Alfredo Simon strikes out eight in win vs. Cubs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon earned a win Wednesday, surrendering just one earned run on four hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings and striking out eight in his team's 4-1 victory over the Cubs.

Simon (12-3) took the sole lead in wins in the National League with Wednesday's victory, giving up just a third-inning solo home run to pick up his eighth straight quality start. He owns a 2.70 ERA and 75:28 K:BB ratio in 116 2/3 innings heading into the break.


Alfredo Simon secures 11th win in solid outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon put together a quality start Friday night at home against the Brewers, improving to 11-3 on the year. The right-hander permitted two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over 7 1/3 innings of a 4-2 victory.

Over his last three starts, Simon has lowered his ERA from 3.05 to 2.78. He owns a 1.05 WHIP and a 67:26 K:BB ratio over 110 innings. He will make his next start Wednesday at home against the Cubs.

Alfredo Simon tosses seven one-run innings vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon didn't factor into the decision Saturday after giving up just one earned run on three hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out four in his team's 7-3, 11-inning win over the Giants.

Simon was removed after throwing just 80 pitches as his team tried to spark some offense in the top of the eighth inning down 1-0. While the Reds were blanked in the eighth, they were able to take the lead in the ninth and take Simon off the hook for a tough-luck loss. The only run the pitcher allowed came on a groundout in the fifth inning, giving up two straight outings of seven innings and one run.

Simon owns a 2.81 ERA and 64:24 K:BB ratio in 102 2/3 innings. He's slated to take on the Brewers Friday.


Alfredo Simon tosses seven one-run innings vs. Cubs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon didn't factor into Monday's decision after giving up just one earned run on five hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out five in his team's 6-1 win over the Cubs.

Simon sees a string of four straight wins end despite tossing his fifth consecutive quality start. He surrendered an equalizing solo home run in the sixth inning and the offense wasn't able to retake the lead with him on the mound. Simon owns a 2.92 ERA and 60:23 K:BB ratio in 95 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Giants Saturday.


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.


Alfredo Simon lights-out in stifling Dodgers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Surprising Reds reliever-turned-starter Alfredo Simon continued his path to all-star status Thursday afternoon with another fine performance, this time against the Dodgers.

Simon gave up just one run on seven hits in eight innings to raise his record to 9-3. He walked none and fanned five. His lone hiccup was a one-run, three-hit first inning. He retired 11 in a row at one point.

The right-hander has 11 quality starts in 13 outings. He will try to make it 12 of 14 Wednesday against the visiting Reds.


Alfredo Simon secures eighth win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon picked up his eighth win Saturday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits in six innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 6-5 victory over the Phillies.

Simon (8-3) has turned in quality starts in four of his last five outings, and all three runs Saturday were scored via two home runs, one in the second inning and one in the sixth. He owns a 3.15 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 45:19 K:BB ratio in 74 1/3 innings. He doesn't have another start scheduled, but he may end up facing the Dodgers Thursday.


Alfredo Simon tosses quality start in win over D-Backs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon tossed a quality start on Sunday against the Diamondbacks in Arizona, collecting his seventh win of the season. The right-hander permitted three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four in 6 1/3 innings.

Over his last four starts covering 24 2/3 innings, Simon has yielded nine earned runs. He owns a 3.03 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP through his first 11 starts (68 1/3 innings). Following the 4-3 win, he will look for his eighth win Saturday at home against Philadelphia.

Alfredo Simon chased early in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Coming off his best two-start stretch of the season, Red starter Alfredo Simon fell to Earth hard Tuesday, in a 6-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Simon failed to pitch through the sixth inning for just the second time in 10 starts, as he was chased in the fourth inning. He was tagged for five runs in 3 2/3 innings of work, allowing five hits and four walks. Simon struck out just two batters as well, on 70 pitches.

Simon took the loss to drop his record to 6-3, while his ERA jumped to 2.90. He will try to get back on track in his next outing, set for Sunday in Arizona. 


Alfredo Simon tosses seven solid, rain-soaked innings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon's start was interrupted by rain, but it couldn't derail him in a 2-1 win over the Nationals.

Simon pitched on both sides of an hour-long rain delay, ultimately limiting the Nationals to just one run in seven innings of work. He allowed five hits and walked just one batter, while striking out six and throwing 62 of 94 pitches for strikes in the win.

Simon is now 6-2 with a 2.31 ERA through his first nine starts of the season, ranking third in the NL in wins and ninth in ERA. He will try to keep the good times up in his next outing, set for Tuesday against the Dodgers on the road.


Alfredo Simon shuts Phillies down in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon bounced back from his worst start of the season with arguably his best Friday, in a 3-0 win over the Phillies.

Simon shut the Phillies out in 7 2/3 innings of work, allowing just one extra-base hit among five hits. He walked just one batter while striking out a season-high eight, and he also three 78 of 110 pitches for strikes.

Simon pushed his record to 5-2 in his eighth start, while lowering his ERA to 2.45 and his WHIP to 1.03. He will try to keep his strong start up in his next outing, set for Wednesday against the Nationals.  


Rainout allows Reds to shuffle rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) The Reds will shuffle their rotation a bit for Thursday's doubleheader, after Wednesday's game against the Padres was rained out.

Johnny Cueto will start Game 1 of the doubleheader, and the team will call someone up as the 26th man to start the second game, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. That should allow them to push Alfredo Simon's start to Friday and Homer Bailey to Saturday, removing the need for a fill-in Saturday. 

This chance in schedule would likely cost Tony Cingrani a chance to return from the disabled list, as expected, Saturday. 


Alfredo Simon hit hard in second loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon's solid run came to a screeching halt Saturday, in an 11-2 loss to the Rockies.

Simon, who had pitched at least six innings in each of his first six starts, made it through just three innings Saturday. The Rockies jumped on him for three home runs and ended up putting up five runs on eight hits, without a walk or a strikeout in the loss.

Simon had gone five starts without a loss prior to Saturday's, and is now 4-2 with a 2.89 ERA in 43 2/3 innings. He will try to get back on track in his next start, Thursday against the Padres.  


Alfredo Simon goes seven strong in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon went seven innings strong, but failed to factor into the decision on Sunday against the Brewers. He allowed three runs on five hits and one walk in a 4-3 win in 10 innings.

Simon has allowed just five earned runs over his last 13 innings. He owns a 1.99 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP in his first six starts (40 2/3 innings). He'll make his next start Saturday at home against Colorado.

Alfredo Simon delivers quality start vs. Cubs Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) In a game hampered by multiple weather delays Tuesday, Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon surrendered just two earned runs on five hits and two walks in six innings while striking out five in his team's 3-2 win over the Cubs.

Simon (4-1) hasn't given up more than two runs in a start this season while surrendering just 22 hits in 33 2/3 innings. He has posted a 1.60 ERA and 22:11 K:BB ratio in his five starts. His next outing will come Sunday at home against the Brewers.


Reds push starters back a day after rainout


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon will have his start pushed from Monday to Tuesday after Monday's game against the Cubs was rained out. Tony Cingrani will move to Wednesday as a result, with Homer Bailey, Mike Leake and Johnny Cueto also being pushed back a day.

Cubs-Reds rained out Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2014) Monday's game between the Cubs and Reds has been postponed due to rainy conditions.

A makeup date for the postponed game will be announced at a later date. Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija and Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon were scheduled to start Monday's game.


Alfredo Simon wins despite wildness


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon wasn't at his sharpest Wednesday against the Pirates, but still pitched well enough to pick up his third win of the season, 5-2.

Simon fell behind early and needed a rally to pick up the win, after allowing a run each in the first and third innings. He calmed down from that point on, ultimately finishing with two runs allowed on four hits, despite walking five in 6 2/3 innings of work. He struck out four, while throwing 69 of 112 pitches for strikes before he was pulled.

Simon is off to an impressive start to the season through four starts, posting a 1.30 ERA in 27 2/3 innings of work. He has 17 strikeouts and nine walks to go with a 3-1 record heading into his next start, Monday against the Cubs. 


Is there something to Alfredo Simon's success?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) The cutter is a pitch with almost magical properties. When it doesn't cut like it should, it's basically a slow fastball and gets pounded, which is why I cringe whenever an established top-of-the-rotation pitcher adds it to his repertoire. But when a nobody begins to resemble a somebody soon after adding it, that's when I remind myself of its transformative properties, as anyone who owned Esteban Loaiza in 2003 should.

It's why I've finally come around to Jesse Chavez. He added a cutter within the last couple years and is now reaping the benefits. If I'm going to credit it for his success, though, I have to do the same for the Reds' Alfredo Simon, who hasn't been the bat-misser Chavez has in a fill-in role but has dominated in his own right. He added a cutter to his repertoire last year and became a mainstay in the Reds bullpen with a career-best 1.07 WHIP. Now in the starting role, his fastball velocity isn't greatly diminished, and he continues to thrive with that cutter.

The point may be moot in the long run since he's the only choice to forfeit his rotation spot when Mat Latos is ready to return from the DL, but particularly in leagues where starting him at relief pitcher makes a difference, he's a reasonable choice to fill out your pitching staff.


Alfredo Simon tosses another quality start in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon continued his stellar start to the season Friday, earning his second win in taking down the Cubs, 4-1.

Simon tossed six solid innings for his third quality start in a row, allowing just one unearned run on four hits and a pair of walks. He struck out three batters while throwing 61 of 101 pitches for strikes.

Simon is now 2-1 with a miniscule 0.86 ERA through three starts, having allowed just two earned runs in 21 innings of work. He will try to keep his strong play up when he takes the mound next, Wednesday in Pittsburgh. 


Alfredo Simon hard-luck loser against Rays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) Reds starter Alfredo Simon crafted one of the best performances of his career Saturday - and wound up with a loss to Tampa Bay.

Simon was outpitched by Alex Cobb, but that entailed giving up just one run on five hits in eight innings. He walked one and fanned four. His outing was marred only by a second-inning solo home run by James Loney.

The right-hander has been sensational to start the season. He owns a 1.29 ERA and will attempt to maintain that brilliance Friday against the Cubs.


Alfredo Simon goes seven strong innings Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Reds starter Alfredo Simon dominated the Mets Sunday.

Simon gave up just one run over seven innings. After an Ike Davis double in the second inning, Juan Lagares managed to hit a run-scoring single. That was all Simon would give up on the day. He faced the minimum of three batters in three of his seven innings, and didn't run into much trouble throughout the game. 

Though the Reds offense didn't perform particularly well, the team managed to get two runs across the plate, giving Simon his first win of the season. He finished the day allowing four hits and one walk. Simon struck out six batters. His next start will come against the Rays.


Reds still mulling over role for Alfredo Simon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price said he hasn't decided whether pitcher Alfredo Simon will be part of the rotation or bullpen, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Simon is 1-3 with a 4.63 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in six spring starts.
