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.
