Andrelton Simmons was reinstated from the 10-day IL on Saturday and designated for assignment.
Simmons was having a terrible year for Chicago even when he was healthy, slashing .173/.244/.187. At this point in their season, there's nothing the Cubs can gain from giving at-bats to a player who isn't a part of their future, and the 32-year-old Simmons certainly isn't that. Expect him to latch on somewhere as a defensive replacement, but there's no fantasy value to see here.
Andrelton Simmons was placed on the 10-day IL Thursday with a right shoulder strain.
Simmons first season in Chicago has not gone well. In 35 games he is slashing .173/.244/.187 with seven RBIs and four stolen bases. Now is a great time to search the waiver wire for a replacement for Simmons if he was on your roster.
Cubs 2B Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-2 Tuesday, with one run scored, and one RBI in a 8-7 win over the Brewers.
Simmons has only played in 15 games this season. In 39 at-bats, he has eight hits, six RBIs, three stolen bases, and five runs scored.
Andrelton Simmons was activated from the injured list Sunday and made his Cubs debut as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning.
Simmons did not record a plate appearance. His defensive presence will be huge for the Cubs infield, but he likely won't be quite the producer from a fantasy perspective that he once was at this point in his career.
Andrelton Simmons is continuing his live batting practice and throwing program in Arizona.
Simmons is recovering from the shoulder injury that has kept him out of the Cubs' lineup so far in 2022. The 31-year-old is coming off a down year offensively, but his defense remains top-notch. He does not hold much value in fantasy league formats at this point.
