Michael Lorenzen could replace David Holmberg in Reds rotation

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/15) The struggles of Reds starter David Holmberg are likely to benefit Michael Lorenzen, who could assume his place in the rotation as early as Monday against the Cubs, according to MLB.com.

Lorenzen has been tearing it up at Triple-A Louisville. He is 2-1 with a 1.13 ERA in 24 innings over his last three starts. His last effort was a one-hitter over eight innings.

Holmberg has been going in the opposite direction with a 15.19 ERA over his past three outings. He was pounded for six earned runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Dodgers in his last performance.

The only problem for Lorenzen is an innings limit that Bryan Price placed at 150-155 innings. He has thrown 133 2/3 combined with Cincinnati and Louisville this season.

Reds send SP Michael Lorenzen to Triple-A on Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/13/15) The Reds optioned right-hander Michael Lorenzen to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday. The young hurler got roughed up in his outing against the Padres on Tuesday, allowing seven runs in just 1 1/3 innings.

Though the team hasn't specified how long Lorenzen will be down for, he could realistically be called back up when the rosters expand on September 1. 

His demotion clears a spot for fellow rookie John Lamb, who will start and make his Major League debut on Friday.

Reds trying to pick right time to move Michael Lorenzen to bullpen

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/12/15) Reds starting pitcher Michael Lorenzen is still penciled in to start Sunday against the Dodgers. However, given his recent string of poor outings, the Reds could bump the right-hander from his next start.

"We're trying to figure out what's the best way to manage these last innings that he has," Reds manager Bryan Price said Wednesday, per MLB.com. "We knew this going into the season based on whether he was pitching effectively and pitching here, that inevitably he would run out of innings if we just kept giving him starts. I think at some point in time, he'll need to transition into the bullpen."

The 23-year-old Lorenzen is in his second pro season as a starter. He totaled 120 2/3 innings in 2014. He is up to 109 2/3 innings between the majors and minors this season, and Price revealed they want to limit his innings to 150-155.

"It's a balancing act at this point in time right now," Price said. "He's got a lot of room for growth and need for growth. We've asked a lot out of this kid. … this is his second [season as a starter] and he's had some really good moments, even though he's in a bit of a down spell right now. … but he's got some work to do. There's a lot of development that needs to take place in order for him to become the pitcher we know he'll be."

Reds' Michael Lorenzen gets knocked around by Padres slugfest

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/12/15) Reds starter Michael Lorenzen was hammered for seven runs over 1 1/3 innings in Tuesday's 11-6 loss to the Padres. Lorenzen was forced to throw 55 pitches, while recording just four outs.

Lorenzen (3-8) watched his ERA sky rocket to 5.46 with the disaster outing. He allowed three runs in the first, and another four in the second inning before the Reds could even get comfortable.

This was Lorenzen's shortest start of the season, and he has allowed at least three earned runs in five consecutive starts, posting a 12.60 ERA in that stretch.

Reds SP Michael Lorenzen suffers seventh loss on Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/6/15) Reds starter Michael Lorenzen was on the wrong side of a shutout on Thursday, as the Reds lost to the Cardinals 3-0. Lorenzen allowed all three runs on four hits over five innings. He struggled with his control, issuing four walks and a hit batter while striking out five on the afternoon.

The rookie right-hander threw just 53 of his 93 pitches for strikes, as he had trouble locating his pitches. He put up zeroes over the first three innings, but allowed a run in the fourth and two more in the fifth. Meanwhile, the Reds' offense was baffled by Michael Wacha, en route to the shutout loss.

"I felt good," Lorenzen said, per MLB.com. "I thought I threw the ball really well. I competed with everything, and they took some good at-bats. I had some guys 0-2, and they battled. That's what the Cardinals are known for, but coming out today, besides taking the loss -- obviously, we want to win, but it's improvement. I'm feeling good, arm feels good, mechanically I feel good, so I just need to take the results out of the equation and understand … that I threw the ball well."

Lorenzen (3-7, 4.84 ERA) has failed to get past the sixth inning in each of his four most recent starts. He has allowed a total of 20 earned runs over that stretch.
