8:34 AM: Rollins told David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News that he is unsure whether Friday’s injury will require another stint on the disabled list.

“An hour later, it feels a lot better than it did when I came out,” he
said, “so we’ll see.”

Friday, 9:59 PM: Zolecki reports that Rollins was diagnosed with a mild right calf strain. He’s currently listed as day-to-day.

9:29 PM: Zolecki assumes that Rollins aggravated his calf, but there’s no official word from the team.

9:09 PM: Jimmy Rollins left Friday’s game against the Red Sox with a leg injury, according to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com. Rollins singled to right field with one out in the sixth inning, but pulled up lame a few feet down the line. He limped off the field and was replaced in the lineup by Juan Castro.

Of course, the immediate concern is whether Rollins aggravated his right calf injury. He was just activated from the disabled list on Monday.

UPDATE: The Indians have placed Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

8:46 AM: Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.

Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.

Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
