Farmers Only: Aristides Aquino Drops The Hammer

Farmers Only: Aristides Aquino Drops The Hammer

Everything else was pretty sucky/boring. Louisville Bats - One win, two losses (27-42 overall) Lucas Sims - 7.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K Sal Romano - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K Jimmy Herget - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K Aristides Aquino - 4 for 11, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 1 BB Christian Colon - 3 for 9, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB Rob Refsnyder - 5 for 12, 3 2B, 2 RBI The weekend, like much of the season was quite the bummer for the Bats. Lucas Sims puts up a great start on Friday night, and Aristides Aquino is literally tearing the freaking cover off the ball. However, the rest of the...

Reds claim RHP R.J. Alaniz off waivers from Mariners, place Robert Stephenson on IL

A flurry of pitching moves from your Reds this Friday. The Cincinnati Reds made a series of pitching-related roster moves over the last two days, beginning with the inevitable option back to AAA Louisville of Lucas Sims after his spot-start on Tuesday. On paper, there was an obvious counter-move to the Sims option, and that was recalling the injured Zach Duke, which they did - along with a bevy of other decisions. The #Reds today recalled from the Triple-A @LouisvilleBats LHP Wandy Peralta, reinstated from the injured list LHP Zach Duke and placed on the 10-day injured list (retro to...

Pirates at Reds, Game 4 - Preview and Lineups

FOR THE WIN! Last night was fun, huh? Derek Dietrich blasted three home runs against the team that gets really upset when he hits home runs against them, while Lucas Sims got his first start of the year and absolutely dazzled through, basically, eight innings (the last one notwithstanding in a 10-0 game). Almost as good as that, the rest of the NL Central lost to very good teams last night. The Cubs lost 9-6 in Houston, the Brewers lost 5-3 in Minnesota, and the Cardinals lost 4-3 in Philadelphia. The Reds win over the Pirates, and those final scores, put the Reds five games back of the...

He’s making a push to AAA while Jonathan India continues to hit. Brandon Larson Honorary Star Of The Night Scott Moss - 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 K Louisville Bats 3, Durham Bulls 18 Gah. The Bats sure did miss Lucas Sims right? Jose “Porky” Lopez gave up seven earned runs over five innings on eight hits, four walks, while striking out five. No one in the bullpen pitched well enough to note unless you’re a masochist. Sherman “Tank” Johnson went 2 for 2 with a walk. Rob Wooten looks to improve on his last start at 7:05 PM ET.

Cincinnati Reds: An aggressive Lucas Sims makes his case to start again

The Cincinnati Reds dismantled the Pittsburgh Pirates last night. While Derek Dietrich’s 3 home run performance was amazing, Lucas Sims was equally impressive and should get another chance to start. Lucas Sims made his first start in a Cincinnati Reds uniform last night against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Derek Dietrich homers three times, Lucas Sims dazzles, Reds crush Pirates 11-6

‘Twas quite the fun evening at GABP. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game There’s a dual award for the Cincinnati Reds tonight, and I think that’s easily warranted. At the plate, Derek Dietrich continued his absolute ownage of the Pittsburgh Pirates this season, clubbing a trio of homers in a game where most every fan out there was wondering whether Hit King Clint Hurdle was going to throw at him for having watched a mauled homer just yesterday. Dietrich eschewed any fear and just kept right on mashing, driving in 6 and raising his season slugging percentage to .720....

Lucas Sims gets his first start of 2019. Memorial Day only went about half as good as could be expected, as the Reds lost the day game but spanked the Pirates later in the night game. Since the team opted for Luis Castillo and Sonny Gray to pitch on the same day on regular rest, they need a fresh arm to start the game this evening, and it appears Lucas Sims has been tasked for that. RHP Lucas Sims is expected to be promoted from Triple-A Louisville to start tomorrow night’s game vs. Pittsburgh. #Reds pic.twitter.com/nnCgZJ8ZuZ— Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) May 28, 2019 Sims wasn’t...

Red Reposter - Lucas Sims to make season debut tonight

Red Reposter - Lucas Sims to make season debut tonight

Tuesday links! A rudimentary glance at the season stats of Lucas Sims in 2019 won’t exactly wow you. A 4.04 ERA is nice enough in a ‘2015-2018 Cincinnati Reds pitcher’ sort of way, but is hardly inspiring, as is his 1.33 WHIP. That said, a dive a tad deeper shows that Sims has, in fact, been largely impressive for AAA Louisville this year in a way you’d hope to see from a former 1st round draftee. If you pinpoint his April 26th start against the Norfolk Tides, for instance, you’ll see a thorough shellacking, one where he allowed 6 ER in just 1.1 IP. It was bad, it was gross, it...

Cincinnati Reds: Will Lucas Sims make his season debut in the rotation?

The Cincinnati Reds have a few options for Tuesday’s starter, but former first-round pick Lucas Sims might make the most sense. With Luis Castillo and Sonny Gray both taking the mound on Monday due to the day-night doubleheader, the Cincinnati Reds have yet to name a starter for Tuesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
