Port St. Joe alum Roman Quinn called back up by the Phillies

CINCINNATI, OH (WJHG/WECP) Port St. Joe alum Roman Quinn is once again on the Phillies 25 man, big league roster.

The 25 year old outfielder, a second round pick of the Phillies back in 2011, has been hampered by injuries in the last few years, but when he's been healthy he's put up good numbers.

He's fought his way back from a torn Achilles tendon, and most recently, a torn ligament in one of his fingers.

He had surgery for that latter injury back in May and after rehabbing after that operation made it back to Triple-A Lehigh a month ago.
He played well there the last 25 games, hitting 296 in Triple-A, prompting Friday's call up.

This Roman's second call up to the parent club, the first coming in 2016, during which he hit 263 in 57 at bats, and also made a stellar play in center field with this throw to the plate.

Roman joined the team Friday in Cincinnati, making it there in time for the game, and was called on to pinch hit in the 7th inning, bouncing out to third in that lone at bat. The Phillies losing the game 6-4.
