Scouting Report / Bio: Simons had a horrific season in 2006, compiling a 6.29 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP.  One of the biggest problems Simons faced in 06 was his loss of command, which had previously been Simons' calling card and best attribute.  He throws a 88-90 mph fastball, a slider and a changeup.  Simons will likely assume a relief role in 2007 in an attempt to regain his prospect status.

Future Outlook: Too early to tell--- also too early to give up on him, but he profiles as a fringy middle reliever.
