Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base, and a run scored Friday against the Marlins.

Rollins filled up the box score Friday, notching his first triple of the season and his second stolen base along the way. The 35-year-old is clearly on the downside of his career, but he should still provide enough pop and speed to have value in most mixed leagues.

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-5 with a stolen base against the Cubs on Sunday.

Rollins has only played four games due to the birth of his child, and the stolen base was his first of the season. The multi-hit game was also his first this year, as he'd had just two hits in 14 at-bats heading into the game. The shortstop stole 22 bases last year and should still have some steals in his legs, even at 35 years old.

Jimmy Rollins hit a grand slam off the Rangers' Tanner Scheppers for his 200th career homer in Monday's win.

That'll quiet people down for a while. Rollins nearly missed the opener to be with his wife as she gave birth. The grand slam was the fourth of his career. He's just the 11th shortstop to reach 200 career homers.

Jimmy Rollins is in the Phillies' starting lineup for Monday's season-opener against the Rangers.

Rollins was a late arrival to Arlington, Texas because his wife was giving birth to the couple's second child. He hit just .173/.271/.346 this spring and isn't an ideal fantasy (or real-life) shortstop in his age-35 season.

Jimmy Rollins is expected to be in the Phillies' lineup for Monday's season-opener against the Rangers.

Rollins didn't travel with his Phillies teammates to Arlington, Texas on Sunday because his wife was giving birth to the couple's second child, but he should arrive by Monday's 2:05 p.m. ET first pitch. The veteran shortstop batted just .173/.271/.346 in 59 plate appearances this spring and was benched for a stretch due to a lack of hustle. It could be an ugly summer.

Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that Jimmy Rollins could potentially be away from the Phillies on Opening Day as his wife prepares to give birth to the couple's second child.

Rollins did not travel with the team to Texas, but could still get there prior to the start of the game on Monday. If he's placed on paternity leave, Reid Brignac or Ronny Cedeno could be recalled to take his place.
