I have no idea, but seeing only 17K's in 135 AB would lead me to believe he is hitting the ball but not finding the holes. I'd wait a little longer.

He has hit .240, .260 before (when he was King at a much more rapid rate)- .289 was a career high. You have him for steals and runs and as far as I can tell he is getting steals and runs.

You are correct, I got him for steals and runs but he's hitting .239. :-[ Izturis and Lopez are FAs in my league and I'm tempted to...

Rollins did this last year too, for the first couple months he did absolutely nothing and then he was on fire for the last two months

I dealt Rollins, but it was a deal I probably would have made regardless of his current performance.

i think rollins is overrated...

remember 2001? wow... ;-D

his career AVG is around .260...so i wouldn't expect it to rise that much...he will still give you SB and Rs though...

he's prolly a better player in roto than hth...

Power: Rollins
Avg: Rollins
Runs: Rollins (cuz Reyes is a terrible lead off, 1 walk thus far)
RBIs: Rollins
Steals: Reyes, but can easily be a wash.

You can quote Rollins' career stats all you want but he has progressively gotten better each year, and so have his peripherals. Add that to the fact that he is a slow starter, and it makes a great buy low candidate.
