Roman Quinn suffered an apparent injury to his left Achilles tendon on Saturday, the latest in an unlucky injury history for the Phillies outfielder.
The play came in the top of the fifth inning of Philadelphia’s game against the Rays; Quinn appeared to trip while rounding third base on a two-run double by Ronald Torreyes but still managed to get up and bring in the tying run while hopping on his right foot. He had to be helped off the field after scoring the run.
Phillies fans turning on Girardi is expected. Not here for that though. Joe’s 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, though the severity of the injury has yet to be determined. He will be examined Sunday, per a report from NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Michael Barkann.
Quinn has suffered several significant injuries over his five-year major league career, including a torn quadriceps, torn right Achilles, strained elbow ligament, torn middle finger ligament, concussion, broken toe, groin strain and oblique strain. He was on the COVID-19 injury list for a day in early May, then went back on the IL on May 4 after suffering a gash to his right index finger; he needed nine stitches to close the cut, which he suffered on a bunt attempt.
Quinn returned to the lineup Tuesday after a three-week stint on the IL. He lasted four days before suffering the Achilles injury.
He will make $578,000 this season, Quinn’s last before three years of salary arbitration eligibility.
