|Flaws:||Doesn't always display consistency at the dish and isn't quite as strong as a left-handed batter. Can come off as a bit too brash at times when he leads. Wear and tear have led to a slow decline.|

NewsJimmy Rollins said Tuesday that he isn't concerned about trade rumors because the Phillies can't trade him.
ImpactRollins' rift with the management in Philly grows by the day. Even if Rollins didn't own 10-and-5 rights, GM Ruben Amaro Jr. probably wouldn't find a suitor. Because he does, as the veteran shortstop points out, everyone should shut up. "I don't care which way it is tried to be twisted or said, or if it is exactly how it was said, or even if it was said, I can't be traded," he said. "It doesn't matter. If I was tradable it may have weight because that means I could be moving soon. But I am not tradable and so it doesn't matter." Rollins, 35, is owed $11 million this season while his contract includes an $11 million vesting option for 2015 if he reaches 434 plate appearances. Freddy Galvis may be in line for more at-bats this season if the Phillies decide to take drastic measures to ensure Rollins' deal expires after this coming season.

NewsJimmy Rollins is on the Phillies' travel list for Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.

ImpactRollins has been benched for three straight games and when asked Wednesday to explain the absences Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg offered a "no comment." The thought is that Sandberg is trying to send an early message to the veteran shortstop, who has been criticized in the past for a perceived lack of hustle. Lovely way to kick off the 2014 season.
Rollins in danger of losing starting SS job? | 03/12/2014 6:32 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins is not in Thursday's lineup for the fourth consecutive day.
ImpactIt will be the third straight day a healthy Rollins will be absent from the lineup. That in itself wouldn't be terribly concerning -- Rollins dealt with flu-like symptoms early in the week -- but Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Rollins is "fine." Most damningly, Sandberg praised Freddy Galvis, who has started in place of Rollins at shortstop in recent days, after Wednesday's game and, when asked about Rollins, he replied, "No comment." The 35-year-old has been an unquestioned starter for most of his major league career, but those days may soon be coming to an end.

NewsJimmy Rollins was not in Wednesday's Grapefruit League lineup for the third consecutive day.
Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
ImpactHe was absent from camp Monday with flu-like symptoms, but told the media he was fine on Wednesday. The Phillies may just be trying to limit the workload of their veteran shortstop.

ImpactRollins was absent from camp Monday with flu-like symptoms, so he's apparently still on the mend. Freddy Galvis will fill in at shortstop.
Jimmy Rollins homers against Tigers | 02/28/2014 4:23 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins had a three-run homer and two walks as the Phillies topped a Tigers split-squad 10-6 on Friday.
ImpactRollins' homer came off Jose Valdez. All indications are that the Phillies are going to use Rollins out of the two hole, even though he's finished with OBPs of .316 and .318 the last two years. He's topped .320 once in five years (.338 in 2011). Of course, it'll work out fine if Rollins continues to homer and walk twice each game.
Phillies 'very willing' to move Jimmy Rollins | 12/16/2013 11:27 AM
NewsBuster Olney of ESPN writes that the Phillies are "very willing" to trade Jimmy Rollins.
Buster Olney on Twitter
ImpactRollins is owed $11 million in 2014 and carries an $11 million vesting option for the 2015 season. The 35-year-old batted just .252/.318/.348 across 666 plate appearances in 2013. He'll likely be difficult to move.
Rollins hitless Friday against Dodgers | 08/16/2013 10:44 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins went 0-for-3 with a walk in Friday's loss to the Dodgers.
ImpactAnd so, the Ryne Sandberg Era began with a whimper. Rollins is hitting just .223 with one home through 23 games since the All-Star break and owns a career-low .648 OPS on the year. His 15 stolen bases have salvaged his value somewhat, but the arrow is definitely pointing down from a fantasy perspective.
Jimmy Rollins passes through waivers | 08/08/2013 10:34 PM
NewsCBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jimmy Rollins has cleared waivers.
ImpactHe can now be traded anywhere, though Rollins said before the traded deadline that he wouldn't waive his no-trade rights and there's been no indication his stance has changed. The Cardinals expressed interest in the shortstop last month.
Rollins not willing to waive no-trade clause | 07/28/2013 9:43 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins indicated Sunday he would not be willing to waive his no-trade clause if asked.
ImpactRollins has ten-and-five rights, so the Phillies would need him to approve any deal. He was never considered a candidate to be traded prior to Wednesday's non-waiver deadline and is under contract through 2014.
Jimmy Rollins belts leadoff homer in loss | 07/20/2013 4:48 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins led off Saturday's contest against the Mets with a solo homer, but it wasn't enough to lead the Phillies to victory.
ImpactRollins finished the day 2-for-5. His leadoff blast off Zack Wheeler was the 45th leadoff home run in his terrific career. On the season, the veteran shortstop is hitting .259/.319/.353 with five bombs, 31 RBI and nine stolen bases.
Rollins goes 0-for-4 in a loss to the Nats | 07/10/2013 10:15 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins finished 0-for-4 in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.
ImpactRollins had hit safely in 16 of 18 games entering the contest. Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel said over the weekend that a bruised foot could be affecting Rollins' stolen base numbers; the veteran has swiped nine bags while getting caught six times. He's on pace for 16 steals after failing to reach 30 just twice in his career. Rollins is hitting .263/.320/.354. We don't view him as a buy-low candidate.
Rollins (hip) 0-for-3 in return to action | 06/15/2013 7:29 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins (hip) finished 0-for-3 on Saturday in his return to the Phillies' starting lineup.
ImpactRollins was scratched from Friday's game with a sore hip. He is batting just .262/.325/.379 on the season and probably shouldn't be counted on for much of a turnaround.
Rollins (hip) expected to return Saturday | 06/15/2013 11:05 AM
NewsJimmy Rollins (hip) is expected to return to the Phillies' lineup Saturday.
ImpactRollins was scratched from Friday's game with a sore hip, but was able to make a pinch-hit appearance.

ImpactA previous report indicated that Rollins was dealing with a sore foot, but that was apparently incorrect. Either way, consider him day-to-day for now.

NewsJimmy Rollins is not in Friday's lineup against the Rockies due to a sore foot.
Matt Gelb on Twitter
ImpactRollins dealt with a sore right foot earlier this month, though it's not clear whether the two injuries are related. Consider him day-to-day for now. Freddy Galvis is filling in at shortstop.

NewsJimmy Rollins (foot) went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs in his return to the lineup Sunday.
ImpactRollins was limited to pinch-hitting duty on Saturday, but the injury was never a major concern. He's now batting .368 (7-for-19) over his last seven games.

Jimmy Rollins delivers second homer | 05/11/2013 12:40 AM
NewsJimmy Rollins went 2-for-5 and hit his second homer Friday against the Diamondbacks.
ImpactThe homer was his first since April 7. If Rollins is going to hit for his usual modest average again this year, he really needs to do better in homers and steals (3-for-5 so far) to be a quality fantasy shortstop.
Jimmy Rollins knocks in two runs in win | 04/22/2013 10:33 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins knocked in two of the Phillies' three runs Monday in a victory over the Pirates.
ImpactRollins had two hits, but the first RBI actually came on a bases-loaded HBP. He's 8-for-21 in five games since replacing Ben Revere as the Phillies' leadoff hitter.
Jimmy Rollins reaches three times | 03/01/2013 5:31 PM
NewsJimmy Rollins doubled in two runs and walked twice as the Phillies' leadoff man on Friday.
ImpactPhillies manager Charlie Manuel gave Rollins a start as a No. 2 hitter earlier this week, but Rollins was back leading off today. It may be an idea that he revisits later, especially now that he seems to like Michael Young batting fifth behind Ryan Howard. If Rollins leads off and Young bats fifth, that'd probably result in three straight lefties (Ben Revere, Chase Utley, Howard) in the two-through-four spots.
