ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Jimmy Rollins is drawing interest as a shortstop and in a "hybrid utility role."

Rollins lost his starting shortstop job to rookie Corey Seager down the stretch with the Dodgers this past season and it could be difficult for him to find a regular job on the open market. The 37-year-old posted a career-low .643 OPS in 2015.

Jimmy Rollins is starting at shortstop and batting second for the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday.

Seager picked up just one hit in eight plate appearances in the first two games and that was apparently enough to convince manager Don Mattingly to give Rollins a shot. The Dodgers also have Enrique Hernandez in center field for the second straight game after Joc Pederson started Game 1.

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Rollins worked a single off Giants starter Mike Leake, one of just two hits the Dodgers managed on the day. For the season, the veteran shortstop is hitting a dismal .226/.286/.360 with 13 homers, 41 RBI, 71 runs scored and 12 steals over 143 games.

Jimmy Rollins is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

Corey Seager will start in his place and bat second. Rollins had started the previous three games after missing time with a right finger injury. He's hit just .225 this year with 13 homers and 12 steals.

Jimmy Rollins (finger) returned to the Dodgers' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Rollins, who hasn't started since September 6, will play shortstop and bat eighth against the Diamondbacks. He's been 0-for-3 as a pinch-hitter while dealing with discomfort in his right index finger. The veteran is batting a pedestrian .219/.277/.353 on the year.

Jimmy Rollins (finger) popped out as a pinch-hitter on Monday.

Rollins has appeared as a pinch-hitter in each of the last three games. The veteran shortstop doesn't feel pain in his finger when he's hitting, but it's still an issue when he throws. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup.

Jimmy Rollins (finger) struck out as a pinch-hitter Sunday in the Dodgers' loss to the Pirates.

Jimmy Rollins (finger) felt pain when trying to throw Wednesday.

Rollins likely won't return to the field in the next few days after testing out the finger Wednesday. He will be available to pinch-run and is able to swing a bat without pain, though. With expanded rosters, the Dodgers can afford to let Rollins heal at his own pace.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was non-committal on Tuesday when asked about a timetable for Jimmy Rollins (finger).

"We'll see," Mattingly said. Rollins will take batting practice Tuesday as he works his way back from a right index finger injury. He hasn't started a game in over a week. Mattingly has said previously that Rollins will regain his starting job at shortstop even though Corey Seager has played well while filling in.

Jimmy Rollins will test out his ailing right index finger on Monday.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Jimmy Rollins will be the team's starting shortstop when he returns from a jammed finger.

There was speculation Rollins might lose his starting gig to top prospect Corey Seager but Mattingly assured that's not the case. The 36-year-old doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy value with his .220 batting average. Seager, on the other hand, has hit an impressive .385 since his call-up last week.
