Jimmy Rollins SS LAD 2 days ago

Rollins is out of the lineup Thursday, Dodgers reporter Alanna Rizzo reports.

He will get a rare day off as his bat seems to have cooled after a four-hit game last week. Enrique Hernandez will get the start at shortstop Thursday.

Rollins exploded for a season-high four hits in Friday's 6-4 win over the Rockies. He was a triple short of the cycle and drove in two runs and scored twice.

It's only the fifth multi-hit game to date for Rollins, whose presence in the second spot of a stacked Dodgers lineup probably has more to do with his reputation rather than his production at some point. Rollins is only batting .198 with a .279 on-base percentage, but thanks to the upgrade in talent around him compared to his latter years with the Phillies, he's still been a decent source of counting stats. He's accumulated four homers, 13 RBI, 19 runs, and three stolen bases over 147 plate appearances.

Rollins is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins, David Vassegh of AM 570 Los Angeles reports.

Rollins collected a pair of hits in Tuesday's win, his first multi-hit game since Apr. 14 and just his fourth of the season, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday in favor of Enrique Hernandez at shortstop. Justin Turner, who is starting at third base, will bat second against right-hander Jarred Cosart.

Rollins is out of the lineup Thursday.

In a day game following a night game the slumping veteran shortstop will get a rest Thursday. While the Dodgers came into the season with plans of Rollins being the starting shortstop all season and bridging the gap for Corey Seager's arrival, Rollins has not performed close to expectations. He will need to turn things around at the plate over the next couple months to stave off the young phenom in the second half. Enrique Hernandez will get the start at shortstop Thursday.

Rollins is out of the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Rollins will get his first day off since Apr. 23 on Saturday, with Kike Hernandez starting in his place and batting eighth for the Dodgers. The veteran has struggled at the plate to begin the season, but perhaps a day off will allow him to begin turning things around.

Rollins will bat second Wednesday against the Giants, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rollins has struggled mightily of late, with just three hits in his last eight games (29 at-bats), leading manager Don Mattingly to relieve him of leadoff duties at least temporarily. Joc Pederson will take over atop the order Wednesday, and if he provides a spark from the leadoff spot, the skipper may be inclined to stick with this change until Yasiel Puig (hamstring) returns from the DL.

Rollins is out of the lineup Thursday, Dodgers reporter Alanna Rizzo reports.

Justin Turner will get the start at shortstop against Ryan Vogelsong and the Giants. Both Rollins and Juan Uribe are getting the day off on the left side of the infield but will presumably be back in the lineup for this weekend's series against the Padres.

Rollins is not in the lineup Monday against the Mariners.

Rollins will get the day off Monday with the left-handed James Paxton on the mound. While Rollins' splits batting left versus right are extremely similar, Darwin Barney (who's starting in his place), is a much better hitter against south paws. The scenario makes it the ideal situation for the veteran to take a rest, but he should be back in the lineup Tuesday.

Rollins was 2-for-4 with a walk, stolen base, and go-ahead three-run homer on Monday's win over the Padres.

Not a bad debut. Rollins may be old, but he's been durable and productive in his later years and should continue to function as the team's leadoff man.

Rollins was 1-for-3 on Sunday and is now batting .364 (8-for-22) with three extra-base hits so far this spring.

He's yet to swipe a base, but Rollins should be good for plenty of those as the Dodgers' leadoff man this year.
