Andrelton Simmons: (Thumb) Back In Business Staff

Update: Simmons (thumb) is back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins.

Recommendation: Simmons missed the last couple days due to his thumb injury, but he will be able to take the field Monday. Simmons opened the year as the Braves' leadoff hitter, but B.J. Upton reached base six times in the two games Simmons missed, so he will remain atop the order and Simmons will bat eighth in his return to action.
