Rollins on to rehab

Jimmy Rollins heads to Florida for rehab stint.

Rollins on to rehab


Like 50 Cent, Jimmy Rollins don't walk with a limp.

As such, Rollins is scheduled to leave Citizens Bank Park today at 2 p.m. to head to Clearwater, where he will begin a rehab stint in extended spring training games to test his ever-better sprained left ankle. He hopes to return in time for the Phillies' game Thursday in Arizona.

"It feels real good," said Rollins, louging in the clubhouse, pointing at his left foot, comfy in a sweet pair of denim Louis Vuitton boat shoes.

Rollins initially injured the ankle April 8. He has been in the 15-day disabled list since April 20.

Rollins has looked at the pitching mathcup and realizes that, if he starts upon his return, he will be facing Brandon Webb, perhaps the best pitcher in baseball over the past several seasons.

"Maybe I'll wait 'til Friday to come back," he said, then smiled. "No, really. I like facing guys like him."

Believe that hype: Rollins is 10-for-24 against Webb, one of the highest success rates in the league.
