Andrelton Simmons
30-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Los Angeles Angels
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Simmons followed up a solid 2017 campaign with another good showing in 2018. His batting average sat at a career-best .292 mark thanks mostly to his superb contact skills. The defensive wiz struck out just 7.3% of the time and produced a contact rate of 92.1%, both career bests. He also increased his hard-hit rate from 29.2% to 36.0%, largely because he led qualified hitters with a 51.0 Pull%. There were some negatives, however. Part of Simmons' appeal in 2017 came from his baserunning, as he stole 19 bases. Unfortunately, he was only able to to swipe 10 bags (on 12 attempts) in 2018. He also saw a downturn in the power department, as his home-run total dipped by three from 2017, and his extra-base hit total dropped by eight, as well. Simmons isn't a top-tier option at shortstop for fantasy purposes, but he still possesses mixed-league appeal thanks to his potential to steal some bases to go with his good contact skills and secure playing time.
