The 37-year-old was hitting just .221 with two home runs and eight RBIs in his first season with Chicago. He signed a one-year, $2 million deal with them before the season.
The team has been trying to figure things out, making a number of roster moves in the past week. They have traded for starter James Shields, signed first baseman Justin Mourneau to a deal, and parted ways with pitcher Mat Latos.
The first 14 games were the best for Rollins this season, a stretch where he batted .268 with six extra-base hits. Since then, the former NL MVP and three-time All-Star has batted just .194 since April 25th.
The team also placed outfielder Austin Jackson on the disabled list with turf toe, which lead to them calling up top prospect Tim Anderson from the minors. Anderson had a .304 average with four home runs and 20 RBIs in 55 games in Triple-A. He may take over at the shortstop position for Rollins, depending on how the 22-year-old performs in the majors.
