Rollins hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning off of Ryan Mattheus to boost the Dodgers' lead to 5-1. The veteran shortstop has been at the top of the lineup for the entire month despite carrying a lackluster .225/.278/.372 triple-slash line with 13 home runs and 41 RBI. Aug 25 - 11:04 PM

Jimmy Rollins is not in the Dodgers' lineup against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Rollins is simply getting a day off against Jordan Zimmermann. Kike Hernandez will start at shortstop in his absence.
Aug 12 - 6:44 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

Rollins chipped in with an RBI single in the fifth inning against Pirates starter Gerrit Cole. He would also double home a run in the seventh to knot the proceedings at 4-4, but this would be the last run the Dodgers scored in the loss. For the season, Rollins is hitting just .223/.280/.366, though it should be noted that he's notched multi-hit efforts in four of his last eight games.
Aug 7 - 11:46 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-5 with a double in his first game back in Philadelphia, a Dodger loss to the Phillies.

Rollins went 5-for-15 with two doubles, a home run, and five RBI when the Phillies visited for four games at Chavez Ravine last month. In his first game back in Philadelphia since he was traded to the Dodgers during the winter, Rollins struck out in his first at-bat leading off the game, then doubled in the third inning and singled in the fifth. The veteran hasn't been the offensive force he was last year, batting a meager .219/.273/.362 with 11 home runs, 33 RBI, and eight stolen bases in 15 attempts.
Aug 4 - 11:09 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, and two runs scored against the Mets on Friday.

Rollins has now gone deep in back-to-back games. The veteran shortstop might be in a different uniform, but he continues to be a pain in the neck for the Mets.
Jul 24 - 10:02 PM

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.
Jul 12 - 1:08 PM

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
