Phillies SS Rollins out vs Dodgers

Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is out again with a bruised

right knee.

Rollins was not in the starting lineup for Monday’s game against

Los Angeles. Manager Charlie Manuel and general manager Ruben Amaro

Jr. say Rollins has soreness and swelling and should miss another

game or two.

Rollins fouled a ball off his right knee against Pittsburgh on

Saturday and was taken out of the game by the bottom of the

third.

Also, Amaro says reliever Brad Lidge felt discomfort in his

right elbow during a bullpen session Monday morning. Lidge was in

Clearwater, Fla., and will return to Philadelphia to meet with team

doctor Michael Ciccotti on Tuesday.

Lidge has been sidelined all season because of shoulder

issues.
