  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Set for season-ending surgery

    Sims will undergo season-ending surgery to address a herniated disc in his back, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims entered the season looking like the favorite to close games for Cincinnati, but he'll finish it with just a single save to his name. Elbow troubles limited him to just six appearances, in which he gave up seven runs in 6.2 frames, before he returned to the injured list with back problems. He attempted to pitch through the issue, but it got bad enough that he was in serious pain and couldn't feel his foot. Undergoing surgery now at least gives him plenty of time to get ready for spring training.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Sims (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. Sims began a throwing program in late May but won't be eligible to rejoin the Reds until at least mid-July after being moved to the 60-day injured list. It's not clear how much progress the right-hander has made in his throwing progression, but Art Warren and Alexis Diaz are the top two closing options in the Reds' bullpen after Tony Santillan (back) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Set to begin throwing program

    Reds manager David Bell said Sims (back) will begin a throwing program Tuesday or Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Since he's a reliever, Sims shouldn't require too extensive of a ramp-up period, but he'll still need to advance from playing catch to throwing off a mound to facing hitters before he's cleared to head out on what should be a brief minor-league rehab assignment. Before lower-back spasms forced him to the 15-day injured list May 12, Sims looked to be near the front of the pecking order for saves out of the Cincinnati bullpen, but it's unclear where he'll stand in the Reds' late-inning plans once he eventually returns. Alexis Diaz, Art Warren and Tony Santillan have all picked up one save apiece since Sims was placed on the IL.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Not yet throwing

    Sims (back) has yet to resume a throwing program and won't return from the 15-day injured list when first eligible May 26, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims was placed on the injured list last week due to a bulging disc in his back and has remained shut down from throwing since landing on the shelf. The 28-year-old is now likely to be out until at least early June, and a specific return timeline is unlikely to come into focus until he's cleared to start a throwing program.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Dealing with bulging disc in back

    Sims is dealing with a bulging disc in his back, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims was diagnosed with low back spasms when he was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, and manager David Bell clarified the nature of the 28-year-old's injury following the move. The right-hander started some light exercises and core strengthening Thursday. Bell said he doesn't have a prediction regarding how long Sims will be sidelined but said that he hasn't heard anyone talk about the injury as a long-term issue. Art Warren, Tony Santillan and Hunter Strickland are the top candidates for ninth-inning work in Sims' absence.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Placed on 15-day IL

    Sims was placed on the 15-day injured list with low back spasms Thursday, retroactive to May 11. The 28-year-old spent the first few weeks of the season on the injured list due to an elbow injury, and he'll now be sidelined with a back issue. Over his six appearances this season, the right-hander has picked up a win and a save while posting a 9.45 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 6.2 innings. Art Warren, Tony Santillan and Hunter Strickland are the favorites for save chances while Sims is sidelined. It's not yet clear when Sims will be able to return to game action.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Bombs in mop-up outing

    Sims gave up five runs in two-thirds of inning during Wednesday's 18-4 loss to the Brewers. He gave up one hit while walking four batters. Sims was in a "get-work" outing, having last pitched Saturday and then five days prior to that. If the Reds beat the odds and actually have a save chance Thursday, there's a reasonable likelihood that Sims won't be available after throwing 34 pitches Wednesday.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Earns first save

    Sims tossed a scoreless inning and notched a save against St. Louis on Sunday. Sims was activated from the injured list Friday and was tagged with two runs in his season debut Saturday. The Reds went right back to him Sunday and he fired a perfect inning, forcing three straight groundouts to close out the 4-1 win. The 6-foot-2 righty recorded seven saves in 47 innings last season.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Activated from 10-day IL

    Sims (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims' activation was expected Friday, and he'll be available to make his season debut after missing the start of the year with an elbow issue. The righty made four rehab appearances at Triple-A Louisville and allowed a run on two hits and a walk while striking out five in four innings. He should be part of Cincinnati's committee of late-inning relievers that also includes Tony Santillan, Art Warren and Hunter Strickland.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Slated to return Friday

    Sims (elbow) is slated to rejoin the Reds' bullpen Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims has been on the injured list since the start of the regular season after dealing with back and elbow injuries during camp, but he made his final rehab appearance Wednesday and struck out one in a scoreless inning at Triple-A Louisville. The right-hander made a career-high 47 relief appearances for the Reds last year and converted seven of 10 save chances with a 4.40 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 47 innings. Once he's officially activated, Sims will join a crowded late-inning mix in the Reds' bullpen that also includes Tony Santillan, Art Warren and Hunter Strickland.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Rehab appearance encouraging

    Manager David Bell said Wednesday that he received encouraging reports from Sims' (elbow) rehab appearance that he threw Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims was delayed in camp due to elbow and back injuries, but it's encouraging that he was able to begin a rehab assignment early in the regular season. He gave up a run via a solo homer in his one inning Tuesday, but he apparently felt good afterward. Bell is optimistic that Sims could return by the time the Reds return home to face the Cardinals on April 22.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Begins rehab assignment

    Sims (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday. Sims has been behind schedule since the start of camp after dealing with elbow and back issues over the winter, though the Reds never seemed to be concerned about any long-term absence. He looked like the favorite to close heading into spring training but was never officially named the closer, so his role upon his return is not yet clear. Tony Santillan and Art Warren have picked up the Reds' two saves so far this season.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Rehab assignment on tap

    Sims (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville this week, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims performed well in his live BP session Friday, and the right-hander will take another step in his recovery process this week. If all goes well in Louisville, manager David Bell is optimistic that Sims could rejoin the Reds as early as next weekend for the team's home series against the Cardinals.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Lands on 10-day IL

    Sims (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Sims tossed a bullpen session Saturday but isn't expected to be ready for game action until mid-to-late April. He's expected to be the favorite for closing duties once he's back to full health, but Art Warren, Luis Cessa and Hunter Strickland will vie for save chances while Sims is unavailable.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Throws side session

    Sims (elbow) completed a side session Wednesday and plans to throw against hitters before the end of camp, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The Reds have already confirmed the right-hander will begin the season on the injured list after dealing with elbow and back injuries over the winter, though the hope is he'll only spent the 10-day minimum on the shelf. Sims was expected to open the campaign as the favorite for save opportunities, but Art Warren, Luis Cessa and Hunter Strickland are all in the mix to close in the meantime for Cincinnati.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Trip to injured list confirmed

    Sims (elbow) will begin the season on the injured list, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sims entered camp behind schedule after dealing with elbow and back issues over the winter. There haven't been reports of any setbacks, but he's yet to pitch in a game this spring and won't have time to get up to speed by Opening Day, as manager David Bell confirmed Monday. Art Warren, who posted a 1.29 ERA and a 41.5 percent strikeout rate in 21 innings last season, could open the season as the Reds' closer as a result.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Potentially out for Opening Day

    Sims acknowledged that he "had a couple of hiccups" with his elbow and back while gearing up for spring training and could begin the season on the IL, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Previously, Sims denied any issues, and he's currently healthy and throwing bullpens, though he's a little behind schedule during this truncated spring training. "There is no point in rushing, getting back and then in a couple weeks if something flares up and if we don't do it the correct way, I don't want to miss more time than I have to," said Sims.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Behind to start camp

    Sims is behind to start camp, though the Reds have yet to specify why, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Sims looks like the favorite to close in Cincinnati this season, as his 4.40 ERA last year came with ERA estimators that painted a far more positive picture, with SIERA (2.50) and xERA (2.51) looking the most optimistic. His 39.0 percent strikeout rate is closer material, while his 9.2 percent walk rate was only half a point worse than league average. He was limited to 47 innings by elbow troubles, however, and his readiness for Opening Day could be in doubt if it's another elbow issue that's bothering him this spring.

  • Reds' Lucas Sims: Earns relief win

    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

    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.
