With his second plate appearance on Friday night, Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins officially triggered his $11 million vesting option for next season. The option vested with his 1,100th plate appearance from 2013-14.

Rollins, 35, went in Friday's game hitting .243/.326/.398 (102 OPS+) with 13 home runs and 19 doubles this season. He's bounced back nicely after putting up a soft .252/.318/.348 (86 OPS+) batting line last season.

The Phillies are reportedly willing to trade just about anyone on their roster, and Rollins has already indicated he would be open to waiving his no-trade clause to join a contender. He could be moved in the offseason if not at the deadline.
