Braves' Lucas Sims: Battling home run woes since promotion to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims, 22, has a 4.91 ERA and 25:8 K:BB through 22 innings since being promoted to Triple-A

Sims has been snake-bitten by the home run ball at this level, surrendering four home runs in four starts. Still, he has been otherwise effective, including averaging more than a strikeout per inning.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sims has been promoted to Triple-A Gwinnett, where he made his debut Saturday night, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Sims dominated at Double-A to open the year, striking out 26 batters while allowing just seven hits (albeit with 10 walks) over 14.2 innings. In his Triple-A start, he allowed two runs over five innings, giving up three hits and four walks while striking out four. Unfortunately for Sims, the walks are a feature and not a bug, so enthusiasm for his strikeout potential has to be tempered some.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Wildly effective in first two starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas Sims , 21, has a 3.00 ERA and 16:7 K:BB ratio through nine innings for Double-A Mississippi.

The former first-rounder has seen an uptick in strikeouts since an abysmal 2014 campaign. Still, control remains a concern, as he walked 54 batters in 92.2 innings last year. Strikeout stuff is difficult to come by, though, so Sims remains a high-risk, high-reward prospect for the Atlanta Braves .

Braves' Lucas Sims: Assigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas Sims was assigned to minor league camp Friday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sims held his own at Double-A last season, and that's where he could end up beginning 2016 after posting a 3.40 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in nine 2015 starts.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Will make Grapefruit League start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas Sims will start Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies, MLB.com reports.

He's not a candidate to start the year in the Atlanta Braves ' rotation, but Friday will serve as a sort of audition for a possible in-season promotion to the big club. Sims may pitch in relief during the second turn in the rotation this spring, but will eventually transition to the minor league side. The right-hander turned in a 3.40 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in nine starts after making the jump to Double-A last year despite issuing 29 free passes in 47.2 innings.
