ESPN's Jayson Stark heard from two sources that the Yankees offered the Phillies "a utility player" for shortstop Jimmy Rollins.
That didn't get the job done. The Phillies seem to have a lofty asking price for Rollins, who turns 36 years old this week and is owed $11 million next season in the final year of his four-year, $44 million deal. They're simply not going to be able to get a top prospect or young, productive major league talent in exchange for the veteran shortstop. Nov 26 - 4:03 PM

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) said Wednesday that it "would not be wise" for him to play again in 2014.

Rollins suffered a strained left hamstring on September 8 and hasn't appeared in a game since. He's been able to resume most baseball activities, but there is no reason for the Phillies to rush him back with only four games remaining on their regular-season schedule. The veteran shortstop will finish up with a .243/.323/.394 slash line, 17 home runs, and 28 stolen bases. Rollins is under contract for $11 million in 2015.

I'm not going one way or another on it. Just watching the progress."
