Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Braves | Andrelton Simmons surging

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is 11-for-22 with four doubles, two home runs, six RBIs and just two strikeouts in his last five games. He is 8-for-20 as the No. 2 hitter with a strikeout and a walk, while the rest of the team in the two hole is a combined 12-for-108 (.111) with 34 strikeouts and 15 walks.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons is scorching hot right now and has proven that he can bring his stick to play along with his leather. He's emerging as one of the best young shortstops in the National League, and he should be owned in a high number of mixed leagues as either your shortstop or for middle infield depth.
