Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.
Simmons came through for a two-run shot off J.A. Happ in the seventh inning.

For the season, the 27-year-old shortstop is slashing .288/.326/.380 with four homers, 38 RBI and seven steals over 392 at-bats. Sep 16 - 1:29 AM

A CT scan taken Tuesday on the right hand of Andrelton Simmons showed no major damage.

Simmons was scratched from the Angels' lineup Monday with a right hand contusion and remains sidelined Tuesday night, but it doesn't sound like this is anything serious. The rangy Angels shortstop is sitting on a .286/.325/.371 batting line with just three home runs and 36 RBI through 107 games this season.

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the A's.

Simmons picked up an RBI double against Zach Neal in the fourth inning. That would stand as the Angels' only extra-base hit of the game. For the season, the 27-year-old shortstop is hitting .283/.321/.349 with one homer and 38 RBI across 375 at-bats.
Sep 7 - 12:46 AM

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored on Wednesday versus the Reds.

He also walked. He singled and stole second in the first inning but was left stranded. In the sixth inning he doubled and scored the deciding run of the game. The defensive wizard does not offer much with his bat. He has an empty .281 batting average with one home run and 29 RBI after 98 games.

Andrelton Simmons (personal) finished 1-for-5 in his return to the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

Andrelton Simmons was scratched from the Angels' lineup Tuesday due to a personal matter.

There aren't any details available at the moment. It was originally believed to be a rib cage injury for Simmons, who took a Felix Hernandez pitch to the side on Monday. His status is uncertain for Wednesday.

Andrelton Simmons was scratched from the Angels' lineup Tuesday with rib cage discomfort.

Simmons took a Felix Hernandez pitch to the ribs on Monday night and is apparently still dealing with some discomfort. Cliff Pennington will start at shortstop and bat seventh Tuesday versus the Mariners.
Aug 16 - 8:33 PM

Andrelton Simmons finished 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Athletics.

Simmons had a run-scoring single in the third inning and later came around to score on Ji-Man Choi's second home run of the game. With Mike Trout getting a rest, Simmons actually batted cleanup for the Angels in the contest, the first time he'd done so this season. It speaks to both the kind of year Simmons is having at the dish and the Angels' lack of better options, as the 26-year-old is hitting .290/.319/.368 after Thursday's game.
Aug 4 - 11:55 PM

Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-5 with a double, triple, three RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Rays.

Simmons had an RBI single in the second inning and a two-run double in the sixth, and his triple in the ninth gave him an outside shot at a cycle, but it wasn't meant to be. Still, it was a good night for the shortstop, who is batting .523 in five July games thus far. He's in there for his defense, so any added contributions at the plate are a plus for the Angels. Simmons is batting .261/.285/.348 in 50 games.
Jul 5 - 10:42 PM

Angels activated SS Andrelton Simmons from the 15-day disabled list.

Simmons initially landed on the disabled list with a torn ligament in his left thumb on May 10. Prior to the injury, he was slashing just .219/.246/.281 with one homer and eight RBI over 114 at-bats. For what it is worth, the 26-year-old shortstop hit .333 and drove in five runs during his six-game rehab assignment. In a corresponding move, the Angels designated Brendan Ryan for assignment.

The Angels are expected to activate Andrelton Simmons (thumb) from the disabled list on Wednesday.

He's already on his way to Angel Stadium to be evaluated. Simmons hit .333 with five RBI during his six-game rehab assignment. He missed a little over a month with a torn ligament in his left thumb, a much faster recovery than his original 6-8 week timetable. Gregorio Petit got most of the reps at shortstop during his absence.
Jun 14 - 8:44 PM

Andrelton Simmons (thumb) could be activated from the disabled list this week.

Simmons is batting .350 (7-for-20) with two doubles and five RBI over five games during his minor league rehab assignment and Scioscia said that he "made a lot of progress" over the weekend. He could be activated by the end of the team's series against the Twins this week. The 26-year-old has been sidelined since May 8 with a UCL tear in his left thumb.
Jun 13 - 8:05 PM

Andrelton Simmons (thumb) is moving his rehab assignment from High-A Inland Empire to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Simmons will join the team Thursday night in Fresno. He contributed two hits in six at-bats during his short time with Inland Empire. Simmons was expected to miss 6-8 weeks after undergoing thumb surgery but it's only been a month and he's almost ready to return. He could be back with the Angels as early as Saturday.
Jun 9 - 4:58 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said that there is a "possibility" Andrelton Simmons (thumb) could rejoin the team this weekend.

Simmons will take part in additional rehab games with High-A Inland Empire on Thursday and Friday. Scioscia isn't committing to Simmons' return against the Indians this weekend, but the 26-year-old shortstop is clearly just about back to 100%. A UCL tear in his left thumb sidelined him in early May and he promptly shredded the initial 6-8 timetable.
