Reds manager Bryan Price envisions Simon starting again in 2015 despite the right-hander's second-half struggles. "I don't think there's any reason not to see [Simon] as a starter," Price said. "I know the second half hasn't been nearly as good. We really went into this as a guy that he was going to be a stop-gap this year until [Mat] Latos got back. ... Now [Simon] has 13 wins, he's an All-Star, he's shown some durability. ... So I would think that going into '15, you'll be seeing him as a starter."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Reds fans should appreciate Simon for what he is, and not what they wish he would be. As a late spring training waiver claim in 2012, he has posted two above-average relief seasons for the team. He's not an elite setup guy -- not with that low strikeout rate -- but he ate enough innings to keep the team alive in a number of games where they otherwise would have been sunk with a replacement-level reliever. Some of that was buttressed by a .246 BABIP against, a number that will almost certainly regress to the mean in 2014.

2013

A late waiver claim in April, Simon was limited mostly to middle relief and mop-up duty, but he did a competent job in that capacity. Like a number of other Reds relievers, his ERA was better than the component numbers would suggest, in large part due to avoiding home runs (his two homers allowed gave him a 4.3% HR/FB). A typical pitcher will have a rate closer to 10 percent, but the Reds' relief corps was chock full of guys that beat that level. Either the team is on to something, or some of their relievers like Simon could be feeling the pain of the regression wheel in 2013.

2012

Simon was thrust into a starting role in 2011. Although he struggled at times, he showed he could be a competent fourth starter, with a K/BB over 2.0 and a FIP of 4.47. Simon should have a chance to retain his starting job, but the combination of home park, tough divisional opponents and weak supporting cast make him a volatile option for most formats. It's also worth noting that he'll turn 31 in May, so there's little growth potential here at this stage of his career.

2011

Simon had an impressive turnaround time from Tommy John surgery, returning healthy in spring training after having the surgery in April 2009. Pitching out of the bullpen in 2010, he was effective for a time and even got to spend some time as the closer. After some initial success, the American League caught up to Simon, with him giving up 10 home runs in less than 50 innings. With Koji Uehara back and Mike Gonzalez healthy, it's unlikely that Simon will close again. He was arrested in early January on suspected murder charges and might still be in jail in Puerto Rico by the time spring training opens.

2009

Simon was signed just before September after he spent the summer in the Mexican League when he was released by the Dodgers. He didn't pitch well in the little action he got and it is doubtful he figures into the Orioles' long term plans. Simon will have his work cut out in order to make the roster in spring training.

2006

Simon inherited the closer job at Norwich in midseason, notching saves without pitching all that well. There's no reason to know his name.

2005

Simon was acquired from the Phillies in July when the Giants dealt reliever Felix Rodriguez, and pitched decently at high Single-A in 2004.
