ALFREDO SIMON RUMORS

Simon, Chamberlain hit hard as Tigers fall to Pirates 9-3

DETROIT (AP) For the second night in a row, Joba Chamberlain got booed by his home fans Wednesday. He can't blame them. Detroit's set-up man allowed an inherited runner to score a key run in Tuesday's 14-inning loss to the Pirates, then allowed three homers in the eighth inning as Pittsburgh won 9-3 on Wednesday. ''I can't be mad, I would have booed me too,'' said the Tigers' set...

Simon, Tigers look to bounce back against Pirates Wednesday

The A.J. Burnett retirement tour was looking more like a victory lap until the 38-year-old recently got a few reminders that maybe his 17th and presumed final season in the majors wouldn't be quite so smooth. He still limited the damage in his two latest outings, but he'd prefer not to run into so much trouble Wednesday night at Comerica Park as the Pittsburgh Pirates look for another...

How the bullpen of the 2015 Detroit Tigers will shake out

It is no secret that the bullpen was by far the most glaring weakness of the Detroit Tigers in 2014 and not much has been done to improve it for the upcoming season. The Tigers acquired Alex Wilson in the Yoenis Cespedes trade and Wilson will be given a shot at a spot in the Tigers bullpen this season. Last year he finished with a 1.91 ERA over 28.1 innings out of Boston’s bullpen...

While the Cincinnati Reds are sending four players to next week's All-Star game, Alfredo Simon somewhat surprisingly isn't one of them. In his first appearance since getting left off the NL roster, Simon looks to win a sixth consecutive decision Wednesday night against the last-place Chicago Cubs.

Simon keeps rolling as Reds beat Brewers

CINCINNATI -- Alfredo Simon was just supposed to be a temporary solution to a starting pitching conundrum at the beginning of spring training. He very well could find himself in Minnesota in a couple of weeks as a National League All-Star.
