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.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Ankle improving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons said his ankle is beginning to feel better after twisting it while running through first base in Monday's loss to the Athletics, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Simmons provided encouraging news to reporters, saying that he feels much better than when he suffered a similar-looking ankle injury last season. Given that Simmons is already beginning to improve, it does not seem out of the question for the slick-fielding shortstop to return within a few days of when he is eligible to come off the injured list Aug. 7.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left ankle sprain, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The 30-year-old sustained the injury while beating out an grounder for an infield hit Monday, and it will cost him at least a brief stay on the shelf. Simmons doesn't have an official timeline for his return, but he'll first be eligible to be activated Aug. 7. Luis Rengifo (hamstring) was activated off the injured list in a corresponding move and could see time at shortstop, though David Fletcher is starting Tuesday's game and will also be in the mix.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

The 30-year-old exited Monday's contest after suffering the left ankle injury while running out an infield hit. Simmons should be considered day-to-day until the team provides an update on the injury. David Fletcher is starting at shortstop Tuesday and is the likely candidate to remain there while Simmons is sidelined.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Diagnosis expected Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels expect to know more about Simmons' ankle injury Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

He is typically a quick healer, so there is some optimism among the team's beat writers that he will not be sidelined for long. Simmons suffered the injury while beating out a groundball for an infield hit in Monday's game against the A's. David Fletcher is the most likely player to start at shortstop while Simmons is out, but Luis Rengifo (hamstring) is also nearing a return.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons left Monday's game against Oakland with an apparent left ankle injury after beating out a groundball for an infield hit, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The exact nature and severity of the injury are not yet clear. Utility man David Fletcher will likely slide over to shortstop in his absence.

Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Produces from ninth spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons went 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored during Saturday's 4-1 win over the Athletics.

The slick-fielding shortstop plated a two-out, RBI double that scored Taylor Ward, and it was the first of three runs scored by the Angels in the top of the fifth inning. Simmons is coming off a 2019 season in which he hit for .264 with a below-average .673 OPS.

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.
