Baker uncertain if Rolen will rest for finale

Baker uncertain if Rolen will rest for finale

|
LOS ANGELES -- Reds third baseman Scott Rolen is often rested for day games that follow night games, but manager Dusty Baker wasn't sure yet on Saturday if he would give Rolen the break or not.

"I saw him take a couple of swings [Friday]," Baker said. "He didn't look quite like Scott. I go on how they move and swing and what I see. He's not quite there yet."

Baker prefers to have Rolen to play all three games against the contending Giants, but could also give him the Wednesday afternoon game off before Thursday's scheduled off-day.
