Reds to use Simon as starter
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 10:00 AM
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Alfredo Simon has spent most of his major league career as a reliever.
He's going to get a chance to be a starter for the Cincinnati Reds at the start of spring training.
Mat Latos has been slowed by knee surgery, so manager Bryan Price has decided to use Simon as a starter during spring training. The idea is to get him ready to pitch more innings in case he's needed when the season begins.
Latos had minor surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee when camp opened. He's making good progress, but the injury left him behind in his throwing program.
Simon made 16 starts for Baltimore in 2011 and welcomes the chance to move into a starter's role, even if it's only temporary.
