of his seasons since 2013. If Quinn stayed mostly healthy through his minor-league career, he would be an everyday major-leaguer by this point. Instead, his chances of fulfilling that role are questionable at best.

There is a chance that Quinn could make the major-league roster this season as the team’s fifth outfielder. Manager Gabe Kapler said that Quinn could fill a role that no other player in camp can. With Quinn’s speed and versatility in the outfield, he would be an ideal fifth outfielder as well as a late-game, pinch-running threat.
However, for Quinn to make the majors, he just has to stay healthy. We’ve been saying that for years, but it’s true.
He would be a solid major-league contributor already if he had been healthy the last few years. A healthy spring training in 2018 could get him back to the majors this year.
