Arbitration: Reds and Alfredo Simon come to terms


The Cincinnati Reds and right handed reliever Alfredo Simon will not be going to arbitration.

Simon, going into his age-32 season, will earn $1.5 million compared to $890,000 in 2013. The righty found great success as a reliever for the Reds after four years in Baltimore, going 9-6 with a 2.78 ERA and a 1.217 WHIP in the past two seasons in Cincinnati.
