Braves | Andrelton Simmons sitting out

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 12:22:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .298 average (14-for-47) as a utility infielder for the Bravos. However, he doesn't have much power and his offensive abilities are limited, making him a very weak play on FantasyScore, especially while at the bottom of the lineup.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons returns vs. Boston

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 13:04:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (hand) is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 20 games, Simmons ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a respectable .308 batting average with a modest counting-stat return of 10 runs and nine RBI. He missed two games with the hand injury and stands as more of a lineup filler than a building block for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Braves | Pedro Ciriaco fills in admirably

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 23:01:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Pedro Ciriaco started Wednesday, June 17, against the Boston Red Sox in place of the injured SS Andrelton Simmons (hand).

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600; or 3.2% of cap) had three hits in four at-bats with a double and two RBIs as a fill-in. He could be a cheap FantasyScore option with some upside if he gets another chance to start.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons not starting

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 12:10:32 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (hand) is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Wednesday, June 17. SS Pedro Ciriaco will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) probably is considered day-to-day because of his injured hand. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is coming off a 2-for-4 performance in his last game with one RBI, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option for their lineups.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons rests hand

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 19:05:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (hand) was out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16, against the Boston Red Sox. He was hit on the right hand attempting a bunt Monday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,000; or 6.0% of cap) was able to play on Monday, so Tuesday’s game was likely just a rest. His injury did not sound terribly serious, but obviously he suffered some bruising or swelling overnight. Wait to see him officially return and prove his health in a full game before trusting him in FantasyScore.

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16, in favor of SS Pedro Ciriaco hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) faces the struggling Wade Miley, but he has little FantasyScore luster.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons dodges bullet

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 22:07:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (hand) was hit on the right hand by a pitch Monday, June 15, against the Boston Red Sox. However, he was able to remain in the game. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Simmons was not scheduled for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,000; or 6.0% of cap) appears to have dodged a serious bullet, but FantasyScore players might want to avoid him Tuesday in case the injury worsens overnight.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons ties career high

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:20:17 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons tied a career high with four hits Saturday, June 13, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) extended his hit-streak to six games, with just his second multi-hit game during that span. Simmons is hitting .276 for the season, while also walking at a rate of 6.5. Simmons doesn't offer much speed or power, but his OBP of .335 can keep him under FantasyScore consideration.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons hitting second

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 16:16:37 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is hitting second in the order Tuesday, June 2, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is riding a 10-game hit streak, during which he has gone 15-for-39. Simmons has just one extra-base hit during the streak, but with the potential for multiple hits he's a relatively safe option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons in two-hole Monday

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:49:26 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is hitting second in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley Monday, June 1, with OF Cameron Maybin out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) gains value in daily games with a move up the batting order. Bradley has struggled since being hit by a line drive in the face, giving up at least four runs in his three starts since for an ERA of 11.81 in May. Simmons enters on a nine-game hitting streak in which he's gone 12-for-32 (.375). Consider Simmons a nice value pick tonight.
