Latest Update Jimmy Rollins' 2015 option for $11 million will kick in after two plate appearances Friday night. Fri Jul, 25, 11:16 AM
Is defensively consistent and has great range at shortstop with a plus arm. A switch-hitter with surprising pop in his bat, he plays the game with great instincts and hustle. Runs very well. Is a good leader in the clubhouse.
Flaws: : Doesn't always display consistency at the dish and isn't quite as strong as a left-handed batter. Can come off as a bit too brash at times when he leads. Injuries are a bit of a concern moving forward.
That will probably make it that much more difficult to trade him if the Phillies were still looking to walk down that path. His power stroke returned somewhat, making him a more attractive option, but he's still batting just .243 on the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite only recording four hits since returning from the All-Star break, Rollins has been a solid contributor, having now totaled two home runs and six RBI over his last five games. He is now sitting on a .243 average with 13 home runs, 45 RBI and 19 stolen bases through 371 at-bats and could be on the move before next week's trade deadline. Even if he lands in a less hitter-friendly ballpark for his home games, his speed and ability to hit for power is going to translate where ever he may land, so fantasy owners need not worry if a trade was to go down in the upcoming days.

Rollins logged his first multi-hit game of the season half on Monday and has now driven in four runs over his last four games. He is currently slashing .243/.325/.391, which is not the best, but as long as he continues to hit for power (12 HR w/ 43 RBI) while getting the job done on the base paths (19 SB) he remains a must-start option at shortstop outside of extremely shallow leagues.

Rollins was responsible for all the Phillies' offense on Saturday as he drove in the only two runs of the team. He is now sporting a .244 average with 12 home runs, 41 RBI and 19 stolen bases as he continues to prove at the age of 35 he can still get the job done. There is speculation that Rollins may be on the move prior to the July 31 trade deadline, but no matter where he ends up, his mix of power and speed makes for a solid fantasy option in all league formats.
