  • WHIP was below 1.00 in first 3 of 4 May Starts


  • Two very bad games. May 10th and May 27th against NL West opponents. Innings pitched below 4. All other games had 7 or more innings
  • 8 hits against the Colorado Rockies on May 10th, outlier (which is 6+)
  • 4 walks against the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 27th, outlier (3.50)
  • 3 Home runs against the Colorado Rockies on May 10th, outlier (2.50). Thin air in Cincinnati?

Revisiting May goals.

  • Keep pitching like this and the bullpen won’t be calling for you. Simon and Cingrani are competing for the 5th spot in the rotation with the return of Mat Latos sometime in the month of May. Simon has two factors into play, he eats a lot of innings up and doesn’t allow a lot of runs in his start, only 7 runs in 5 starts


  • Keep pitching up to 6 innings, can pitch up to 8 innings. Simon has pitched more than 6 innings in each start.
  1. Pitched more than 6 innings in 3 starts, all of them at 7 or more innings
  2. Pitched less than 6 innings in 2 starts, both of them less than 4 innings
  • Allowing 4-5 hits is reasonable for a starter, keep it up. Simon has allowed 4 hits in 3 of 5 starts.
  1. Had allowed only 5 hits in 4 May starts
  2. More than 5 in one May start (May 10th)
  • Allowing runs is something a pitcher does not want to do, but 1-2 should be it. Simon has allowed no more than 2 runs in all of his starts in 2014.
  1. Carried away for Alfredo Simon, Failed.
  2. Only 2 May starts with 2 or less runs allowed
  3. Had 2 May starts that allowed exactly 5 runs
  • Simon in one game allowed 5 walks, which is an outlier to his season. Simon will typically was 1-2 batters in a game and if that pace keeps going
  1. Did indeed walked 1-2 batters in 4 May starts, the first 4 May starts
  • One thing he hasn’t really done is striking batters out. The goal for Simon is to strikeouts 4-5 batters, but he has hit that mark of 4 or more batters 4 out of 5 times so far this season.
  1. Struggled in this category, not even one start had 4-5
  2. Striked out 6 or more batters in 2 May starts
  3. No strikeouts in 2 May starts
  • One thing I do like about Alfredo Simon this season is keeping the ball in the park. Simon has given the long ball shot twice, but only allows it once. Simon doing an excellent job on that.
  1. Simon got carried away, Failed.
  2. No home runs in the May 16th start
  3. Allowed 1 home run in 2 May starts
  4. 2 or more home runs in 2 May starts

SIMON’s goals for the month of June.

  • Two bad starts with less than 4 innings of work is outlier. Don’t let that be a factor. A good start from Alfredo Simon would pitch 6-7 innings/start.
  • Simon usually allow 4-5 hits/start. Has not been lower than 4. Got to have more of those starts instead of the May 10th start.
  • Runs allowed will happen, but no more than 3 in a start. Simon has typically allowed 1-3 runs/start. Has allowed 1-3 runs in 7 starts, no runs in his May 16th start.
  • Walks, no more than 2 in a start. Has allowed more than 2 walks in 4 starts and only had one start in May with more than 2 walks. Less than 2 walks in 6 starts this season.
  • Strikeouts, need more than 2 and have up to 6. Had 2-6 strikeouts in 7 starts.
  • No home runs? 7 home runs in the month of May, 9 overall. His only start without giving a home run was on May 16th.
