Andrelton Simmons News
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.
Minnesota Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is back in the starting lineup and batting eighth in Saturday's game against Kolby Allard and the Texas Rangers. Simmons left Wednesday's game with left ankle tightness. The team was off on Thursday and he was held out of Friday's game. Simmons' return will bolster the Twins' defense, but he doesn't add much value from a fantasy perspective. Through 52 games on the year, Simmons is slashing .241/.320/.316 with two home runs, 14 RBI and 18 runs.
