The winter meetings have concluded.

A number of big-name free agents have signed contracts.

Openings for shortstops have dwindled.

And yet, Jimmy Rollins remains out there on the free-agent market.

Most observers of the contract drama that has unfolded between Rollins and the Phillies believe it will be resolved with Rollins agreeing to a deal this week.

Phils general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. hopes that is true.

"We're still working on it," he said Monday morning. "We're hoping to have a resolution soon."

Amaro continues to negotiate with Rollins' agent, Dan Lozano.

"We talked over the weekend," he said. "We hope to talk again today."
