PHILADELPHIA CREAM – Philadelphia Phillies left fielder Roman Quinn was placed on the 60-day injury list with a left Achilles tendon injury on Sunday and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
“Based on the review, nothing told us he would be back,” Philadelphia coach Joe Girardi said after the Phillies 6-2 loss to Tampa Bay.
Quinn left Saturday’s game at Tampa Bay in the fifth inning. He tripped and fell around third base on Ronald Torreyes’ two-run double, got up and jumped home on his right leg. He had to be transported off the field.
The oft-injured Quinn ruptured his right Achilles tendon during off-season training in 2013. He is batting .173 with two RBIs and four goals stolen in 28 games this season.
His last injury came just four days after returning from three weeks to IL with a deep cut to his right index finger. He needed nine stitches to close the cut he had obtained while attempting a cavity.
Outfielder Travis Jankowski secured his contract with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Jankowski appeared in 350 major league games with San Diego and Cincinnati between 2015 and 2020, reaching 0.238 with eight homers and 42 RBIs.
