Andrelton Simmons News
The New York Yankees have expressed interest in a trade for Texas Rangers shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa. The slick fielder may be expendable now that Texas has added both Marcus Semien and Corey Seager in free agency. New York has also been connected to free agent shortstop Andrelton Simmons. The Yankees had been speculated as a potential landing spot for one of the top free agent shortstops, of which Carlos Correa, Trevor Story, and Chris Taylor remain, but it now appears they will not make such a splash unless contract demands decrease. Prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza lurk in the minors as potential shortstops of the future, and Gio Urshela and Gleyber Torres remain fallback options on the Yankees roster.
Minnesota Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Chicago White Sox. Simmons was part of a strong fifth inning for the Twins, as his 102.8 MPH double scored Gilberto Celestino to make it a 3-2 game. The veteran shortstop is now 5-for-15 with a home run, double, three RBI, and six runs scored over his last five games. Simmons should only be considered n the deepest of formats, considering his lack of power and low batting average.
Minnesota Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons kept up his recent strong play at the dish in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Indians. Simmons homered in the third inning to give the Twins a 3-0 lead, then later walked and scored a run in the fourth. The veteran shortstop has battled ankle injuries once again this season but appears healthy and has been on a tear lately, going 7-for-22 with a home run, two RBI, and seven runs scored over his last six contests. He should only be considered in deeper points leagues, given that he's not a multi-category producer.
