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

Sims was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

Sims was up with the Braves for five days, making one appearance. That appearance was a disaster, as he allowed three earned runs on two hits, three walks and a homer while recording just one out. His ERA stands at 81.00 (though his FIP is "only" 69.14). He could be back to redeem himself in a low-leverage role at some point later this season.

Braves' Lucas Sims: May start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims could make a spot start Thursday in place of the injured Anibal Sanchez (hamstring), Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Sims was recalled over the weekend to act as a long reliever, but he has primarily been a starter in his career. He has yet to make an appearance in the majors this year, but he held the opposition scoreless in his lone start for Triple-A Gwinnett. If he does pick up Thursday's start, he would face off with Mets' righty Matt Harvey.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Called up from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

Sims will join the big-league bullpen after the team designated Luke Jackson for assignment Sunday. Sims -- who posted a 5.62 ERA over 57.2 innings with the Braves last season -- will likely be used in a long-relief role for the time being.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Struggles in Saturday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims gave up four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three over three innings in Saturday's split-squad game against the Phillies.

The 23-year-old is still theoretically in the running for a rotation spot, but Sims has done little this spring to indicate he's ready for that assignment. Expect him to begin the season back at Triple-A Gwinnett, where he posted a 3.75 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 132:36 K:BB in 115.1 innings in 2017, and another strong performance there could earn him a callup to Atlanta later in the year.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Outside looking in for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims is in the running for the Braves' final rotation spot, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

It seems like Julio Teheran, Mike Foltynewicz and Brandon McCarthy are locks to make the rotation, with Luis Gohara the favorite to swipe the fourth spot. This leaves just one spot remaining for either Sims, Sean Newcomb, Max Fried or Scott Kazmir (hip). Sims seems to be a bit of a long-shot for the role, mostly given the successes of Newcomb and Fried last season. That said, Sims' struggles in the majors certainly don't help his case. In 57.2 frames, he could only muster a 5.62 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP while striking out just 6.9 batters per nine. Sims would need to put together an outstanding spring to truly have a shot at overtaking the competition for the fifth rotation spot.
