Phillies minor leaguer Roman Quinn ruptured his Achilles’ tendon while doing offseason workouts and is out indefinitely, according to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com

Quinn is a 20-year-old shortstop and 2011 second-round draft pick who just last week ranked fifth on Baseball America‘s annual list of the Phillies’ top prospects. Salisbury reports that Quinn has already undergone surgery. He previously missed the entire second half of this year after a hit by pitch left him with a fractured wrist.

It’s possible that Quinn could miss the entire 2014 season and as a prospect whose game is based largely on speed and athleticism the injury is particularly worrisome.

    I’m selfishly sorry to hear this, I thought he would be very high on the list of prospects that would be traded to help this team acquire talent that could help now. J.P,Crawford is the SS. of the future.
