Jimmy Rollins will return to the Phillies, agreeing to a three-year deal with a vesting option for a fourth year, CBSSports.com's Scott Miller confirms.

Rollins was the No. 2 shortstop on the market, but saw his options dwindle after the Marlins signed Jose Reyes, the Cardinals re-sign Rafael Furcal and Milwaukee signed Alex Gonzalez.

Rollins has spent his entire career with the Phillies, who drafted him in the second round of the 1996 draft.

Rollins, Phillies agree to 3-year deal

I guess 3 years isn't bad... because I feel he only has about 2 years of production left... He has drop in production since his MVP season,  and there are no signs he'll be a front line producer again...
