Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins smacked a pair of home runs Friday against the Nationals.
Insight: Rollins had three RBI in the victory. He's followed up a 7-for-41 (.171) stretch by going 5-for-12 with three homers and seven RBI in his last three games.

Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-4 with a homer and two RBI Wednesday against the Brewers.
Insight: Rollins was in a 7-for-41 (.171) slump and 7-for-39 (.179) in his career against Brewers starter Kyle Lohse, so he wasn't likely used in many fantasy leagues on Wednesday.
 
Cold7/9/2014 1:22:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is 0-for-15 in his last five games and he won't get any relief Wednesday against Brewers starter Kyle Lohse.
Insight: Rollins is 7-for-39 (.179) in his career against the Milwaukee veteran right-hander. He's also in a 7-for-41 (.171) slump, so avoid him Wednesday.
 
7/7/2014 4:07:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in Monday's starting lineup against Marco Estrada and the Milwaukee Brewers.
Insight: We don't think Rollins (.244, 8 HR, 32 RBI, 16 SB) is hurt, just a day of rest. Of course, with the trade deadline just around the corner, he might be out of the lineup because he's being dealt.
 
7/5/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is just 1-for-12 (.083) versus Pirated right-hander Edinson Volquez.
Insight: Rollins (.247, 8 HR, 32 RBI, 16 SB) might get the day off to rest. He's not the guy he was from 2004-2007, but he's still got game.
 
6/28/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against Ervin Santana and the Braves.
Insight: Rollins (.247, 8 HR, 30 RBI, 13 SB) is just 1-for-9 versus Santana, so this is a good opportunity to give the "old guy" some rest.
 
6/23/2014 10:16:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is 8-for-21 (.381) with a 1.099 OPS versus Miami right-hander Nathan Eovaldi.
Insight: Rollins (.244, 8 HR, 29 RBI, 11 SB) is no longer a top fantasy shortstop, but you can still pick and choose a few good matchups. This is one of them.

Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins insisted during spring training that he would not waive his no-trade clause but now he seems a little more open to it. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Rollins (.250, 8 HR, 26 RBI) recently passed Mike Schmidt to become Philadelphia's all-time hits leader. Though Rollins' preference is to remain with the team that drafted him in 1996, he acknowledged that there's always a chance the last-place Phillies could "blow everything up."
 
6/14/2014 6:59:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins became the Phillies' all-time hit leader Saturday with a single in the fifth inning.
Insight: Rollins has 2,235 hits, one better than Mike Schmidt. The shortstop has had a solid season, hitting .249 with eight homers, 26 RBI, 34 runs and 11 steals. He refused to waive his no-trade clause at the trade deadline last year because he said he wanted to set some Phillies records. Now that he's Philadelphia's all-time hit king, perhaps he'll waive his no-trade this season.
 
6/14/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins is 5-for-9 (.556) with a pair of home runs against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson.
Insight: Rollins tied Mike Schmidt for the Phillies all-time hit record (2,234) on Friday night and should break the record in this favorable matchup on Saturday. He's batting .249 this season with eight homers, 26 RBI, 33 runs and 10 steals. That's certainly fantasy worthy.
 
6/7/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins has homered in back-to-back games.
Insight: Rollins is up to eight dingers on the year, two more than he had all of last season.
 
6/4/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins has been useless against Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: Rollins (.252, 6 HR, 22 RBI) has two hits in 20 at bats versus Strasburg with eight strikeouts. That doesn't bode well for Wednesday's matchup. Hopefully you have a backup shortstop you can use in place of Rollins.
 
6/2/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in Monday's starting lineup against the Mets.
Insight: No injury, just a routine day off. Rollins is batting .251 with six homers. 22 RBI, 28 runs and seven steals. Cesar Hernandez will get the start, but with a .156 batting average has no fantasy value.
 
5/20/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins already has as many homers this season as he hit all of last year.
Insight: Rollins (.268) went deep for the second straight game and the sixth time this season Tuesday against the Marlins. He's displayed much more plate discipline and has a career-high 13.3 BB%. He's scored 25 runs, driven in 20 and stolen six bases.

Description: Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg isn't sure when Jimmy Rollins will be ready to play shortstop again. SOURCE: Phillies.com
Insight: Groin issues have limited him to DH duty over the past few days. Unfortunately, the Phillies won't have that luxury when they return to National League play on Friday. Rollins is 50-50 to play in tomorrow's series opener against the Mets.
 
5/8/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has a 1.012 OPS in his career against Toronto starter R.A. Dickey.
Insight: Rollins has gone 7-for-23 (.304) with three doubles, a triple and a homer against the knuckleballer. The shortstop went 0-for-3 in his return to the lineup Wednesday after sitting out a couple of days due to a groin injury.
 
5/7/2014 4:27:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins (groin) will serve as the DH Wednesday at Toronto, according to Todd Zolecki of mlb.com.
Insight: Rollins didn't start the last two games, but the Phillies have the ability to use a DH with Wednesday's game taking place in an AL park. The shortstop is batting .271 with three homers, 15 RBI, 15 runs and five steals this season, a dramatic improvement from 2013.
 
5/6/2014 4:36:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins (groin) is not in the starting lineup for the second straight game Tuesday against Toronto, according to Todd Zolecki of mlb.com.
Insight: Rollins pinch hit Monday, but he's not ready to start. The shortstop is batting .271 with three homers, 15 RBI, 15 runs and five steals this season, a dramatic improvement from 2013.
 
5/4/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins pounded four hits in Saturday's win over the Nationals.
Insight: It was his first four-hit game since June 12th of 2012. Before breaking out on Saturday, Rollins had been 1-for-14 with four strikeouts over his previous four games. He's hitting .272 for the season, which is pretty consistent with his career average of .269.
 
4/20/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins belted three hits in Sunday's win against the Rockies.
Insight: Rollins has been surprisingly effective this season with 13 RBI and a .292 average through 16 games. Last April he hit just .260 with seven runs driven in. We'll see if he can stay hot Monday when the Phillies travel to Chavez Ravine to begin a four-game set with the Dodgers.
