Jimmy Rollins Jimmy Rollins has three weeks before the postseason starts, which tends to be the healing timeframe for a strained hamstring.

"Studies show, even if it's a mild hamstring, even though the doctors like to say 7-to-10 days, it's usually three weeks," Rollins told the Philadelphia Daily News about his recovery from a strained hamstring, suffered last Wednesday. "And that's at the mildest, before I can go and do what I need to do. But I'm not going to have three weeks. Three weeks, that puts us right at the playoffs, so, I'm definitely going to try to do my best to come back before that."

GM Ruben Amaro and skipper Charlie Manuel have refused to characterize Rollins as anything but "day to day," and the switch-hitter is available for pinch hitting.

Rollins has missed time this season with a myriad of injuries and has hit just .245/.324./372 in 374 plate appearances as a 31-year-old. Wilson Valdez has picked up playing time in his absence, and has a putrid .247/.284/.351 line in 309 PA.

The Phillies are currently one game ahead of the Braves for first place in the NL East Division.
