Jimmy Rollins could be headed to DL on Wednesday

2972.jpgThe Phillies will decide on Wednesday whether Jimmy Rollins will require a stint on the disabled list. Rollins was a late scratch from Monday’s home opener against the Nationals due to a right calf strain.

Here’s the statement released by general manager Ruben Amaro Jr, via Todd Zolecki of MLB.com:

“Jimmy had an MRI at 2:00 this afternoon. We are reviewing the results
of the MRI and will decide on Jimmy’s status sometime tomorrow when we
have the opportunity to meet as a group.”

Odds are he’ll go to the disabled list, especially with word that he has a Grade 2 strain. Juan Castro will likely draw the majority of starts in his absence, but the Phillies could elect to recall Brian Bocock or purchase the contract of Wilson Valdez. Any way you slice it, the Phillies just found their new No. 8 hitter.

    Doubtful Charlie Manuel for the most part always keeps Carlos Ruiz 8th so who ever takes Jimmy’s place(it will be Juan Castro with Bocock being called up to replace Castro on the bench) will probably take over the 7th spot while Victorino assumes leadoff duty.
