WASHINGTON -- Manager Charlie Manuel said on Tuesday that Jimmy Rollins probably will not play again this season. The season ends on Wednesday, so this is not catastrophic news.
Rollins, who is dealing with an issue in his right calf, finishes the season hitting .250 with 33 doubles, five triples, 23 home runs, 68 RBIs, 102 runs and 30 stolen bases. His .746 OPS percentage ranks sixth among 21 qualifying shortstops in baseball.
Rollins signed a three-year, $33 million extension in the offseason. If the Phillies can continue to get that kind of production from him -- although they would like to see a bump in batting average and on-base percentage (.316) -- they will be very pleased with the deal.
