Quinn helped off field with Achilles injury: 'It doesn't look good'

Phillies

Update, May 30: Roman Quinn was placed on the 60-day IL and is expected to miss the rest of the 2021 season.

Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn collapsed rounding third base on a two-run double by Ronald Torreyes Saturday and had to be helped off the field with an Achilles injury.

Quinn fell to the ground but got up and hopped on one foot to score as the Phillies tied the game against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

"It doesn’t look good," Phillies manager Joe Girardi said after the game, a 5-3 loss. "I don’t expect to get any good news from the MRI. We’re pretty sure it’s not good."

Quinn was just activated by the Phillies Tuesday when Bryce Harper went on the injured list with a forearm contusion. Quinn has been plagued by injuries throughout his career. Over the years, he has missed significant time with a torn quadriceps, a torn Achilles tendon, a strained elbow ligament, a torn ligament in his middle finger, a concussion, a broken toe, a groin strain and an oblique strain. This season, he’s dealt with separate injuries to his finger and Achilles.

"He’s been playing well for us," Girardi said. "He gets a freak injury with the stitches in his finger and now this. I feel for the kid, I really do. We’re going to miss him."

Outfielder Mickey Moniak is on the Phillies’ 40-man roster, while Adam Haseley continues to work his way into game shape after leaving the team in mid-April for personal reasons.

 

Quinn makes $578,000 this season, his last before three years of arbitration eligibility.

The Phillies welcomed J.T. Realmuto (bruised left hand) back from the IL Saturday morning but are still without two key starters in Harper and shortstop Didi Gregorius (elbow).
