Rollins has a mini five-game hit streak, but he's still batting a paltry .228/.253/.315 in the month of June.

Meanwhile, Corey Seager has hit in six straight (.348 BA, 2 HR) for Triple-A Oklahoma. There have been no rumblings that a Seager promotion is coming any time soon however.

Rollins will not be in the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs, True Blue LA's Eric Stephen reports.

Rollins is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

An 0-for-3 showing in Tuesday's game brought Rollins' average for the season back below the Mendoza Line (.198). The 36-year-old will head to the bench Wednesday as Enrique Hernandez steps in at short, but his primary role appears safe for now with the Dodgers insisting that they are not on the verge of promoting top prospect Corey Seager.

Rollins is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Rollins will get the night off with left-hander Robbie Ray on the hill for Arizona. Enrique Hernandez will take over at shortstop and bat ninth.

Rollins hit his seventh home run in Monday's win over the Diamondbacks, a three-run shot off Rubby De La Rosa.

The home run was Rollins's only hit of the game. Rollins's average sits at a brutal .208 and even though the power is there with seven home runs and eight doubles this year, he hasn't been able to find a rhythm this season.

Rollins was moved all the way down to eighth in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday.

This move comes while Rollins is in the midst of his hottest stretch at the plate of the season. He has a six-game hitting streak going and has risen his average from .192 to .210 over the past week. The move may not be permanent, but Justin Turner will occupy the two hole in the Dodgers' lineup, at least on Saturday.

Rollins went 2-for-4 with a double in a 3-0 loss to the Cardinals on Friday.

Rollins and Justin Turner were the only Dodgers hitters who showed up on Friday; as a result, the team got shut out on the road for the fourth straight time. He started slow, but Rollins has hit safely in six straight games now, raising his average from .192 to .210. He's certainly not the fantasy asset he once was, but Rollins still offers some speed and pop at the thin shortstop position.
