Over 115 runs scored the last two years would help any team.
He's only played 5 full seasons. They avg out to .275 12 HR's 60 RBI's 35 steals and 100 runs a year in his only 5 yrs in the league. He is what he is and I would bet his numbers come very close to those career numbers before the year is over. He is 27 yrs old and there is no reason I can see that he doesn't turn this whole thing around again.
Not if he trashes your team batting average. He's the Adam Dunn of base stealers.
Except he's not stealing bases this year. He's averaging less than one steal attempt per week. That's horrible.
This is why he's called a buy low candidate. If he was performing magnificently, this post wouldn't exist. Yes, he's hitting badly now. Which is why you trade very little for him and hope he rebounds. And, as other posters have pointed out, he is expected to produce better numbers because he has in the past.
If you can get Rollins for cheap, go for it.
