Simon threw his third straight quality start in Latos' stead Friday to beat the Chicago Cubs 4-1 before a crowd of 28,649 on a sunny, cold day at Wrigley Field. Simon, 2-1, went six-plus...

Simon showing he can be a starter

Alfredo Simon has been saying since the start of spring training that he prefers starting to relieving, and through two starts with the Reds this season, he's shown he's up to the task. Simon was the hard-luck loser in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Rays at Great American Ball Park, surrendering just a second-inning home run to James Loney to "earn" the loss. ...

Alfredo Simon helps Reds avoid sweep in 2-1 win

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Alfredo Simon sits in the bullpen during the season when games begin, daydreaming about throwing the first pitch, starting the game.

Alfredo Simon Getting a Payday

Alfredo Simon was acquitted of an involuntary murder charge in the Dominican Republic.As you probably remember, Simon was accused of shooting a man during a New Year's Eve celebration about 11 months ago. At the time, I thought that was the last we would see of Simon in an Oriole uniform. Evidently, I was wrong as he appeared in 23 games for Baltimore in 2011 (including 16 starts...
