Recommended Pickup
Andrelton Simmons, SS, ATL: Simmons stock has been on the rise ever since he was drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft. Over three minor league seasons, he hit .299/.352/.397, with a .293/.372/.420 line in Double-A this season. Of course, he was called up to the majors way back on June 2 and quickly became one of the best fantasy options at shortstop in the game. Over 34 games, he hit .288 wth three homers, 13 runs scored and 15 RBI. Unfortunately, Simmons was placed on the DL with a fractured finger on July 9. He returned to the Braves on Monday with an inauspicious start, going 0-3. Still, he might very well be a big upgrade at shortstop for many teams, and he's only owned in just over one percent of ESPN leagues.
