Colorado Rockies Release 6-Year Veteran Outfielder

Roman Quinn's journey in professional baseball has taken some twists and turns.

Initially, the Colorado Rockies decided to part ways with him, releasing him from his minor league contract after a brief stint with the team.

Despite joining Colorado on a minor league deal in late July, Quinn didn't get the chance to return to the major leagues during his time there.

Throughout the season, the 30-year-old outfielder also had stints in the minors with the Milwaukee Brewers and Cleveland Guardians, where he posted a .631 OPS, hitting two home runs and stealing 16 bases in 48 Triple-A games.

It was apparent that Quinn faced challenges on his quest to make it back to the big leagues.

His recent performance in Triple-A hasn't been stellar, as he struggled with a slash line of .149/.337/.194 in 25 games split between the Brewers and Guardians this year.

Over his six-year career, the 30-year-old holds a .226/.303/.348 triple-slash line, with eight home runs, 45 RBIs, 43 stolen bases, and 222 games played. Photo Credit: Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports
