Andrelton Simmons: Out Saturday With Sprained Thumb Staff

Update: Simmons will miss Saturday's game versus the Cubs due to a sprained left thumb.

Recommendation: Simmons, who was in his typical leadoff spot in the Braves' initial lineup, was later scratched. We'll consider him day-to-day until the extent of the injury is known, but in his stead, Ramiro Pena will get the nod at shortstop.
