Atlanta Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons could return from his thumb injury by the end of this week, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Simmons has not played since suffering a sprained thumb Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies, but he was able to get a pregame workout in Tuesday, including throwing and fielding ground balls. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said the injury improved significantly over the past few days, and the team is hopeful Simmons could return if that trend continues. "Our medical people are calling it a sprain," Gonzalez told MLB.com earlier in the week. "There is no timetable. We're on top of it. We'll get him some ice and treatment and see how quickly we can get him back on the field." Known primarily for his defense, Simmons is hitting just .254/.317/.330 with three home runs and 30 RBI in 101 games this season.

Simmons was expected to miss multiple games after sustaining the injury, and while that has not changed, Gonzalez was optimistic that Simmons would be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list after X-rays taken returned negative.

Atlanta Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons was diagnosed with a sprained thumb Sunday, and he is expected to miss at least a few games, according to MLB.com. X-rays on Simmons' thumb showed no fractures after he had the digit examined following Saturday's loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, and it is still possible that he could be placed on the 15-day disabled list. He will be evaluated again in Atlanta on Monday, which will help determine the need for the DL placement. Simmons suffered the injury during an at-bat in the seventh inning Saturday, as he was replaced by Daniel Castro for the eighth inning. He was still experiencing some soreness and swelling with his thumb Sunday, which is why he was held out of the lineup. Castro is expected to get a majority of the playing time while Simmons is sidelined, though Pedro Ciriaco could also fill in.
