Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated Wednesday that he's not completely committed to Jimmy Rollins in the leadoff spot.
Dee Gordon was the Dodgers' regular leadoff hitter last season, but he was traded to the Marlins over the winter. Rollins owns a .319 on-base percentage over the past three seasons, so he's never been the ideal leadoff hitter, but we still think he's the most likely candidate. Still, Mattingly will keep an open mind about the situation. Feb 25 - 12:21 PM

Dodgers acquired SS Jimmy Rollins and cash considerations from the Phillies in exchange for RHP Zach Eflin and LHP Tom Windle.

They had to wait for the Matt Kemp trade to become official (which it did Thursday night), as Eflin was part of the package the Dodgers got from the Padres. Rollins makes for a nice one-year option for the contending Dodgers, as he's coming off a nice 2014 season that saw him bat .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI while also played pretty good defense at shortstop. The Phillies are sending $1 million to the Dodgers in the deal.

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers is a "done deal."

The Phillies are expected to get two young pitchers in return for their all-time franchise hits leader. Rollins is due $11 million in 2015, the final year of his contract. The 36-year-old batted .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI in 138 games this past season and also played pretty good defense at shortstop.

ESPN's Jayson Stark is getting increasing indications there's "a real chance" of a Jimmy Rollins deal between the Phillies and Dodgers.

However, he hears that a Cole Hamels deal between the clubs is unlikely. Rollins has a full no-trade clause, but he's reportedly willing to waive it to go to the Dodgers. The 36-year-old batted .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI over 138 games this past season and is owed $11 million in 2015.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that that Jimmy Rollins would approve a trade to the Dodgers.

The Dodgers need a shortstop, but their level of interest in Rollins isn't known. With full 10-and-5 rights, the 36-year-old reportedly isn't willing to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Mets or A's. The Phillies hope to land a legitimate prospect if they end up dealing him.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Phillies have informed the Mets that Jimmy Rollins is not willing to waive his no-trade to go there.

The Phillies have had discussions with the Yankees this winter about a potential deal, but have informed the Mets and other interested teams if the veteran shortstop was willing to waive the clause before even attempting to negotiate a deal. The Mets remain on the hunt for a starting shortstop, but will have to explore other avenues.

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.

According to Jayson Stark of ESPN, the Yankees talked to the Phillies about acquiring shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

However, the Phillies' asking price was too high, so the Yankees have moved on. Oh, Ruben. Rollins, who has a full no-trade clause, batted .243/.323/.394 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI over 138 games this past season. He turns 36 this week and is owed $11 million next season.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets talked to the Phillies about the availability of Jimmy Rollins.

The Mets have cast a wide net in their search for a shortstop and acquiring Rollins would represent an unlikely alliance. However, it's not expected to happen, as Rubin hears that Rollins doesn't want to leave Philadelphia. The 35-year-old has a full no-trade clause and is due $11 million next season.

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.

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) hit, fielded grounders and ran the bases before Tuesday's game.

It's encouraging, but the Phillies still aren't sure if he'll play at all during the final week. Rollins hasn't played since September 8 due to a left hamstring strain. "We're not going to push him," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.
Wed, Sep 24, 2014 10:04:00 AM

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) has been ruled out through the weekend.

Rollins had been hoping to play in his hometown of Oakland, but he tested out his strained left hamstring on Saturday and evidently still isn't feeling good enough for game action. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg was non-committal when asked if Rollins would play again this season. "We'll see," Sandberg said. "We'll see how he does and how he goes. I'm not going one way or another on it. Just watching the progress."

Once again, Jimmy Rollins is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Friday.

Rollins still must show that he can run sprints without any issues before rejoining the Phillies lineup. He's still expected to return at some point over the weekend.

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) could return to the lineup on Friday.

It just so happens that the Phillies are in Oakland, where Rollins grew up. The shortstop hasn't played since September 8 due to a left hamstring strain but tested things out on Thursday. He's hit .243/.323/.394 with 17 homers and 28 stolen bases for Philly this season.

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) has progressed to doing some indoor exercises.

"Jimmy's progressing with some activities inside," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Some exercise work and some things. He seems to be doing better." Although there's no timetable for Rollins' return, Sandberg suggested that if it wasn't September, Rollins wouldn't be a candidate for the DL. That indicates that he shouldn't be out too much longer.
