Update: Jimmy Rollins will have an MRI tomorrow with a grade 2 calf strain. Jayson Werth will not, told Leslie Gudel he came out as a precaution after hurting right hip. Wonder if Rollins will participate in the Red Bull challenge scheduled for the parkway… doubt it.
In the first injury to force a regular out of action this season, Jimmy Rollins was a last-minute scratch today's lineup card due to a right calf strain suffered during pre-game warmups.
Adding to the Phils' injury woes, Jayson Werth left the game with a left hip injury. He was slow getting to first base on his final at bat after single to CF.
Thankfully neither injury sounds too serious, but I'm sure since it's early in the season, they will ease them back into the lineup. There is no need to risk something getting worse if rest will help. It also is fortunate that on the schedule they have only the Nationals and an open date (kind of the same thing) between now and Friday.
