Roman Quinn was your selection as the #11 prospect in the Phillies’ organization.
Quinn received 104 of 268 votes (39%). Enyel De Los Santos finished second (49, 18%), Tom Eshelman finished third (32, 12%), and Cornelius Randolph finished fourth (28, 10%). Fifteen players split the remaining 55 votes.
Roman Quinn had another injury-shortened season in 2017. In six six seasons since being drafted, he has enjoyed only one injury-free season, 2012 in Williamsport. Quinn was drafted out of high school in the second round of the 2011 June Amateur Draft. When he is on the field, Quinn is an exciting player.
Quinn has put together a nice resume in the minors. His career slash in 1789 plate appearances is .276/.352/.400/.752 with 158 walks 367 strike outs, and a SB rate of 77.2%.
Quinn got a call up to the Phillies in 2016. He saw action in 15 games and posted a .263/.373/.333/.706 while stealing 5 bases in 6 attempts.
Quinn’s game is a speed game and hinges on his ability to get on base. He has 169 stolen bases in his minor league career, a BB% of 8.8%, and puts the ball in play with a K% of 20.5%. He shows modest power with 25 HRs among his 113 minor league XBH.
Quinn started as a SS in the organization and wasn’t moved to CF until 17 games into the 2014 season in Clearwater, right around the time J.P. Crawford arrived at Advanced A. He’s a slightly above average fielder with a slightly above average arm. He needs to be in CF, as his below average power doesn’t profile well in a corner OF position.
He was the Phillies’ priority player in the 2014 Arizona Fall League. He got 110 plate appearances in 24 games and batted .250 against the top prospects sent to the league. He stole 14 bases in 16 attempts, walked 16 times, and struck out 16 times. The only thing left for Quinn to accomplish is to stay healthy and make the Phillies roster.
Next up is your selection for the #12 prospect in the organization with Ben Pelletier, Jhordany Mezquita, and Jesse Valentin added to the poll.
