After a week’s worth of “maybe” and “why haven’t they announced anything” and “Matt Kemp has old-man hips,” the trade between the Dodgers and Phillies for Jimmy Rollins is officially official.

As previously reported, the Phillies will send Rollins to L.A. and will receive minor league pitchers Zach Eflin and Tom Windle in return. The Phillies released a statement on the trade, and I think Chase Utley has something in his eye:

“The Dodgers are very lucky to acquire a player like Jimmy. I’ve said it time and time again that Jimmy makes everyone around him better. The team will miss his leadership on the field and his infectious smile, but most of all, I will miss our pre-game handshake.”

The trade will formally be announced in a press conference later today.
