Angels, minus Simmons, take another crack at Twins

Other than Mike Trout, shortstop Andrelton Simmons is probably more valuable to the Los Angeles Angels than anybody on the club. However, the Angels will have to figure out a way to get by without the four-time Gold Glove winner for what could be two to three months.

Simmons sustained a Grade 3 sprain to his left ankle on Monday, hitting the first base bag awkwardly as he lunged to beat out a grounder. A Grade 3 sprain typically requires eight to 12 weeks of recovery time, but he is scheduled to see a specialist Wednesday in an effort to get a more definitive timetable.

When the Angels play host to the Twins on Wednesday night, Los Angeles will have a variety of players to choose from to play shortstop. David Fletcher got the nod on Tuesday in the Angels' 8-3 loss to Minnesota, and he went 3-for-3 with a walk.
