Lucas Sims making 'progress' with command
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After opening the year as a reliever, Braves' 2012 first-round pick Lucas Sims has gone 5-3 with a 3.17 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and .227 opponents' batting average in 12 starts for Class A Rome. Overall, he is 6-4 with a 3.17 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 82 1/3 innings.

"I'm loving it so far, and I'm learning a lot," Sims said, per MLB.com. "My goal is to make progress every time I go out there. I've improved my command -- that's been the biggest thing I've accomplished so far this season."

Sims appears overly happy about his progress with his command. He's walked 35 batters in 22 outings (12 starts).

"The times I've struggled have happened because of walks, which seem to come around and bite you in the butt," he said. "I've been trying to eliminate those while filling up the zone with all three pitches."

Sims to open at Class A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
MLB.com reports Braves 2012 first-round pick, pitcher Lucas Sims, is expected to start the year at Class A Rome, according to assistant general manager and director of player development Bruce Manno. "I think he's going to be real good for us, but with any young pitcher, it takes time," Manno said. "It takes time to develop. So that's something that we'll get a little better feel for going into spring training and so forth. We're excited with the skill level that he brought. I think for right now, I think we'd say his opportunity may come at [low Class A]. And then again, that depends on how far along we think he is during our camp."
