Andrelton Simmons has been on the disabled list since breaking his hand in July, but he was cleared Friday night to resume all baseball related activities by Dr. Gary Laurie in his road to rejoin the Atlanta Braves, braves.com reports.
“It was a big relief,” Simmons said. “I’ve been getting stalled so much and I was ready to do stuff. I understand why they were trying to be careful. But me being me, I’m ready to go.”
Laurie will examine Simmons again on Sunday, and if all goes well, he will be begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday. The destination of said rehab is not clear at the moment, but Simmons will go either Single-A Rome or Advanced-A Lynchburg. Both teams will be in their respective playoffs.
