Simmons remains sidelined by a ankle injury. While he worked out on Monday eyeing a return to the lineup on Tuesday the Braves will instead give him another day of rest.
Once again, Emilio Bonifacio will start at SS tonight. No Andrelton Simmons. #Braves

For now Emilio Bonifacio will see time at shortstop.
In 107 games this season Simmons is hitting .249/.297/.340 with five home runs and 36 RBI.
