Braves' Lucas Sims: Forgotten prospect thriving at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims, 23, has a 3.94 ERA and 81:29 K:BB in 80 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett.

Once a highly touted phenom, Sims is now an afterthought in the stocked Braves farm system. Still, opposing batters are hitting just .224 against him in 2017, and he is fanning more than a batter per inning. A red flag is that he's allowed a staggering 14 home runs this season, which is tied for second most in the International League. Nevertheless, with Sean Newcomb now in the big leagues, Sims could be the next man up for Atlanta.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

The right-hander has lost his once promising prospect stock, having put together ERAs no lower than 4.20 over his last three combined minor league seasons. The 22-year-old will try to put the pieces together during his second Gwinnett go-around.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Added to 40-man roster Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sims was added to the Braves' 40-man roster on Friday.

The 22-year-old had a rough stint with Triple-A Gwinnett, but his 2.67 ERA and 10.0 K/9 at the Double-A level opened some eyes in the organization, leading Atlanta to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Sims' nasty fastball/curveball combination could allow him to dominate in a high-leverage role if the Braves decide to pull the plug on developing him as a starter in 2017.
