​After the flurry of offseason moves made by the ​Angels, you have to believe that the Halos are feeling that they could compete in the very tough American League West.

Those chances may take a hit, depending on the MRI results on the left shoulder of Gold Glove shortstop ​Andrelton Simmons


He initially injured his shoulder while diving to his right during Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Athletics. While Simmons thinks he's fine, according to manager Mike Scioscia, an MRI will be taken for precautionary reasons.

Anything more than just a few days rest could be devastating for Los Angeles, who reasonably have high expectations of Simmons. He had a career year in terms of offense and was unsurprisingly superb on defense.

Simmons will no doubt be a huge factor if the Halos end up making the postseason. While Andrelton says he's fine, the Angels will be holding their breath until the MRI results come in.
