Jimmy Rollins said he is hoping that he will return to the Phillies line-up before the end of the regular season. But that's about as specific of a timetable as we can gather right now with regards to the short stop's strained right hamstring.
"I hope so," Rollins said when asked if he thought he'd be ready by the end of the regular season. "Studies show, even if it's a mild hamstring, even though the doctors like to say 7-to-10 days, it's usually three weeks. And that's at the mildest, before I can go and do what I need to do. But I'm not going to have three weeks. Three weeks, that puts us right at the playoffs, so, I'm definitely going to try to do my best to come back before that."
Rollins strained the hamstring last Wednesday.
Neither general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. or manager Charlie Manuel could (or, perhaps, would) say when they expect Rollins back, other than to label him "day-to-day."
