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.

Lucas Sims (elbow) tweets that he'll be ready for Opening Day

Reds RHP Lucas Sims (elbow) tweeted that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact

Reds GM Nick Krall said earlier today that Sims has experienced elbow tightness this offseason and will be delayed coming into spring training. However, Sims himself says that this is purely precautionary and that he'll be ready for when the season begins. Following the trade of Raisel Iglesias, Sims is likely competing with Amir Garrett for the Reds' closer's role. It'll be a battle to watch this spring.
