Simon dominates Dodgers with eight strong

CINCINNATI -- Back in Spring Training, the Reds tabbed reliever Alfredo Simon to step into the rotation when Mat Latos was injured. It seemed, at first, as though Simon's assignment was temporary.
As it would happen, Latos had a couple of setbacks and Simon thrived as a starter. Once Latos is likely activated on Saturday, all signs point to Simon remaining in the rotation and Tony Cingrani coming out.
In a 4-1 Reds win over the Dodgers on Thursday, Simon only made that decision look clearer. While tying his career high of eight innings pitched, he gave up one earned run and seven hits with no walks, one hit batter and five strikeouts.
