Rollins Hurts Knee, Leaves Game With Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins left Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates during the third inning with a bruised right knee.
Rollins fouled a ball off his knee during the first at-bat of the game. He stayed in the game and doubled before scoring. But the 2007 National League MVP was noticeably limping throughout the following two innings and Wilson Valdez eventually replaced him in the lineup.
Saturday’s game came a day after the Phillies finally had their entire everyday lineup healthy and available for the first time this season.
