The most notable difference in Quinn's batting line between this year and last year was BABIP. His BB and K rates held pretty steady, so he really wasn't doing that much worse than he was the year before. This is a huge blow to Quinn, who is one of the few highly ranked prospects in the system with a significant upside. As you said, it affects his development time (not just as a hitter but as a fielder who was trying to learn to play SS) and even when he comes back, who knows if he'll have the same speed.
