Angels | Andrelton Simmons hitting second

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 09:02:31 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons is hitting second Wednesday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons has a 12-game hitting streak, but it's misleading because he only has multiple hits in two of the games. Simmons faces one of the best pitchers in baseball in Chris Sale, and Simmons hit just .228 against lefties from 2012-15. He's a very buyer-beware option in DFS.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons streaking

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 23:02:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: The streak is a bit misleading because he's hitting just .278 with three RBI. He has only had multiple hits in two of the games. While the streak is nice, he remains a midrange shortstop with suspect offensive prowess.

Angels | Three-hit game for Andrelton Simmons

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 23:27:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI Monday, April 18, against the Chicago White Sox to push his average to .275.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons has now hit safely in 11 straight games dating back to April 7 to equal a career high. While that's impressive, he has 11 singles and three doubles during the span, to limit his value in DFS play and fantasy formats.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons making swings count?

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:43:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons owns the best swing-and-miss percentage in the league with just two misses on 44 swings (4.5%) this season. However, Simmons has also yet to register a walk through eight games.

Fantasy Tip: With a .241/.241/.324 slash line and just a single RBI to start the season, Simmons is picking up where he left off in 2015. He should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, and even in those deep leagues, there isn't a lot to like about the defensive specialist.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons back with a bang

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 13:50:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (arm) made a leaping catch, started a double play and hit his first spring home run in his return to shortstop duties Tuesday, March 22.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons wasn't worried about his sore arm, and we can see why. He'll be fine. However, he's not much more than middle infield insurance late in deep mixed and AL leagues. Simmons is a free hacker without much power, and his speed is really his biggest asset.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons could play SS Tuesday

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 09:59:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (arm) said his arm felt "amazing" after throwing Sunday, March 20, and he's not concerned at all. He's hoping to play shortstop Tuesday, March 22.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons should be fine for the regular season after getting past his arm soreness. He's not much of a fantasy commodity, though, as he lacks power and struggles to get on base often to utilize his speed. Simmons is at best a depth middle infield piece in deep mixed leagues.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons back in action

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 12:06:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (arm) is back in the lineup for Cactus League play Thursday, March 17, but he isn't playing the field yet.

Fantasy Tip: The knock on Simmons with the lumber is that he hacks too much and doesn't take enough walks. His power likely peaked with 17 homers back in 2013, too. He's a defense-first player that is middle infield depth, at best, in deep mixed leagues.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons says he's fine

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 09:56:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (arm) said his three days off is just a precaution and his arm is fine. Simmons said he can play.

Fantasy Tip: There's little upside to Simmons' offensive game, but he did show growth in plate discipline and walk rate in the second half last year. The biggest attraction to Simmons as middle infield depth in deep mixed leagues is his speed.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons nursing arm injury

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 10:48:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (arm) will not play the field for the third consecutive day because of a minor arm injury. He is expected to play Wednesday, March 16, according to manager Mike Scioscia, though.

Fantasy Tip: It would be wise to limit your exposure to Simmons to deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats. He has an underwhelming .255/.304/.335 slash line the past two seasons with just 11 home runs and nine stolen bases. His defense keeps him on the field, and therefore in play for leagues with deep rosters, but otherwise, you should aim higher.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons has manager's support

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 06:07:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons is confident and more relaxed at the plate entering the season because he knows manager Mike Scioscia values Simmon's approach.

"It feels great, man. It helps you build that confidence," Simmons said. "I don't have to go up there and be that big-name hitter. I just have to play my part -- hit-and-run, bunt the guy over. That might take a little pressure off me and make it easier."

Fantasy Tip: Simmons had a strong 2013 fantasy campaign with 76 runs and 17 home runs, but his career .256/.304/.362 slash line highlights it was likely a blip on the radar. He has hit just 11 home runs the past two seasons, after all. Simmons shouldn't be a priority on draft day in the majority of formats, and he should be viewed as a low-end shortstop in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.
