Red Reposter - Call your local DJ and ask him to play butt rock

Here is me writing about some things that other people wrote about. "MLB" Mark Sheldon talks up Jose MijaresThe Reds snatched the lefty reliever with a minor-league deal last month. Sheldon draws parallels to the smart under-the-radar acquisitions in recent years of Manny Parra and Alfredo Simon. I'm sympathetic to this outlook. Mijares was a useful left-handed reliever as recently as 2013. He signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox last season, but he opted out in March and didn't pitch professionally again all season for whatever reason. He did pitch really well in the Venezuelan...

The Tigers' rotation is not set for 2015

Surely the Tigers are not expecting Alfredo Simon to hold the fifth spot all season, are they? What is Dave Dombrowski thinking? Could he possibly be content to go into the season with a rotation of David Price, Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez, Shane Greene, and Alfredo Simon? Or is he thinking two or three moves ahead? When the trade for Alfredo Simon was consummated, Dombrowski stressed that he was one of the Tigers' six starters, not five. He may be thinking that Simon and Kyle Lobstein can split duty as the fifth starter, as Rob recently explored. Simon can start against teams with...

Should the Tigers platoon Alfredo Simon with a left-handed starter?

Being selective with Simon's outings could help him be a more effective pitcher in 2015. Alfredo Simon made the National League All-Star team after winning 12 games with a 2.70 ERA in the first half last season. However, Simon's success seemed to be built upon a large amount of good fortune, and his poor second half fell closer to his career norms. After all, he has a 4.05 ERA as a starter and is worth just 1.2 fWAR in 529 1/3 career innings. We have covered Simon extensively since the Tigers acquired him from the Cincinnati Reds in December, in part because there seems to be something that...

Alfredo Simon to triple salary after breakout 2014 season

Alfredo Simon is expected to receive a salary of $ 5.1 million as a starter. He received $1.5 million as a relief pitcher in 2014. Alfredo Simon has been in the major leagues for at least part of the last seven seasons, although he has accrued 5.142 years of major league service time. The 33 year old pitcher from the Dominican Republic has been signed as an amateur free agent, traded, released, signed again, selected in the Rule 5 draft, returned, released, signed and released twice more, placed on waivers, claimed, and finally traded once more, to the Detroit Tigers. In his seven partial...
