Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (oblique) is expected to miss at least the first few spring training games.
Fantasy Tip: Simmons' stock in fantasy leagues is unchanged with this news. He remains a middle infield option in deep leagues and a starting shortstop option in NL-only formats. Owners drafting him will hope he's able to recapture some of the power he displayed during the 2013 season after failing to reach double-digit homers last season.

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (oblique) did some light throwing Friday, Feb. 27, and "dry swings." His oblique injury doesn't look like it will keep him out of action for very long.
Fantasy Tip: Simmons is a defensive star in the league. Unfortunately, he doesn't have much going for him at the dish, especially after he hit 10 fewer home runs in 2014 than he did the year prior. And he doesn't run very much at all, either, meaning he's a late-round flier at the position in the hope that he can rebound some from his overcorrection in 2014.

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (oblique) will not throw in the early days of camp due to a sore oblique. The team hopes he'll be ready in a week.
Fantasy Tip: The injury isn't serious, but Simmons took a step backwards in his second full season last year. He has hit .248 and .244 in his two seasons, and he hit just seven homers after his promising 17-homer campaign in 2013. At this stage, he's a low-end SS and a player with upside for your MI spot.
