|Tigers | Alfredo Simon in a rut|
Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:17:14 -0700
Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon allowed five runs and six hits while walking three and striking out five in 6 1/3 innings Thursday, June 25, and he has given up 12 runs in his last nine innings. Simon said he felt fine in his outing yesterday compared to his last start.
Fantasy Tip: Simon ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is sporting a 3.57 ERA and 1.27 WHIP while striking out only 6.6 per nine innings over 14 starts (85 2/3 innings) this season. He was due for some correction to his line after a very strong start to the year, and he's now allowed at least four earned runs in three of his five starts in June. Consider Simon strictly a matchup play on FantasyScore when facing a favorable team in a pitching-friendly environment.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has done well for himself so far this season, tallying a 5-2 record with a 2.67 ERA through nine starts. He has a favorable matchup against the A's, and is a good start on FantasyScore tonight.

|Tigers | Alfredo Simon scratched Wednesday|
Wed, 27 May 2015 10:29:29 -0700
Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon was scratched from his outing against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, May 27, to be with his ailing father. He was placed on the bereavement list, and the Tigers will recall SP Kyle Ryan from Class AAA Toledo to make the spot start. However, Ryan may not make it to the game on time, so Detroit may be forced to go with a reliever to start the game. Ryan was 0-5 with a 4.67 ERA for the Mud Hens.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Simon ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will be able to make his next start. Stay tuned. At FantasyScore, it may be a sneaky move now to stack some Oakland hitters in your daily lineups against whoever starts for the Tigers tonight.

|Tigers | Alfredo Simon gets untracked|
Tue, 12 May 2015 21:38:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Simon posted his first quality start since April 25, the date he recorded his last start. At $5,200 (or 10.4% of cap) he is a decent mid-level FantasyScore option, especially if he starts getting some better run support.

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 19:02:13 -0700
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.
