2019 Fantasy Outlook
Quinn battled the injury bug yet again in 2018, limiting him to a total of 78 games, 50 of which came at the big-league level. He performed capably in his first extended taste of major-league action, hitting a solid .267/.324/.420 with two homers and 10 steals in 143 plate appearances. It took a .351 BABIP to get him to that slash line, but with his speed and contact profile, a high BABIP seems sustainable. Prorated over a full season of 600 plate appearances, he was on pace for 42 steals, which would have ranked third in the league. However, it would represent a major step for him to stay injury-free and get anywhere close to that much playing time. Given the continuing decline of the stolen base, he’s absolutely worth a roster spot in most formats while healthy, especially if he can somehow seize an everyday role. Read Past Outlooks

Expected to open on injured list
OFPhiladelphia Phillies
March 19, 2019
Quinn (oblique) is expected to open the season on the injured list, Todd Zolecki of reports.
A decent small-sample run at the end of last season generated some buzz for Quinn heading into this year, but the injury bug bit him yet again, and it's now unclear when he'll make his season debut. Odubel Herrera will win the center field job by default, but Quinn could still make a push at some point this year when Herrera goes on one of his customary cold streaks.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Quinn missed the final four months of last season with an elbow injury, and has missed significant time in previous seasons with oblique, quadriceps, hip, Achilles and wrist injuries. To put it a different way, here are his games played totals over his six pro seasons: 66, 67, 88, 58, 92, 45. To make matters worse, he turns 25 in May and has played just 60 games above Double-A, so he's probably not quite ready for an extended look against big-league pitching. Following the Carlos Santana signing, the Phillies now have four big-league outfielders who probably deserve everyday at-bats, so Quinn might need a couple injuries to get a long look. All that said, he is one of a handful of players in pro ball who could realistically steal 40-plus bases over a full season, so he needs to remain on the radar of owners in almost all formats. Think of Quinn as Mallex Smith with significantly more injury risk and significantly less opportunity.
Quinn got off to a terrible start at Double-A last season as he struggled to find his timing at the plate. He got things going in May and June before suffering an oblique injury that sidelined him until early August. A concussion in late August also cost him about a week of action. Despite those issues, Quinn's numbers at Double-A Reading helped him earn a promotion to the majors in September, and he played frequently down the stretch. Quinn has top-shelf speed that could make him a tremendous asset for stolen bases, but he must work to maximize how often he gets on base. His 21.1 percent strikeout rate at Double-A and 27.5 percent rate in the majors are too high for a player whose game is built almost solely on thefts. He has also been extremely injury-prone throughout his career. Following the signing of Michael Saunders, Quinn seems to be out of the mix for a regular spot in the lineup at the major league level for the time being. However, the 23-year-old is expected to return to the majors at some point later in the season given his strong big-league debut, so he makes for a nice flier for owners chasing cheap steals late in drafts.
Quinn was putting together a solid season for Double-A Reading before suffering a tear in his hip flexor in mid-June that ended his season. Quinn showed some signs of growth before getting hurt, cutting his strikeout rate from 20.9 percent at High-A Clearwater in 2014 to 16.3 percent last season with Reading. His walk rate did dip slightly, but his BB/K ratio basically held steady thanks to the reduced strikeouts. He also continued to be very aggressive on the base paths with 29 steals in 58 games. The biggest concern with Quinn at this point are the lower body injuries. In addition to the hip injury, Quinn has also ruptured his Achilles. Speed is a major part of Quinn's game, so leg injuries have the potential to sap his future fantasy value. He will likely open the year back at Double-A, but could see time with the Phillies later in the year if an opportunity opens up in their outfield.
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.
