PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins left the game against the Florida Marlins after the third inning with tightness in his right hamstring.

The Phillies said Rollins is day to day. Rollins gingerly ran to second base and didn't slide on a two-out double in the third inning Wednesday night. He didn't have his usual burst around third base when he scored on Carlos Ruiz's single. Rollins slid at home and slowly walked back to the dugout. He had his head down as he talked with manager Charlie Manuel. He was 2-for-2.

Wilson Valdez replaced Rollins in the fourth with the Phillies leading 4-0.

The three-time All-Star shortstop has twice been on the 15-day disabled list this season because of a calf problem. He got hurt warming up before the Phillies' home opener and missed 31 games before re-injuring himself less than a week later on May 21.
