  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Moving to second base

    Simmons will cede the starting shortstop job to Nico Hoerner going forward, with most of his playing time projected to come at second base, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

    The motivation for this move is partly for the Cubs to evaluate Hoerner over a long stretch at shortstop before potentially signing a high-profile free agent shortstop this winter. It is also likely related to the fact that Simmons' shoulder is not 100 percent, and this makes it easier on him from a throwing standpoint. Jonathan Villar and Christopher Morel could also get work at second base, so Simmons probably won't be a true everyday player.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Records three hits in win

    Simmons went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Simmons was productive from the bottom of the order, helping lead the Cubs to an easy 11-4 win. The shortstop is still known more for his defensive ability, and while he's starting to play more regularly after missing some time to begin the year due to a shoulder injury, fantasy managers shouldn't expect too many performances like this. Simmons still has just a .553 OPS for the season, and he finished with a .557 OPS across 131 games with Minnesota in 2021.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Not starting Monday

    Simmons isn't starting Monday against the Reds.

    Simmons started in five of the last seven games and went 3-for-18 with two runs, two RBI, a stolen base, a walk and three strikeouts. Christopher Morel will take over at shortstop and bat ninth.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Out of Friday's lineup

    Simmons is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus Arizona.

    Simmons started three of the past four games after being activated from the injured list at the beginning of the week, going 2-for-10 with a walk, an RBI and a run. Ildemaro Vargas will start at shortstop and bat ninth.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Returns to lineup Saturday

    Simmons is starting at shortstop and batting ninth in Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    After a day off Friday, Simmons will return Saturday as the Cubs shuffle their infield a bit. Ildemaro Vargas shifts from short to second, while Jonathan Villar goes from second to third and Patrick Wisdom slides over to left field. This will be the fourth start in the last six games for Simmons, who is ramping up after missing all of April and half of May with shoulder inflammation.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Starting Wednesday

    Simmons is starting at shortstop and batting ninth in Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

    Simmons will make his second start in four games since his return from the injured list Sunday. Nico Hoerner (ankle) hit the IL himself to make room for Simmons, so there should be plenty of playing time available at shortstop, though it seems the Cubs are being cautious with the veteran as he works his way back from a shoulder injury. Ildemaro Vargas remains on hand to provide depth at the position.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Simmons will sit Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Simmons has now been in the lineup just once in three games since his return from shoulder inflammation. It's likely he's being eased into action to some extent, but it's also possible the Cubs don't see him as quite an everyday player. Ildemaro Vargas starts at shortstop in Simmons' absence.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Activated from injured list

    Simmons (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Simmons has been on the shelf with shoulder inflammation all season but will join the active roster Sunday after a six-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa. The 32-year-old won't immediately start but should take over the everyday role, especially with Nico Hoerner (ankle) moving to the IL in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Begins rehab assignment

    Simmons (shoulder) begins a rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Iowa, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    He will play shortstop Saturday and slot in at designated hitter Sunday. Shoulder inflammation has sidelined him all season, so he will probably get a lengthy rehab assignment.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Throwing again

    Simmons (shoulder) has resumed throwing and taking batting practice at the Cubs' spring training facility in Arizona, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    The Cubs slowed down Simmons' throwing program early last week after his right shoulder was bothering him, but he appears to be in the process of ramping up again. Bastian specifically notes that Simmons was making throws across the diamond Tuesday, a positive sign that he'll soon be ready for full defensive drills. The 32-year-old doesn't provide much value with his bat at this stage of his career, so the Cubs aren't likely to activate Simmons from the 10-day injured list until they're confident he's able to comfortably make throws from the area of the field he'll be covering at shortstop. Since he has yet to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, Simmons is at probably at least a week away from making his 2022 debut.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Hits snag in rehab program

    The Cubs announced Tuesday that Simmons will slow down his throwing progression after he experienced renewed soreness in his right shoulder during recent workouts, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Simmons isn't being shut down entirely, as he'll still be able to do some light throwing and is scheduled to take live batting practice beginning next week. Since Simmons will need to complete a minor-league rehab assignment once he's fully cleared for both hitting and defensive work, he's unlikely to return from 10-day injured list until the middle of May at the earliest.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Takes live BP again

    Simmons (shoulder) participated in live batting practice Wednesday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Simmons resumed facing live pitching Tuesday, and he was able to do so for a second consecutive day Wednesday. Although it's not yet clear when the shortstop will be able to return to game action, he certainly appears to be trending in the right direction. The 32-year-old has been dealing with his shoulder injury for nearly a month, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him require a rehab appearance before he's cleared to rejoin the major-league club.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Set to face live pitching

    Simmons (shoulder) will face live pitching Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Simmons landed on the 10-day injured list Opening Day after failing to appear in any Cactus League games after March 24. The 32-year-old doesn't yet have a clear timetable for his return, but it's encouraging that he's now able to face live hitting. Nico Hoerner has been serving as the Cubs' everyday shortstop in Simmons' absence.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Goes on IL

    The Cubs placed Simmons (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Simmons' move to the IL was fully expected after he didn't play in any Cactus League games after March 24 due to right shoulder inflammation. He has still yet to be cleared for full throwing, so Simmons is seemingly trending toward spending more than the minimum 10 days on the shelf. His absence to begin the season should pave the way for Nico Hoerner to serve as Chicago's everyday shortstop.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Looks bound for IL

    Simmons (shoulder) was limited to light defensive drills Monday and didn't do any throwing during his workout, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Simmons hasn't seen any Cactus League action since March 24 due to his sore right shoulder, and considering that his throwing program since suffering the injury hasn't consisted of anything more than light catch, he looks safe to rule out for Opening Day. Assuming Simmons open the season on the injured list, Nico Hoerner would likely be in line to serve as his primary replacement at shortstop.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Continues throwing work

    Simmons (shoulder) will play catch again Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports, but he still seems in danger of not being ready for Opening Day.

    Simmons played light catch earlier in the week and will continue throwing over the weekend, but there otherwise has been no word that he's ready to return to full action. Until the Cubs provide more details, it's probably wise to expect the shortstop to miss some time to begin the year. In his place, Nico Hoerner and Jonathan Villar could see more playing time.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Playing light catch

    Simmons (shoulder) played light catch Tuesday and will do so again Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Simmons has been dealing with a sore shoulder recently, and there's some concern that the issue will force him to miss Opening Day. However, the team will determine his next steps based on how he responds to playing catch on back-to-back days.

  • Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Might not be ready for Opening Day

    Chicago manager David Ross said Simmons (shoulder) might not be ready to go by Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Ross didn't make it sound like Simmons would miss too much time beyond Opening Day if he's not ready to go, but the Cubs may still need to cover for him at least on a temporary basis. Nico Hoerner would likely be next up at shortstop, though recent addition Jonathan Villar could also be in the mix.
