ALFREDO SIMON RUMORS

Post Winter-Meetings Outlook: Cincinatti Reds

Don’t be fooled by what seems like a fire-sale, as the Reds are still in the middle of the division race too. Shipping off Alfredo Simon (15-10, 3.44 ERA) and Mat Latos (5-5, 3.25 ERA) may seem like the Reds are giving up on 2015, but it’s quite the opposite. They are simply dealing from an area of strength. First of all, Simon is 33 years old, and yes he was an All-Star in 2014...

Trades: Cincinnati Reds receive: SS Eugenio Suarez SP Jonathan Crawford (Minors) Detroit Tigers receive: SP Alfredo...

By trading Latos and Simon, Reds create flexibility for one more run

After the Reds traded Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon on Thursday, you might wonder if general manager Walt Jocketty is beginning a rebuilding project in Cincinnati. At the end of July and when the Reds were officially eliminated from playoff contention, I advocated this team trading off some pieces to get younger and more players under club control, rather than making one last run...

Tigers make Winter Meetings splash, getting Yoenis Cespedes and Alfredo Simon

Sometimes, there’s a reason baseball trade rumors just won’t die. They just need time to become true. Ever since the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez and announced he would play left field, Yoenis Cespedes became the odd man out of the Boston outfield. Actually, he was probably on the outside looking in before Ramirez was signed, as the Red Sox roster was loaded with outfielders...
