Rollins participates in simulated game

As expected, Jimmy Rollins saw live pitching today for the first time since suffering a hamstring straing against the Marlins on Sept. 8. The short stop took swings off of several Phillies pitchers, including Antonio Bastardo and David Herndon. Rollins also did some running.

Rollins participates in simulated game

As expected, Jimmy Rollins saw live pitching today for the first time since suffering a hamstring straing against the Marlins on Sept. 8. The short stop took swings off of several Phillies pitchers, including Antonio Bastardo and David Herndon. Rollins also did some running.

General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said yesterday that a return by Rollins this weekend was still a possibility, although he did not give a clear indication on how likely such a return would be.

In 12 games without Rollins this month, the Phillies are 11-1 and hitting .295 with a .388 on base percentage while averaging 5.6 runs per game. During those 12 games, fill-in short stop Wilson Valdez has hit .333 with a .400 on base percentage, four doubles and five RBI.
