RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A ruptured Achilles' tendon cost Quinn the first six weeks of the 2014 campaign, and he struggled initially upon his return, but Quinn went on to hit .261 with six homers and 29 steals in the second half with High-A Clearwater. He has received solid reviews on his transition to center field after spending his first two seasons as a shortstop. Questions remain about how much Quinn will hit as he moves up the ladder in the minors. He profiles as a potential leadoff hitter with elite speed if his bat develops. The Phillies will likely have him open the year at Double-A Reading.
Quinn, the 66th overall pick of the 2011 MLB draft, played in just 67 games last season due to a broken wrist that he suffered in late June. The Phillies had hoped he would be able to get some work in at their Dominican academy, but Quinn ruptured his Achilles tendon while running sprints during an offseason workout. He underwent surgery in November and the team hopes to have him back in action in the second half of the 2014 season. Quinn's fantasy value is tied to his speed, so an injury of this nature is cause for concern. He becomes a much less interesting prospect if he loses a step or two on the bases.
Quinn was selected in the second round of the 2011 draft out of high school. The Phillies moved him from center field to shortstop after the draft and had him start switch hitting during instructional ball. Quinn made his professional debut with Short-Season Williamsport last season and hit .281/.370/.408 with a home run in 267 at-bats. The numbers aren't overwhelming, but they are impressive when you consider the majority of his at-bats were as a left-handed hitter, and Quinn had only started hitting from the left side of the plate about a year earlier. He should only get more comfortable from that side of the plate as he accumulates more at-bats. Quinn's best tool is his elite speed. He grades out as an 80 on the 20-to-80 scale used by scouts. His 30 stolen bases in 66 games last season show the potential impact he could have on the stolen base category in fantasy leagues. Quinn, who will turn 20 this season, has a long way to go to reach the majors, but the Phillies believe he has the talent to be an impact player once he reaches the big leagues.
