Rollins agrees to three-year deal with Phillies

Two sources confirmed an ESPN.com report Saturday that Jimmy Rollins agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract with the Phillies, along with a vesting option for a fourth season that will give him the opportunity to finish his career in Philadelphia.

“I see you all know by now,” Rollins said on his Twitter account @JimmyRollins11. “Gotta deal with me for 3 (4) more years!”

Rollins entered the offseason saying he wanted a five-year contract or a four-year deal with a player option for a fifth season. But the market never materialized as the Milwaukee Brewers signed Alex Gonzalez and the St. Louis Cardinals signed Rafael Furcal.
