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.
