News: Simon pitched well in a no-decision Monday, going seven shutout innings against the Cubs. Impact: Simon allowed just five hits in the outing, but the offense was nowhere to be found for the Reds. The veteran righty has allowed just two runs in his last 14 innings after allowing six runs in four innings in his first start of the month. Simon next takes the mound this weekend against the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )

News: Simon struck out five and walked three while giving up two runs on five hits over seven innings to earn his 14th win of the season against the Cards on Wednesday. Impact: While Simon has struggled in recent weeks, the Reds are still believed to be considering him for a rotation spot again in 2015. The start against the Cards -- a club pursuing another NL Central crown -- was impressive Wednesday, and he'll take his next two turns on the road against the Cubs on Monday before another matchup with St. Louis on Sept. 21.(RotoWire, )

News: Reds manager Bryan Price envisions Simon starting again in 2015 despite the right-hander's second-half struggles. "I don't think there's any reason not to see [Simon] as a starter," Price said. "I know the second half hasn't been nearly as good. We really went into this as a guy that he was going to be a stop-gap this year until [Mat] Latos got back. ... Now [Simon] has 13 wins, he's an All-Star, he's shown some durability. ... So I would think that going into '15, you'll be seeing him as a starter." Impact: The Reds are going to have to make some hard decisions following the 2015 season about their rotation, with Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos and Mike Leake all able to walk after the season. It's possible that one of those three could get traded this offseason, which would ensure a spot for Simon.(RotoWire, )

News: Simon labored through four innings in Friday's loss to the Mets, allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out five. Impact: After performing at an All-Star level during the season's first four months, Simon has taken a step back since the beginning of August. Over his last seven outings, the 33-year-old hurler has posted a 5.87 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 38.1 innings. Simon will be back at it Wednesday against the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )
