Andrelton Simmons Has Just Hit Puberty


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.
