Reds | Michael Lorenzen activated from DL

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 12:01:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, June 22. In a corresponding move, SP Alfredo Simon (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL.

Fantasy Tip: Lorenzen is a potential grab in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but keep your expectations in check. His rookie season left a lot to be desired (5.40 ERA, 1.66 ERA and 6.6 K/9 through 113 1/3 innings). Simon should be replaced in all fantasy formats.

Reds | Alfredo Simon loses again

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 22:20:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon allowed three runs on five hits in one inning against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, June 15. The loss dropped Simon to 2-7 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Making his first appearance since being removed from the rotation, Simon got through the 12th unscathed but couldn't register a single out in the 13th, allowing three runs after the Reds had taken a 8-6 lead. It's just another failure in a season full of them for Simon. He has zero fantasy value.

Reds | Daniel Wright to draw the start

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 19:20:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Daniel Wright will start against the Atlanta Braves Monday, June 13, taking SP Alfredo Simon's turn in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Wright has made one start and three appearances, posting a 7.20 ERA. He doesn't need to be on the fantasy radar.

Reds | Alfredo Simon relegated to the bullpen

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 16:21:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon has been removed from the starting rotation and will pitch out of the bullpen. SPs Daniel Wright, Josh Smith and Cody Reed are all potential candidates to start against the Atlanta Braves Monday, June 13, in place of Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Simon shouldn't have been owned in any fantasy format to begin with, but he can officially be replaced now. Homer Bailey, Raisel Iglesias and Michael Lorenzen are all working their way back from injuries, so whoever starts Monday is likely not going to have lasting value.

Reds | Alfredo Simon ejected

Sat, 28 May 2016 18:37:54 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon was tossed for hitting Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson Saturday, May 28. He allowed two earned runs on three hits over four innings before being ejected.

Fantasy Tip: Simon owns an ugly 9.60 ERA, and as soon as Cincinnati has some of its other starters back from injury, Simon will likely be out of a starting spot.

Reds | Alfredo Simon torched by Indians

Tue, 17 May 2016 19:56:14 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon had a night to forget in his start Tuesday, May 17, against the Cleveland Indians. He lasted just 4 1/3 innings, yielding 10 runs on 14 hits. He also walked one and struck out two.

Fantasy Tip: Yikes. For owners in deep leagues that were still holding onto Simon for whatever reason, you might want to reconsider that. Simon holds absolutely zero value, pitching for one of the worst teams in all of baseball -- and one that also plays in a hitter-friendly home park. He now has a disastrous 10.34 ERA this season.

Reds | Alfredo Simon takes third loss

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:59:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon dropped to 0-3 on the year in a 5-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, April 30. Simon allowed three runs in over six innings, walked four and struck out four.

Fantasy Tip: Simon's ERA dropped from 16.39 to 13.50, which means he's still not out of the woods yet for fantasy players. Not only does Simon not have a victory, he has gotten off to a subpar start. Leave him off your roster until Simon stabilizes further.

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.

Reds | Alfredo Simon scratched Tuesday

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.
