Manager Ryne Sandberg said a change in approach has been the key to Rollins' recent success at the plate, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. "I've noticed him getting on base. I've noticed an increase in walks. I've noticed him using the middle of the diamond, getting more of his hits up the middle and opposite field," Sandberg said. "I see a different mindset as far as having a line drive, use-the-whole-field stroke."
Rollins is hitting .289/.413/.400 over his last 26 games. He has walked 19 times during that span after having walked only 39 times over the first 124 games of the season.
