WASHINGTON — Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is out of the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals because of an injured right calf.
It’s only the fourth game Rollins has missed this season.
He said before Monday’s game against Washington he felt his calf tighten up while playing a day earlier.
Rollins is hitting .250 with 23 homers, 68 RBIs and 30 steals in 2012.
Philadelphia was eliminated from playoff contention after winning the previous five National League East titles.
