Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Mixed results in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons posted a .174/.269/.261 slash line in Cactus League play. However, he did not strike out in 23 at-bats and recorded a pair of stolen bases.

Spring training stats rarely matter for big-league veterans, so take the batting average with a grain of salt. The good news is that Simmons appeared healthy and spry this spring as he was one of a trio of Angels to tally two steals. After an injury-plagued 2019 campaign, Simmons could prove to be a value pick in fantasy drafts due to his ability to hit for average and rack up double-digit stolen bases.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Yet to talk contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons and the Angels have not yet discussed a contract extension, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

According to Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times, the organization has had internal discussions about extending Simmons but has yet to broach the topic with the player or his agent. The 30-year-old missed 59 games due to an ankle injury last season but still managed to reach double-digit stolen bases for the fourth straight campaign. His base-running ability combined with solid contact skills make Simmons a fringe option in mixed fantasy leagues.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

Simmons touched up Justin Verlander with a 402-foot shot to center field in the fourth inning. The long ball was his first in over a month and just his third since the All-Star break. Simmons reached double-digits in homers the past two seasons but is unlikely to repeat the feat in an injury-plagued 2019. He is slashing .263/.307/.362 with seven home runs, 39 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 102 games.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Athletics.

Simmons has struggled to get things going in September, slashing .229/.260/.257 with two doubles and a stolen base in 18 games. As such, he'll head to the bench Tuesday as David Fletcher picks up a start at shortstop in his place.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons is not in the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

Simmons sits for the first time in over two weeks. He owns a poor .178/.260/.244 slash line since returning from an ankle injury in late August. David Fletcher slides to shortstop in his absence, with Matt Thaiss starting at third base.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Reaches double-digit steals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base Tuesday in the Angels' 7-5 loss to the Athletics.

The steal was Simmons' 10th of the season but first since July 25, with a sprained ankle costing him some time in between. Considering the injury was an aggravation of the issue that previously robbed him of a month earlier in the summer, Simmons may choose to scale back his aggressiveness on the bases in September, especially with the 65-74 Angels well removed from contention.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Simmons produced the first run of the game for the Angels with a shot to left field in the second inning. He is just 1-for-7 in two games since returning from the injured list and is slashing .271/.313/.386 with six homers, 30 RBI and nine steals overall this season.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Returns to bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.

The four-time Gold Glove shortstop returned to the lineup Friday after missing 19 games due to a bone bruise and sprained ankle. Simmons' playing time will increase slowly as manager Brad Ausmus is expected to be cautious following the veteran's return. David Fletcher will slide over to shortstop as Luis Rengifo will start at shortstop and hit seventh against right-hander Gerrit Cole.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Reinstated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's game against the Astros.

Simmons had been sidelined since Aug. 4 due to a left ankle sprain, though he was able to successfully take at-bats in a sim game Wednesday and will be cleared to return from the IL without a trip to the minor leagues. He's slashing .274/.315/.382 with five homers and 28 RBI over 74 games this season for the Angels.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Takes live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) took at-bats in a simulated game Wednesday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

This is a step in the right direction for the shortstop, who has been sidelined with a sprained ankle and bone bruise since the beginning of August. He's scheduled to join the Angels in Houston over the weekend, though it's not yet clear whether he'll be activated during that series.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Won't be ready for road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels aren't expected to activate 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: To take swings Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) is expected to resume hitting Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Simmons was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 4 due to a bone bruise and left ankle sprain, though he's beginning to ramp up his activities. He'll need to gain clearance to resume all baseball activities before likely embarking on a rehab stint.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Eyeing imminent return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brad Ausmus said he expects 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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels placed 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.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Heading for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons will undergo an MRI on his left foot, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Simmons was scratched from Saturday's lineup with left foot soreness, which he apparently sustained while hitting in the cage prior to the game. The MRI should provide some clarity on the severity of the injury, but the 29-year-old seems likely to be withheld from the lineup again Sunday, at least.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Dealing with foot soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons was scratched from Saturday's game against the Indians with left foot soreness.

Simmons was scheduled to serve in his usual starting role at shortstop but was removed from the lineup less than an hour before first pitch. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but for now the 29-year-old should be considered day-to-day. David Fletcher takes over at shortstop in his absence.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Scratched Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons was scratched from Saturday's lineup at Cleveland.

Simmons was scheduled to start at shortstop per usual, but he was pulled from the starting nine for an undisclosed reason less than an hour before first pitch. More information should be available on his status later Saturday. David Fletcher will take over at shortstop for the Angels.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons is not starting Saturday against the Orioles.

Simmons has started 10 of the past 11 games, hitting just .190 with one home run over that stretch. In his place, David Fletcher is covering shortstop and hitting leadoff.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Bows out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons isn't in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles.

Simmons is in line for a night off after going 2-for-9 over his last two contests. David Fletcher gets the nod at shortsop and will lead off in Simmons' absence.
