Fantasy Impact:

Sims appeared in six games this year before going on the IL with a herniated disc in his back, and he simply never got close to returning. He was the presumptive closer heading into the year, but he'll now likely need to earn that role back. He's under team control for two more seasons, so expect the Reds to be careful with him, but considering that it sounds like he'll be able to have a normal offseason, expect him to be ready to go at the start of the 2023 season.
