News: Simon lost a third straight start Wednesday for the first time in his career despite limiting Arizona to two runs in seven innings. Impact: Simon hasn't been completely awful in his three straight losses, giving up seven earned runs in 16 1-3 innings, but the Reds have backed him with two runs of support in that span.(STATS, 6:07pm)

News: Simon (12-6) took a tough-luck loss Wednesday afternoon, allowing six hits, two earned runs and a walk with two strikeouts over seven innings. Impact: Simon has run into a bit of a rough patch of late, losing three straight starts despite not allowing more than three earned runs in any of those outings. He's only allowed more than three earned runs twice this season back in May, although his 4.36 FIP suggests that his 2.84 ERA may not necessarily be sustainable for much longer. Wednesday's start also brought Big Pasta's innings total up to 133 on the season, which is just two outs short of his career-high set back in 2011 with the Orioles. Fatigue may not yet be a concern for Simon and his 6-foot-6, 265 pound frame, but it's definitely a factor to monitor down the stretch, especially if the Reds find themselves in the playoff hunt. Simon will take the hill in search of his first win since July 9 next Monday against the Indians.(RotoWire, )

News: Simon was charged with three runs on nine hits, walking two and striking out three while lasting just 4.1 innings in a 4-1 loss to the Nationals on Friday night. Impact: Simon (12-5, 2.86 ERA) had a string of eight consecutive quality starts snapped last time out, and he wasn't particularly sharp in this one, needing 89 pitches (59 for strikes) to record just 13 outs. His strand rate and rather pedestrian strikeout rate suggest some regression may be expected so his next start, at home against Arizona, may help define expectations for his fantasy owners going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Simon suffered a rare defeat Saturday. Impact: Simon fell to 12-4 this year and 0-3 in seven games, including four starts, against the Yankees. The right-hander allowed four runs - two earned - and five hits in five innings, the first time he failed to finish six innings since going 3 2-3 in a 6-3 loss at Dodger Stadium on May 27. He went 6-0 with a 2.47 ERA in his next eight starts.(STATS, 5:42pm)
Sat. July 19, 2014
News: Simon was charged with four runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk over five innings in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday. He struck out four. Impact: Simon's streak of eight consecutive quality starts came to an end Saturday, but it was by no means a terrible outing for the first-time All-Star. He allowed just six baserunners in his five innings, and only one of the hits against him went for extra bases -- the solo homer by Carlos Beltran in the second inning. That said, Simon's bloated strand rate and modest strikeout rate suggests at least a slight regression is likely in store in the second half.(RotoWire, )

News: The Cincinnati Reds said on Sunday that Simon has been added to the National League team for Tuesday's All-Star game. This is Simon's first All-Star game. Impact: Simon (12-3), who was the first NL pitcher to reach 12 wins is tied with St. Louis' Adam Wainwright for the league lead. Simon joins fellow Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto, left-hander Aroldis Chapman, third baseman Todd Frazier and catcher Devin Mesoraco on the NL team. (STATS, 2:35pm)
