Simon (shoulder) is beginning a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Sunday night. It's unclear what role Simon will have upon his return, but the Reds probably will be looking to manage the innings of Brandon Finnegan and Cody Reed soon, among others. So it's not out of the question that Simon will get a few more starts before the end of the season.
Simon (shoulder) has been throwing bullpen sessions while the Reds were traveling the last week, but could throw live batting practice sessions this week, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Simon doesn't really have a spot to return to, at least until an injury occurs or rosters expand in September. The Reds aren't in a hurry to bring him back.
Simon (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday. Simon has been absolutely terrible this season for the Reds, going 2-7 with a 9.45 ERA and 2.06 WHIP. Now he will hit the disabled list and focus on rehabbing his shoulder. However, if the 35-year-old can't improve upon his return, his days with the Reds may be limited.
Simon (shoulder) is not with the Reds for their two-game series in Texas, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Simon instead went to Cincinnati to get further examinations. The team returns home Thursday, but there's a good chance that Simon will go on the DL on Wednesday to make room for the team to activate Michael Lorenzen.
Simon is dealing with a shoulder injury that has seen no improvement despite receiving medication, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Simon most recently pitched Wednesday, giving up five hits and three earned runs during just one inning of relief work. It's unclear if he's headed for a DL stint or a demotion, as the 35-year-old currently sits with a 9.45 ERA and 2.06 WHIP over 53.2 innings.
