Braves | Andrelton Simmons moved up the order

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:34:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is batting second against Miami Marlins SP Chris Narveson Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Bump Simmons ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) up a peg in your daily rankings Monday. He receives a nice boost hitting atop the lineup, and he does so in a plus-matchup. He checks out as a solid low-priced option at shortstop for FantasyScore players Monday.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons returns Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:33:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (knee) is returning to the lineup against the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Aug. 25, after missing two games with a sore knee.

Fantasy Tip: Many folks will likely avoid Simmons ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) because of his recent injury or for the fact he hasn't been much of an offensive force in 2015. Don't blindly avoid him, though, as he could be a successful sleeper pick against the hittable Chad Bettis.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons remains out

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:28:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (knee) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24, but manager Fredi Gonzalez said Simmons has no structural damage and is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Pedro Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) Monday. Ciriaco shouldn't be viewed as anything other than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players Monday. Check back for an update on Simmons ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) before returning him to your lineups Tuesday.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons out of lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:01:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Sunday, Aug. 23. INF Pedro Ciriaco will play shortstop and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .316 this month with a home run and five RBIs. However, his limited offensive potential means he should be ignored in FantasyScore unless you need the cap relief.

Braves | No Andrelton Simmons Wednesday

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:22:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't be considering Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) on FantasyScore. The infielder has 24 hits in 95 at-bats (.253) with no home runs and 11 RBI this year.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons returns

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 14:30:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) returned to the lineup Saturday, Aug. 8, hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons' ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) matchup against Tom Koehler isn't too bad, but he's a far better defender than offensive stick. Pass on FantasyScore.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons remains on track

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 15:50:06 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) said he is ready to play whenever manager Fredi Gonzalez puts him in the lineup. Simmons hit in the batting cages and took batting practice before the Braves' game against the Miami Marlins Friday, Aug. 7. It was the first time he had hit since suffering a bone bruise in his right thumb Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised to see Simmons ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) return to the lineup Saturday, Aug. 8. Over his past 25 games, he has a .200/.289/.213 slash line with just five runs and an RBI. Simmons should be avoided in the majority of leagues until he turns it around at the dish, especially at FantasyScore.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons still out

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 14:03:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) remains out of the lineup Friday, Aug. 7. SS Daniel Castro is starting at the 6 again and is hitting second against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) provides great salary cap relief, but he should be avoided at all costs tonight on FantasyScore while going up against the dominant Fernandez.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons can grab a bat

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 16:58:44 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) feels OK grabbing a bat, but he still hasn't hit, after missing his fifth consecutive game Thursday, Aug. 6. Simmons said he's aiming to return to the lineup by this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) can be used occasionally against right-handed pitchers on FantasyScore. Without much power, his ceiling is relatively low, and a thumb injury won't help.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons could return soon

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 13:44:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) could return as soon as this weekend during the series against the Miami Marlins, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Including the game Thursday, Aug. 6, Simmons ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has missed the past five outings, so he'll be a risky FantasyScore play until he proves his health in a game or two. Over his past 25 games, he has a .200/.289/.213 slash line with just five runs and an RBI. Seasonal owners should be aiming higher.
