Manager not worried about Alfredo Simon's struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Reds All-Star pitcher Alfredo Simon has struggled out of the break, going 0-4 with a 4.78 ERA in five second-half starts. Though, manager Bryan Price is not worried about Simon's struggles.

"From a technical standpoint, he's not getting out front where he's creating a good downward plane, working the ball to the bottom of the zone," Price said, per MLB.com. "He's not a big strikeout pitcher; he's a good sinker and early-contact ground-ball pitcher who can strike some guys out. But he's pitching behind more and he's elevating a lot more pitches.

"This is the first time he's trying to go start-to-finish in the Major League Baseball season, so a possibility of fatigue, as long as he doesn't pitch well, will be a talking point. ... The way I see it is as comparable to anybody else on our team, where there's going to be an ebb and flow to the season. ... I'm confident that this will be a stretch that we'll look back on and say it was his rough patch of the season, but he finished strong."

Time to start showing more faith in Alfredo Simon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon was good enough again Wednesday at Pittsburgh to earn his four straight win in June and 10th win on the season. It's probably time for Fantasy owners to start trusting Simon a little more than we have, as he's being started in just 69 percent of Fantasy leagues.

Simon has had just one week this season with less than 13 Fantasy points. In fact, in Head-to-Head leagues he's the highest-scoring relief pitcher with 249 points. He's also a top 20 starting pitcher in points and Rotisserie formats.

If you think Simon's 10 wins have been aided by strong run support, then you would be wrong. His Run Support Average (per ESPN) is just 3.79, which puts him 69th among qualified starters. He's getting less run support than the likes of Chris Tillman, Ricky Nolasco and Kevin Correia.

Simon might not be a great strikeout pitcher, but he's yielding just 7.7 hits per nine innings and walking just 2.2 batters per nine. He's giving up a lot of home runs, but he's not compounding the problem with walks. 

Perhaps there is more room for Simon to regress than progress, but he's still turned into a reliable Fantasy arm, especially in Head-to-Head formats where he has relief-pitcher eligibility.


Alfredo Simon gives up three runs in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon picked up a win Wednesday after giving up three earned runs on five hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 11-4 victory over the Pirates.

Simon (10-3) was staked to a 8-0 lead after the third inning and didn't run into much trouble until the seventh, when he put the first three runners on base and surrendered his second run of the game on a groundout. After a weather delay halted the game for 75 mnutes, Simon's night was over, but one of the runners he left on base wound up scoring as well.

Simon owns a 3.05 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 55:22 K:BB ratio in 88 2/3 innings. His next start is scheduled for Monday against the Cubs.
