Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.
His 13 steals are already a career high and we are not halfway into the season yet. He is batting .280/.338/.409 with seven home runs, 34 runs scored and 31 RBI. The 27-year-old defensive wizard has turned himself into a nice fantasy shortstop following several years of mediocrity with the bat. Jun 21 - 10:35 PM

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and two steals in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Simmons picked up an RBI single against Jason Vargas in the first inning. He also had a double in the contest. With the two steals, the shortstop is up to 10 on the season -- matching his total from 2016. He is working to a .278/.338/.407 batting line with seven homers, 31 RBI and 32 runs scored in 270 at-bats.

Andrelton Simmons hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh to propel the Angels to a 7-5 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Simmons has seven homers in 68 games this year after totaling eight in 271 games the previous two years. Also, his .340 OBP is about 30 points better than his career average. If he keeps this up, he could deserve bottom-of-the-ballot consideration in the AL MVP race at the end of the year. Still, it doesn't seem likely that he'll remain quite this effective offensively.

Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's shutout loss to the Tigers.

He was the only member of his team to reach base twice on a night when they could manage just three base hits. Known as a defensive wizard, Simmons is finally having a useful season at the dish as well. He has a .269 batting average with six home runs, 23 runs, 23 RBI and seven stolen bases.
Jun 7 - 10:58 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after Sunday's game that Andrelton Simmons' knee is sore, but that they don't believe the injury to be anything serious.

Simmons' knee collided with the knee of Eduardo Escobar during a stolen base attempt during Sunday's game. Both players were able to walk it off and remain in for the duration of the game. He's considered day-to-day.
Jun 5 - 1:02 AM

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

Simmons plated a run with a ground out and later hit a ground-rule RBI double to pad the Angels' lead. He's now got a nine-game hitting streak going, during which he's 17-for-37 with seven multi-hit games. The torrid stretch has the normally defense-first shortstop's line up to .283/.341/.398 overall.
May 27 - 9:44 PM

Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a walk against the Rays on Tuesday.

Simmons struggled in the first half of May, but he is 10-for-20 with five extra-base hits in his last five games. At this rate, he'll probably be the Angels' cleanup hitter tomorrow.
May 23 - 10:24 PM

Andrelton Simmons finished 2-for-4 with a walk in Saturday's game at N.Y. Mets.

Simmons is heating up at the dish, posting multi-hit games in four of the past five outings. He has raised his average from .232 to .251 just since May 14. It's great news after he slumped so hard to kick off the month. Simmons remains nothing more than a useful middle infielder option in AL-only play for his solid average, handful of steals and occasional RBI.
May 21 - 12:29 AM

Andrelton Simmons (hand) is in the Angels' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Simmons was hit on the right thumb by a pitch Monday, but X-rays turned up negative. He is starting at shortstop and batting fifth Tuesday versus Athletics right-hander Jharel Cotton.
May 9 - 6:38 PM

X-rays on Andrelton Simmons' right thumb and left hand came back negative.

Simmons was hit on the right thumb by a pitch Monday and the ball apparently deflected and hit his left hand, as well, but he escaped the incident without any fractures. The Angels are considering him day-to-day.
May 8 - 11:19 PM

Andrelton Simmons was lifted from Monday's game against the Athletics after being hit on the right hand by a pitch.

Simmons initially remained in the game after being drilled by a Kendall Graveman offering in the top of the first inning, but he was removed when the Angels took the field in the bottom of the second. He's surely headed for X-rays, and an update on the shortstop should be available later Monday.
May 8 - 10:44 PM

Andrelton Simmons finished 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's win against the Blue Jays.

Simmons entered the game with a total of three RBI over his first 17 games so don't get terribly excited over his power potential. He remains nothing more than a useful middle infielder option in AL-only play for his solid average, handful of steals and occasional RBI.
Apr 23 - 2:42 AM

Andrelton Simmons is not in the Angels' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a routine day off. Cameron Maybin is also sitting out, as the Angels have Cliff Pennington at shortstop and Ben Revere in left field.

Andrelton Simmons (back) is back in the Angels' lineup for Saturday's exhibition game against the Dodgers.

Simmons dealt with back tightness earlier this week but the injury never posed a threat to his availability for Opening Day. The 27-year-ol hit .281 with four homers, 44 RBI and 10 steals last season. Outside of AL-only leagues, he doesn't carry much fantasy value.
Apr 1 - 5:53 PM

Andrelton Simmons (back) remained out of the Angels' lineup Friday.

Simmons had been planning to return to action Friday after missing a few days with a tight back. Hopefully this is just the Angels being extra cautious and not any sort of setback. The club should have more on the shortstop's status later Friday.
