Next 24 to 48 Hours Big for Rollins
Jimmy Rollins could be headed to the disabled list after all.
Rollins received a MRI exam on his right knee yesterday. Results showed he had a “pretty significant bone bruise,” according to Ruben Amaro Jr. He said bruising on soft tissue has caused some inflammation. The Phillies will know if Rollins is a DL candidate in the next 24 to 48 hours.
“He got himself pretty good,” Amaro said.
Rollins fouled a ball off his knee Saturday in Pittsburgh. He played two more innings before leaving the game. He has not appeared in three games since with Wilson Valdez playing shortstop.
“He improved a lot from Sunday to Monday,” Amaro said.
The question is how much he will improve from Tuesday to Wednesday or Thursday?
