MLB Rumors: Chicago Cubs To Trade Veteran Shortstop

The Cubs have had a rough 2022 season, and they are once again going to be sellers at the deadline because of it. Andrelton Simmons is one pending UFA who will likely be dealt because of this.

At this point in Simmons' career, he works best as a depth player. His time in the Windy City hasn't been spectacular, as he has a rough .173 batting average in 34 games on the year. However, his excellent fielding ability and vast experience should still lead teams to call about the veteran shortstop.

Simmons is a four-time Gold Glove Award winner and six-time Fielding Bible Award winner. In 1,225 career games, he has 70 home runs, 444 RBIs, and a .263 batting average.
