Jimmy Rollins: Accepts job with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins was hired by the Phillies as a special adviser, effectively ending his playing career, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Rollins hasn't played in the majors since 2016, and he's set to officially retire after spending the past two years out of baseball. The 40-year-old played a combined 17 seasons with the Phillies, Dodgers and White Sox, slashing .264/.324/.418 with 231 homers and 470 stolen bases. Rollins also earned NL MVP honors in 2007.

Jimmy Rollins: Released by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins has been officially released by the Giants, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

This is no surprise after Rollins was left off the club's Opening Day roster a few days ago. At 38 years old, it's hard to imagine Rollins wants anything to do with the minor leagues, so he'll test the market and see if there's anybody else looking for a veteran backup infielder. Rollins has managed an OPS over .700 just once in the past four years, so interest will likely be sparse.

Giants' Jimmy Rollins: Left off Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy informed Rollins on Tuesday that he did not make the Opening Day roster, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

This news does not come as much of a surprise, as the 38-year-old hit just .125 (5-for-40) in 16 games this spring. Rollins has the option to remain in the organization as a minor-league player or elect for free agency, but no decision has made at this time.

Giants' Jimmy Rollins: Gets start at second Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins started at second base in Thursday's split-squad game against the White Sox, and added position flexibility should help his case for making the 25-man roster, CSN Bay Area reports.

Rollins hadn't manned the keystone in 15 years, so the veteran shortstop is working on getting comfortable at the position in order to increase his value as a utility infielder. Manager Bruce Bochy said that the 38-year-old looked "pretty good" defensively playing second base. Rollins will compete with Kelby Tomlinson, Gordon Beckham, Jae-Gyun Hwang and Orlando Calixte for the utility infield spot on the 25-man roster.

Giants' Jimmy Rollins: Focusing on third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is playing multiple infield positions during spring training, focusing mainly on third base, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

With Brandon Crawford at shortstop and Joe Panik at second base, the news is to be expected. Rollins is bidding for a roster spot in his 18th major league season, but it seems the best he can hope for would be a backup role in a crowded infield. The four-time Gold Glove winner has never played a position other than shortstop, so it will certainly be an offseason of adjustment. Don't expect a miraculous comeback from the 38-year-old vet.

Giants' Jimmy Rollins: Finalizing minor league deal with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is finalizing a minor league deal with the Giants on Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

The veteran signed with the White Sox prior to last season but appeared in only 41 games before being DFA'd and subsequently released in mid-June. The 38-year-old hit .221/.295/.329 with eight RBI and five steals, mirroring his numbers from the 2015 campaign, which he spent with the Dodgers. At this point, it's difficult to gauge Rollins' chances of making the major league roster, but if the Giants opt to keep him around, it would likely be in a reduced, utility role.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Expected to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is expected to be released by the White Sox.

Rollins was designated for assignment last Friday, and on Wednesday the club requested he be put on waivers with the intention of granting his unconditional release. The veteran shortstop was hitting just .221/.295/.329 in 41 games with Chicago, but he could draw the attention of a team looking to add middle infield depth.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Designated for assignment Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Friday.

Rollins managed just a .624 OPS over 41 games this season, so the team decided to remove him from the roster and call up top prospect Tim Anderson to take over as the team's regular shortstop. Rollins could garner a look from another team either via the waiver wire or free agency, but he is likely looking at a reserve role wherever he ends up.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Not in lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

Rollins went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in Wednesday's loss after sitting out Tuesday's contest. He has continued to struggle this season, batting just .221 with an average that has been on the decline since May began. In his place, the White Sox will start Tyler Saladino at shortstop.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Rollins continues to struggle at the plate, as his slash line sits at just .224/.290/.333, and he'll head to the bench for the third time in the last six games. Tyler Saladino will handle the shortstop duties Tuesday, and it's possible Rollins continues to see more frequent days off down the road.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Losing edge at shortstop?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Robin Ventura said Rollins was supposed to start Wednesday, but he went with Tyler Saladino instead, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Rollins has served as the team's starting shortstop in 33 of the White Sox's 54 games, but he has begun to see his hold slip of late. Saladnio started four of the team's last five games and Rollins just concluded a month in which he posted a sub-.600 OPS. Of course, the battle between Rollins and Saladino may be moot if Tim Anderson gets the call.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Out of the lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.

He will sit out in favor of Tyler Saladino, who will bat seventh and make a second consecutive start at shortstop. Rollins sat out Tuesday as manager Robin Ventura packed the lineup with right-handed batters to counter a lefty, and Saladino's performance (2-for-2 with one home run, two RBI, and two walks drawn) earned him another opportunity.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Out of the lineup against lefty Steven Matz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is out of the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Mets, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Rollins will sit out while Tyler Saladino will get the start at shortstop and bat seventh. This move is likely to pack the lineup with right-handers against lefty starter Steven Matz. Rollins, a veteran, is slashing an uninspired .226/.282/.336 in 2016.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Resting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Rollins will give way to Tyler Saladino for the second straight game, as manager Robin Ventura looks to extract some more offense from the shortstop spot. While Rollins and Saladino are both rocking sub-.300 on-base percentages for the season, Saladino at least turned in a productive game Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI. Ventura will likely end up settling on a primary option at the position based on which player happens to be hotter at the plate.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Not in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is not in the lineup Saturday against the Royals.

Rollins will get the day off as the Sox go with Tyler Saladino at shortstop Saturday. Saladino will serve as the No. 9 hitter against the Royals' Yordano Ventura.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Out of lineup Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is not in the lineup for Game 2 against the Indians on Monday.

Rollins will give way to Avisail Garcia on Monday night as Chicago's designated hitter so that Rollins limits his workload at age 37.

May 20, 2016 03:50 PM
White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Royals.

Despite having excellent career numbers against Kansas City starter Dillon Gee (4-14, 2 HR), Rollins will sit out for Friday's series opener. Tyler Saladino will take Rollins' place at shortstop and bat ninth in the order against Gee.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Rollins has begun to heat up a little bit with six hits in his last five games, but he's still conceding about two starts a week to Tyler Saladino. That's likely just a measure to keep the 37-year-old fresh over the course of the season, as he still remains the top shortstop on the White Sox's depth chart.

White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Homers in White Sox' win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins was 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in the White Sox' win over the Yankees on Friday night.

he has been a solid addition to the White Sox roster this season, helping shore up their infield defense while chipping in some timely hits. He now has two homers and seven RBI while adding three stolen bases on the season. Unfortunately, at age 37 he requires more frequent days off which somewhat limits his fantasy value to deep or AL-only leagues.

May 11, 2016 11:24 AM
White Sox's Jimmy Rollins: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rollins is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

Rollins will get the day off for Wednesday's early afternoon contest as Tyler Saladino is set to take over at short and bat ninth in the order. He'll get an added rest day with Thursday's travel day, so look for Rollins to rejoin the lineup Friday against the Yankees.
