Cubs | Anthony Rizzo clubs a pair in rout

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 14:45:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo continued to keep pace with a major-league leaders in homers and RBI on Sunday, April 24, blasting a pair of two-run home runs off Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo (eight homers, 21 RBI) is batting only .203 but trails only Bryce Harper (nine, 23) in both power categories, and has five home runs as well as 10 RBI over his last five contests. It's scary to think what he could do if actually catches fire sometime soon, although his home run and RBI production should be enough for owners to overlook the other way when it comes to his early poor batting average.

Reds | Alfredo Simon plays catch Thursday

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 11:19:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon (shoulder) played catch Thursday, April 21, and has shown improvement after being scratched from his start Tuesday, April 19. As of now, he's still listed as the starter for Sunday, April 24, against the Chicago Cubs, but if he is unable to make that assignment, the team would likely recall SP Robert Stephenson to replace him.

Fantasy Tip: Simon enjoyed notable success with the Reds as recent as two seasons ago, but has looked like a different pitcher since, hence why owners should be avoiding him in all leagues until he gets into a groove. He owns a disastrous 12.15 ERA and 2.55 WHIP through his first two starts and one relief appearance. If he is scratched again, Stephenson isn't really worth a look either.

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 08:59:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon (biceps) was scratched from his start Tuesday, April 19, against the Colorado Rockies with biceps tendonitis. SP Robert Stephenson was recalled from Class AAA Louisville to make the start. Simon is expected to take his next turn.

Fantasy Tip: Stephenson made an unimpressive start earlier this year and doesn't have the clout to make a good streamer option today.

Reds | Alfredo Simon to face north siders

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 23:54:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon will take the ball for a road start against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, April 13. He is 4-0 with a 1.66 ERA in 15 career appearances, including five starts, against the Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Simon might be a decent low-end DFS option if he can continue to vex the Cubs. He is worth a look in most NL-only fantasy formats, but avoid him in mixed play.

Reds | Alfredo Simon solid again

Sun, 27 Mar 2016 16:43:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon turned in his second strong start on Sunday, March 27, holding the Los Angeles Dodgers to one run on two hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Simon worked three perfect innings in his spring debut on Tuesday, so it might be time to start paying attention to him as a possible late-round option in deeper mixed leagues. The 34-year-old figures to struggle earning double-digit wins with the rebuilding Reds and isn't going to strike out many batters, but he is only two years removed from an All-Star appearance and could round out a fantasy rotation nicely if he can recapture that form.

Reds | Alfredo Simon solid in his return

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 23:02:04 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon pitched three perfect innings in his Cactus League spring debut Tuesday, March 22, against the Chicago Cubs. He needed just 29 pitches for the outing, and threw another 15 in the bullpen afterwards.

Fantasy Tip: Simon could be a late and welcome addition to the rotation. He is just two years removed from an All-Star season in his first stint with the Reds. He is worth a look in the later rounds in NL-only fantasy play.

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 11:17:25 -0700

Free-agent SP Alfredo Simon (Tigers) signed a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, March 17.

Marlins | Miami looking for more starting pitchers

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 12:40:59 -0800

Free-agent SP Kyle Lohse (Brewers) and SP Alfredo Simon (Tigers) are candidates for the Miami Marlins, but the pitchers may want to wait for major league contract instead of hoping to make a team on a minor league contract.

Fantasy Tip: The Marlins are looking to add depth for their starting rotation, but it is not known if they will be willing to sign a pitcher to a major league contract. Lohse and Simon will be able to find jobs at some point but are not more than AL- or NL-only pitchers depending on where they sign.

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.
