Braves hold SS Simmons out with jammed right wrist

POSTED: April 10, 2014 7:38 p.m.

ATLANTA — Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons has a jammed right wrist and has been replaced in the starting lineup by Ramiro Pena.

Simmons was listed in Atlanta's original lineup for Thursday night's game against the New York Mets. The Braves say he was hurt in Wednesday night's game and is day to day.

Simmons made a strong defensive play in the second inning when he went to his right to field a grounder by Travis d'Arnaud. Simmons slipped but recovered to throw out d'Arnaud from his knees. In the fifth, Simmons was out at the plate when he collided with d'Arnaud and fell to the ground. He remained in the game.

Pena, who played in seven games at shortstop in 2013, will make his first start of 2014.
