by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (2/5/2013) MLB.com reports Braves 2012 first-round pick, pitcher Lucas Sims, is expected to start the year at Class A Rome, according to assistant general manager and director of player development Bruce Manno. "I think he's going to be real good for us, but with any young pitcher, it takes time," Manno said. "It takes time to develop. So that's something that we'll get a little better feel for going into spring training and so forth. We're excited with the skill level that he brought. I think for right now, I think we'd say his opportunity may come at [low Class A]. And then again, that depends on how far along we think he is during our camp."
