Word from the Phillies' dugout is that Jimmy Rollins has left today's game with a right groin strain that he apparently suffered while fielding a groundball up the middle at the start of the second inning.

The official prognosis is day-to-day.

Wilson Valdez is taking his place.

Rollins batted in the first and second innings, grounding out both times.

He played the bottom of the second in the field, but was removed from the game prior to the bottom of the third.

Rollins appeared to grimace after fielding a ball up the middle, turning, and throwing to first base on the first out of the second, a groundout by Jesus Flores.

The groin is one of the few areas of the lower body Rollins has not hurt over the last year-and-a-half. This year, he missed a brief period of time after fouling a ball off his knee. Last year, he battled foot, calf and hamstring strains.
