Alfredo SimonOrioles pitcher Alfredo Simon is finished with his hearing in the Dominican Republic and is on his way back to the United States, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Simon was placed on the restricted list Sunday night and is expected to make his next start on Friday against Anaheim. 

Simon has yet to be charged with the New Year's Day shooting of his cousin, but he also hasn't been cleared, the paper reports. He could still have to return for another hearing in the future.

Simon could be back in uniform Tuesday in Baltimore.

Before the season, it was uncertain if the Orioles would keep Simon around if he was even able to return to the U.S., but the former reliever has been turned into a starter and has pitched well, allowing five earned runs in 11 2/3 innings in two starts. Overall, he's 2-2 with a 4.36 ERA in 33 innings and nine outings.

If innocent, good for him ... but if guilty, then do the time.

If innocent, he is better than a string of O's starters that have failed (or not produced) in their first taste.

Guys the team has been trumpeting for years ... David Hernandez, Brad Bergesen, Jason Berken, Chris Tillman, Zach Britton, Brian Matusz, Jake Arrieta, etc.
