The Detroit Tigers' shortstop situation is in limbo with the news of the injury to Jose Iglesias. Naturally, with a team needing a shortstop, Jimmy Rollins' name enters the conversation.
But the conversation will be short.
CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury reports Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins will not waive his no-trade clause to join the Tigers, or any team for that matter. He sits just 60 hits shy of breaking Mike Schmidt's franchise-record for most hits and Rollins has previously stated he wants to stay to break records with the Phillies.
It does not seem like that feeling is mutual as the Phillies were reportedly "very willing to move" Jimmy Rollins back in December but all moves would have to be approved by the Gold Glove shortstop. A move might not be a bad thing as there appears to be bad blood brewing between Rollins and new manager Ryne Sandberg.
Rollins, 35, batted .252/.318/.348 with six home runs and 39 RBIs in 160 games last season for the Phillies. The six home runs and 39 RBIs were the fewest for the former-MVP in any full season. Yes, lower than the eight home runs and 41 RBIs he has in 88 games in 2010.
