UPDATE: Jimmy Rollins to undergo MRI on right calf

Apr 12, 2010, 7:15 PM EDT

UPDATE: According to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, Rollins will undergo an MRI on his right calf on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Jayson Werth, who left Monday’s game with a sore left hip, will not need an MRI exam.

3:57 PM: Jimmy Rollins was scratched from Monday’s home opener against the Nationals due to a right calf strain, reports Todd Zolecki of MLB.com.

Rollins was originally in the starting lineup, and was even introduced as such before the game, however he apparently injured his calf while warming up in the outfield. Juan Castro took the field in the top of the first inning.

There’s no word on the severity of the injury at this time. Rollins is easily one of the hottest hitters in the National League right now, batting .391 (9-for-23) with one home run, three RBI, two stolen bases and eight runs scored over the first six games of the season.

    Its all gravy Juan Castro just got a double knocking in 2 runs in the Bottom of the 5th with the Phillies trailing 4-2 to the Nationals to tie the game. Then he scored the leading run on a Polanco single which was followed up by a 2 run home run by Chase Utley. Afterwards Jason Werth hit a bloop single. Now Raul Ibanez is up with 2 outs in the bottom of the 5th.

    I mean… it’s all gravy because the Phillies are winning but stuff like this worries me.
    That and Werth left the game with right hip soreness after limping down the line after said bloop single. Figures I have Hamels, Rollins, AND Werth on my fantasy team. Terrific.
