PHILLIES LEGEND JIMMY ROLLINS SHIPPED TO MINORS BY WHITE SOX

By Sam Bush

The reeling Chicago White Sox have designated veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins for assignment and promoted top prospect Tim Anderson from the minors.

The White Sox, who have lost 12 of their last 15 games, announced the moves today before their game against the Kansas City Royals.

Ex-Phillies great Rollins, 37, batted .221 with two home runs and eight RBIs in 41 games with the White Sox this season. The three-time All-Star and 2007 National League MVP signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the White Sox prior to this season.

Rollins got off to a solid start this season, batting .268 with six extra-base hits in his first 14 games. But he has struggled mightily since then, batting just .194 since April 25.
