Jimmy Rollins has a strained calf for the Philadelphia Phillies

It has been all good news for the Philadelphia Phillies early in the season, that was until their star shortstop strained his calf.  Rollins injured his calf in the Phillies win over the Houston Astros on Sunday and missed Monday’s game against the Washington Nationals.  The injury seems to be more than just a minor strain and is listed as a grade 2 strain.  Rollins will be undergoing an MRI today, but it is very likely that he will have a stint on the DL.  Rollins was off to a great start this season with 9 hits, 3 RBIs, 1 HR, 7 walks, and 2 steals, giving him a .391 BA and a .516 OBP in six games.  The Phillies still have a very strong lineup without Rollins, but the red-hot Placido Palanco (.484 BA, 10 RBIs) probably won’t be getting as many good pitches to hit without the luxury of hitting behind Rollins.  Hopefully Rollins can bounce back quickly from this calf injury, but expect him to be out a little while.
