Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Athletics on Sunday.

Simmons came through with a big two-run single in the seventh inning, chopping a hit past A's third baseman Matt Chapman to plate the pair. Simmons now has at least one hit in each of the team's first four games, going 7-for-16 with four RBI and two runs scored. After a career year in 2017, the 28-year-old is looking to build on his newfound offensive skills this season.
Apr 1 - 9:48 PM

Andrelton Simmons collected a pair of singles across three at-bats in Friday's 2-1 win in Oakland.

Simmons has hit safely in each of his first two regular-season games, as the strained left shoulder he suffered in the middle of March appears to be in the rear-view mirror. Simmons remains a fringe mixed-league fantasy middle infielder, especially since the shortstop position is so very deep with more power to be had elsewhere.
Mar 31 - 1:52 AM

Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI in Monday's Cactus League victory over the Mariners.

Fresh off of his breakout 2017 season offensively, Simmons has struggled this spring hitting just .240 with no homers and no stolen bases. He's a fringe mixed league middle infielder, but expecting a repeat of his 2017 campaign seems unlikely.
Mar 20 - 1:01 AM

Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored Friday versus the Rockies.

Simmons suffered a left shoulder strain last Thursday, but he only ended up missing a week of action. The defensive whiz had a nice year with the bat in 2017, slugging 14 home runs while posting career-bests with a .752 OPS, 69 RBI, 19 stolen bases, and 77 runs scored. Shortstop is deeper these days than it used to be, but Simmons should do enough to be relevant in deeper mixed formats.
Mar 16 - 8:34 PM

Andrelton Simmons (shoulder) is back in the Angels' Cactus League lineup on Thursday.

Simmons missed a week of action with a minor left shoulder strain. The 28-year-old shortstop should be 100 percent for the start of the 2018 regular season. He put up a career-best .752 OPS with 14 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 158 games last year with the Angels.
Mar 15 - 10:24 AM

Andrelton Simmons (shoulder) is expected to return to Cactus League action on Thursday.

Simmons has been sidelined for a week because of a left shoulder strain. The three-time Gold Glove winner should be ready for the start of the 2018 regular season and carries a good amount of fantasy value after posting a career-high .752 OPS with 14 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 158 games last year.
Mar 14 - 1:06 PM

Andrelton Simmons' MRI confirmed a left shoulder strain.

The Angels are calling him day-to-day. Simmons suffered the injury in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Athletics. Barring setbacks, the three-time Gold Glove winner should be ready well in advance of Opening Day.
Mar 9 - 12:01 AM

Andrelton Simmons left Thursday's Cactus League game against the Athletics with a strained left shoulder.

He'll undergo an MRI later tonight, though manager Mike Scioscia said it's just precautionary. Simmons set career-highs in hits (164), RBI (69), doubles (38), runs scored (77) and steals (19) last year while providing his usual stellar glove work at shortstop. Zack Cozart, who is slated to start at third base, could see reps at shortstop if Simmons' absence stretches into the regular season.
Mar 8 - 6:04 PM

Andrelton Simmons went hitless in a third straight game Friday against the Mariners.

Simmons seemed very worthy of MVP consideration when his OPS was in the .810-.820 range last month. However, he's in a 16-for-93 slump in his last 23 games, dropping his OPS to .767 now. He needs to heat back up to have any kind of shot.

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to help the Angels edge the Astros 7-6 on Saturday.

The Angels scored the last six runs of the game to pull this one out. Simmons was in a 5-for-45 slump over 12 games coming into this one. To go along with his 14th homer, he collected his 31st double tonight. That's already a new career high in doubles, and he has a good shot of surpassing his total of 17 homers from 2013.

Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-2 with two walks and stolen base Monday versus the Rangers.

Simmons just keeps on keeping on. He now has 13 homers and 18 steals to go along with a strong .293/.348/.451 batting line. Throw in his excellent defense at shortstop and you have someone with a sneaky case for AL MVP consideration.
Tue, Aug 22, 2017 02:03:00 AM

Andrelton Simmons hit his 13th home run of the year in the Angels' 5-4 win over the Orioles on Sunday.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the sixth inning. Simmons also made a couple of tremendous defensive plays at shortstop in the afternoon victory at Camden Yards. The 27-year-old is slashing .292/.345/.451 through 122 games this season and will probably get a number of down-ballot MVP votes if he can finish strong.
Sun, Aug 20, 2017 05:28:00 PM

Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Simmons took James Paxton deep for a two-run dinger in the fourth inning, his 12 homer of the season. That shot boosted his RBI total to 52 on the year. In addition, the shortstop is working to a respectable .304/.357/.461 triple-slash over the course of 114 games played. He has picked up hits in eight of his last 10 games.
Fri, Aug 11, 2017 02:00:00 AM

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

Simmons put the Angels on the board with a solo shot in the fourth inning off Rick Porcello after the Sox and Halos traded zeroes over the first three frames. The home run was Simmons' 11th of the season. He has now homered in back-to-back games after going three weeks without a long ball and sports a respectable .292/.340/.450 triple-slash for the season as a whole.
