Free agent shortstop Jimmy Rollins is expected to re-sign with the Philadelphia Phillies shortly, according to multiple reports on Wednesday.
Rollins, a 33-year old former MVP, batted .268 last season with 16 home runs, 87 runs scored and 63 RBI. He has spent his entire MLB career with the Phillies.
Earlier this week, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told CSN Philly that re-signing Rollins was the team's top priority, and manager Charlie Manuel said he felt a deal would get done.
"I think there's a big chance that Jimmy is going to be back with us," said Manuel, who spoke to Rollins last week. "I feel that way, and I think it's going to get done. I think our organization -- when I listen to people upstairs and my general manager -- I think right now that's definitely our A plan."
