08:14 AM ET 10.02 | Jimmy Rollins nearly made it wire-to-wire. Before Monday, [Rollins] had played in all but three Phillies games this season. His only respite was when his baby girl was born in May. Finishing this season as the lineup's stalwart was a source of pride. Then he texted Scott Sheridan, the team's head athletic trainer, at 12:30 a.m. Monday. His right calf was hurting, the result of a pick-off play gone wrong Sunday. "I knew I had to do it," Rollins said. ... Rollins, who has the second-most plate appearances in 2012 of any National League player, is unsure whether he'll play again in 2012. He tested the sore calf with some grounders during batting practice. He thought it prudent to rest Monday, and perhaps longer, to avoid something larger.

No need to play through it given how the season went. Start looking ahead to next year.

No one cares how many more at bats he gets this year or he sits out the rest of the season unless you are kin folks.

So, in other words, Rollins may miss one game.
