Phillies Release Robb Quinlan

The Phillies granted Robb Quinlan his release after he asked for it, according to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki (on Twitter). They signed Quinlan to a minor league deal in December.

The eight-year veteran has spent his entire MLB career with the Angels as a backup at the corner infield and outfield positions. He has a .276/.322/.401 career line, but fell off to .121/.171/.182 last year and the Angels released him.

Wonder what the reason is? Thought he would make a decent replacement if Howard were to go down.

I think they’re already filling a possible 1B slot with Gload/Mayberry/platoon (Mayberry was a 1B all through college, moved to OF in the bigs but they’ve been playing him at 1B this spring)

Doesn’t want to go to the minors and he had no shot at the big league roster.

It’s off to the Pirates for Quinlan. Then DFA. Then “retire.”

Saw Quinlan play for the Bee’s last season, and found out he was the 2002 PCL MVP!

Rizzotti is ahead on the depth chart. The Rizz just keeps on mashing.
