Jimmy Rollins Not Signed By Phillies As of Now

UPDATE: According to Jim Salisbury from Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia, the two sides have not agreed. Salisbury posted quotes from both Phillies GM Ruben Amaro and Rollins' agent Dan Lozano stating that they are still working.

According to Jim Bowden of MLB Network and ESPN, the Philadelphia Phillies have re signed short stop Jimmy Rollins. Bowden credits Jim Duquette of MLB Network Sirius Radio.

Just earlier today it was reported by Ken Rosenthal that the Phillies were not close to signing Rollins, so this comes kind of as a surprise. Maybe we could have seen this coming, however, when they decided to back off on third baseman free agent Aramis Ramirez.

The Milwaukee Brewers heard earlier today that Rollins would be staying with the Phillies, said Chris Singleton. The Phillies needed to keep Rollins, with the top free agent signing as Jose Reyes in Miami, and the Phillies do not have any shortstop prospects even remotely ready. They may have had some interest with Hanley Ramirez of Miami, but they opted to keep more of the sure thing in Rollins.

Terms of the deal have not yet been released. Stay tuned to MLB Daily Dish for more.-
