Orioles Dominican pitcher Alfredo Simon expected to be released

Baltimore Orioles reliever Alfredo Simon is expected to be released within the next 10 days, this according to Brittany Ghiroli and  Simon is facing involuntary manslaughter charges after someone was shot at a New Year's Eve party he was attending in Luperon, Dominican Republic.  Alfredo is from nearby Santiago, DR.

The Dominican Baseball Guy first blogged on this incident here.  The Orioles placed Simon on the restricted list and they do not know if or when he will join the team this year.  If he is found innocent hopefully he can rejoin the Orioles or some other team later this year, because he still has a promising career ahead of him.
