Although there is still a ways to go before Jimmy Rollins' return, Wilson Valdez and Michael Martinez are filling in nicely at the plate so far in his sted.
Rollins' replacements have a hit in seven of the nine games he has not started this season and are batting .290. The Phils are 6-3 in those contests.
