Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said that Jimmy Rollins needed another day off to rest his groin that he tweaked in Sunday’s 1-0 win over the Washington Nationals.

“Jimmy still has some sensation in his upper leg area so he needs another day,” Sandberg said before the game.

Rollins was used as a pinch hitter on Monday and popped up in the ninth inning. Sandberg said he anticipates Rollins could pinch hit tonight.

Rollins is day-to-day, according to Sandberg.
