Braves SS Andrelton Simmons on crutches. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said they are hoping he will avoid the disabled list, but his ankle swelled up after he stopped icing it Tuesday night.

The plan was to sit Simmons until after their off day on Thursday and play him on Friday but after seeing him on crutches today, that seems less likely. The thought was he just tweaked the left ankle in the field during Tuesday night's game but it looks like it could be more serious than originally thought. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
