Jimmy Rollins is set to make his managerial debut during MLB All-Star Weekend
Jimmy Rollins will make his managerial debut in Major League Baseball this season during the 2022 MLB All-Star Futures game.
The MLB Futures Game is a part of the All-Star Weekend Festivities and all things considered, should include Bryson Stott for the National League team.
Jimmy Rollins – Manager of the Future?
It will be Rollins first “real” experience managing but I doubt it will be his last. The Phillies are obviously riding with Rob Thomson as their interim manager and so far, that has worked out perfectly as the Fightins’ have ripped off six straight wins, five of which came under Thomson.
Could Jimmy be the next Phillies manager? Who knows. There’s plenty of baseball left to be played and the Phillies have turned a corner after a brutal start to the 2022 season.
Rollins, now 43-years old, was a three-time All-Star during a 17-season MLB career. He spent 15 seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies before closing out his career with the Dodgers in 2015 and the White Sox in 2016.
Back in March, Jimmy Rollins was given a new role in The Phillies organization as the special advisor to the president of baseball operations. The role includes assisting “in an on-field capacity and advising the front office with baseball operations decisions.”
Rollins has worked within the Phillies organization since 2019 as a special advisor doing a variety of jobs on the baseball and business side of things within the organization, along with Phillies’ TV broadcasts for a select number of games with NBC Sports Philadelphia.
