Jimmy Rollins' $11 million option for 2015 will vest with two more plate appearances.
The only thing that would potentially keep the option from being guaranteed would be Rollins ending the season on the disabled list, but even then the option will kick in if a doctor deems him ready for Opening Day 2015. Rollins, 35, is having a solid season, batting .243/.326/.398 with 13 homers, 45 RBI and 19 stolen bases. The veteran shortstop has 10-and-5 no-trade rights but indicated last month that he could be willing to waive them should the Phillies have a firesale. Jul 25 - 10:05 AM

Jimmy Rollins blasted a two-run home run, finishing 1-for-5 with two walks overall, in a 14-inning loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

Rollins gave the Phillies a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run home run off of Yusmeiro Petit. It's his 13th home run of the season and his fifth in his last 10 games. He had six all of last season. The shortstop has had an up-and-down year, and maintains a mediocre .243/.327/.396 slash line with 45 RBI and 19 stolen bases.
Jul 23 - 1:06 AM

Jimmy Rollins homered twice and knocked in three runs in a 6-2 win over the Nationals on Friday night.

Rollins connected for a two-run shot off Jordan Zimmermann in the third inning and later added a solo blast against Craig Stammen in the seventh. It was his first multi-hit homer game since August 1, 2012, also against the Nationals. While the 35-year-old has seen his batting average drop off in a big way since the start of the season, he's now up to 11 home runs on the year. He hit just six of them in 160 games last year.
Jul 11 - 10:19 PM

Jimmy Rollins broke a 1-1 tie with a two-run home run in the sixth inning as the Phillies defeated the Brewers on Wednesday.

Rollins' homer off of Kyle Lohse, which turned out to be the game-winning hit, was his first home run in over a month. The shortstop hasn't done a whole lot offensively after a quick start to the season, but still has average numbers relative to his position. He is slashing .240/.325/.375 with nine home runs, 34 RBI, and 17 stolen bases.
Jul 9 - 11:03 PM

Jimmy Rollins singled twice in four plate appearances and stole a base in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins.

It was another quiet offensive night for the Phillies, as Rollins had two of his club's five hits, all singles. Rollins hasn't hit for much power lately, but he's still getting on base and stealing bases. He's slashing .252/.332/.387 with six home runs, 38 RBI, and 15 stolen bases on the season.

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-4 with an RBI double on Friday against the Cardinals.

Rollins is batting .246/.336/.394 on the season, though June has been a bit of a struggle for him. He's hitting .227/.282/.364 on the month.

Jimmy Rollins told reporters Saturday that he may be open to giving up his no-trade rights this summer.

Rollins said in March that he didn't want to go anywhere, but the Phillies are at the bottom of the National League East standings and could go into firesale mode ahead of the July 31 trade deadline. "It really depends if everything is blown up," the veteran shortstop said Saturday. "Then you take that into consideration. If they blow everything up, then of course." Rollins, who passed Mike Schmidt for first place on the Phillies' all-time hit list Saturday, is making $11 million this season.
Jun 14 - 9:41 PM

With his leadoff double in the ninth inning of Friday's loss to the Cubs, Jimmy Rollins tied Mike Schmidt atop the Phillies all-time hit list with 2,234.

He finished the night 1-for-4 and scored the Phillies lone run in the contest. The 35-year-old shortstop is having a productive season at the plate, slashing .249/.346/.405 with eight homers, 26 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
Jun 13 - 10:08 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Rollins has hit safely in six consecutive games now as he inches closer to the Phillies' all-time hit record, currently held by Mike Schmidt at 2,234. The pair of stolen bases gives him 10 on the season in 12 attempts, and he owns a .248/.345/.404 slash line.
Jun 11 - 10:09 PM

Jimmy Rollins hit a solo homer, drew a walk, and scored two runs Friday night against the Reds.

It was his seventh home run of the season and his first since May 20. Rollins got off to a great start this season, but his average has tumbled 28 points (from .276 to .248) over his last 14 games. On the bright side, he continues to show surprising patience. The 35-year-old has already walked 33 times in 56 games. He has never walked more than 62 times in a season during his career.
Jun 6 - 11:01 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts as the Phillies fell to the Nationals 8-4 on Wednesday.

The golden sombrero was the first in his 15-year career spanning 2,006 games. Rollins, like many Phillies, hasn't had much success at the plate lately. Since May 25, he had a .447 OPS in 45 plate appearances dating back to May 25. The shortstop has been drawing plenty of walks, but otherwise hasn't had much to write home about on the season, slashing .246/.347/.386. One wonders if he would be willing waive his 10-and-5 rights to be traded to a contending team once he acquires nine more hits to surpass Mike Schmidt for the most career hits in Phillies history.
Jun 5 - 12:16 AM

Jimmy Rollins is not in the Phillies' lineup Monday.

Jun 2 - 3:46 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

Rollins singled to lead off the game, stole second base, and scored on a Ryan Howard double. He later put the Phillies ahead 4-3 with a two-run home run, his sixth of the season, off of Anthony DeSclafani in the fifth inning. It's been a resurgent year for the shortstop, who is now slashing .268/.366/.450 with six stolen bases, 20 RBI, and 25 runs scored.
May 20 - 11:46 PM

Jimmy Rollins led off Sunday's win over the Reds with a solo home run and finished 1-for-3 with a pair of walks on the afternoon.

Rollins' lead-off blast was his fifth of the season. That, along with the two walks, boosts his slash line up to .262/.359/.428 along with five stolen bases. Many thought he was done, but Rollins has been among the five best-hitting shortstops in the National League thus far.
May 18 - 4:52 PM

Jimmy Rollins is starting at shortstop for the Phillies on Friday.

It's the first time he's done so since Sunday, as he missed a couple games and then was limited to designated hitter duty due to a groin ailment. Rollins is batting .267/.341/.414 with three homers, 16 RBI and five steals for the Phillies this season.
