3 plate appearances for the Dodgers last season, but did perform well against lefties, slashing .297/.339/.423. Saladino on the other hand, played in 68 games as a rookie this past season, batting .225/.267/.335 with an even worse split against southpaws (.207/.288/.362). The two may be headed for a time-share at shortstop. It will be Rollins' first stint in the American League after 16 seasons in the NL with the Phillies and Dodgers.
