News: Rollins, who was a late scratch from Friday's lineup, will return to the starting lineup Saturday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

News: Rollins was scratched from Friday's lineup, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

News: Rollins was 1 for 6 in Philadelphia's 14-10 victory over Texas on Monday but his only hit was a grand slam in the second inning.

News: Rollins made his 14th straight opening-day start for the Philadelphia Phillies, matching Cal Ripken's major league record for the most consecutive seasons starting at shortstop for the same franchise. Impact: Rollins, the Phillies' starting shortstop since 2001, also hit his 200th home run Monday against Texas. With a grand slam in the second inning, Rollins became only the 19th player in major league history with at least 400 doubles, 100 triples and 200 homers. Ripken was the opening-day starting shortstop for Baltimore from 1983-96. Rollins had been tied with former Cincinnati shortstop Dave Concepcion for the NL record. Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt holds the Phillies record for consecutive starts on opening day with 16 (1974-89). Larry Bowa started 12 openers in a row at shortstop.(STATS, 3:14pm)
