The Brewers are hearing that free-agent shortstop Jimmy Rollins is nearing an agreement to return to Philadelphia, so it sounds like he's out as a possible option at shortstop.

Rollins was the top shortstop remaining on the market, so it was natural that the Brewers would have interest in him. But they expected all along that it would be difficult to pry him away from the Phillies.

FoxSports' Ken Rosenthal is reporting that no deal is imminent between the Phillies and Rollins, but the Brewers certainly have the impression that they're going to work something out.
