Lucas Sims to miss a month with an elbow strain

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Milwaukee Brewers Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

The thin Reds’ bullpen is about to get thinner.

This comes just after the Reds got Tejay Antone back from the IL on Tuesday, and this time, the Reds will have to find a new de facto closer. Sims leads the Reds right now with 7 saves, so the Reds will need to find a new go-to bullpen arm, in a season where they really haven’t had any consistency there.

As part of the move, the Reds brought Scott Heinemann back up. Yippee.
