Spring Training is officially upon us and WSBGMs is gearing up for the 2014 season by previewing most of the players expected to be on the Phillies 25-man roster, either as individuals (ex- starting position players) or as groups (ex- bullpen and bench). Today's subject is franchise's longest tenured player, J-Roll.
Pros: Charismatic, smart on the base paths, continues to make the routine plays, is compiling some nice career totals for a shortstop, has something to prove.
Cons: Power is nearly gone, range has deteriorated, low on base percentage, doesn't routinely give 100%.
WSBGMs 2014 Projections for Jimmy Rollins:
147 G, .261/.703, 91 R, 32 DBL, 10 HR, 62 RBI, 21 SB.
