Braves' Lucas Sims: Picks up third win against Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (3-5) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts through 6.2 innings to earn the win Monday against the Mets.

This marks Sims's longest start of the season and his first quality start since August 22 against Seattle. Sims has allowed just three runs over 11.2 innings with 12 strikeouts over his past two starts and is making a strong case for a chance at a rotation job next season.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Solid effort in Wednesday's no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims allowed only one run on three hits and two walks over five innings Wednesday while striking out six, but he didn't factor into the decision in a 7-3 loss to the Nationals.

He exited the game in line for his third big-league win before the Braves bullpen imploded in the top of the eighth inning. Sims' 5.14 ERA on the year with Atlanta isn't encouraging, but this performance will give him a bit of confidence heading into Monday's road doubleheader against the Mets.

Braves' Lucas Sims: In line to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims is listed as the Braves' probable starter for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

After being tagged for seven runs in three innings in his Sept. 2 start against the Cubs, Sims was moved to the bullpen, where he's made four appearances in the last two weeks. With Mike Foltynewicz (finger) on track to miss his scheduled start this week, Sims will get another trial in the rotation, but the rookie won't make for an especially appealing streaming option while taking on one of the majors' top teams. Over 44 innings in the big leagues, Sims has tallied an underwhelming 5.52 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 6.3 K/9.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Moves to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims will pitch out of the bullpen for the rest of the season, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The smart money was always on Sims ending up in the bullpen, where he could utilize his two plus pitches (fastball and curveball) without worrying about turning over a big-league lineup multiple times. Luiz Gohara is taking his spot in the six-man rotation. Sims will likely work in mid-leverage spots over the rest of the season, but could eventually pitch his way into a late-inning role. He had a 5.73 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 37.2 innings as a starter.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Allows seven runs through three at Wrigley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (2-5) allowed seven runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four batters through just three innings during Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

This was Sims worst outing in the majors, and he now sports a 5.73 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 6.2 K/9 through seven starts. Those numbers aren't moving the fantasy needle in many settings, and it's probably wise to fade the rookie outside of favorable matchups. Sims projects to make his next start against Miami at SunTrust Park.
