Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Heads to restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels placed Simmons on the restricted list Tuesday, after he informed the team that he was opting out of the remainder of the 2020 season.

The transaction opened up a spot on the 40-man roster and 28-man active roster for Elliot Soto, who will help fill the void in the middle infield while Simmons misses the Angels' final five games of the season. With that, Simmons' time with the Angels could be over, as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He appeared in 30 games in 2020, slashing .297/.346/.356 with no home runs, two steals, 19 runs and 10 RBI.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Opts out of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons informed the Angels on Tuesday that he will opt out of the rest of the season.

With the Angels out of the playoff race, Simmons has decided to end his season a little early. He ends the year with a .295/.348/.352 slash line, zero home runs and two stolen bases in 122 at-bats and was officially placed on the restricted list before Tuesday's game in San Diego. David Fletcher and Luis Rengifo should handle the work at shortstop over the rest of the week. Simmons will be a free agent this offseason.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Slides down batting order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons will start at shortstop and will bat ninth Sunday against the Rockies, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Simmons had led off in five straight games for the Angels before he was moved down to the No. 9 spot in Saturday's 5-2 win. His drop in the lineup corresponds with the return of David Fletcher (ankle), who settled in atop the order in his first game in two weeks. Expect Fletcher to serve as the Angels' full-time leadoff man versus both left- and right-handed pitching moving forward, an arrangement that will likely put a damper on Simmons' run-scoring opportunities.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Filling in as leadoff man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons will start at shortstop and will bat leadoff Thursday against the Rangers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Simmons has now slotted in atop the lineup eight times in 10 games, taking over the table-setting role while David Fletcher (ankle) is on the mend. Though he's rewarded the Angels with a .343/.361/.429 slash line over that stretch, Simmons could move back down the lineup at some point during the Angels' weekend series in Colorado. Fletcher is eligible to return from the IL and is said to be progressing, so he could be activated at some point within the next three days.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Swinging hot stick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run in the first game of a doubleheader sweep over the Astros on Saturday.

Simmons didn't play in Game 2, but the night off had nothing to do with his recent performance. In fact, the shortstop has been red-hot at the plate of late, collecting two hits in each of his last five games and driving in a run in each of his last four contests. Over the course of his current nine-game hitting streak, Simmons is hitting .429 with five RBI and six runs scored. Prior to Saturday, every hit during the streak had been a single, but Simmons stepped up with a two doubles, including a two-bagger that scored a key run to break a tie in the seventh inning. The veteran's hot streak has pushed his season average to a robust .349 through 63 at-bats.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Not starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader with the Astros.

Simmons tallied two hits in Saturday's opener -- the fifth straight game in which he has done that -- but manager Joe Maddon will let him take it easy in the nightcap. Franklin Barreto will cover shortstop in Simmons' place.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Scores three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons went 2-for-3 with three runs scored and two walks in Saturday's win over the Mariners.

Simmons has always been known for his defense, but he has quietly assembled a four-game hitting streak while producing three multi-hit performances in only 11 games this season. The shortstop is hitting .286 with a .671 OPS.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Sitting for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros.

He returned a few days ago from a sprained ankle, and it was expected the team would manage his workload initially. Look for him to be back in the lineup for the nightcap.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Records steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons went 0-for-3 with a stolen base, a run scored and a walk in Monday's 11-4 loss to the Astros.

Simmons got aboard with a walk in the third inning, then moved to second base on an Anthony Bemboom sacrifice bunt. Simmons then picked up his first stolen base of the year by advancing to third, and he scored on David Fletcher's infield single. It was a solid show of speed for Simmons, who was playing in just his third game back from a sprained left ankle. The shortstop is hitting .250 with an RBI, four runs scored and a steal in seven contests this year.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Having workload managed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons is expected to start back-to-back games Sunday and Monday before getting another day off Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Simmons was reinstated from the injured list Friday and immediately slotted into the starting lineup, but he rested Saturday and is in line for more rest Tuesday. The schedule is part of the team's plan to make sure the veteran stays healthy after missing time with a sprained ankle each of the last two campaigns. The issue has limited Simmons to only five games this season, during which he has gone 5-for-20 (.250) with a double, an RBI and three runs.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

Simmons started Friday in his first game back from the injured list and went 2-for-4 with one run. David Fletcher will start at shortstop with Simmons on the bench.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Activated by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday and will start against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Simmons was with the Angels for the team's two games in San Francisco, and he'll start in his first game back on the active roster. The 30-year-old has been on the injured list since July 28 as a result of a left ankle sprain but went 3-for-16 at the plate prior to his injury. Max Stassi (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Could return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manger Joe Maddon said Thursday that Simmons (ankle) could be back in the lineup at some point during the weekend series against the Athletics, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Simmons joined the team for their two games in San Francisco and it sounds like the shortstop could be in the lineup on the other side of the bay as soon as Friday night. Simmons logged three hits in 16 at-bats before landing on the injured list July 28.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Traveling for road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) traveled to San Francisco with the team, and manager Joe Maddon said he's "pretty close" to a return from the injured list, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The 30-year-old has been sidelined by the left ankle sprain since July 27, but it appears he's on the cusp of being activated. David Fletcher took over the everyday role at shortstop during his absence, but Simmons should reclaim the starting role, while Fletcher likely moves around the diamond to continue receiving regular starts.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

SImmons (ankle) could be activated from the injured list soon, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Simmons landed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained left ankle July 28, so he has already far exceeded the minimum stay. Angels manager Joe Maddon indicated Monday that the shortstop could be ready to get back on the field soon, stating, "I don't think it's in the too distant future." Simmons is likely to return to a starting role upon his activation, with David Fletcher getting starts at various positions to keep his bat in the lineup.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Unlikely to return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) is unlikely to return during the Angels' weekend series against the Dodgers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Although there was hope that Simmons would be able to return over the weekend, manager Joe Maddon revealed Friday that he's still sore. As a result, he'll likely be sidelined for at least three more games. However, the 30-year-old has been taking live batting practice at the Angels' alternate training site and could return relatively soon if his soreness subsides.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Could return for weekend series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) is making good progress and could return for the Angels' weekend series against the Dodgers, which begins Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Simmons hit the injured list in late July with a sprained left ankle. He's been taking live batting practice at the Angels' secondary site and is nearly ready to return, though the team hasn't officially confirmed that he'll be back for Friday's contest.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Nearing return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Maddon said Monday that Simmons (ankle) is taking batting practice and nearing a return, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Halos' skipper did not speculate as to Simmons' timetable when asked Sunday, but he apparently saw enough progress on the field Monday to deem Simmons close to ready. Simmons sprained his left ankle while running out an infield hit during the first week of the season. David Fletcher has thrived as the primary shortstop in Simmons' absence and should remain heavily involved while rotating around the diamond.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Remains without return timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) is improving, but his return date remains uncertain, the Associated Press reports.

Simmons was placed on the injured list with a left ankle sprain July 28, but he has not yet progressed enough in his recovery for the organization to determine a timetable for his return. The 30-year-old was off to a slow start prior to the injury, slashing .188/.188/.250 through 16 plate appearances.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Progressing slowly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Maddon said Simmons (ankle) is progressing in his recovery but is "still pretty sore," Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 30-year-old is eligible to return from the injured list this week, but he clearly needs more recovery time before nearing full health. Maddon also said his recovery from the left ankle sprain is "progressing but not as quickly as it could," and Simmons remains without a clear timetable for his return. David Fletcher should continue to operate as the Angels' primary shortstop for the foreseeable future.
