According to a source close to the situation, Jimmy Rollins’ injury is more than just a sprained ankle. Jimmy Rollins has a broken bone in his ankle. On April 20th, Jimmy was placed on the 15-day DL for a sprained ankle, but he could stay on the DL longer than first anticipated.
The 2007 National League MVP has only played in 12 of the 21 games this year, but the Phillies have managed well without him. However, Rollins is a vital piece to this team if they have any chance of winning back-to-back National League East titles.
