Scott Rolen is leaning towards playing at least one more season.  This comes after he has gone back and forth about the possibility of retiring.  While he has not made an official decision, Rolen never closed the door on playing again while mulling over whether or not to hang up the cleats.  Now, it is possible the Cincinnati Reds could look to bring Rolen back. According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Reds' GM Walt Jocketty did not rule out the possibility of Rolen returning to Cincinnati.  Of course, this does not mean it will happen, but the club has been in contact with Rolen's agent throughout the offseason. Rolen has been linked to numerous teams this offseason, but the biggest question had been regarding the possibility of retirement.  Is Rolen going to play another year or not?  Fay reported earlier in the day yesterday that he was hearing Rolen was leaning toward a return. More on the Reds: Rumors, extensions, and other updates. Rolen has battled shoulder issues for most of his career.  The injuries have kept him from ever becoming the player most people thought he could be.  Last season, Rolen hit the disabled list once again with an injury to his left shoulder.  He underwent surgery on his shoulder in 2011.  The list of injuries preceding that surgery goes on and on.  But Rolen has battled hard to comeback every time. In his career, Rolen has played 17 Major League seasons.  He is a lifetime .281/.364/.490 hitter.  Rolen went to seven All-Star Games and won Rookie of the Year in 1997.  He also won eight Gold Gloves for his fantastic play at third base.  If he were to retire, he could be proud of his numbers.  But it seems Rolen wants to give it one more try.
