Alex Avila on Tigers RHP Alfredo Simon: 'He's got nasty stuff'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Although pitchers tend to be ahead of hitters early in spring, teammates of Tigers right-hander Alfredo Simon have been impressed by his stuff thus far, per the Detroit Free Press on Thursday.

"He's got nasty stuff," catcher Alex Avila said. "It wasn't just from catching him today noticing that -- it was catching him from his first bullpen sessions and watching video.

"He's got nasty, electric stuff, and with him, it's always about being able to throw it for strikes, and today, he looked good. It looks like he's getting ready for the season."

Simon was acquired via trade from Cincinnati in December. He is ahead of most pitchers in camp based on his pitch-count. He tossed 75 pitches during Wednesday's bullpen session, most by any Detroit pitcher thus far this spring.

"I just try to keep my arm ready to go," Simon said. "That's why I throw so many pitches, because I try to throw to make my arm stronger to make it feel like a normal thing."

Rival execs say Reds willing to entertain offers for starters
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rival executives say the Reds are "listening" to what teams may offer for certain members of their starting rotation, reports CBS Sports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Mike Leake and Alfredo Simon all are eligible for free agency after the 2015 season, though it's unlikely the team would trade its ace, Cueto, the report said.

Heyman noted that "Latos recent history of injuries might limit his value, Leake has a decent pay day coming as a fifth-year arbitration eligible player and Simon wasn't as good in the second half after a big beginning last year. So none of those pitchers would bring anything close to the kind of haul Cueto could potentially bring."
