Hitters to sit in Week 18


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/2014) Whether because of poor matchups, unfavorable platoon splits or the fact they're just plain cold, Yan Gomes, Allen Craig, Josh Rutledge, Lonnie Chisenhall, Andrelton Simmons and Khris Davis are "sits" for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)

Find out the "why" for each in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Andrelton Simmons enters break amidst hot July


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons collected eight multihit performances in 12 July games to enter the All-Star break hitting .375/.434/.438 with just two strikeouts in 48 at-bats this month.

Simmons went 0 for 2 in his final game before the break, but he managed to draw three walks, giving him a ninth game reaching base multiple times in July. While his overall numbers are still down from his last two seasons, he has at least rebounded from a rough June, and he owns a .265/.309/.363 line with five home runs, 30 RBI and three stolen base in 339 at-bats. He's well off his 17-homer pace of last season.

Andrelton Simmons trying to cut down on swing


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Braves infielder Andrelton Simmons is trying to cut down on his swing, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Simmons said he's swung hard his whole life, but he's trying to display more control of his bat now. He's working with hitting coach Greg Walker on making those changes. "He’s a high-effort guy with his swing, at times to a fault," Walker said. "And that’s something that we’re trying to ratchet down." Walker wants to make sure Simmons is utilizing the entire field, and not turning into an extreme pull hitter. 

Simmons is hitting .254/.290/.388 over 224 at-bats.


Andrelton Simmons slugs first-inning grand slam in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons made a rare impact with his bat Tuesday, in a 13-10 win over the Rockies.

On a night when the ball was flying out of Coors Field, Simmons provided the biggest blast. He opened the game with a grand slam, capping off a seven-run Braves first. That lone swing of the bat was his only contribution to the winning cause, as he finished 1 for 4 with a walk, while scoring just one run and driving in four on the home run.

Simmons has five home runs on the season, and is batting .258/.294/.396 in 217 at-bats.

Find out why in my latest Start and Sit Hitters column.
