Robb Quinlan went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles on Sunday.

A fine performance, but the fact that Quinlan was starting at first base just helps reinforce how desperate the Halos are for help at the position in the absence of Kendry Morales. Recently recalled from the minors, Quinlan entered the game without a hit in 14 major-league at-bats this year and has posted a sub-700 OPS in each of his past three seasons.

Quinlan was the rumored choice to get the first batch of starts at first base in Kendry Morales' stead. He's not exactly an overwhelming option; he's hitting just .253/.323/.322 in the hitter-friendly PCL. The Angels will almost certainly look elsewhere for a long-term option, but their search starts here.

Angels signed infielder-outfielder Robb Quinlan to a minor league contract.

The 32-year-old utility man batted .243/.275/.339 with two homers and 14 RBI in 115 at-bats with the last season while playing all around the field. The problem is that he isn't particularly useful on defense or with the bat, both significant reasons why he was left unsigned.

Lyle Spencer of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers are interested in utility man Robb Quinlan as a fourth outfielder.

Quinlan, 32, has also received interest from the Rockies. The veteran batted just .243/.275/.339 with two homers and 14 RBI in 115 at-bats with the Angels last season, but offers some versatility in the field, even though defensive metrics don't rate him highly. As it stands, Xavier Paul and Jason Repko figure to compete for the fourth outfielder gig in Los Angeles. They'd probably be better off staying in-house.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies continue to search for versatile utility player and have Robb Quinlan high on their wish list.

Quinlan, 32, batted .243/.275/.339 with two homers and 14 RBI in 115 at-bats with the Angels last season and brings little to the table outside of his versatility. According to Renck, the club is also considering Melvin Mora and Fernando Tatis.
