Phillies to send Jimmy Rollins to Dodgers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Phillies have completed a trade that will send shortstop Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers, confirms CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. News that the deal was finally going through was initially reported by Yahoo!

The deal has been in place for some time, but was dependent on a separate Dodgers deal going through. The Dodgers will send pitcher Zach Eflin to Philadelphia as part of the Rollins trade, but first needed to acquire Eflin from the Padres in the Matt Kemp deal. The Dodgers and Padres finally reached an agreement late Thursday night, meaning Eflin could finally be sent to Philadelphia. The 20-year-old Eflin posted a 3.80 ERA in 128 innings at High A last year.

Rollins, 36, hit .243/.323/.394 over 538 at-bats last season. He's in the final year of his contract, and is set to make $11 million next year.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Dodgers and Padres have agreed to a deal that will send outfielder Matt Kemp to San Diego, confirms CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. News that the deal had finally come together was first reported by Yahoo!

The trade has been in the works for some time, but was dependent on Kemp passing a physical. It was reported early Thursday that Kemp's physical revealed arthritic hips. The Padres had to to figure out insurance on the contract, which is why it took so long for the deal to go through.

Catcher Tim Federowicz will also head to San Diego in the deal. The Dodgers will send $32 million over as well. 

In return, Los Angeles is set to receive catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitcher Joe Weiland and Zach Eflin. Eflin is expected to be flipped to Philadelphia for shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

The 30-year-old Kemp hit .287/.346/.506 over 541 at-bats last year. Kemp is set to earn a little over $21 million in each of the next five seasons. 


Report: Dodgers trade for Phillies shortstop Rollins remains in place


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Dodgers acquisition of Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has yet to be finalized because of another Dodgers trade with the Padres is being reportedly held up due to an issue with Matt Kemp's physical. One of the players in the Kemp deal the Dodgers are acquiring -- Zach Eflin -- is expected to be part of the trade for Rollins.

However, whether or not Eflin eventually is part of the trade with Philadelphia, the Rollins deal remains in place, sources told CSNPhilly.com. The Phillies and Dodgers have discussed other players as part of the deal in case the Kemp trade to the Padres doesn't go through.

Although, despite the issues with Kemp's physical, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Thursday the trade with the Padres likely won't be derailed.

Rollins would have to approve a trade to Los Angeles, but would do so, according to Heyman. Rollins is entering the final year of his contract. He's set to make $11 million in 2015. The Phillies are expected to receive two young pitchers once the deal is completed.

Jimmy Rollins hasn't thought about waiving no-trade clause


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Shortstop Jimmy Rollins told USA Today he has no interest in leaving the Phillies, despite being mentioned in trade rumors.

"They would have to come up with a reason for me to leave,'' Rollins said. "I'm not saying it would never happen. I will be a free agent at some point.

"Now, if they tell me to go, then I got no choice. I'll go. If you make it that clear that you don't want me, you don't have to tell me twice.''

Though, Rollins does have the final say since he has full no-trade rights in his contract. He also has an $11 million vesting option for 2015, if he combines for 1,110 plate appearances between 2013-14.

"I'm not going to volunteer to go anywhere,'' Rollins says. "Even if somewhere else was the perfect spot, this is what I know. You weigh that against the instant gratification of winning right now. You leave, and there's no guarantee you're going to win anyways. You pack up to leave for a different organization, a different city, and it feels temporary.

"I can tell you that I have never honestly thought about waiving my no-trade clause.''
