SAN FRANCISCO - The San Francisco Giants have informed veteran infielder Jimmy Rollins he won't make the team out of spring training and are waiting to hear back from him or his representatives about what options might be next.

Rollins wasn't at AT&T Park on Thursday night for an exhibition game against the Oakland Athletics. Giants general manager Bobby Evans says he has spoken to Rollins about his status with the club. The 2007 NL MVP signed a minor-league deal in December and was a long shot to make the 25-man roster.

The 38-year-old Rollins grew up in the Bay Area and hoped to play near home for the first time after 17 seasons in the majors. But he was batting .119 (5-for-42) with eight strikeouts in 17 Cactus League games.
