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.
