Prospects Plus: Lakewood's Roman Quinn

Name: Roman Quinn
Team: Lakewood BlueClaws
Position: Shortstop
Prospect Status: Second ranked prospect in Phillies organization
Friday vs. Kannapolis: 2 for 5 (video highlights of his performance Friday below).

Positive: The perfect replacement for Jimmy Rollins.Quinn has excellent speed and that showed on a bunt base hit he picked up during the game on Friday night. Last year he stole 30 bases in short season ball. His speed impacts all aspects of the game. Has developed into a solid switch hitter.

Negatives: His positioning on defense can be questions as well as his foot work. He is never going to hit for a huge power. He is still three years away from making the big show. He is a high risk high reward type of prospect, according to Baseball America.
