What are projections for him this year? I'm hearing the Braves are considering batting him leadoff. Could be a good source of SB's and runs.

by the time most draft starts this guys value will increase because of the espn and yahoo articles. was planning on drafting him at the end of the draft but by then he will have more value in the draft.

thanks matthew berry and yahoos butt boys.

Does he have any value other than Runs? He was injured so much last year there isn't much to see just in those stats. No indication of either speed or power. Did he show any in the minors?

I am far from a scout but I watched him whenever I got the chance and he appears very poised at the plate. He never seems to get flustered and made great contact with a low amount of Ks. I don't think you can expect much in terms of power or speed but something close to .295 with 8-10 hrs and sbs would be my prediction. I won't be keeping Jeter in my keeper league this year and fully plan on drafting him late.

I hope he bats lead off, he really might be the only lead off hitter they cold have. If he does he has some good value because of runs and maybe ten to twenty steals. I don't think his power will be great though, but I wouldn't mind grabbing someone like him and segura late as a SS platoon situation and see if one of them works out

I think his bat will progress a lot like Starlin Castro's has. Castro may have a little more upside but Simmon's bat gets a little overshadowed by his great defense, I think he projects as a solid offensive SS as well.

No power, His minor league steals/caught stealing is erratic as is shown below. He only had 1 steal last year. If he bats lead-off and they let him steal some, he could have some value for runs and some steals.

have they completely given up on pastornicky, or does he have a shot in ST?

if i remember correctly he did some unforgivable thing last year that got him completely removed from any playing time. can't remember exactly what it was, but there was a specific point in the season where he was black balled. pastornicky, that is

Pastornicky has no shot as shortstop. His only chance at any playing time with the Braves is if he can become a utility guy capable of playing multiple positions. His defense at SS is just too bad, and his bad bat doesn't make up for it.

7-10 HRs, ~15 steals, good OBP/avg. For a shortstop, that makes him decent in most categories, but not outstanding in any one. I don't see much upside in the HR total or the steals projections, that is pretty close to what his ceiling is.

He is all or nothing on batting order, probably hits 1st or hits 8th and in an NL line up those are HUGE differences in approach and how the game is played and statistical accumulation.

I hear a lot of people comp him to Starlin Castro. Assuming he sticks in the leadoff spot what do people see as floor and ceiling stats for Simmons?

He's my starting shortstop. All I'm hoping for from him is 10 HR and 15 SB. I don't think that's asking too much. Assuming he has a solid OBP, he'll have no problem scoring at least 90 runs in that lineup.

Agreed. Above all else I'm hoping for consistency from him, i.e. no prolonged slumps. His elite contact % and low K total should help him avoid major slumps. I expect ~8 HRs, 90 runs (assuming he bats leadoff most of the season), 15-17 steals, and a ~.280 avg. I'll take that all day long.
