Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) said Wednesday that it "would not be wise" for him to play again in 2014.
Rollins suffered a strained left hamstring on September 8 and hasn't appeared in a game since. He's been able to resume most baseball activities, but there is no reason for the Phillies to rush him back with only four games remaining on their regular-season schedule. The veteran shortstop will finish up with a .243/.323/.394 slash line, 17 home runs, and 28 stolen bases. Rollins is under contract for $11 million in 2015. Sep 25 - 10:53 AM
