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

Date:

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.
Mar 31 - 5:21 PM

Andrelton Simmons has missed the last two games with back tightness.

He could sit out another day or two but is expected to be fine. Simmons has just three hits in 16 at-bats this spring, as he was away for a while to play for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic.
Mar 27 - 7:28 PM

Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

His single with two outs in the fifth inning broke up a developing bid for a perfect game by Collin McHugh. The Angels managed only four hits on the night. Simmons is batting .281/.324/.366 with four home runs and 44 RBI. His 10 stolen bases help make up for some of his weakness with the bat. With the shortstop position being very strong and deep this year it renders Simmons nothing more than an emergency injury replacement in fantasy leagues.

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. The power is nice to see given that Simmons has been dealing with a right hand contusion this week, one which kept him from playing in any of the previous three games. 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.
Fri, Sep 16, 2016 01:29:00 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 was scratched from Monday's game against the Mariners with a right hand contusion.

Consider him day-to-day. Cliff Pennington will start in his place at shortstop.
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 09:27:00 PM

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.
Wed, Sep 7, 2016 12:46:00 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.
