Braves' Lucas Sims: Gets transferred to Double-A Mississippi
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sims has been transferred back to Double-A Mississippi on Friday, Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network reports.

The 22-year-old was having a rough time with Triple-A Gwinnett, posting a 2-6 record with a 7.56 ERA in 50 innings of work. He had given up 37 walks and 12 home runs during his time with the club, and was transferred back to Mississippi as Chris Ellis took his place. Sims will have more chances to compete at the next level, but for now he will have to improve upon his command and inability to get opposing hitters to hit the ball on the ground.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Struggling mightily at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims, 22, has a 6.80 ERA and 54:34 K:BB through 46.1 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett.

Strikeouts aside, Sims has been awful since being promoted. He has allowed 11 home runs in 10 outings. An inability to keep the ball on the ground will only further serve to hurt him as he approaches the big leagues. He has also walked at least three batters in each of the last six games. Sims still has time to right the ship, but he has a ton of kinks to work out.

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 .
