Eflin, Quinn to see Phils' doctor

June 5th, 2017

ATLANTA -- The Phillies hope Zach Eflin and receive good news Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Eflin and Quinn are scheduled to see Phillies head physician Steven Cohen. Eflin experienced soreness in his right elbow in the fourth inning of Friday's start with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. It is believed to be the first time Eflin experienced elbow soreness this season.

Eflin made eight starts with the Phillies from April 18-May 28. He went 0-3 with a 6.13 ERA before being optioned.

"He had no issues up here as far as anything that was told to the trainers," Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said.

Quinn has not played since May 28, when he hurt his left elbow sliding into third base in a game against Louisville.

"He's progressed to soft toss, hitting off the tee," Proefrock said. "My impression is that he's getting close to playing."

Quinn is hitting .274 with eight doubles, three triples, two home runs, 13 RBIs, 10 stolen bases and a .732 OPS in 45 games.
