VIDEO: Quintin Berry’s message to the teams that cut him

Quintin Berry was only supposed to be a temporary replacement for an injured Austin Jackson back in late May. Up until that time the 27-year-old Berry had been a career minor leaguer spending time with the Phillies, Padres, Mets and Reds organizations while seeing his fair share of releases, DFA’s and Rule 5 drafts. That’s why it’s been such a shock as to what he’s currently...

Berry, Nava, Quintana providing unexpected lifts

Just before he turned 27 last November, Quintin Berry signed with the Detroit Tigers as a minor league free agent. Little did anyone realize the path his career was about to take.
