He could take the spot of Hannahan, who could then get dealt to a team with a corner IF Spring Training injury.
If you limit his time, Rolen's a valuable guy. As a sub/ PH, his OPS is well over 1.300.
Don't quite get replacing Xavier Paul. Paul may only be the 5th OFer, but he's a key LH pinch hit bat. Something the righthanded hitting Frazier and Rolen can't contribute.
