Jimmy Rollins open to trade: 'If they blow everything up, then of course'
Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins says he's open to waving his no-trade clause and playing elsewhere. However, as Rollins told reporters, that depends on whether the team decides to rebuild.
"It really depends if everything is blown up," he said. "Then you take that into consideration. If they blow everything up, then of course."
In addition to the $11 million he'll make this year, Rollins, a three-time All-Star, is guaranteed another $11 million in 2015 if he reaches 434 plate appearances this season.
On Saturday, Rollins passed Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt to become Philadelphia’s all-time hits leader, with 2,235. The Phillies are currently in last place in the NL East.CHEN: Rollins sets Philadelphia Phillies franchise mark
