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.

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.

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.

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon is 2-0 with a 2.03 ERA in his two starts with the Tigers after a breakout year with the Cincinnati Reds in 2014. He is 17-10 with a 3.35 ERA since the start of last year after going 3-9 with a 5.15 ERA from 2008 through 2013. His average fastball velocity was 93.9 mph, and he ranked 19th in the league in the percentage of fastballs down in the zone in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: Simon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), 34 in early May, has pitched sharp so far in his new digs in Detroit. It'll be very tough for him to match his numbers from a year ago, but he should be serviceable for his fantasy owners, and he's a decent FantasyScore option against the New York Yankees this week. Ride him while he's going well.
