Quinn could potentially benefit from the shortened season, as his durability concerns should matter less with fewer games, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Quinn is an intriguing talent, but he's never been able to play 100 games in a season as a professional and hasn't even played 80 games in a campaign since back in 2016. With the season as a whole not likely to last much more than 80 games, though, that should be less of an issue this season. Playing-time questions remain, however, as the Phillies are likely to give 2017 eighth overall pick Adam Haseley the chance to prove he's an everyday center fielder. Quinn's speed makes him an interesting option should regular playing time open up at some point, however.
Quinn should have less competition for at-bats off the Phillies' bench after fellow outfielders Nick Williams and Kyle Garlick were optioned Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Quinn's ability to play center field meant he was always likely to win at least a bench role, and Thursday's moves seem to have confirmed that. He previously looked to have a chance to start in center field to open the season with Andrew McCutchen (knee) not expected to be ready for the originally scheduled Opening Day, but the delayed start seemingly gives McCutchen time to heal up, pushing Quinn to the bench.
Quinn could move into a starting role early in the season with Andrew McCutchen still recovering from a torn ACL, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
McCutchen will open the year on the injured list and has an uncertain return date. That could mean Jay Bruce takes over for him in left field, or it could mean Adam Haseley slides from center to left, with Quinn starting in center. Both Bruce and Haseley hit left-handed, so Quinn is likely to at least see playing time against lefties. Injuries have held him back thus far in his career, and his .243/.321/.382 slash line through 109 big-league games is nothing special, but his 23 steals are more than enough to interest fantasy owners should he find himself with unexpected playing time.
Quinn (groin) resumed running Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Quinn has been sidelined since mid-August with a groin strain. He's expected to resume hitting Wednesday, and if all goes well, the outfielder could return for the final two weeks of the season.
Quinn was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right groin strain.
Durability has always been Quinn's biggest weakness, so it's not surprising to see him land on the shelf. He was hitting .368 with three home runs and four steals in 38 at-bats in August. Adam Haseley will serve as the primary center fielder in his absence.
Quinn was removed from Friday's game against San Diego due to right groin tightness, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Quinn's removal from the contest was precautionary, so he'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.
Quinn was lifted from Friday's game against the Padres after he appeared to tweak something in the eighth inning on a groundout to first base, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
The extent of Quinn's injury is unknown at this time, but he's likely headed for further evaluation.
Quinn isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Giants.
Quinn will head to the bench after going 0-for-4 in Thursday's series opener. Adam Haseley is set to man center field and will bat eighth in Quinn's stead.
Quinn is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.
Quinn will stick on the bench for a second straight game as the hot-hitting Adam Haseley, who is 5-for-9 with a pair of doubles over the past two games, picks up another start in center field Wednesday.
Quinn isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Quinn collected a pair of hits in Monday's series opener, but he'll retreat to the bench for Tuesday's clash. Adam Haseley draws the start in center field and will hit eighth in Quinn's stead.
Quinn went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and an RBI in Monday's 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks.
Quinn started in center field for the third time in four games and looks poised to see at least semi-regular work at the position with Scott Kingery having since taken over everyday duties at third base for the demoted Maikel Franco. The 26-year-old Quinn lacks power and a refined hit tool, but he'll bring ample value as a baserunner thanks to an average sprint speed that ranks in the 98th percentile among all players in the majors this season, per Statcast. Though he's only logged 95 plate appearances, Quinn is already a perfect 7-for-7 on stolen-base attempts.
Quinn went 3-for-6 with a solo home run, a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored Friday against the White Sox.
He also took the loss, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over two innings of relief in a 15-inning affair. Quinn has struggled at the dish through 33 games this season (.169/.256/.312 slash line), though Friday night's performance was a step in the right direction.
Quinn will start in center field and bat ninth Wednesday against the Tigers, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
With Bryce Harper receiving the day off following Tuesday's 3-2 win in 15 innings, there will be room in the outfield for Quinn to pick up his second straight start. Quinn came through with his first home run of the season Tuesday, but the 26-year-old still looks likely to work in a reserve role on most occasions with Harper, Scott Kingery and Adam Haseley typically making up Philadelphia's starting outfield.
Quinn was added to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins, according to Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Quinn was originally slated to work as a reserve Saturday, but he was added to the Phillies' lineup after Jay Bruce was scratched for an undisclosed reason. Quinn will play center field and hit eighth against Marlins starter Jordan Yamamoto.
Quinn is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Mets.
Quinn has started four of eight games since returning from the injured list, going 2-for-15 at the plate. Scott Kingery will play center field Tuesday, with Maikel Franco starting at third base.
Quinn is not in the lineup Thursday against the Nationals, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Quinn will sit for the second time in three games since returning from the injured list, with his lone start coming against left Patrick Corbin. Scott Kingery is covering center field against righty Erick Fedde on Thursday, with Maikel Franco manning the hot corner.
Quinn is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.
Quinn will take a seat for the second half of Wednesday's doubleheader after going 0-for-4 during Philadelphia's 6-2 loss in Game 1. Scott Kingery is starting in center field in his stead, with Brad Miller entering the lineup at third base.
Quinn (groin) was activated from the 10-day injured list Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Quinn's setback on Friday, when he was hit by a pitch in the shoulder, proved to be a minor one, as he's back just a day or two later than expected. It's tough to rely on Quinn staying healthy for the rest of the season, but he's an interesting fantasy option while available thanks to his considerable speed. He should have the opportunity to play frequently with Odubel Herrera still on administrative leave. Scott Kingery filled in well in center field, though he'll play third base Monday against the Nationals, pushing Maikel Franco to the bench and opening up center field for Quinn.
Quinn (shoulder) is no longer expected to return to Philadelphia over the weekend after he was hit on the shoulder by a pitch during a rehab outing for Double-A Reading on Friday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Quinn reportedly felt some discomfort on his swings following the incident, though it would appear that he's merely dealing with some bruising and not a muscle issue. The Phillies do not consider the setback to be a major one, though caution is advised given Quinn's lengthy injury history.
Manager Gabe Kapler said Quinn (groin) could return in Atlanta this weekend, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Quinn has been sidelined since the end of April with a Grade 2 groin strain but appears to be on the cusp of a return. The outfielder made back-to-back rehab appearances for High-A Clearwater on Monday and Tuesday, going a combined 4-for-8 with a double and a stolen base. Assuming Quinn remains free of setbacks in the coming days, it sounds like he could be back with the big club as soon as Friday. Once healthy, Quinn should have a path to at least semi-regular at-bats with Odubel Herrera currently on the restricted list.
