      Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Won't be ready for road trip

      The Los Angeles Angels aren't expected to activate Andrelton Simmons (ankle) from the 10-day injured list at any point during their seven-game road trip this week, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.Though Simmons isn't ready to rejoin the big club, he's slated to continue taking grounders and batting practice this week. The shortstop, who is tending to a sprained ankle and a bone bruise, might then be cleared for simulated-game action or a minor-league rehab assignment if he responds well to those workouts. David Fletcher and Wilfredo Tovar have been seeing the majority of the action at shortstop for the Angels since Simmons was placed on the IL on Aug. 4.

      Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Eyeing imminent return

      Andrelton Simmons hopes to return to baseball activities in "a couple more days," J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.Simmons has missed nine straight games with a sprained left ankle but is feeling better and doesn't believe he will be out much longer. The Los Angeles Angels may opt for a conservative recovery timeline, however, since this is the second time Simmons has dealt with the same injury. The 29-year-old is slashing .274/.315/.382 with five home runs and nine stolen bases in 74 games this season.

      Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Dealing with ankle aggravation

      Manager Brad Ausmus said he expects Andrelton Simmons to miss "at least a couple of weeks" after the shortstop was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a bone bruise and left ankle sprain, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.As feared, Simmons is dealing with the same injury that kept him on the shelf for five weeks earlier this season, though this latest setback isn't believed to be quite as severe. Specifically, Ausmus noted that Simmons' injury is to the inside of his ankle rather than the outside of the ankle like the prior issue had been. The Los Angeles Angels will likely bar Simmons from resuming baseball activities through mid-August before reassessing his health and perhaps pinpointing a target date for his return from the IL. In the meantime, David Fletcher and Luis Rengifo are likely to draw most of the action at shortstop.

      Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Lands on 10-day IL

      The Los Angeles Angels placed Andrelton Simmons (foot) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.After he was scratched from the lineup ahead of Saturday's 7-2 loss with a sore left foot, Simmons was sent in for an MRI. While the results of Simmons' tests haven't been made public, the Angels evidently felt the injury was significant enough to warrant at least a week-and-a-half-long shutdown. Simmons, who previously missed multiple weeks earlier this season with a severe sprain on his left ankle, will likely cede duties at shortstop to either David Fletcher or Luis Rengifo while he recovers from his latest setback on the health front.
