The Reds are only expecting Scott Rolen to play in about 120 games this season. Rolen hit 17 home runs prior to the All-Star break last season, but just three after. He has dealt with neck, back and hamstring injuries in recent years. "I?m going to be hurt. Jay Bruce, Drew Stubbs are going to be hurt. It doesn?t matter if you?re 26 or 35. My back is going to hurt. My neck?s going to hurt. My hip, my hammy. That?s a given. But when am I hurt and when am I injured?" Rolen asked.
