Rollins' agent talking with mystery team

PBR - Reports surfaced Tuesday afternoon that Jimmy Rollins' agent Dan Lozano was in communication with a club other than the Phillies regarding a multi-year deal.

Rollins had been seeking a five-year deal, but that was before Alex Gonazalez signed with Milwaukee and Rafael Furcal returned to St. Louis.

As it stands now, the market for shortstops is slim. Detroit is rumored to be the mystery club, but the Tigers already have Jhonny Peralta signed through 2012.

Despite the rumors, the Phillies remain a likely fit with Rollins.
