Devil Rays lose Rolls for up to four weeks
St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Tampa Bay Devil Rays rightfielder
Damian Rolls suffered a nondisplaced fracture of his right thumb in Tuesday's
victory over Toronto.
Rolls, who is expected to be sidelined for three-to-four weeks, was injured

inning. Rolls landed on his right hand and his thumb bent sideways and
dislocated at the last knuckle.
He stayed on the field for the rest of the frame but, after the game, the
thumb was placed in a splint.

season. He had surgery and missed 10 weeks.
In 15 games this season , Rolls is hitting .219 with two RBI.
Rolls was originally the Dodgers' first round selection in the 1996 June free
