Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons missed last night’s game with a sore wrist. Afterwards, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that Simmons was unlikely to play today as well.

Simmons jammed his wrist Wednesday night when he was tagged out at the plate and collided with Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud. He remained in the game, but the wrist still bothers him when he swings. 

Ramiro Pena still bothers me when he pays shortstop, but I guess we all have to get used to what bothers us once in a while.

    What have the Baseball gods bestow upon this Braves team!? First are the Pitchers and now the most defensive shortstop in Baseball today is headin to the the DL too? The pain is unbearable! I really hope Simmons get’s well soon…

      Well not headin… I really hope it won’t happen this year.

    I wish someone would pay me to play shortstop.

      For the Braves? If your good I’ll pay you a one day contract till Simmons comes back :-).

        I was taking a cheap shot at Craig (sorry Craig, I couldn’t resist) because it appears as though he left a letter out of the word “play.” However, I did play shortstop 10 years ago in high school. Wouldn’t matter though, because anyone that is filling in for Simmons is going to look terrible.

        Hehe I see, gotta agree with your last statement though anyone would be pressured as heck if someone replaces him at his position knowing he plays a caliber role there.
