Phillies Outfielder Elects Free Agency

The Philadelphia Phillies recently designated Roman Quinn for assignment. After clearing waivers, the outfielder has rejected a demotion to Triple-A and has elected to become a free agent instead. 

Quinn played in 23 games for the Phillies this year, and it's fair to say that he struggled. During them, he has zero home runs, three RBIs, and a very low .162 batting average. Needless to say, he had trouble hitting for contact, and that ultimately led to Philadelphia parting ways with him.

Quinn has made appearances in six seasons with the Phillies over his career. Yet, during them, he was never able to cement himself as a regular. In 201 career games with the Phillies, he has eight home runs, 41 RBIs, and a .223 batting average. Let's see if he's able to find a new home and improve upon these stats from here.
