Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in Monday's starting lineup against Marco Estrada and the Milwaukee Brewers.
Insight: We don't think Rollins (.244, 8 HR, 32 RBI, 16 SB) is hurt, just a day of rest. Of course, with the trade deadline just around the corner, he might be out of the lineup because he's being dealt.

Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins insisted during spring training that he would not waive his no-trade clause but now he seems a little more open to it. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Rollins (.250, 8 HR, 26 RBI) recently passed Mike Schmidt to become Philadelphia's all-time hits leader. Though Rollins' preference is to remain with the team that drafted him in 1996, he acknowledged that there's always a chance the last-place Phillies could "blow everything up."

Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins became the Phillies' all-time hit leader Saturday with a single in the fifth inning.
Insight: Rollins has 2,235 hits, one better than Mike Schmidt. The shortstop has had a solid season, hitting .249 with eight homers, 26 RBI, 34 runs and 11 steals. He refused to waive his no-trade clause at the trade deadline last year because he said he wanted to set some Phillies records. Now that he's Philadelphia's all-time hit king, perhaps he'll waive his no-trade this season.

Description: Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins is 5-for-9 (.556) with a pair of home runs against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson.
