Phils sweep Brewers, set for Rollins' return

Fresh off a road sweep over the Milwaukee Brewers this weekend, the Phillies received more encouraging news today.

Jimmy Rollins will likely return to the lineup tonight against Pittsburgh. Sidelined since April 13, Rollins was off to a tremendous start at the top of the lineup. Shane Victorino has filled in very nicely in Rollins' absence, but the lineup is much more potent with Rollins back at the top.

J.A. Happ is expected to throw in the bullpen later this week. A timetable for his return has not been established, but the fact that he is able to throw a bullpen session is encouraging. Hopefully he is eyeing an early June return.
