Shortstop Andrelton Simmons was traded to the Angels this past offseason from the Braves. Although he may have left the club who drafted him, he did bring his glove with him to Anaheim.
Simmons continues to amaze fans in attendance with spectacular plays like the one below.

There aren’t many modern day players who are so smooth in the field, and that also have the arm to back it up. Simmons dazzled the crowd as he ranged over, scooped up the ball with his bare hand, stepped on the back, and threw a laser to the first baseman. Doing this all in such a nonchalant motion.
The 26-year old shortstop has only been in the league since 2012, but has made a huge impact defensively for the teams he has been on. With the Braves, Simmons managed to win the Gold Glove (2012, 2013) along with the highly praised Platinum Glove (2013) in his respective position.
Fans will get to see and enjoy plenty more from the shortstop. Although Simmons may not be the league's best hitter, his defensive stature is going to keep him playing for a long time.
