Apr 30 - 3:43 PM

Jimmy Rollins is absent from the White Sox' lineup on Sunday.

Apr 17 - 10:38 AM

Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox starting lineup Thursday against the Athletics.

Tyler Saladino will start at shortstop and bat ninth versus Oakland righty Kendall Graveman. It's just a day of maintenance for the veteran Rollins, who is 2-for-12 with a homer and three RBI in three games.
Apr 7 - 1:09 PM

Jimmy Rollins will bat second on Opening Day against the Athletics on Monday.

Rollins was expected to make Chicago's Opening Day roster all along, but he won the starting shortstop job and the No. 2 spot in the lineup with a strong spring. The 37-year-old batted just .224 with a .643 OPS as a member of the Dodgers last season, but he's worth watching in deeper mixed leagues in this situation. The full Chicago lineup: Adam Eaton RF, Rollins SS, Jose Abreu 1B, Todd Frazier 3B, Melky Cabrera LF, Avisail Garcia DH, Brett Lawrie 2B, Dioner Navarro C, Austin Jackson CF. Chris Sale will start against Rich Hill.
Apr 4 - 7:24 PM

White Sox purchased the contract of SS Jimmy Rollins from Triple-A Charlotte.

It was pretty much a given that Rollins would make the Opening Day roster and win the starting shortstop job, but now it's official. The 37-year-old has certainly earned the opportunity, batting .354 (17-for-48) with four home runs and 13 RBI this spring. We can't ignore how much he struggled with the Dodgers last season, but he's worth considering in deeper mixed leagues in this hitter-friendly ballpark.
Mar 30 - 1:55 PM

Jimmy Rollins finished 3-for-4 with three runs scored and three RBI as the White Sox rallied to beat the Giants 8-7 on Tuesday afternoon in Arizona.

Rollins singled and scored in the first inning, did the same in the fifth, and then cranked a three-run homer off right-hander Cory Gearrin in the sixth to tie the game at 7-7. Travis Ishikawa followed with a go-ahead solo shot. Rollins is projected to open the 2016 season as Chicago's starting shortstop and he could have some sneaky value in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 22 - 7:32 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, a walk, and two runs scored in Friday’s 8-3 win over the Padres in Cactus League action.

The power barrage continues for the White Sox. They hit four home runs on the day, including three in the third inning off James Shields. The 37-year-old Rollins had to settle for a minor league deal after a disappointing 2015, but he’s batting .429 (6-for-14) with two homers so far this spring. He’s a pretty strong lock to make the Opening Day roster and appears increasingly likely to take the starting shortstop job away from Tyler Saladino.
Mar 11 - 6:57 PM

Jimmy Rollins finished 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored as the White Sox topped the Brewers 10-6 in Tuesday's Cactus League game.

Rollins batted second and got the start at shortstop for the White Sox. He singled and scored in the first inning, slugged a two-run shot off Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson in the second inning, and added an RBI single in the third. The veteran Rollins could very well emerge as Chicago's starting shortstop out of camp and might have some sneaky fantasy value left in that 37-year-old body. Tyler Saladino is his primary competition.
Mar 8 - 6:43 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura expects Jimmy Rollins to make the Opening Day roster.

Rollins had to settle for a minor league deal, but he stands a decent chance to win the starting shortstop job over Tyler Saladino. MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the 37-year-old will receive a $2 million salary if he makes Chicago's roster.
Mar 2 - 2:12 PM

White Sox signed SS Jimmy Rollins to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

He'll earn $2 million if he makes the big league roster out of spring training. Rollins will report to White Sox camp on Thursday. He's looking to rebound after a trying year with the Dodgers in 2015 (.234, 13 HR, 41 RBI). Assuming he makes the roster, Rollins will compete with Tyler Saladino for playing time at shortstop. This likely takes the White Sox out of the running for Ian Desmond.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that multiple teams have inquired about Jimmy Rollins playing second base.

This is following a report last month that said Rollins was drawing interest in a potential utility role. Rosenthal says the veteran infielder is "open to the idea" of playing second base will wait it out a bit longer to see if any shortstop opportunities pop up. Rollins hit just .224/.285/.358 for the Dodgers last season and turned 37 in November.
