Tigers | Alfredo Simon set to start Thursday

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:40:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon (groin) is set to face the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, July 30, after leaving his last start over the weekend early with a groin strain.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been very inconsistent this year with a 4.46 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 19 starts, and he's allowed at least four earned runs in six of his last seven starts. Coming off an abbreviated outing due to injury, he's a very poor choice as one of your FantasyScore pitchers tomorrow.

Tigers | Detroit making impending FAs available

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:25:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila, SP Alfredo Simon and OF Rajai Davis could be moved before the trade deadline since they will become free agents after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been regulars for the Tigers this season but could be moved for the right offer. Their fantasy value will be determined by which team they play for and the role on the team.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon to work on bike

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:33:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon (groin), who left his start Saturday, July 25, with a slight groin injury, will work on a bike instead of jogging as he prepares for his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) allowed at least four earned runs in all but his latest start over the weekend in the month of July. That means he's a bad option on FantasyScore his next time out, especially coming off an injury.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon in a rut

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:17:14 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon allowed five runs and six hits while walking three and striking out five in 6 1/3 innings Thursday, June 25, and he has given up 12 runs in his last nine innings. Simon said he felt fine in his outing yesterday compared to his last start.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is sporting a 3.57 ERA and 1.27 WHIP while striking out only 6.6 per nine innings over 14 starts (85 2/3 innings) this season. He was due for some correction to his line after a very strong start to the year, and he's now allowed at least four earned runs in three of his five starts in June. Consider Simon strictly a matchup play on FantasyScore when facing a favorable team in a pitching-friendly environment.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon activated

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 12:57:08 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon has been activated from the bereavement list Tuesday, June 2, and is scheduled to start against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has done well for himself so far this season, tallying a 5-2 record with a 2.67 ERA through nine starts. He has a favorable matchup against the A's, and is a good start on FantasyScore tonight.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon scratched Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 10:29:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon was scratched from his outing against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, May 27, to be with his ailing father. He was placed on the bereavement list, and the Tigers will recall SP Kyle Ryan from Class AAA Toledo to make the spot start. However, Ryan may not make it to the game on time, so Detroit may be forced to go with a reliever to start the game. Ryan was 0-5 with a 4.67 ERA for the Mud Hens.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Simon ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will be able to make his next start. Stay tuned. At FantasyScore, it may be a sneaky move now to stack some Oakland hitters in your daily lineups against whoever starts for the Tigers tonight.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon gets untracked

Tue, 12 May 2015 21:38:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon allowed a run and six hits with just one walk and six strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday, May 12, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Simon posted his first quality start since April 25, the date he recorded his last start. At $5,200 (or 10.4% of cap) he is a decent mid-level FantasyScore option, especially if he starts getting some better run support.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon continues strong season

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 19:02:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon improved to 4-0 with a win over the Cleveland Indians Saturday, April 25, allowing one run on six hits in 6 2/3 innings and lowering his ERA to 1.65.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) doesn't strike out a lot of hitters and isn't going to be able to continue this torrid pace forever, but while he is dealing on the mound, he can offer solid production for a great price at FantasyScore.
