ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Jimmy Rollins wants to play in 2017.
Rollins never caught on anywhere else after the White Sox released him last June following a .221/.295/.329 batting line over 41 games. He's now 38 and will have to settle for a minor league contract just as he did last February. Rollins is a poor bet to find a job where he can earn significant playing time at this point.

The White Sox have requested waivers to release the recently DFA'd Jimmy Rollins.

The White Sox designated Rollins for assignment to make room for prospect Tim Anderson on Friday. As he has passed through waivers unclaimed, the team is now looking to grant him his unconditional release. The veteran shorstop hit just .221/.295/.329 with two homers and eight RBI across 149 at-bats prior to being cast aside. While he has struggled to hit with any kind of consistency in 2016, he could fit in with a contending team looking for a wise bench veteran.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the recently DFA'ed Jimmy Rollins is not considering retirement.

Rollins was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Friday morning, following the team's promotion of shortstop prospect Tim Anderson. While Rollins struggled to the tune of a .221/.295/.329 triple-slash this season, he is not without use as a veteran bench player and figures to receive interest from a contending club.

White Sox designated SS Jimmy Rollins for assignment.

The White Sox called up top shortstop prospect Tim Anderson on Friday, spelling the end for Rollins. The 37-year-old was hitting just .221/.295/.329 with two homers and eight RBI over 149 at-bats. Rollins posted a very similar triple-slash last season, too, and one has to wonder just how much juice is left in the veteran's bat. He had just 15 hits in his last 75 at-bats.

Jimmy Rollins is once again absent from the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

It was his only hit in five plate appearances on Friday, but he made it count. The 37-year-old is batting just .245/.310/.382 through 25 games this season after posting a .643 OPS last season with the Dodgers, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura continues to stick with him as his No. 2 hitter. To be fair, he has been swinging the bat better over the past couple of weeks.

May 9 - 7:44 AM

Jimmy Rollins (illness) is not in the White Sox's lineup Saturday against the Twins.

He's feeling under the weather. Tyler Saladino will fill in at shortstop for the second straight game. Rollins has struggled offensively this year, hitting only .229 with one homer and two stolen bases. The 37-year-old is no longer a fantasy option.
