JIMMY ROLLINS RUMORS

Jimmy Rollins adjusts to new uniform back home in California

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Jimmy Rollins savors a bite of bacon at his locker, then steals a quick glimpse at the bright blue No. 11 uniform hanging behind him. It's before 8 a.m. in the desert and the veteran shortstop becomes a bit poetic about it all, the cross-country move back to his home state of California, going from wearing bright red in Philadelphia to a more subdued blue. ...

Los Angeles Dodgers rumors: Yoan Moncada edition

The Los Angeles Dodgers added Jimmy Rollins and Howie Kendrick to their infield, giving them arguably one of the strongest infields they have had in years. With Adrian Gonzalez at first, Kendrick and Rollins up the middle and Juan Uribe at third, 2015 should be a phenomenal year for the Dodgers’ infield defensively. Gonzalez and Rollins have four gold gloves each, and Uribe could...

Jimmy Rollins says goodbye to Philly in full-page Inquirer ad

The Jimmy Rollins era in Philadelphia is a wrap, and to thank the demanding, loyal, passionate Philly fans, the club’s long-time shortstop took out a full-page ad in Saturday’s Philadelphia Inquirer. Jimmy Rollins bought a full-page ad in Saturday’s @PhillyInquirer: pic.twitter.com/ct2rRiw2sU — Matt Gelb (@MattGelb) December 20, 2014 In case the font is too small…...

Philadelphia Phillies showing commitment to their rebuild

This past week has been one of the busiest weeks in recent Phillies history. Last week, I wrote about how I would be surprised to see Rollins or Utley go, given their value to the city beyond just baseball and now, a week later, Rollins is gone. The caveat was if the team got an offer they couldn’t refuse or if the player decided to take one last go at a title. Both of these...

Dodgers acquire Jimmy Rollins

The Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t waste much time replacing Hanley Ramirez at shortstop. According to multiple reports, the defending NL West champions have acquired veteran Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies (via CSN Philly). The interesting dynamic here is that Rollins waived his no-trade clause to go to the Dodgers. That has been a point of contention over the past couple...

Report: Jimmy Rollins would green light trade to Dodgers

The Philadelphia Phillies would love to move shortstop Jimmy Rollins and the $11 million he’s owed in 2015. However, Rollins has ten and five rights, and would need to give his approval for any trade. He already shot down a trade to the Mets and wouldn’t approve a deal to the A’s. Rollins did say he would accept a move to the Yankees, but Phillies GM Ruben Amaro’s demands...

The Mets tried to trade for Jimmy Rollins

This would have been something else – according to a report from Adam Rubin of ESPN.com, the New York Mets attempted to bring over long-time rival Jimmy Rollins from the Phillies in a trade. Of course, the trade was blocked. The Mets, in need of a shortstop, spoke with the Philadelphia Phillies about acquiring Jimmy Rollins in a trade, sources told ESPNNewYork.com. The pursuit...

WATCH: Umpire Laz Diaz salsas with Phillie Phanatic

Whether it’s driving a four-wheeler around the ballpark or shooting a hot dog gun at a pig mascot, Phillie Phanatic has been known to pump up crowds with his antics. And he can dance like a pro—other mascots dare not challenge him. But umpire Laz Diaz had no problem engaging in a dance-off with the team’s mascot during Wednesday night’s Astros-Phillies game. And he showcased...

Rollins’ Historic Place in Phils History

Yesterday, Jimmy Rollins walked two times and hit his fifth home run of the season. Rollins is getting on base and hitting for power: his .359 OBP ranks third and J-Rol ranks ninth in slugging and fifth in OPS among all MLB shortstops. His .262/.359/.428 line is his best since 2008, the year after he won the NL MVP award. It is sort of amazing that Rollins’ accomplishments aren’t...

WATCH: Jimmy Rollins hits walk-off homer, curses out fan

Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has had quite the start to his 2014 MLB season, so I’m sure last night was his reaction to everything that’s gone on. Rollins hit a solo home run over the left field wall to give the Phillies a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park in the top of the 10th inning. Rollins knew it was gone the moment he hit it, and stoical...
