The Phillies are "very willing" to trade Jimmy Rollins, according to a report from ESPN's Buster Olney.
The 35-year-old Rollins is signed through 2014 and has a vesting option that could be worth $11 million in 2015 if he reaches 434 plate appearances and does not end the season on the disabled list.
A three-time All-Star, Rollins is coming off the worst offensive season of his career where he hit a meager .252 with six home runs and 39 RBI. He did, however, swipe 22 bases.
Rollins made it clear last season that he intends to finish his career in Philadelphia, but the Phillies may look to move him to avoid the vesting option.
