Andrelton Simmons Newsbeat

Trout’s HR carries Angels over Rangers

What is Mike Scioscia thinking batting Andrelton Simmons fourth in the order? He has no power. His on base skills aren’t great. It makes me scratch my head.

Angels activate Andrelton Simmons ahead of schedule - The Orange County Register

Good news for the Angels.

Simmons, who returned early from thumb surgery, made three difficult plays in his first game back, including one eye-popping backhand play in the hole.

“He made some tough plays look easy,” Manager Mike Scioscia said.

Simmons even had two hits and he drew a walk, an all-around good return for one of the many key players the Angels have lost to injury this season.

When Simmons tore the UCL in his left thumb on May 8 and had surgery on May 10, the initial prognosis was that he would miss six to eight weeks. He came back in just over five weeks.
