Michael Howard Simms is a former Major League Baseball outfielder. He played all or part of nine seasons in the majors between 1990 and 1999. Six of those seasons (1990–92 and 1994–96) were spent with the Houston Astros, and three (1997–99) with the Texas Rangers.

Simms was drafted out of Esperanza High School in Anaheim, California by the Astros in 1985. Most of his career highs were set in 1998 for the Rangers, when he batted .296 with 16 home runs and 46 RBI in just 186 at bats. Despite his performance, he played just four games with Texas in 1999 and none in the majors thereafter.
