The Philadelphia Phillies put Jimmy Rollins back on the D.L.

Wow that didn’t last too long. Rollins has now played in 12 games this season for the Phillies and he is 14 of 41 (.341 avg, 1.096 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 2 homers, 7 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He will be missed as the alternatives are not the best. 38-year old righty swinging Juan Castro and 32-year old righty swinging Wilson Valdez (recalled from AAA) will share SS while Rollins is out of action. Castro has played in 24 games for the Phillies this year and he is 18 of 70 (.257 avg, .570 OPS) with 6 runs scored and 11 RBIs. He will likely get to play 3 out of every 5 games with Valdez getting the other two. Valdez has played in 18 games for the Phillies this year and he is 12 of 52 (.231 avg, .596 OPS) with 6 runs scored and 5 RBIs. The Phillies will likely give Rollins a little more time this time around to get healthy before activating him from the D.L.
