Andrelton Simmons Has Just Hit Puberty

smmons

Andrelton Simmons has admitted in a NotGraphs semi-exclusive that he has just hit puberty.

As we all know from experience, that journey can lead to all sorts of interesting places.

Will Simmons enjoy himself and the creature comforts?

If so, he’ll probably need to move back to the mound and work on a trick delivery.

Will he be a workout warrior?

If so, he may need to move down the defensive spectrum to accommodate.

If the author’s experience means anything, it will be awkward, lengthy, trying, and ultimately very embarrassing. We wish Simmons the best of luck.

I noticed that line in your fangraphs piece on Andrelton. Be a bit of a late bloomer.

A-Rod’s got a nice rack.

Have heard a few young players say this about their even-younger teammates this year. Appears to be the new “growing into my man strength” catch phrase.

I was 98% sure this post would include this:

“I thought *this*(as in the following hyperlink) showed Andrelton…”

…and I’ve forgotten how the href tag works.

I can see the scouting report now: “…Shows potential for a big stick once his body fills out. Really has it where it counts.”
