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.

Alfredo Simon serves up two home runs vs. Indians


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon surrendered four runs (three earned) on six hits and one walk in five innings while striking out three and giving up two home runs in his team's 8-3 loss to the Indians Monday.

Simon is likely to open the season in the team's rotation as ace Mat Latos heals on the disabled list. However, he hasn't been overly impressive this spring, posting a 4.63 ERA and 14:8 K:BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings.


Bryan Price: Alfredo Simon probably to open year as starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Veteran reliever Alfredo Simon has served as a starter only in 2011 with Baltimore, but Bryan Price has announced that he will likely renew that role to open this season with the Reds, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

It remains to be seen how long Simon stays in the rotation upon the return of ace Mat Latos, who is working his way back from offseason knee and elbow surgeries. Latos has returned to game action.

Simon has been a valuable bullpen piece. He owns a 2.79 ERA in 99 games pitched over the last two seasons combined.


Alfredo Simon bounces back in fourth start of spring


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon, who was charged with five runs his last start, bounced back on Thursday against the Dodgers in Cactus League play.

Simon, who is making a strong case to fill in for injured pitcher Mat Latos if necessary, surrendered one run on five hits and no walks while striking out three over 4 1/3 innings pitched. He has allowed six runs over 13 1/3 innings through four starts this spring.

Alfredo Simon tosses three scoreless innings Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon pitched three scoreless innings Monday, allowing no hits and one walk while striking out four in his team's 6-5 loss to the Mariners.

"I did great today," Simon told MLB.com. "All my pitches were working really good. I’m happy to throw three innings. My two-seamer, my changeup and my breaking ball worked good."

Simon is making a strong case to fill in for injured pitcher Mat Latos should he miss the beginning of the regular season. He hasn't given up a single hit in five innings thus far.


Reds avoid arbitration with Alfredo Simon


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The Reds have avoided arbitration with pitcher Alfredo Simon.

Simon is set to make $1.5 million next season. He's coming off a year in which he posted a 2.87 ERA in 87 2/3 innings.


Alfredo Simon Ks six over two innings


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2013) Reds reliever Alfredo Simon struck out all six batters he faced in Monday's series opener against the Braves. He came on in the sixth and threw 29 pitches, 19 for strikes, over his two innings.

Simon has a 4.32 ERA through 12 appearances with 16 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings.

Relievers lock up spots with Reds


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2013) The Reds shored up their bullpen for the start of the season Sunday, providing spots to Manny Parra, Alfredo Simon and J.J. Hoover. All three players are expected to pitch in middle relief.

Reds don't like Alfredo Simon's chances


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2013) The Reds do not expect relief pitcher Alfredo Simon to make the team's opening day roster, MLB.com reports. Simon has not seen a lot of innings this spring and barely pitched for Team Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic.

Simon, 31, does not have any options remaining and must clear waivers if he is going to remain with the Reds.

"Most cases, the WBC doesn't hurt guys," manager Dusty Baker said. "In that part, I think it hurt his progress some by not pitching."


No arbitration for Simon


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(1/31/2013) The Reds signed reliever Alfredo Simon to a one-year deal Thursday, thus avoiding arbitration, according to MLB.com. Simon pitched 61 innings for the Reds last season, posting a 2.66 ERA.
