Roman Quinn suffered an apparent left Achilles tendon injury on Saturday, the latest in a history of unlucky injuries for the Phillies outfielder.
The game came early in the fifth inning of Philadelphia’s game against the Rays; Quinn appeared to stumble around the third goal on a two-point brace from Ronald Torreyes, but still managed to get up and bring the tying point while hopping on his right foot. He had to be helped off the field after scoring the race.
Phillies fans going after Girardi are expected. Not here for that though. Joe is the real deal. It’s an Achilles injury for Roman Quinn. pic.twitter.com/k35pq2WGBw

The Phillies reported that Quinn left the game with an injury to his left Achilles, although the severity of the injury has yet to be determined. It will be reviewed on Sunday, according to a report from NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Michael barkann.
Quinn suffered several significant injuries during his five-year major league career, including quadriceps tear, Achilles tendon tear, elbow ligament tear, middle ligament tear, concussion , a broken toe, groin strain and oblique strain. He was on the COVID-19 injury list for a day in early May, then returned to the IL on May 4 after sustaining a cut to his right index finger; he needed nine stitches to close the cut he received during an attempted cavity.
Quinn returned to the lineup on Tuesday after spending three weeks on the IL. He held out for four days before sustaining Achilles’ injury.
He will earn $ 578,000 this season, Quinn’s last for three years of salary arbitration eligibility.
