Marlins | Miami interested in Alfredo Simon

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 17:37:21 -0800

The Miami Marlins have expressed interest in free-agent SP Alfredo Simon (Tigers).

Fantasy Tip: The Marlins are looking for veteran hurlers to round out their starting rotation and Simon could be an inexpensive alternative to fellow free-agent SP Doug Fister (Nationals). The 34-year-old right-hander went 13-12 with a 5.05 ERA in 31 starts for Detroit in 2015 but should only be considered as a late-round flier in single-universe leagues or cavernous mixed formats.

Marlins | Miami considering Doug Fister, Alfredo Simon

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 12:06:26 -0800

The Miami Marlins are considering free-agent SPs Doug Fister (Nationals) and Alfredo Simon (Tigers) as they look to add a veteran starter to their rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Neither pitcher would have much value in a traditional shallow mixed league, but Fister might be worth a look in the late rounds of deep mixed formats as an extreme ground-ball pitcher in a nice pitcher's park. Simon isn't much of a K artist either, but he gives up too much hard contact to be successful for long periods.

Tigers | Team did not know Alfredo Simon was hurt

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 06:50:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon (knee) never told the team he was hurt. Manager Brad Ausmus and head athletic trainer Kevin Rand both said they were surprised to hear Simon say he pitched hurt this season. Rand noted, they were aware Simon had patellar tendinosis. "This is a medical condition that he has," Rand said. "We treated it. We did some different things with him conditioningwise to make it easier for him, and obviously he was able to pitch all season."

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is a free agent this offseason, so where he signs will have a slight impact on his fantasy value for 2016. He is nothing more than an only-format and cavernous mixed league option, though. After all, he finished 2015 with a 13-12 record and 5.05 ERA over 31 starts, and Simon allowed five or more earned runs in 11 of those outings.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon had knee injury

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 12:46:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon (knee) said he has been bothered by a left knee injury all year and wants to remain with the club beyond this season.

Fantasy Tip: The knee injury partially explains Simon's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) ineffectiveness for much of the season. He will finish the year with a 13-12 record and 5.05 ERA over 31 starts, with 201 hits allowed over 187 innings. Simon allowed five or more earned runs in 11 of those outings.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon rocked Sunday

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 15:42:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon allowed eight runs and 13 hits in 4 1/3 innings in a 10-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) fell to 13-10 overall. It has been an up-and-down season for Simon, who likely will have a new destination in 2016. The best thing to do for Simon is leave him on the bench.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon struggles Thursday

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 19:04:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon allowed five runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cleveland Indians Thursday, Sept. 10, with three walks and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has allowed five or more runs in three of his last four starts and is not a great FantasyScore starting option. His next start will come Tuesday, Sept. 15, against the Minnesota Twins.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon strong in shutout

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 04:49:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon twirled seven shutout innings and allowed only two hits in a 6-0 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: To say Simon ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has been erratic this season is hitting it on the head. Simon started off strong and then dropped like a stalled rocket. His ups and downs are still far too close together to truly recommend him, but you can't deny this was a great performance.

Indians | Yan Gomes not in starting lineup Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 14:21:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not starting Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Detroit Tigers. C Roberto Perez is in Gomes' place and hitting eighth against Tigers SP Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has no hits in seven career at-bats against Simon, which is why the switch is likely occurring. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has a .204 batting average against the right, so he carries little FantasyScore value.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon hurls gem Thursday

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 19:25:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon tossed a one-hit shutout against the Texas Rangers Thursday, Aug. 20, with two walks and five strikeouts. The only hit he allowed was a two-out single in the fifth inning for 2B Rougned Odor.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to being Simon's ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) first career shutout, it was also his first career complete game. However, he had allowed 47 runs in his previous 51 2/3 innings, so it will be difficult to rely on him as a FantasyScore option.

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.
