Jimmy Rollins being shopped

MLBTR has an item stating that the Phillies would be willing to trade Jimmy Rollins. In the article, it's stated:
"Rollins, 35, struggled at the plate in 2013, batting .252/.318/.348..."
Meanwhile our resident starter pleased some fans with his progress, posting .221/.281/.330.
I don't particularly advocate trading for Rollins, as I assume the Phils want prospects the Twins won't want to part with and the Twins won't want to invest $11M a year in an aging player. I'm just mindful that one team's "struggled" can be better on offense than another team's "incumbent shortstop".
