      Tigers SP Alfredo Simon diagnosed with patella tendinosis in left knee

      A day after Tigers starter Alfredo Simon said he pitched hurt all season, Tigers' head trainer Kevin Rand clarified the situation by explaining Simon has patella tendinosis, a chronic knee condition the team knew about before they acquired him in trade, reports Patellar tendonosis is also known as jumper's knee. "If it was an injury, he wouldn't have been pitching with it," Rand said. "If it was a structural injury, he would not have been pitching." Simon had an up and down season, and after Friday's outing, he blamed the inconsistencies on the left knee issue. Specifically, he said it reduced his velocity at times and meant he couldn't keep the ball down with regularity. He's headed to free agency this offseason and this little tiff probably did him more harm than good. He returned to Detroit on Saturday to get a platelet-rich plasma injection, just as he did after pitching for the Reds last season.

      Tigers SP Aldredo Simon suffers 12th loss of the season

      Tigers starting pitcher Alfredo Simon (13-12) gave up two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out one in Friday's loss to the White Sox. Simon had one of his better outings in recent months on Friday, registering just his fifth quality start in 17 tries since July 1. After having a solid but unspectacular first three months of the season, registering a 3.57 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 6.6 K/9, the veteran fell hard during the season's second half with a 6.31 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 4.80 K/9.

      Tigers SP Alfredo Simon gives up four runs in loss to Twins

      Tigers starter Alfredo Simon (13-11) surrendered eight hits, four earned runs and a walk in eight innings in a 6-2 loss to the Twins. He struck out four. Simon actually rebounded nicely from one of his worst starts of the season to post his second-longest outing of 2015. Among the positives for the veteran right-hander on Saturday were the fact that he did not yield any gopher balls and that he only surrendered one walk, while throwing 75 of his 111 pitches for strikes. In spite of the generally strong performance, Simon took the loss, reaching double figures in that category for the second consecutive season. His current 1.47 WHIP is also the third highest of his career, while his 3.37 BB/9 rate is his highest since 2010.

      Tigers' Alfredo Simon gets rocked for eight runs in loss to Royals

      Tigers starter Alfredo Simon allowed 13 hits, three walks and eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings of Sunday's loss to the Royals. He struck out three and three of those hits were home runs. It's the sixth time since July 1 that he has given up at least six runs in a game. It was a forgettable outing for Simon who matched his career high in runs and earned runs (eight for both). And he was just two hits shy of matching his career high (or should we say, career worst) in hits allowed. He allowed the five of the first seven batters he faced to reach base and needed 26 pitches to get out of the first.

      Tigers pitcher Alfredo Simon picks up win Tuesday

      Tigers pitcher Alfredo Simon earned his 13th win of the season Tuesday against the Twins as he allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk over 6 1/3 innings. He also struck out four. Simon has been brutal since July, and he still owns an awful 6.33 ERA in 14 starts since then. The quality start was just Simon's third in that span. His ERA sits at 4.94 as his All-Star appearance last year looks like a one-hit wonder.

      Tigers SP Alfredo Simon blanks Indians over seven strong innings

      Tigers starter Alfredo Simon was excellent in his outing against the Indians on Saturday. The right-hander fired seven shutout innings, allowing two hits and four walks while striking out five. The Tigers went on to win the game 6-0. Simon (12-9, 4.86 ERA) didn't allow his first hit of the game until a single to lead off the sixth inning. The big righty has had a peculiar string of starts lately. Two of his last four outings have been superb, tossing 16 scoreless innings. But those were sandwiched around two starts in which he allowed a total of 14 runs in 9 1/3 innings. Overall, in those four starts, he is 2-2 with a 4.98 ERA.

      Sizzling Jays mash Tigers SP Alfredo Simon for four dingers

      Tigers starter Alfredo Simon has been getting clobbered since mid-June. And he was pitching Sunday on the road against the explosive Blue Jays. It was not a recipe for success. Simon spent much of his afternoon watching baseballs travel over the fence. Toronto slugged four home runs against him. He allowed six runs on five hits in six innings with two walks and two strikeouts. Blasts by Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion got Simon off to a bad start in the first, then taters by Kevin Pillar and Russell Martin added to his misery. Simon has just one quality start over his last six outings. His 5.09 ERA is a season-high.

After the Tigers were able to tie the game in the third inning, Simon gave up two more runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings before finally getting pulled. Simon was coming off a gem his last time out, when he fired a one-hit complete-game shutout against the Rangers.

      Tigers SP Alfredo Simon does about-face in brilliant performance

      Maybe it will be for just one game, but the Alfredo Simon from April and May returned to the mound for the Tigers on Thursday night. Simon tossed a complete game one-hitter at visiting Texas with two walks and five strikeouts. Even including his fine early-season efforts, it was his best performance of the year. The right-hander retired the side in order five times and only a Rougned Odor double in the fifth prevented a no-hitter. Simon raised his record to 11-7 and lowered his ERA to 4.52 after it had nearly doubled since mid-June. He had given up a whopping 47 runs in his previous 51 2/3 innings.

      Tigers SP Alfredo Simon allows four runs in loss to Astros

      Tigers starting pitcher Alfredo Simon didn't have his best stuff on Friday against the Astros. Simon allowed four runs on six hits in the loss. He gave up four walks and managed to strike out just two batters. "He threw a lot of balls," manager Brad Ausmus said, per "It was almost 50-50 balls and strikes, but he somehow seemed for the most part to almost wiggle out of it and really kept us in the ballgame. But his pitch count started climbing because of the balls that he was throwing." With the loss, Simon dropped to 10-7 on the season as his ERA ballooned to 4.84 on the year.
