Description: One day after Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins went 3-for-5 with a walk-off homer, he was 0-for-5 Sunday against the Marlins.
Insight: Rollins got his average up to .316 after Saturday's performance but he's back down to .279. He has good numbers -- two homers, 10 RBI, seven runs, two steals -- and is worth owning in 12-team leagues because shortstop is so shallow, but we aren't confident he'll keep this up after a horrible 2013 season.
 
4/11/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has taken five walks over his last four games.
Insight: Rollins went 2-for-3 with a triple, two walks and a steal Friday and is up to .273 with eight RBI and two steals this season. He hasn't struck out since April 6.
 
4/4/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is back in the lineup for Friday's game against Chicago, according to Philadelphia staff writer Matt Gelb.
Insight: Rollins left the club for the birth of his baby. Once a top-five fantasy shortstop, Rollins' numbers have faded to the level of a low-end starter. He can still steal 20-plus bases, but the days of 20 HR and 40 SB are long gone.
 
4/2/2014 5:00:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in Wednesday's line and has headed home to be with his wife for the birth of his child.
Insight: Once a top-five fantasy shortstop, Rollins' numbers have faded to the level of a low-end starter. He can still steal 20-plus bases, but the days of 20 HR and 40 SB are long gone. Jayson Nix will replace him against Texas on Wednesday night.
 
4/1/2014 10:51:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is likely to miss a game or two this week with his wife expected their second child any day now.
Insight: Rollins hit the 200th homer of his career in the season opener. Once a top-five fantasy shortstop, Rollins' numbers have faded to the level of a low-end starter. He can still steal 20-plus bases, but the days of 20 HR and 40 SB are long gone.
 
3/31/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins hit a grand slam in the top of the second inning Monday for his 200th career home run.
Insight: Rollins didn't have a hit in his other five at-bats, but it's good to see some power out of him after he dropped from 23 in 2012 to six last year.

Insight: Rollins left the team to see the birth of his second child but arrived in Arlington just in time to suit up for Monday's season opener. We had him ranked 21st among shortstops in our preseason fantasy rankings.
 
3/30/2014 7:47:00 PM
Description: According to Todd Zolecki of mlb.com, Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is expected to be in the Opening Day lineup Monday against the Rangers.
Insight: Rollins' wife is due to give birth to the couple's second child. The 35-year-old hit just .252 with six home runs, 39 RBI, 65 runs, 22 steals and a .666 OPS in 160 games last season and has had his leadership abilities questioned this spring.
 
3/30/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Shortstop Jimmy Rollins is iffy for Monday's season opener against the Rangers because his wife is due to give birth, according to Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Insight: Rollins has every right to be with his wife, but it's poor timing to miss Opening Day after his leadership ability was called into question during spring training. The 35-year-old hit just .252 with six home runs, 39 RBI, 65 runs, 22 steals and a .666 OPS in 160 games last season and should only be drafted as a late-round flyer in deep fantasy leagues.
 
3/19/2014 9:01:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins isn't willing to waive his no-trade clause. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: He's been in Ryne Sandberg's doghouse all spring and this show of defiance certainly won't ease the tension between the two. As a player with 10-5 rights, Rollins has veto power over any trade. After hitting just .252 across 600 at bats last season, Rollins is no longer a must-own fantasy player.
 
3/13/2014 5:21:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is expected to play Friday after missing the last three games, according to beat writer Matt Gelb.
Insight: Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg has kept Rollins out of the lineup, possibly to send him a message about his lack of hustle. Rollins hit just .252 with six homers, 22 steals, 65 runs and a .666 OPS last season in 160 games.
 
3/12/2014 10:49:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins will be out of the lineup a third straight game Thursday against the Yankees even though manager Ryne Sandberg says Rollins is "fine." SOURCE: csnphilly.com
Insight: Sandberg may be sending Rollins a message about his lack of hustle, something old manager Charlie Manuel put up with. Rollins hit just .252 with six homers, 22 steals, 65 runs and a .666 OPS last season in 160 games.
 
Hot9/21/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins is a .500 lifetime hitter versus Mets righthander Dillon Gee.
Insight: Rollins has been rolling lately. Over his last nine games, the former NL MVP has gone 14-for-34 (.412) at the plate with a home run and two RBI. The hot streak should continue for Rollins Saturday against Gee.
 
9/15/2013 10:30:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is a .190 hitter against Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann.
Insight: He comes into play Sunday 4-for-21 with a .561 OPS against Zimmermann. Rollins only hit .250 last year but he blasted 23 homers, scored 102 runs and stole 30 bags to rank as one of fantasy's top shortstops. He still has the low average -- .246 this year -- but only has six homers, 56 runs and 20 steals in 146 games.
 
Cold9/13/2013 10:13:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is 2-for-18 (.111) with seven strikeouts against Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: like most of the Phillies, Rollins' 2013 has really been a disaster (.246, 6 HR, 38 RBI) in all areas. A date with the hard-throwing Strasburg (7-9, 2.96 ERA, 1.04 ERA ) isn't likely to help.
 
9/2/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins doesn't have a great track record against Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: 2013 has really been a disaster for Rollins (.244, 5 HR, 35 RBI) in all areas. A date with the hard-throwing Strasburg (6-9, 2.96 ERA) on Labor Day won't help the former MVP turn things around.
 
Cold8/23/2013 7:06:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins won't start Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Insight: Rollins is only hitting .136 over his last seven games. John McDonald will be getting the start in Rollins' place.
 
Cold8/18/2013 11:17:00 AM
Description: Slumping Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins will have the day off on Sunday.
Insight: He's hitless in the series and just 1-for-15 in his last four outings. Michael Martinez (.192, 0 HR, 2 RBI) is getting the start at shortstop.
 
8/11/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is just 1-for-12 (.083) with five K against Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: Rollins, who ended up as the No. 1 fantasy shortstop last year after hitting .250 with 23 homers, 68 RBI, 102 runs and 30 steals, is once again hitting in the .250s but has failed to produce up to last year's level in other categories. He has just five home runs, 33 RBI, 44 runs, 15 steals and a .653 OPS in 439 at-bats.
 
6/25/2013 10:10:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is a career .152 hitter (7-for-46) against San Diego's Tuesday starter Jason Marquis.
Insight: Rollins is batting .261 with four homers, 25 RBI and 28 runs scored and seven stolen bases. That's about what you can expect from him these days. He's not really an everyday starter - you must find the favorable matchups and this isn't one of them.
