The Phillies had until midnight Monday to sign their draft picks. Earlier, they announced the signing of outfielder Larry Greene, who was the No. 39 pick overall.

Quinn, 18, is a switch hitter who batted .385 with a .610 on-base percentage at Port St. Joe's High School in Florida. Overall, the Phillies signed 30 of their 50 draft picks, including nine of their first 10 selections.
