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.

Braves' Lucas Sims: Shelled for six runs in final 2017 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (3-6) was handed the loss Saturday against the Marlins after lasting just two innings, allowing six runs on seven hits and four walks. He struck out one.

Sims simply didn't have it in this one, as it took him 60 pitches to get through his abbreviated outing. Most of the damage was done in the first inning, with the big blow being a three-run home run by Derek Dietrich. This start aside, Sims' first stint in the big leagues was promising enough despite the unsightly 5.62 ERA with which he finished. He's just 23 years old, and if he can piece together a few strong starts in spring training, he should be in the running for one of the back-end rotation spots for 2018.

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 in the first game of Monday's doubleheader 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.
