Simmons went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI Sunday in Texas.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons played a major role in his team's near comeback during the ninth inning, knocking in two runs with a bases-loaded double. Unfortunately, Los Angeles ultimately came up just short, stranding Simmons on third base in a 7-6 loss. The defensive dynamo is having his best season at the plate, slashing .288/.339/.445 with a career-high 64 RBI.

Simmons is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a rare day off for Simmons, who will head to the bench for just his third time of the season. There has been no word of any injury at this point, so it appears to be a regular day off for the 27-year-old. Cliff Pennington will take over at shortstop for the game.

Simmons went 2-for-4 with a double and a go-ahead, three-run home run in Saturday's win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons channeled his inner Adrian Beltre, going down on a knee to get a Tyler Clippard offering in the bottom of the eighth. He has been slumping a bit lately -- Simmons was batting just .217/.292/.349 in August entering play Saturday -- but his season numbers are still excellent. He's easily been a top-10 earner at shortstop to this point with his cross-category production.

Simmons went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 5-4 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

With 13 homers on the year, Simmons may be able to surpass the career high 17 he hit in 2013. While that season appeared to be an anomaly, the 27-year-old has put together a well-rounded campaign in 2017 with a .292 batting average, 62 runs, 57 RBI and 17 steals to go along with his solid contribution in the power department.

Simmons clubbed his 12th home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Mariners, finishing the night 1-for-4 with two RBI.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons hit 15 home runs in his last three seasons combined, so his power surge in 2017 has been one of the biggest surprises across the fantasy landscape. He's just five home runs shy of tying his career-best mark of 17, which he set in his first full season in 2013. Simmons is slashing .356/.414/.552 with three home runs and four steals since the All-Star break.

Simmons went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons took Rick Porcello deep in the fourth inning for his 11th home run of the year. The two-time gold glove winner at shortstop launched 17 long balls back in 2013, but had failed to hit more than seven in any other season until this one. Throw in a career-high .450 slugging percentage that blows his previous best .416 mark out of the water, and it's understandable why Simmons was moved up to third in the batting order for this one.

Simmons went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

It was the Simmons' 10th homer of the season, which marks the first time he has reached the double-digit plateau since his 17-homer outburst in 2013. The 27-year-old has shown flashes of offensive ability over his first five seasons in the majors, but he has finally put it all together this season and shed his label of a glove-first shortstop. Simmons' well-rounded line of .289, 45 runs, 10 homers, 43 RBI and 13 steals should make him a useful asset in almost any fantasy format.

Simmons went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons was known as a light-hitting defensive specialist during his time in Atlanta, but he's putting up career highs across the board with a .291/.341/.440 line in his second season with the Angels. The shortstop has smacked four doubles among his eight hits in the past five games.

Simmons was lifted in the seventh inning of Friday's blowout loss to the Rangers, but no injury was reported.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like manager Mike Scioscia simply wanted to give his top middle infielder some extra rest in a game that the Angels had little to no chance of coming back in. Simmons is in the midst of a breakout campaign, slashing .285/.338/.430 with nine home runs and 13 steals as we near the All-Star break.
