Atlanta Braves RP Shae Simmons (elbow) is expected to rejoin the club in the next couple of weeks after positive rehab outings with Class AAA Gwinnett. Simmons underwent Tommy John surgery in February 2015 and missed all of last season.
Fantasy Tip: The Braves liked what they saw out of Simmons as a rookie (2.91 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 23 K's in 21 2/3 IP) and planned to use him as a setup man prior to the injury. He'll no doubt be eased back into action, but he's a name to file away in case Arodys Vizcaino stumbles as Atlanta's closer.
