Biographical Information[edit]

Roman Quinn is known to have one of the strongest throwing arms among major league outfielders. This is part of the reason why he has been used as a pitcher a few times by the Philadelphia Phillies, starting in 2018. His first couple of pitching appearances came in blowout losses, including one game in 2018 when he gave up 7 runs in 1 2/3 innings. On August 2, 2019, however, the situation was very different, as the Phillies had emptied their bench with the score tied at 3-3 entering the 14th inning of a game against the Chicago White Sox. In desperation, manager Gabe Kapler sent Quinn to the mound from center field, with starting pitcher Vince Velasquez playing left field. The two actually did quite well, with Velasquez throwing out a runner at the plate and making a tremendous tumbling catch in left field, while Quinn gave his team a chance by holding the White Sox scoreless in the 14th, and then giving up just one run in the 15th. However, the Phils were unable to score in their two turns at bat, with Roman making the final out of the game by striking out against Josh Osich in the bottom of the 15th. He was thus charged with the 4-3 loss.
