Avg OPSInjuries have taken a toll on Jimmy. He started the season well and after his second stint on the DL Jimmy had three hits against the Blue Jays on June 27 to raise his average to .311. But he's lost 80 points on his average in about three weeks and is 2 for his last 20.
2007 .296 .875
2008 .277 .786
2009 .250 .719
2010 .232 .725
It's hard to find a good shortstop so even a light-hitting Rollins is valuable, but given the steady decrease in production, it's time to reassess his role in the lineup. He should probably be moved down in the lineup but philosophically it might be time to stop thinking about Jimmy as key offensive cog. When Utley comes back he becomes the 7-hole hitter with Victorino moving up.
Jimmy will be 32 next season and will be making $8.5 in the last year of his contract with the Phils. It's been a great contract for the Phils but if Jimmy's trends continue it will be interesting to see what this team will offer him. Of course, a lot of things can happen in a year and a half.
