Lucas Sims allowed two runs on two hits and one walk across two innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Saturday. He struck out one.
This was a traditional bullpen game for the Reds, with Sims leading the way. He stumbled a bit, allowing a series of hits in the second inning that led to two runs. On the season, Sims has posted a 4.60 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in 24 appearances and four starts.
Lucas Sims allowed one run on three hits and no walks over 2.2 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies. He struck out two.
Sims was promoted to starter after Alex Wood was scratched with a back injury. Sims has a 4.86 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 46:13 K:BB in 33.1 innings this season. He figures to return to the bullpen moving forward.
Lucas Sims (1-1) took the loss Wednesday against the Brewers, allowing five runs on three hits and two walks across 4.2 innings. He struck out five.
Sims did not allow many baserunners, but two of the Brewers' three hits left the ballpark. Sims has pitched to a 5.65 ERA and a 1-1 record, and is not likely to see many more starts for the Reds.
Lucas Sims allowed four runs on six hits over 7.1 innings in the Reds' 11-6 win over the Pirates on Tuesday. He walked one and struck out nine while picking up his first win.
This was a solid start from Sims all things considered. The 25-year-old had a career 6.01 ERA coming into this game, so expectations were understandably low. This was just a spot start for Sims as the Reds had a doubleheader yesterday, but he's probably the next man up should a rotation spot emerge in Cincinnati.
Lucas Sims went 6 2/3 innings against the Mets Monday and emerged with the win as the Braves' won by a score of 9-2. Sims allowed five hits, two runs (both earned) while walking two and recording six strikeouts. With the win, his record improves to 3-5 on the year. He will pitch again Saturday against Odrisamer Despaigne and the Marlins in Miami.
At 6 2/3 innings, this was Sims' longest outing thus far and the Braves are being especially cautious of all the young arms, rotation and bullpen. For those in playoffs, heed the caution but yes, he is a low-owned streamable option for Saturday with the inherent risk he carries. For 2018, the team counts on him being in the rotation the entire year and he likely projects as a #3 starter.
