Roman Quinn is getting his legs back.

The Port St. Joe graduate heated up over the past few weeks while coming back from serious injury.

Quinn, a former second round pick of the Philadelphia Phillies, is playing for the Clearwater Threshers in Class A Advanced ball.

Quinn had four hits last Thursday, just a few days after collecting five in one game and as of the beginning of this week had steadily raised his batting average over the past month.

Over his last 10 games, Quinn hit .385 with a .913 OPS.

He has raised his batting average to .257 with 37 runs scored, 27 RBIs and 13 extra base hits in 62 games.

He has also stolen 22 bases in 29 attempts, leaving him in the top five of the Florida State League, even though he was not even in the lineup until mid-May.
