- re:Quinn – Per Mike Drago, sportswriter for the Reading Eagle:
- “No official word on Roman Quinn’s injury. Reading manager Dusty Wathan believes it’s an upper leg injury, nothing with the knee or achilles.”
- “Reading manager Dusty Wathan said he thought Quinn was injured before he hit the first base bag, not as he stepped on it.”
- “Following 2013 season, Roman Quinn ruptured Achilles tendon & required surgery, but this does not appear to be related.”
