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. (C. Trent Rosecrans on Twitter)
Lucas Sims performed well in a relief role in 2020 with a 2.45 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 33% K%, and 10.7% BB%. With Raisel Iglesias traded to the Angels, it opened up the Reds' closer spot that Sims was vying for. Unfortunately, the elbow injury is worrisome and something to monitor. Avoid Sims in drafts at this point.
