Rollins 4-for-4 in extended spring training game

Jimmy Rollins took a big step forward today in his recovery from a sprained left ankle. After weeks of the same "day-to-day" prognosis, Rollins played four innings of an extended spring training game, finishing the day 4-for-4 and reporting no ill effects.

He'll play again tomorrow, but it is too early to know whether he will re-join the team during this road trip.

Rollins was eligible to be activated from the disabled list today.
