News 
 Lucas Sims is slowly progressing from his elbow injury. He threw ten fastballs during short box drills, which involve throwing off a mound to the catcher instead of flat ground.

Notes 
 Sims had a fine 2020, going 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA a 0.94 WHIP, and plenty of strikeouts. He'll be in the mix for the Reds' closer job with Amir Garrett and Sean Doolittle, though his early bout with elbow soreness this spring doesn't help him. Monitor the reports out of spring training, but he's a late-round speculative draft pick at best at the moment.
