Rollins Remains Day to Day with Hamstring Injury
Jimmy Rollins remains day-to-day with tightness in his right hamstring.
He hobbled around the bases in the third inning last night in a 10-6 victory over the Marlins. He reached on a double and scored on a single, clearly having trouble running. Wilson Valdez took his place in the fourth.
Charlie Manuel indicated dehydration could have affected Rollins, who was ill.
“He’s better today,” Ruben Amaro Jr. said today. “I’m not sure when he’s going to play, but he’s better. We don’t think it’s a long term issue.”
Any chance he plays tomorrow night against the New York Mets at Citi Field?
“It’s possible, but he could miss the whole weekend,” Amaro said. “He could play tomorrow. He could play Saturday. He could play Sunday or Monday. I don’t know yet.”
Amaro said if the Phillies have decided on Saturday’s starter — it’ll be either Kyle Kendrick or Vance Worley — he didn’t know.
The Phillies cut loose Nate Robertson after last night’s dreadful effort. They also placed Scott Mathieson on the DL.
