Jimmy Rollins in the Orange and Black

The SF Giants site says he's signed a minor league deal 

Here's the story by Chris Haft, who's usually right  --

SAN FRANCISCO -- Hoping to add infield depth, the Giants agreed to a Minor League deal with Jimmy Rollins, the highly accomplished shortstop who's striving to extend his big league career to an 18th season.
Sources confirmed the Giants' accord with Rollins, who will compete with Kelby Tomlinson, Ehire Adrianza and Conor Gillaspie, among others, for a reserve infield spot. This could require some adjustment from Rollins, 38. Except for one-third of an inning at second base in 2002, Rollins has played exclusively shortstop -- which, on San Francisco's roster, belongs to two-time Gold Glove Award winner Brandon Crawford.
Since Rollins had not yet officially signed his contract, Giants general manager Bobby Evans declined to comment on the move.
