SP,RP - CIN
Lucas Sims (4-2) blew the save and took the loss Wednesday against Atlanta, allowing three runs (two earned) on one hit and one walk in 0.2 innings. He struck out one.
Sims started the 11th inning but allowed a walk-off homer to Ozzie Albies. Sims may still be in the mix for saves going forward, but his 5.34 ERA and 1.38 WHIP don't exactly look like closer material.
Lucas Sims is scheduled to begin his rehab assignment on Tuesday at Triple-A Louisville.
Reds manager David Bell said Sims will not return to the team during this road trip, but near the end or after the first week of August. He has been sidelined since June due to a right elbow sprain.
Reds RHP Lucas Sims (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville next week.
Sims is on the IL with an elbow sprain. Heath Hembree has been fantastic in the closer role as of late, so it remains to be seen if Sims will see save opportunities upon returning.
Reds manager David Bell says RHP Lucas Sims (elbow) is likely to return in late July.
Heath Hembree has received some save chances recently, as has Amir Garrett. The Cincinnati bullpen has been a frustrating situation for fantasy managers all year long. Perhaps Sims will reclaim the role upon his return.
The Reds placed RHP Lucas Sims on the 10-day IL with a sprained right elbow.
Sims struggled in his most recent outing and perhaps this was why. He can be dropped in fantasy formats for now, but who closes games in Cincinnati is a bit up in the air. Tejay Antone is certainly their best reliever, though the team has preferred him in a multi-inning role thus far. Perhaps Amir Garrett will get another crack at ninth-inning duties as well.
