Andrelton Simmons delivered a two-run single in Friday's win over the Phillies.
Simmons is now hitting .365 (19-for-52) over 13 games this month. The power and speed haven't been there this year, but the 24-year-old is more interesting in fantasy leagues now that he's the Braves' No. 2 hitter. Jul 18 - 11:30 PM

Andrelton Simmons registered his fifth straight two-hit game on Sunday, finishing 2-for-4 in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

Simmons wasn't able to score in his fifth consecutive game, as Wade Miley held the Braves to one run in the game. Still, with his multi-hit game streak he's raised his overall line to .265/.303/.368. He owns a seven-game hitting streak heading into Monday's game.
Jul 6 - 4:37 PM

Andrelton Simmons was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Simmons now has three straight two-hit games under his belt. Still, the defensive whiz has mostly been a disappointment for fantasy owners so far this season. He would need 12 homers the rest of the way to match last season's total and he's currently on pace to fall short of the 59 RBI he had last year.

Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Simmons hasn't played since leaving Tuesday's game with right ankle inflammation, but he reported improvement Thursday and will try to give it a go. The 24-year-old is batting .266/.286/.407 with four home runs and 13 RBI over 49 games this season.

Andrelton Simmons admitted that the right ankle injury that forced him from Tuesday's game is something that's bothered him off and on for a few weeks.

"It started nagging me a little bit during the inning," Simmons said. "Then it wouldn’t go away. I tried playing on but just didn’t feel like I was going to help my team. I was going to hurt them more if I stayed in there." The good news is that it's not considered a big deal, and Simmons hopes to be back in there as soon as Wednesday. "Hopefully (I’m) ready to go tomorrow," Simmons said after Tuesday night’s game. "It’s not like a nine out of 10 pain. It’s not a terrible pain. It’s just a nagging thing, so hopefully it stops nagging."

Andrelton Simmons is day-to-day after being diagnosed with right ankle inflammation.

It's not clear how Simmons suffered the injury, but it doesn't sound like something to worry about. The Braves will likely give their star shortstop at least a day or two off just to be safe.
May 27 - 10:49 PM

Andrelton Simmons left Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with an apparent injury.

There's no word on what happened to the talented young shortstop, but he was replaced in the field in the top of the eighth inning. The Braves should update Simmons' status shortly.

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with a home run against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Simmons hit a solo home run off Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo in the third inning to open the scoring, and he also had a single in the game. It was the shortstop's third multi-hit game in his last four starts. The onslaught has raised his season line to .285/.304/.450.
May 20 - 10:08 PM

Andrelton Simmons had a nice day at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals, going 3-for-3 with a double.

The Braves entire offense managed just six hits on the day, with Simmons accounting for half of that total, and the only one of the extra-base variety. With the strong effort, he's now hitting .275/.297/.435 on the year.
May 17 - 4:53 PM

Andrelton Simmons is not in the Braves starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

It appears to be nothing more than a routine day of rest for the young shortstop. Tyler Pastornicky will draw the start in his place and hit ninth for the Braves on Saturday.
May 10 - 2:50 PM

Andrelton Simmons is not in the Braves' lineup Sunday due to a personal reason.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez didn't elaborate, but Simmons is with the club and is expected to be available off the bench. He'll be back in the lineup on Monday. Ramiro Pena is at shortstop Sunday.
May 4 - 11:27 AM

Andrelton Simmons (wrist) remained out of the Braves' lineup Friday.

It's the second straight contest he's missed after jamming his right wrist during Wednesday's game. The good news is that Simmons took swings in the batting cage before the game and thinks he'll be available to pinch-hit. He's aiming to return to the lineup on Saturday. Ramiro Pena is filling in again at shortstop.
Apr 11 - 3:24 PM

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated Thursday that Andrelton Simmons (wrist) is unlikely to play on Friday.

Gonzalez said that Friday is a possibility but hinted that there's a better chance of the shortstop returning on Saturday or Sunday. The skipper added that Simmons' wrist is more of an issue while swinging than it is while throwing. Ramiro Pena is handling shortstop for the Braves while Simmons is out.
Apr 10 - 11:38 PM

Andrelton Simmons was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Mets due to a jammed right wrist.

Simmons jammed his wrist when he stumbled across home plate on Wednesday night. Consider him day-to-day for now. Ramiro Pena will start in his place and hit eighth.
Apr 10 - 5:48 PM

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 and hit his first spring homer Saturday against the Red Sox.

Simmons went hitless in five straight games earlier this month, but he's rebounded with four hits in 10 at-bats in his last three games, pushing his average back up to .275.
