Quinn went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Saturday's victory over the Braves.
While he didn't offer any run production, Quinn batted fifth and swiped his 10th bag in just 139 plate appearances in his first major-league season. The Phillies might have at least one outfield opening for 2019, assuming Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera are their top two. Given the underwhelming lot of Nick Williams, Aaron Altherr and Scott Kingery, the speedy Quinn could play his way into significant time again for a bigger share of next season, which at the moment makes him an intriguing late-round speed flyer looking ahead to 2019 mixed drafts.
Quinn (foot) is starting in center field and hitting third Tuesday against the Mets, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Quinn was supposed to be unavailable for Monday's series opener with a foot injury, but he ended up entering as a pinch hitter and drawing a walk. He'll rejoin the starting nine Tuesday in place of Odubel Herrera with southpaw Steven Matz on the mound for the Mets. Quinn is hitting .330/.365/.527 with two homers and eight stolen bases across 37 games with the big club this season.
Quinn is unavailable Monday while resting his foot, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Quinn missed six straight games earlier in the month with a small fracture in his foot. He's been allowed to play so long as the pain is tolerable, and he returned to the lineup Friday to start each game of the Phillies weekend series against the Marlins, going 3-for-11 with a homer. He evidently still can't play every day, however, so he'll miss Monday's contest entirely.
Quinn (foot) will man center field and bat ninth against the Marlins on Friday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Quinn has been sidelined since Sept. 5 after suffering a small fracture in his foot during the club's last series with Miami. Though manager Gabe Kapler stated last weekend that Quinn would be available off the bench since he couldn't really aggravate the injury any further, the Phillies refrained from using him in any capacity. Since his promotion in late July, Quinn is slashing .338/.369/.525 with seven RBI and seven stolen bases in 33 games.
Quinn is banged up after hitting a ball off his foot Wednesday but remains available off the bench for Friday's game against the Mets, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
The injury doesn't sound like a serious one, so expect to see Quinn back in the lineup soon. The fact that specific reasons are being given for why the outfielder isn't starting shows just how far Quinn has come since his late-July callup. He's proven his value by hitting .338/.369/.525 with seven steals in 33 games and now finds himself in the lineup more often than not, starting 10 of 15 games prior to Friday.
