Phillies | Jimmy Rollins intends to stay

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.
