Here's Jimmy Rollins in Cartoon Form on 'The Cleveland Show'

It's been well over a year since we first heard about Jimmy Rollins making a guest appearance on FOX's Family Guy-like comedy "The Cleveland Show." Apparently they outsource cartoon drawings overseas and the turnaround is about as fast as Ryan Howard on the base paths.

Now, thanks to the Daily News, we've been alerted that the episode will finally air this weekend.

J-Roll joins fellow cartoon baseball players David Ortiz of the Red Sox and Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds in the above photo sent to us from the show's staff.

Apparently the episode revolves around Cleveland moving his family out to L.A. so he can fulfill his dream of becoming a baseball scout. That according to the DN's Molly Eichel.

"The Cleveland Show" Producer Kara Vallow has Philly roots and told me she had a fantastic time working with J-Roll when he was out in L.A. back in 2011 to record his part.

"Jimmy was a dream," she said. "We shared a lot of memories of the Vet, although
mine go waaaay back and are less adorable, because he wasn't a 9 year
old subjected to the abuses of the cheap seats."

Ahh, memories of the 700 Level traverse the entire country.

You can tune in Sunday night at 7:30 pm on FOX to see the entire episode.

Union see 4-game winning streak end in shutout loss to Real Salt Lake

Union see 4-game winning streak end in shutout loss to Real Salt Lake

BOX SCORE

SANDY, Utah -- Joao Plata scored his first goal of the season and Real Salt Lake beat the Union, 1-0, on Saturday night to snap Philadelphia's club-record winning streak at four games.

Plata tapped in his goal in the 36th minute after quickly exchanging short passes twice with Jefferson Savarino. Tony Beltran got the play started by saving the ball just before it went over the goal line.

The Union (4-5-5) had a chance to tie it in stoppage time, but goalie Nick Rimando blocked Haris Medunjanin's belt-high free kick and Salt Lake (4-8-2) cleared it after a scramble in front of the net.

Union goalkeeper Andre Blake made seven saves.

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick on Saturday night made his fourth rehab appearance in Triple A during Lehigh Valley's 13-1 rout of the Louisville Bats in Allentown.

Kendrick went 1 for 5 with a run scored and three strikeouts. He also grounded into a double play and left two runners in scoring position.

It was his second rehab game playing third base. He played third during his appearance in the IronPigs' 8-4 loss Thursday to the Indianapolis Indians. He was 0 for 1 in three plate appearances with a run scored and was hit by a pitch twice (see story).

The Phillies' plan for Kendrick was to have him play a minimum four games at Lehigh Valley. He played left field in two games and third base twice. Pete Mackanin said Wednesday that Kendrick would also get a game at first base but he hasn't gotten a game at first yet.

There is a chance Kendrick could be recalled Sunday before the Phillies’ series finale against the Cincinnati Reds depending on how he feels.

Kendrick has been sidelined since April 15 with an oblique strain. In 10 games before the injury, Kendrick went 13 for 39 (.333) with five extra-base hits and four walks while exclusively playing left field.
