Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Out of Sunday's lineup
Simmons is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
Simmons started at second base Saturday and went 2-for-4, but he'll return to the bench Sunday. Jonathan Villar is picking up the start at second, while Nico Hoerner will cover shortstop. Simmons is mostly a reserve infielder at this point, which keeps his fantasy value fairly low, as does his .413 OPS for the season.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Starting again Friday
Simmons is starting at second base and batting ninth in Friday's game against Atlanta.
The veteran infielder will make his second consecutive start at second base, as the Cubs are missing Nick Madrigal (groin) at the moment. Simmons hasn't done much with the bat this year, registering just a .167/.182/.167 slash line, so he probably can be avoided in most leagues.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: May be stuck in utility role
Simmons is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.
Now on the bench for the fifth time in seven games, Simmons appears to have shifted into a utility role following the recent returns of Nico Hoerner and Nick Madrigal from the injured list. Simmons will still spell Hoerner and Madrigal occasionally, but he's unlikely to see consistent enough playing time to make an impact even in deeper mixed leagues.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Riding pine in matinee
Simmons isn't in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.
Simmons went 0-for-4 during Friday's blowout loss to St. Louis, and he'll be on the bench for the third time in the last four games. Nick Madrigal is starting at the keystone and batting ninth.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: Not in Thursday's lineup
Simmons is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
Simmons is 2-for-16 in his past seven appearances and will take a seat for the second straight game. Nick Madrigal will man the keystone in his place Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Andrelton Simmons: On bench Wednesday
Simmons isn't starting Wednesday against the Brewers.
Simmons started in the last two games and went 1-for-5 with a run, an RBI and three strikeouts. Nick Madrigal will start at the keystone and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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....
