Yeah, he's a future Rockie but Tracy Ringolsby writes:

"right-handed pitcher Allan Simpson this spring. Acquired from Seattle in exchange for pitching prospect Chris Buglovsky, Simpson was moving along impressively in the Mariners farm system before stumbling last season.

It wasn't all his fault. Simpson, who went 16-6 with a 2.39 ERA and 243 strikeouts in 203 innings in three minor league seasons before 2003, initially was diagnosed last summer with lupus, a chronic inflammation that can be fatal.

Further testing showed Simpson merely suffered from a circulatory problem in his right index finger. Doctors blamed it on his overuse of a split-fingered fastball, which he quit throwing. This winter, he has compiled a 1.69 ERA in 17 relief appearances for Lara in Venezuela. "
