Andrelton Simmons (ankle, Achilles) went 3-for-4 in his return to action Friday against the Mets.

He had a pair of singles and a double, giving him his first three-hit game since May 19. Simmons left Wednesday's game after tweaking his ankle/Achilles, but it's apparently not a major concern.

Andrelton Simmons left Wednesday's game after tweaking his ankle and Achilles.

Simmons said the injury wasn't bad, and he exited the clubhouse without a noticeable limp. He's day-to-day, but it doesn't sound like something that will keep him out of the lineup long, if at all.

Andrelton Simmons left Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent ankle injury.

The Braves haven't said a reason for his departure, but Atlanta Journal-Constitution beat writer David O'Brien said it appeared Simmons aggravated a previous ankle injury running from first to second base in the first inning. Phil Gosselin replaced Simmons at shortstop, and the Braves should update his situation shortly.

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 in a losing effort against the Rangers on Friday.

On a night where the Braves could get very little done against Derek Holland and company, Simmons was the only member of the team to pick up multiple hits. He is in the midst of a highly disappointing season, slashing a mere .242/.286/.331 with seven homers and 45 RBI in his 133 games.

Andrelton Simmons went 0-for-4 on Monday, leaving him 3-for-27 this month.

Simmons hit .289/.298/.489 with three homers through the first month of the season. Since then, he's come in at .228/.280/.294 with four homers in 394 at-bats. Obviously, he still has his outrageous glove working in his favor, but as a fantasy shortstop, he's been quite the disappointment.

Andrelton Simmons is not in the Braves' lineup Sunday.

Simmons has dealt with ankle and hip ailments recently, but he says he's feeling fine. With Monday's off day, he'll get two days of rest in a row. Phil Gosselin is filling in at shortstop Sunday.

Andrelton Simmons slugged his seventh home run of the season, his only hit in five at-bats, as the Braves easily handled the Reds in an 8-0 victory on Thursday.

Simmons ended a scoreless tie in the top of the second with a no-doubt solo home run to left field off of David Holmberg. The shortstop hasn't shown as much power at the plate as he did last season, slashing a meager .249/.296/.348 with 43 RBI.

He seems to have been removed as a precaution with the Braves having a big lead, as the club is hopeful Simmons can play Wednesday. Simmons had a hit and scored two runs before exiting.

Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is in the Braves' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Simmons sat out six straight games due to the injury, but he was back in the lineup batting seventh on Wednesday. The Braves deemed the injury minor from the outset, so it's not likely something that will continue to affect him going forward.
