Philadelphia Phillies SS Jimmy Rollins has left the team for the birth of his child.
Fantasy Tip: Rollins will probably be placed on the paternity list, meaning he could miss the next three days. On the current roster, Jayson Nix makes the most sense to replace Rollins for a few games.

Philadelphia Phillies SS Jimmy Rollins has brushed off trade talks surrounding himself. "Because I can't be traded," Rollins said. "It doesn't matter. I don't care which way it is tried to be twisted or said, or if it is exactly how it was said, or even if it was said, I can't be traded. It doesn't matter. If I was tradable it may have weight because that means I could be moving soon. But I am not tradable and so it doesn't matter." As a 10-and-5 player, Rollins can veto any trade proposed.

Philadelphia Phillies SS Jimmy Rollins, who is on the trade block, fully intends to stay with the team, and he has the right to veto any trade proposals made by the team. Rollins is 60 hits shy of breaking former 3B Mike Schmidt's franchise record for hits. Some influential people on the team would like Rollins to be more of a leader by working harder on a daily basis to set a strong example for the rest of the team.
Fantasy Tip: Rollins might benefit from a change of scenery. Regardless, his declining power and speed are concerns, and he's unlikely to be a 20-20 player anymore. He's a fall-back option at shortstop once the top names come off the board.

Philadelphia Phillies SS Jimmy Rollins will be held out of the Grapefruit League lineup Thursday, March 13, for the third straight day. Rollins is over the stomach bug that held him out recently. Manager Ryne Sandberg gave praise to SS Freddy Galvis, saying he was a positive influence in the lineup. When asked if he thought the same way about Rollins, he said "No comment."
Fantasy Tip: Interesting. Is he trying to light a fire under Rollins? Does he have an issue with J-Roll's effort? Galvis isn't anything more than NL-only filler with mild offensive potential. Rollins has been in decline but still offers midrange mixed value at his position. Any ongoing tension could jeopardize Rollins' playing time, though this may be a bold ploy by Sandberg to get more out of his veteran.
