2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Tabbed as the fastest player in the 2011 draft, Quinn is an emerging middle-infield prospect the Phillies feel has enough upside in his bat to become a first-division, top-of-the-order hitter. They will leave him at shortstop as long as they can, though if he doesn’t fully develop there, center field is a real option. For obvious reasons, his skills and potential positions have led to comparisons with both Michael Bourn and Jimmy Rollins. A breakout in his full-season debut would have him shooting up prospect lists for 2014.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the outlook for Roman Quinn at this point? The Achilles injury was terrifying, but it appears he's back on track.
(ithmus from New York)
He's done being a SS, both because it was a work in progress and because he's on the same developmental track as JP Crawford. He's a CF for now, where his top-end speed should play well. I didn't see him after he switched positions, but I'll get a look at the defense in the AFL in a few weeks.

I don't know if he's going to hit though. He embraces the small ball/speed game, so that's good, but there are some holes in his swing(s). He doesnt have much power but he doesnt get the bat knocked out of his hand either. Speed is awesome, but he has to get on base to make it play. He's also not a very good base stealer/runner for a guy who is so fast. He makes all kinds of mistakes. The package is nice but he still has a long way to go. (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Roman Quinn? If or when will be become a regular and what does he bring to the table?
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
A guy whose game is predicated on speed ruptured his Achilles. To say the least, I am not optimistic right now. (Ronit Shah)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why aren't you telling people to buy low on Roman Quinn yet?
(Ben C from Boston)
Because he can't hit. (Bret Sayre)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you don't consider yourself a fantasy baseball guy but I've based a lot of my minor league keeper decisions on your prospect evaluations at BPN in the past. I have Gustavo Cabrera and Roman Quinn who have both been seriously injured this offseason. I have 3 extra players rostered to chose from to replace them: Sean Newcomb, Touki Toussaint, Jacob Gatewood. Which two are your favorite? Highest ceilings?
(Matt from Charm City)
It never ceasese to amaze me that fantasy leagues are now digging into undrafted guys.

I would lean Toussaint and Gatewood, but that's not a firm answer, just because so much can change between now and draft day, let alone now and A-ball. (Mark Anderson)
2013-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts about Roman Quinn's potential?
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
Nil. I hate pure speed guys as prospects. Hate 'em. (Sam Miller)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)80 tools are rare. We hear a lot about guys with 80 power (Gallo, Sano), 80 speed (Billy Hamilton and less speedy 80-speedsters), 80 defensive profiles (Hedges), 80 bat speed (Baez) and 80 arms (Bethancourt). Are there any guys you can think of who have 80s that are a bit unheralded?
(Derek from Buffalo Grove)
Not really, I've seen Roman Quinn an 80 runner, but most guys with 80 tools you hear a lot about. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are Lewis Brinson, Blake Swihart and/or Roman Quinn candidates for the top 101 in the offseason?
(dmartinez87 from NY)
Brinson and Swihart, no doubt. I'm not as high on Quinn. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Roman Quinn the real deal and how would you rank him against the other super speedsters, Hamilton and DeShields?
(cal guy from cal)
He could be in time, but not yet. He's well behind the other two. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Roman Quinn, SS PHI? I've seen some pretty handsome analysts hype him up from a Fantasy POV.
(BenC22 from TDG)
Come again for Big Fudge? (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Zach Mortimer gave some promising notes on Roman Quinn in his Notes from the Field column. Do you think he's got a real shot to be a top 100 prospect next year? More?
(Broken Arrow from Texas)
It's possible. He's very, very fast, and if the bat has more meat than just a slapper, he could certainly jump up prospect lists. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Did Roman Quinn get any consideration?
(Behemoth from Scotland)
Not really. He's very fast. Big questions about the bat. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speedsters Delino Deshields Jr. and Roman Quinn are (understandably) caught in the shadow of Billy Hamilton's dust. How do you see them in terms of their big league futures?
(Francois from Toronto)
The prospect staff recently ranked Delino DeShields Jr fourth in the Astros system. He grades as an 80 runner, and should be a huge stolen base option in fantasy should he put it together and reach the majors. His play last year provides more optimism for his rough 2011 season. As for Quinn, his speed is also game changing. There is a big gap between what he is and what he can become. Don't expect him to be an impact fantasy player in the near future, but he certainly warrants monitoring in dynasty leagues. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-10-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Roman Quinn, he put up some of the best numbers in the NY-P league and it seems he might be able to stick at SS?
(MattWinks from Philly)
He hit pretty well in the New York-Penn League, and demonstrated his plus-plus speed with 30 steals and 11 triples, but his work at shortstop still leaves something to be desired. Wouldn't be surprised to see him moved to center field. (Bradley Ankrom)
