Los Angeles Dodgers injury update: Jimmy Rollins expected to return Tuesday

Kirby Lee/ USA Today Sports

The Los Angeles Dodgers received good news on Sunday, that infielder Jimmy Rollins could be inserted back in the line-up as early as Tuesday, September 15. According to, Mark Saxson of ESPN, Rollins has missed the last five straight games with a bruised right index finger.

The MRI showed no significant injuries but he has inflammation in the tendon near his knuckle. It remains to be seen if Rollins will participate in their game against the Colorado Rockies; it will be dependent upon how he reacts during batting and fielding practices.

But it may be beneficial for the Dodgers to let Rollins rest a few more days and give rookie Corey Seager  some extra starts. He is batting an overwhelming .467 with five extra-base hits in nine games.

It will allow Seager to get more reps to get used to the Major league level and it also gives Rollins some more rest so he can stay fresh for October.
