Ramblings about the Braves by True Braves Fans
The Braves placed Andrelton Simmons on the 15-day disabled list Monday, a day after the shortstop injured his right hand on a head-first slide.
An examination by team Associate Physician Dr. Gary Lourie Monday confirmed Simmons has a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal (pinky finger). He will be in a cast for four weeks and re-evaluated after it is removed. No further timetable for Simmons’ return was announced.
