Latest Update Rollins would reportedly approve a trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers Wed Dec, 10, 03:02 PM
Is defensively consistent and has good 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.
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. Wear and tear have led to a slow decline.
The Phillies have been looking to move the former NL MVP for some time now, and it appears that they have finally found a team that might be the perfect fit for him in the Dodgers. With the loss of Hanley Ramirez to free agency, the Dodgers should be in the market for a shortstop, and Rollins is reportedly interested in green lighting any deal that both parties consent to.Analyst: Dom Murtha
Playing for the Mets isn't as attractive to a player as playing in the classic pinstripes. Rollins continues to produce but his age is a big question mark for owners. He is no longer a top fantasy shortstop, but he is still serviceable if he can stay healthy.Analyst: Colby Conway
The Yanks are desperately looking for a Derek Jeter replacement at SS but so far the juice hasn't been worth the squeeze. The Phillies reportedly are looking for an arm and a leg in return for Jimmy Rollins, the Aged SS, and the Yankees simply aren't buying. Rollins is no longer worth a kings ransom but the Phillies can smell the desperation on the Bombers so they are holding out for the perfect deal. Don't expect anything to come from this as the Yankees appear smarter than they once were.Analyst: Dom Murtha
It was difficult to imagine the Phillies pushing Rollins at this stage of the game. J-Roll is looking to come back again next season so he probably doesn't mind wrapping up things this way this season. Obviously it's disappointing for fantasy owners, but given the season Rollins has had, owners probably aren't too surprised.Analyst: Howard Bender
