Jimmy Rollins was instrumental in the Dodgers' Opening Day win against the Padres on Monday, going 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a three-run home run.

Rollins clubbed a tie-breaking three-run home run in the eighth inning off of Shawn Kelley, a no-doubter down the right field line. He had a strong spring for the Dodgers and appears to be carrying it right into the regular season. Rollins may be 36 years old, but he's still capable of putting up a 20/20 season.
Apr 6 - 7:52 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored as the Dodgers topped the Diamondbacks 4-2 on Monday.

Rollins maintains his .333 Cactus League average (18-for-54) with the effort. He now has seven doubles, two triples, and a home run this spring, showcasing his offensive potential for his new team. The 36-year-old can still provide plenty of value with his speed and power.
Mar 30 - 7:10 PM

Jimmy Rollins had a big game against the White Sox on Thursday, batting 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, and 4 RBI.

Rollins knocked in his first run with a second-inning ground out, doubled in a run in the fourth, then hit a two-run home run off of Daniel Webb in the sixth. The veteran shortstop has shown good power this spring, now with five doubles, a pair of doubles, and one home run.
Mar 26 - 7:54 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple and a run scored in Monday's Cactus League game versus the Diamondbacks.

Rollins tied the game at 1-1 with his third-inning triple, then shortly thereafter scored the go-ahead run. The veteran shortstop has been as-advertised this spring, batting .316 (12-for-38) with four doubles and two triples.
Mar 23 - 7:10 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Saturday's 7-2 win against the Indians.

Rollins doubled in Chris Heisey in the fourth inning. The veteran shortstop is now batting .368 with three extra-base hits in 19 at-bats so far. Rollins is now 36 years old but is coming off of a productive season with the Phillies, clubbing 17 home runs and stealing 28 bases.
Mar 14 - 6:53 PM

Jimmy Rollins singled, doubled, and scored in a run in three at-bats in Monday's Cactus League tie with the Giants.

Rollins is batting .400 in his first 10 spring at-bats. The shortstop, acquired from the Phillies during the off-season, will bat leadoff for the Dodgers in 2015. He batted .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs, 55 RBI, and 28 stolen bases last year and should continue to rank among the most valuable fantasy shortstops.
Mar 9 - 7:06 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Jimmy Rollins will serve as the team's leadoff man.

Mattingly indicated last week that he wasn't completely committed to Rollins in the leadoff spot, but he said Tuesday that they "don't truly have anyone else who fits in that role." He's not wrong, but Rollins isn't the ideal leadoff hitter either, as he owns a .319 on-base percentage over the last three seasons. Still, it certainly enhances his fantasy value for 2015 if he sticks there.
Mar 3 - 12:11 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated Wednesday that he's not completely committed to Jimmy Rollins in the leadoff spot.

Dee Gordon was the Dodgers' regular leadoff hitter last season, but he was traded to the Marlins over the winter. Rollins owns a .319 on-base percentage over the past three seasons, so he's never been the ideal leadoff hitter, but we still think he's the most likely candidate. Still, Mattingly will keep an open mind about the situation.
Feb 25 - 12:21 PM

Dodgers acquired SS Jimmy Rollins and cash considerations from the Phillies in exchange for RHP Zach Eflin and LHP Tom Windle.

They had to wait for the Matt Kemp trade to become official (which it did Thursday night), as Eflin was part of the package the Dodgers got from the Padres. Rollins makes for a nice one-year option for the contending Dodgers, as he's coming off a nice 2014 season that saw him bat .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI while also played pretty good defense at shortstop. The Phillies are sending $1 million to the Dodgers in the deal.

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers is a "done deal."

The Phillies are expected to get two young pitchers in return for their all-time franchise hits leader. Rollins is due $11 million in 2015, the final year of his contract. The 36-year-old batted .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI in 138 games this past season and also played pretty good defense at shortstop.

ESPN's Jayson Stark is getting increasing indications there's "a real chance" of a Jimmy Rollins deal between the Phillies and Dodgers.

However, he hears that a Cole Hamels deal between the clubs is unlikely. Rollins has a full no-trade clause, but he's reportedly willing to waive it to go to the Dodgers. The 36-year-old batted .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI over 138 games this past season and is owed $11 million in 2015.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that that Jimmy Rollins would approve a trade to the Dodgers.

The Dodgers need a shortstop, but their level of interest in Rollins isn't known. With full 10-and-5 rights, the 36-year-old reportedly isn't willing to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Mets or A's. The Phillies hope to land a legitimate prospect if they end up dealing him.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Phillies have informed the Mets that Jimmy Rollins is not willing to waive his no-trade to go there.

The Phillies have had discussions with the Yankees this winter about a potential deal, but have informed the Mets and other interested teams if the veteran shortstop was willing to waive the clause before even attempting to negotiate a deal. The Mets remain on the hunt for a starting shortstop, but will have to explore other avenues.

ESPN's Jayson Stark heard from two sources that the Yankees offered the Phillies "a utility player" for shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

That didn't get the job done. The Phillies seem to have a lofty asking price for Rollins, who turns 36 years old this week and is owed $11 million next season in the final year of his four-year, $44 million deal. They're simply not going to be able to get a top prospect or young, productive major league talent in exchange for the veteran shortstop.
