While the Philadelphia Phillies are looking to add some more talent to their 40 man roster during the off-season, top prospect Roman Quinn ruptured his right Achilles tendon near his Florida home while running some sprints.
According to CSN Philly, Phillies director of player development Joe Jordan spoke to the media and talked about Quinn and his ruptured Achilles tendon.
“It just popped. He thought he stepped in a hole. It’s a really tough one.” Joe Jordan via CSN Philly.
The 20 year old shortstop prospect was ranked as Philadelphia’s fifth ranked prospect. This isn’t the first time this young man has had to sit on the sidelines and go through rehab. He missed some time during 2013 after fracturing a bone in his left wrist.
He also underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL and already started that rehab program. From the way things look, he’ll end up having to go under the knife once again to not only improve his wrist, but now to fix his Achilles tendon.
Tough break, hopefully this plague of injuries doesn’t follow him to the Major League level when he finally reaches that point of his career.
