Report – Jimmy Rollins to Move to 2B?
Our old friend Jimmy Rollins could be moving positions.
According to a report, Rollins has multiple teams after him, but there's a catch: he'd have to move to second base.
In the same tweet, Ken Rosenthal reports that Rollins is "open to the idea," but also waiting to see if other shortstop opportunities become available.
Rollins, 37, is currently a free agent after spending last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers appearing in 144 games finishing the season with a .224 batting average.
A move to second base for Rollins would be interesting as he has played the shortstop his entire career.
Although according to Baseball Reference, Rollins did appear in one game at 2B in the 2002 season for the Phillies.
Clearly, with phenom Corey Seager now in the big leagues with the Dodgers, a starting gig with his former team is virtually impossible. With the resigning of Chase Utley, however, Rollins still could return and provide a bench role.
So that's where a switching of positions could come into play if Rollins wants to continue to be a starting player in MLB.
