Jimmy Rollins knocked in the game-winning hit against his former team, going 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a pair of runs scored in Monday's win over the Phillies.
With the game knotted at 7-7 in the seventh inning, Rollins drove a two-run single to left-center. He later scored on Joc Pederson's double. The veteran shortstop has not been productive in his first year with the Dodgers, batting .212/.266/.324 with seven home runs and 26 RBI. Even his speed has waned, as he's been successful in only six of 13 stolen base attempts. Jul 7 - 2:36 AM

Jimmy Rollins will not be in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

Los Angeles is playing a stretch of 20 games in 20 days and manager Don Mattingly told reporters late Sunday night that he wants to get his veteran shortstop some rest.

Jimmy Rollins went 0-for-3 on Saturday, dropping his average back under .200.

Rollins was playing quite a bit better in the second half of May, but he stopped hitting again after the Dodgers stuck him at the bottom of the lineup. At .197, he's back under the Mendoza Line for the first time since May 23. While management recently gave him a vote of confidence, his continued struggles would increase the calls for Corey Seager.

Rollins struck the big blow in the fourth inning with a three-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa, capping off a five-run frame. It's the seventh homer of the year for the 36-year-old, but he's done little else at the plate. Rollins owns a lackluster .208/.272/.354 triple-slash line with 18 RBI and six stolen bases.

May 21 - 1:07 PM

Jimmy Rollins led the Dodgers past the Rockies by going 4-for-5 with a homer and a double on Friday.

Even after a four-hit game, Rollins is still batting just .198. Still, the fantasy upside hasn't gone anywhere, and he remains a fine option as a mixed-league shortstop while hitting high in one of the game's best lineups.
