Tigers' Alfredo Simon leaves game in 7th with groin strain

However, the Tigers don't believe Simon will see time on the DL. On Saturday afternoon, Alfredo Simon was in the middle of his best start since missing a start on May 27 when he was suddenly placed on the bereavement list. But in the bottom of the seventh with the Tigers in a 5-1 lead, Simon hunched over in pain after a pitch and exited the game soon after with an injury. After the game it was announced that Simon had suffered a groin strain. However, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus stated that Simon is not expected to miss his next start or see time on the disabled list. "I think that was his...

Game 2015.97: Detroit at Boston

I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but if Alfredo Simon gives up less than 4 runs today it will be the first time since a miracle. His ERA over his last 7 games is 8.64, which somehow ranks him behind Verlander, Feliz, and Rondon, who could maybe combine to keep the LL WS team […]

Tigers 5, Mariners 4: Ian Kinsler leads comeback win, Detroit back to .500

The Tigers opened up a pivotal four-game series against the Mariners with a come-from-behind win. DETROIT -- Alfredo Simon did his best to keep the Detroit Tigers out of the game. But Ian Kinsler rewrote the ending with two home runs and some help from James McCann. Joakim Soria then slammed the door to hand the Tigers a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners. Simon was his usual self. Which is to say that he wasn't good at all. After just three innings Simon's pitch count was at 53, the Tigers had trailed 2-1 at one point, and Simon had struck out just one batter. But, per the usual, Simon...

Tigers' Alfredo Simon should be moved to the bullpen

Alfredo Simon has struggled lately as a starting pitcher for the Tigers. He would be much better off working in a relief role. When the Tigers traded Rick Porcello to Boston for Yoenis Cespedes and Alex Wilson, they picked up two very valuable players who have made big contributions to the team during the 2015 season. While Porcello has struggled with the Red Sox, his replacement in Detroit has been entirely inadequate. I am referring to Alfredo Simon, who the Tigers acquired in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds on the same day Porcello was dealt to Boston. Simon was moved from the bullpen...

Analysis: Continued struggles for Alfredo Simon put added pressure on Shane Greene

The Tigers need a win today. That much is true. But they also need Greene to play a key role in that win. MINNEAPOLIS -- Shane Greene has enough riding on his start this afternoon against the Minnesota Twins as it is. He certainly doesn't need any added pressure. But in a way he does have more, thanks to the continued struggles of right-hander Alfredo Simon, who was bombed again Saturday afternoon in a 9-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins. Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski is certain to spend a good chunk of his time over the All-Star break pondering his...

Minnesota Twins 9, Detroit Tigers 5 : Alfredo Simon mauled again

Alfredo Simon dug the Tigers into a deep, dark hole Saturday afternoon, and while the offense continues to roll, another brutal start was too much to overcome. After last night's ninth inning debacle, the Tigers desperately needed a solid start to lift them up. Alfredo Simon buried them instead. The Twins shelled him out of the game with seven runs in less than three innings, and despite the offense putting up a real fight, this one was never really in doubt. Simon has come completely unglued over the past month. Once again his command was awful Saturday afternoon, as he struggled to locate...
