"When you talk about shortstops I think of [the Yankees' Derek] Jeter, [the Marlins' Jose] Reyes and guys like that," said Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. "His run production is better than those guys."
In Friday's 12-6 win over the Astros, Rollins scored twice and homered to right field off Edgar Gonzalez to lead off the game among his two hits.
Rollins has five leadoff homers this season and his 42 career leadoff homers are a franchise record.
"We've got to talk about our leadoff guy," said Phillies third baseman Kevin Frandsen. "Jimmy's been unbelievable for us. How clutch he's been and his consistent at-bats.
"I feel he gets lost in the shuffle with everyone coming back healthy. He's been there all year for us and works like he always does."
