Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn (Achilles) placed on 60-day IL
The Philadelphia Phillies placed outfield Roman Quinn on the 60-day injured list Sunday with a left Achilles injury.
Quinn had to be carried off the field Saturday after sustaining the injury while running the bases in the fifth inning of a 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg, Fla.
The Phillies did not provide an update on the injury or give a timetable for his recovery.
In a corresponding transaction, Philadelphia called up outfielder Travis Jankowski from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to replace Quinn on the 26-man roster.Also Read:

Quinn was on first base when Ronald Torreyes rifled a double to right. Odubel Herrera easily scored from second and Quinn was racing around the bases before suddenly collapsing between third and home.
Quinn got up and took another step with both feet before he hopped on his right foot three times to reach home plate and score the run. He fell to the ground and was in apparent pain while being attended to by a team trainer before being carried off.
The 28-year-old Quinn was activated from the 10-day injured list by the Phillies on Tuesday when outfielder Bryce Harper (wrist) went on the IL. Quinn was on the list with a cut right index finger.
This is the second major Achilles injury Quinn has suffered in his career. He ruptured his right Achilles in workouts following the 2013 season.
“Man I feel for Quinn,” teammate Andrew McCutchen wrote on Twitter. “Im hurt for him knowing how hard this man has been grinding away. He is a game changer. For him to get hurt like that and still finish the play shows how bad he wants it every time hes out there. Heal up bro.”
Quinn is batting .173 with two RBIs in 28 games. He is a career .228 hitter with eight homers, 38 RBIs and 39 steals in 178 games with the Phillies since 2016.
