Jimmy Rollins is healthy and wants to play.

But the veteran shortstop is not in the Phillies’ lineup for a third straight day Thursday.

This isn’t a relatively new manager giving an entrenched veteran a little mid-spring breather.

This is Ryne Sandberg benching Jimmy Rollins.

And Rollins knows it.

“Obviously he’s upset about something,” Rollins said before drills Thursday morning. “When he’s ready, he’ll let me know.”

Rollins said he hadn’t spoken to Sandberg in a couple of days.

Rollins was initially supposed to travel to Lake Buena Vista for a game against the Braves on Tuesday, but he was pulled from the lineup that morning. He learned that he was out of the lineup in a morning phone call from someone in the clubhouse. Rollins would not say who called him.

Rollins was not on the travel list to Sarasota on Wednesday. Freddie Galvis got the start at shortstop. After that game, Sandberg praised Galvis for his energy and the positive influence he has on those around him.
