Jimmy Rollins smacks grand slam in Monday opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins only recorded one hit in six at-bats Monday, but it was a big one, as Rollins connected on a second-inning grand slam in his team's 14-10 Opening Day win over the Rangers.

Rollins only hit six home runs in all of 2013 but got on the board early this year. His .348 slugging percentage from last season represented the lowest mark of his career. He didn't inspire much hope of a turnaround this spring, hitting just .173/.271/.346 in 52 at-bats, but perhaps Monday's grand slam will lead to an offensive rebound.

Phillies GM has 'no intention' to trade Jimmy Rollins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. expressed a bit of outrage Wednesday in response to the ESPN report there is some within the organization that feel the team would be better off by trading shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

"Absolute silliness," he said, per MLB.com. "Jimmy Rollins is our shortstop. One of the ways we’re going to be able to win is with Jimmy being Jimmy. … We have no intention of moving Jimmy. We need Jimmy to play for us to win. It’s as simple as that."

Rollins spoke as well Wednesday and said he is unfazed by the report because he "can't be traded."

"It doesn’t matter. 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. It doesn’t matter," he said. "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."


Report: Phillies might be ready to trade Jimmy Rollins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) There is some sentiment within the Phillies organization that the team would be better off trading veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins and establishing a new tone with a new shortstop, sources told ESPN. 

However, there is a major hurdle to getting a deal done. Rollins has the right to veto any trade and he intends to stay in Philadelphia. He told CSNphilly.com Sunday he has no intentions to waive his no-trade rights anytime soon.


Ryne Sandberg smooths over Jimmy Rollins controversy


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Ryne Sandberg indicated Thursday that the problem he had with Phillies veteran Jimmy Rollins is now behind him and that it started when the shortstop replied "Who cares?" when asked by the media about his offensive struggles.

"Jimmy cares," Sandberg told the Philadelphia Daily News.

Sandberg added that he regretted saying "no comment" when asked about Rollins' energy and positive influence on the team. He said that his benching of Rollins the last four games was based only on a desire to get Freddie Galvis more playing time. Rollins is slated to return to the lineup on Friday.

Jimmy Rollins doesn't understand why manager is mad


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Phillies long-time starting shortstop Jimmy Rollins sounded perplexed Thursday when asked why he is apparently in Ryne Sandberg's dog house.

"Obviously he is upset about something," he told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "...Everyone is allowed to have their own opinion. It doesn't make it right, but he's the manager so he gets to have the last say."

Rollins has been benched the last three games in favor of Freddy Galvis, whose "energy and his positive influence" Sandberg praised. When asked about those qualities in Rollins, the manager retorted, "no comment."

The shortstop characterized his relationship with Sandberg as "good" and added that they talk every day.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Manager on Jimmy Rollins positive influence: 'No comment'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"No comment," Sandberg replied, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. Sandberg added that Rollins was fine physically.

Jimmy Rollins: I won't waive no-trade clause


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Trade rumors that have swirled around veteran Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins no longer faze him. He is planning to stay with the team with which he has remained since his rookie year in 2000.

"I'm not planning on waiving my no-trade clause" he told CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday. "My plan is to bring a championship here. ... So until something else happens and the situation presents itself where it may help the team - then I'll think about it. But until then there's nothing to think about."

Rollins had the least-productive seasons of his career in 2013. The 35-year-old batted .252 with six home runs and 39 RBI and 65 runs in 600 at-bats.


Phillies fine to part with Jimmy Rollins


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/16/2013) According to ESPN.com, the Phillies are letting other teams know they are willing to trade shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

The 14-year veteran is coming off one of the least productive seasons of his career, as he hit .252 with six home runs, 39 RBI and 22 stolen bases. Despite playing in 160 games, Rollins failed to drive in as many as 40 runs for the first time since becoming the Phillies' everyday shortstop in 2001.

The Phillies are on the hook for the $11 million they owe Rolllins in 2014, and he has a $11 million option for 2015 that will vest if he gets 434 plate appearances in '14.


Jimmy Rollins out Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Mets.

Rollins will be replaced by John McDonald, who will hit eighth. Rollins is hitting .247/.310/.339 in 502 at-bats. 


Can Jimmy Rollins be fixed?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/20/2013) Phillies interim manager Ryne Sandberg made headlines just four days into his new job when he told the Philadelphia Daily News that leadoff hitter Jimmy Rollins needed to focus on hitting ground balls and line drives. Oddly enough, Rollins has already been eschewing flyballs for grounders and liners this season, and as his Fantasy owners know all too well, the results haven't been favorable.

After four straight years of line drive rates of 20 percent and lower, Rollins has turned 26 percent of his hit balls this season into line drives, and his 41 percent ground ball rate fits right in with his typical levels. Sandberg certainly has a point in that Rollins has little to gain by trying for the long ball, as he has mustered homers on a paltry 2 percent of his flyballs. However, Rollins has failed to hit as high as .215 on grounders in four of his five last seasons. Given that the major league norm is around .240, having Rollins focus on hitting grounders is not exactly playing to his strength.

Whether Rollins' flyball rate rebounds or it shrinks further, the prospects for a rebound look grim based on his year-to-date stats. It may finally be time to move on from the 14-year veteran.


Ryne Sandberg trying to help Jimmy Rollins end slump


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) Phillies interim manager Ryne Sandberg said Monday he could move the struggling Jimmy Rollins out of the leadoff spot, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

"There’s a possibility of change there, just depending on day to day lineup, matchups, how thing are going," Sandberg said. "For me, he could bat first, second or third. When I look at Jimmy, he still has the ability to steal a base. I can see him being a little more aggressive in that area, using his speed. With that being said, if you’re batting in the first or second spot, your job is to get on base and to do that, it’s more about quality at-bats."

Sandberg said he's had conversations with Rollins about changing his approach at the plate.

"We’ve had conversations about the big hole that’s up the middle, how teams pitch him," Sandberg said. "A lot of teams, if they pitch him away, there is a big hole up the middle. So something like that, for him, will be a big deal."


Jimmy Rollins a 'big piece of the puzzle' for Phillies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) Phillies interim manager Ryne Sandberg chose to rest struggling shortstop Jimmy Rollins Sunday against the Dodgers. Rollins, who made a pinch-hit appearance, is mired in a 1-for-15 slump and is batting .197 (23 for 117) in his last 31 games.

"I have good talks with Jimmy," Sandberg said, per the Philadelphia Daily News. "He's a big piece of the puzzle. That will be my job from here on out, no doubt about it. That goes for everybody. Him in particular, he is a big piece. He's a good player. That's a challenge of mine. We'll stay after that."
