Earlier today Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr updated Jimmy Rollins’ injury status and said that he had sustained a bad bruise to his knee and that there was a chance he could go on the DL.
“He bruised the patella pretty well and another bone,” Amaro said. “He got himself pretty good. He has a fairly deep bruise on the patella.”
This afternoon, Jimmy Rollins himself couldn’t disagree more.
“If I went on the DL, it would be because they made a bad decision,” Rollins said. “You can write that.”
A pretty strong statement from J-Roll. Obviously the MRI revealed nothing broken, so when he can play again would seem to rest solely on how he feels. Clearly he doesn’t feel two weeks away.
