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.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon defying age

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 09:49:05 -0700

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.
