Jimmy Rollins Placed On Paternity Leave To Spend Time With His Newborn Daughter

First off, congratulations to Jimmy and Johari Rollins on the birth of their daughter Camryn Drew Rollins! It looks as if Chase Utley's son Benjamin Cooper has a playmate.

The Phillies shortstop became a dad for the first time late Sunday night. Of course all of the details are private with the Rollins's, but what is known is that she is a healthy girl and that her father has been placed on the paternity list to spend time with her.

The Phillies called up catcher Erik Kratz from Triple-A Lehigh this afternoon in place of Rollins' spot. Until further notice, Freddy Galvis, Pete Orr, and Mike Fontenot will handle middle infield duties.

All of the best to the Rollins family on this joyus occasion! Congrats, Jimmy and Johari!
