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. Oct 12 - 4:19 PM

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 (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.
Sep 16 - 7:30 PM

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.

Rather, Rollins is expected to be available Friday, but it's unclear whether he'll unseat top prospect Corey Seager, who has done well in a substitute role. Rollins has already missed three straight games with discomfort in his right index finger.
