Rolen off to hot second-half start
CINCINNATI -- Injuries and offensive struggles limited Scott Rolen's production in the first half, but his second half has started well. Through the first four games, all with at least one hit, Rolen was 6-for-14 (.429). He came in batting .203 for the season.

The 37-year-old Rolen is in the final year of his contract and hasn't said if he plans to continue playing next season. The Reds haven't made any overtures, yet, about whether Rolen is in their future plans.

"A lot of that decision depends on how Scott finishes and how Scott stays healthy and if he still wants to play and enjoys playing," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "I've had talks with him [and said] 'Finish strong and enjoy every day and every moment because when indeed it's over, it's over.' I know right now he has a lot of mileage left in him."
