Watch: Sandberg 'trying to get a point across'
Share This Post

The Phillies say Jimmy Rollins is healthy, but the veteran shortstop will be absent from the starting lineup for a third consecutive game on Thursday.

Is manager Ryne Sandberg sending Rollins, who is hitting just .133 this spring, a message (see story)?

Sandberg was asked whether anything was going on with Rollins after Wednesday’s game in Sarasota.

“No, he’s fine,” Sandberg said.

Phillies analyst Ricky Bottalico breaks down the situation in the video above.
