Rollins has one more hurdle before return

NEW YORK -- Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Jimmy Rollins played well in two rehab games this week with Class A Clearwater.

Amaro said Rollins, who has been on the disabled list most of the season with a strained right calf, will play nine innings Friday night with Clearwater. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said Rollins will rejoin the team in Philadelphia on Saturday. He could be activated as early as Sunday in the series finale against the Twins at Citizens Bank Park, or Tuesday in the series opener against the Cleveland Indians.
