Jimmy Rollins hit his ninth homer Thursday off the Mets' Bartolo Colon.

Rollins had been just 1-for-19 since the All-Star break, though the good news is that his average was so low anyway that a 1-for-19 hardly makes a dent. He's batting .205/.260/.333 for the year.
Jul 23 - 9:46 PM

Jimmy Rollins is out of the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Rollins has really scuffled over the past week, so he'll take a seat against left-hander Alex Wood. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at shortstop.
Jul 21 - 3:04 PM

Jimmy Rollins is batting leadoff for the Dodgers on Sunday.

It's the first time since April that he's hit at the top of the order. Rollins hasn't really earned the move back to leadoff, as he's hitting just .258/.303/.419 this month, but Joc Pederson is really struggling so manager Don Mattingly has decided to shake things up. Pederson is batting fifth Sunday.

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double in Thursday's 6-0 victory over the Phillies.

Rollins entered this four-game series against his former employer batting an anemic .208, but he enjoyed the reunion in going 5-for-15 (.333) with five RBI and four runs. Still, it's hard to get excited about the .214/.268/.339 slash line.
Jul 10 - 12:28 AM

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-4 and hit a double and a three-run home run in Wednesday's 5-0 win against the Phillies.

He scored twice. Rollins went 4-for-12 (.333) in the three-game set against his former team, but he's still only slashing .213/.265/.336 with the Dodgers. He's on pace for a decent 15 homers (a homer higher than his career average), but his numbers elsewhere are futile.
Jul 9 - 1:24 AM

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 is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

The struggling infielder is getting a breather. Kike Hernandez is at shortstop in Rollins' place.
Jul 5 - 1:10 PM

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. Rollins had a pretty good weekend series against the Giants, but he is batting just .211/.269/.344 overall this season. The drum still bangs for Corey Seager.
Jun 22 - 8:50 AM

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.
Jun 14 - 1:02 AM

Jimmy Rollins is not in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

It's just a night off for the veteran shortstop. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at short versus Arizona.
Jun 9 - 6:00 PM

Jimmy Rollins had one hit, a three-run home run, in four at-bats in Monday's win against the Diamondbacks.

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.
Jun 9 - 12:53 AM

Jimmy Rollins is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

Enrique Hernandez will get the start at shortstop. Rollins figures to play in the second game.
Jun 2 - 12:05 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-4 with a double Friday against the Cardinals.

Rollins has now hit safely in six straight games. Despite the recent hot streak, the 36-year-old has a disappointing .210/.278/.352 batting line through 46 games this season.
May 29 - 11:41 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-5 with a solo home run as the Dodgers rallied late to beat the Braves on Monday.

Rollins hit the last of three home runs against reliever Nick Masset in the eighth inning. His was a solo shot to make it a 6-2 ballgame. Rollins has been a disappointment in his first season with the Dodgers, batting .201/.275/.348 with five home runs, 14 RBI, and five stolen bases in eight attempts.
