After appearing only as a pinch-runner in the last nine days, Roman Quinn was officially placed on the DL with a right finger sprain. The move was made retroactive to May 13, but the last time that Quinn had an at-bat or played in the field was on May 6th against Rochester.

Quinn suffered the injury sliding into a base in the game against the Red Wings and initially it was thought that he would miss just a few days. At one point, Lehigh Valley manager Gary Jones told reporters that “he’s day-to-day and probably could play if we needed him to. Instead, the injury now appears to be more significant than originally disclosed and he’ll require a stint on the DL.

Jones used Quinn as a pinch-runner last Thursday in a game against Buffalo. Quinn wound up stealing a base and scoring a run in that game. It’s unclear if he may have aggravated the injury on the stolen base attempt.

The 25-year old has had a plethora of injuries with the last one coming during the 2017 season when he injured his elbow, also on a slide into a base. That injury cost him to miss three months, ending his season early.
