J-Roll targets top of Phils' hits list, not a deadline deal

DETROIT -- There has not been any buzz about the Phillies trading Jimmy Rollins before Wednesday's 4 p.m. ET non-waiver Trade Deadline, but even if there were, it would not be easy to move the veteran shortstop.

"There are still a couple of things I'd like to be No. 1 in for this organization, so until those things are done, I'm not going anywhere," he said after Sunday's 12-4 loss to the Tigers at Comerica Park.

Rollins has five-and-10 rights because he has been with the organization since 2000, meaning he must approve any trade.

Rollins already ranks first in franchise history in games played by a shortstop (1,875) and doubles (441). He is fourth in hits (2,127), 80 behind Ed Delahanty for third place, 90 behind Richie Asbhurn for second place and 107 behind Mike Schmidt for first place. He is near the top in other offensive categories, too.

The hits mark certainly is within reach for Rollins, who is in the second year of a three-year, $33 million contract, which includes an easily attainable $11 million vesting option for 2015 based on plate appearances.
