Quinn has been sidelined since May 28 with a ligament injury to his non-throwing elbow. He is not yet ready for game action, but is expected to start playing in games at some point this month. He's a candidate to join the Phillies later this year if, as expected, the club trades one or both of its veteran outfielders.
Quinn will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks with a sprained left UCL, Meghan Montemurro of The News Journal reports.
The injury won't require surgery, so Quinn will just have to rest until he is ready to resume baseball activities. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to go sometime in late July, though a his timetable should be updated as he progresses through his rehab.
Quinn (elbow) was placed on the minor-league disabled list Friday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Given that Quinn has a UCL injury in his elbow, this move comes as no surprise. It essentially opens up a roster spot at Triple-A for another outfielder to take his spot. He's scheduled to get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews soon, so a clearer timetable for his return should come forth following that appointment.
It's unclear if the ligament is torn or if he just tweaked it, but UCL injuries have proven to take a long time to heal. Thankfully, the ailment is on his non-throwing arm, which could expedite his return whether he needs surgery or not. Quinn will see Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion soon, after which a better idea of his recovery process should become known.
Quinn (elbow) is seeking a second opinion on his injured elbow, Tom Housenick of The Morning Call reports.
No word has emerged regarding the results of Tuesday's examination, but the fact that Quinn is seeking a second opinion makes his outlook seem a bit more ominous. It's still unclear what exactly he's dealing with, but a gauge as to how long he'll be out should emerge once the diagnosis from the second opinion is known.
