MLB | Jimmy Rollins open to play the keystone

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 13:48:04 -0800

Free-agent SS Jimmy Rollins (Dodgers) is open to playing second base, but he is currently still holding out for shortstop opportunities. Multiple teams have reached out to Rollins about moving to second base and signing with them, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Rollins is coming off the worst season of his career, and entering his age-37 campaign, the chances for a bounce-back showing aren't high. View him as a low-end option in cavernous mixed and single-universe leagues this spring. However, there is also potential for him to sign somewhere that won't have full-time at-bats available, so stay tuned for updates.

Nationals | Nats not looking at Jimmy Rollins

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 13:45:15 -0800

Free-agent SS Jimmy Rollins (Dodgers) is not being looked at by the Washington Nationals, according to general manager Mike Rizzo.

Fantasy Tip: Rollins posted a .224-13-41 line last year between the Philadelphia Phillies and LA Dodgers, and the feeling is Rollins might be on the decline. Rollins may be worth a late-round pickup at best, mainly as bench depth.

Dodgers | Corey Seager is starting SS

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 23:01:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager returned to the starting lineup in Game 4 of the National League Division Series Tuesday, Oct. 13, against the New York Mets. Manager Don Mattingly said Seager is his team's starting shortstop, and there is no platoon situation with SS Jimmy Rollins.

Fantasy Tip: Seager ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was hitless in Game 4, but he is a decent mid-tier FantasyScore play more often than not.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins starting Game 3

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 13:27:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is starting at shortstop and batting second against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey in Game 3 of the National League Division Series Monday, Oct. 12. SS Corey Seager is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Seager ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has started the first two games of the series but has gone just 1-for-8, so Rollins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) draws in Monday. Rollins finished out the season with a .255/.364/.340 slash line after Thursday, Sept. 1, and lands in a tough matchup Monday, so he is nothing more than a flier at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Corey Seager has a seat

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 16:22:50 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager is out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, with SS Jimmy Rollins hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: J-Roll ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has hit .303 against lefties this year as he takes on lefty Robbie Erlin. He doesn't have a lot of upside, but he's a low-end target on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Corey Seager sitting vs. Colorado

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 15:35:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager (legs) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25, because he was "heavy legged," according to manager Don Mattingly. SS Jimmy Rollins is starting at shortstop and batting second against Colorado Rockies SP David Hale Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Posting a .353/.457/.603 slash line through your first 19 major league games would be tiring. Seager ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) doesn't project to miss much time and should be able to take advantage of Coors Field this weekend. FantasyScore players shouldn't be afraid to tee up Rollins ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) for their lineups Friday.

Dodgers | Handful of Dodgers lefties sitting

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:20:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, OFs Carl Crawford, Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier and C Yasmani Grandal are all out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting leadoff, SS Jimmy Rollins is at shortstop and hitting second, OF Scott Van Slyke is at first base and hitting fifth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and OFs Chris Heisey and Scott Schebler round out the bottom of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to like here on FantasyScore with the overhaul of the L.A. lineup this afternoon against a southpaw. In fact, Corbin ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) makes a nice contrarian play if you're feeling lucky with a weak Dodgers lineup today.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins back in starting lineup

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 16:42:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Wednesday, Sept. 23. 2B Howie Kendrick draws out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rollins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been relegated to the bench and is making his first start since Sunday, Sept. 6. He is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats, including FantasyScore. Seasonal owners should be looking for an upgrade, too.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins still out

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 16:42:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins (finger) remains out of the lineup Monday, Sept. 21. SS Corey Seager is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jhoulys Chacin.

Fantasy Tip: Seager ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is a fine pick for your FantasyScore shortstop tonight. The rookie has immense upside at a thin position and has a triple slash line of .438/.538/.719 with a 1.257 OPS in 32 at-bats against right-handers since being called up this month.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins throwing again

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 16:16:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins (finger) has resumed throwing after being shut down with a sprained index finger.

Fantasy Tip: With the Dodgers trying to get Rollins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) healthy for a postseason run, there's not even a guarantee we'll see him at all for the rest of the regular season. Corey Seager ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has become the starting shortstop in the meantime and is a stud prospect with plenty of upside in all categories. He can certainly help you on a consistent basis at a thin position on FantasyScore as long as he's playing.
