Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins hasn't played since fouling a pitch off his knee Saturday and is now a candidate for the disabled list, according to Matt Gelb of An MRI on Rollins' right knee revealed a deep bone bruise on both his patella (knee cap) and another bone in the area, so the Phillies will decide within the next few days whether to put him on the 15-day DL.

"We'll see how it reacts," general manager Ruben Amaro told

Rollins apparently would be none too pleased if he was placed on the DL.

"If I go on the DL, it's because they made a bad decision," Rollins said (Gelb via Twitter)

So what we'll have here is the classic battle between a competitor wanting to stay on the field -- believing he can play through an injury -- and management being worried he's going to hurt himself worse if he plays in the short-term.

Rollins, 32, is hitting .268 with 32 runs, 14 stolen bases and a .340 on-base percentage.

If Rollins is forced to hit the DL, Wilson Valdez will likely get most of the work at short.
