(WMBB) – Port St. Joe alum and Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn is done for the season after he suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon in Philadelphia game against Tampa Bay on Saturday night.
The injury happened as Quinn was trying to score from first base in the fifth inning. Quinn fell as he was rounding third base and still managed to score the run as he was hopping in to home plate.
After he scored, he was carried off the field.
Quinn will undergo surgery later this week and the expected recovery is 9 to 12 months.
This is not his first Achilles tear as he tore his right Achilles in 2013.
Quinn was placed on the 60-day injured list and was replaced on the Phillies active roster by Travis Jankowski on Sunday.
