    Reds' Lucas Sims: Earns relief win

    Lucas Sims (5-2) struck out two in 1.1 perfect innings to earn the win Sunday against the Phillies.Sims was charged with a loss and blown save in his last appearance when he allowed three runs (two earned) in two-thirds of an inning against Atlanta on Wednesday. However, he worked as a middle reliever Sunday and earned his fifth win of the season after he relieved starter Sonny Gray in the bottom of the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has made three appearances since he returned from the injured list, and he's held the opposition scoreless in two of those outings.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Blows save, takes loss

    Lucas Sims (4-2) was charged with a loss and a blown save Wednesday against Atlanta.In the top of the 11th inning, Cincinnati put up a run to take the lead. The team then turned the ball over to Sims in hope that the 27-year-old could close things out, but he instead served up a walkoff three-run homer to Ozzie Albies. The unsuccessful outing will likely hurt Sims' chances of leaping to the front of a closer committee that also includes Heath Hembree and Amir Garrett, and his 5.34 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season don't scream the numbers of a typical closer.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Brought back from IL

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said Lucas Sims (elbow) will be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's game against the Pirates, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.Cincinnati will announce a corresponding transaction shortly before Sunday's 1:10 p.m. ET first pitch. After being sidelined since late June with a right elbow sprain, Sims checked out fine during a five-outing rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville, giving up two earned runs on six hits and three walks across 4.2 innings. Prior to getting shut down with the injury, Sims had factored into the Reds' closing mix, but it's unclear if he'll immediately be thrust back into high-leverage spots out of the bullpen as he returns from the IL.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Closing in on activation

    Lucas Sims (elbow) could be activated from the 10-day injured list as soon as Sunday against the Pirates, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Sims has been on the shelf since late June with an elbow sprain. The right-hander began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on July 27, and he pitched on consecutive days Wednesday and Thursday. So long as he comes out of his latest outing feeling good, he figures to be reinstated as soon as the series finale against Pittsburgh.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Back-to-back outings

    Lucas Sims (elbow) is scheduled to pitch the second of back-to-back days on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, and if all goes well he could be officially back with the big league club over the weekend, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "If it goes well tonight and he recovers well the next couple of days, it'll probably be a tough decision of whether to have him pitch one more time in Triple-A or be active later this weekend," manager David Bell said.The Cincinnati Reds are starting to get reinforcements back from the injured list. Michael Lorenzen just return from his hamstring injury last weekend and converted a save Wednesday, and Sims could be a part of that closing picture again when he returns.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Throwing before Tuesday's game

    Lucas Sims (elbow) was playing catch at Great American Ballpark before Tuesday's game against the Twins after making a couple of appearances on a rehab assignment, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims has made three appearances at Triple-A Louisville, throwing three scoreless innings and striking out three while allowing three hits and three walks.Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell was vague about a potential return date for Sims as well as teammates Nick Senzel and Mike Moustakas. "They're all progressing well, which is the most important thing," Bell said. "But no timetable. I think it's important to keep it that way, and we'll come in one of these days and they'll either be here or on their way. But still kind of on track to get at least a couple of those guys back within the next week, for sure." If you want to read the tea leaves, Moustakas and Senzel remained with Louisville as they began a road trip, whereas Sims stayed close by, perhaps suggesting an earlier return.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: First rehab outing coming Tuesday

    Lucas Sims (elbow) will make his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Sims is ready to begin the final phase of his recovery process from the right elbow sprain that has kept him on the shelf for the past month. He'll likely need to make at least two appearances at Louisville before rejoining the Cincinnati Reds, but once activated, Sims should factor into the late-inning mix for the big club. Before the injury cropped up, Sims registered seven saves in nine chances on the season, but he'll likely be behind Heath Hembree in the bullpen pecking order upon returning.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Beginning rehab next week

    Lucas Sims (elbow) will join Triple-A Louisville for a rehab assignment next week, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.An elbow sprain sent Sims to the injured list June 24 after he'd posted a 5.02 ERA and 44:15 K:BB in 28.2 innings of relief. The righty had settled into a closing role prior to the injury, though he may yield such responsibilities to Tejay Antone (forearm) once the latter ultimately returns from the injured list. It's unclear how much rehab work Sims will require, but an activation around the start of August still appears realistic.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Won't return before August

    Lucas Sims (elbow) isn't expected to return before August, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Sims has been out with a sprained elbow since late June. The injury was originally expected to cost him three or four weeks, but it now looks likely to keep him out for closer to six. He reportedly hasn't suffered a setback, however, so it's possible the initial timeline was simply overly optimistic.

    Reds' Lucas Sims: Out until late July

It's unclear if Sims has resumed throwing since landing on the shelf.
