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. Sat, Sep 9, 2017 01:43:00 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Andrelton Simmons finished 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's win against the Red Sox.

Simmons has raised his average seven points in the month of July, thanks mostly due to five multi-hit games, including a trio of three-hit performances. Simmons won't give you a lot of pop, but he hits for a decent average and will also swipe an occasional bag.

Andrelton Simmons is not in the Angels' lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.

There's no injury to report here as Simmons is getting a plan day off. He'll be spelled by Cliff Pennington at shortstop. Simmons must be delighted to avoid tonight's starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who he is 1-for-6 against in his career.

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Wednesday as the Angels edged the Dodgers 3-2.

The Angels won the game in the bottom of the ninth after Ben Revere reached on an error, advanced to second on a wild pitch and came around to score on a wild pitch/strikeout in which Yasmani Grandal's throw to first sailed into right field. That's how one might expect a 27-52 team to lose, not a 52-27 team like the Dodgers, but you just never know with baseball. Simmons' homer off Ryu would have been the decisive blow tonight if Grandal hadn't homered with two outs and two strikes in the top of the ninth to tie the game. It was Simmons' eighth homer in 81 games this year. That matches his total in 271 games from 2015 and 2016.

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.

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.
Sun, Jun 18, 2017 07:26:00 PM

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.
Thu, Jun 15, 2017 02:04:00 AM

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.
