Reds recall SP Michael Lorenzen, option SP David Holmberg

(8/31/2015) The Reds recalled starting pitcher Michael Lorenzen from Triple-A Louisville on Monday. To clear a roster spot, starting pitcher David Holmberg was optioned to Louisville.

SP Michael Lorenzen up, SP David Holmberg down for Reds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) As expected, the Reds have demoted starter David Holmberg to Triple-A Louisville and brought up Michael Lorenzen, who will pitch Monday against the Cubs, per MLB.com.

Holmberg struggled mightily after three strong outings with Cincinnati. He allowed 18 runs on 23 hits over his last 10 2/3 innings.

Lorenzen compiled a 3-8 record and 5.46 ERA in his previous stint with the Reds, but has performed much better recently in the minors.


Michael Lorenzen could replace David Holmberg in Reds rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) 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 rookie David Holmberg has another rough outing


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Reds rookie starter David Holmberg was hit hard Wednesday by the Dodgers, leading to a short night on the mound and another loss. 

Holmberg could not get out of the fourth inning, as he was tagged for six runs on seven hits, including three home runs. Holmberg (1-4) has now lost four straight games and seen his ERA rise from 3.06 to 7.62 during the skid. 


Reds' David Holmberg gets roughed up Friday in loss to D-Backs


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/21/2015) Reds rookie left-hander David Holmberg had another sub-par performance in his start against the Diamondbacks on Friday. Holmberg allowed five runs on 11 over five innings, en route to the 6-3 loss.

Holmberg (1-3, 6.57 ERA) got off to a bad start when he allowed a solo home run to A.J. Pollock in the first inning. He settled in over the next two innings, but fell apart in a four-run fourth inning, which included a solo bomb off the bat of Yasmany Tomas.

The young hurler has now posted two poor outings in a row, as he allowed seven runs over two innings in his previous start on Saturday. In his three starts prior, he had allowed a total of six earned runs. 


Reds SP David Holmberg mashed by Dodgers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2015) Reds left-hander David Holmberg was due for a dud. It came Saturday night against the host Dodgers.

Holmberg, who was coming off three strong starts, gave up five runs in the second inning and was removed after a Justin Turner home run and two walks to start the third. He finished having surrendered seven runs on five hits and four walks with no strikeouts.

The big blasts buried Holmberg. He also yielded a solo homer to Yasiel Puig and three-run job to Enrique Hernandez.

The terrible performance sent his ERA soaring from 3.06 to 5.95.


Reds SP David Holmberg not good enough in loss to Padres


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2015) Reds starter David Holmberg took his first loss of the season Monday night in San Diego, but it was more a personal triumph than defeat.

Holmberg performed well for his third straight quality start since joining the rotation. He surrendered just two runs on six hits in 6 2/3 innings with three walks and five strikeouts.

The southpaw was holding on to a 1-0 lead before a two-run homer by Justin Upton ended the shutout. He retired nine of the next 10 batters he faced before three singles in the seventh knocked him out of the game.

Holmberg has yielded just six runs in 17 2/3 innings over three starts.


Reds' David Holmberg has impressive outing vs. Cardinals


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/5/2015) Making his second start of the year, Reds pitcher David Holmberg pitched well in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Wednesday. The left-hander allowed two runs on two hits over five-plus innings, walking three and striking out three. He threw 77 pitches with 42 going for strikes, as the Reds lost 4-3 in 13 innings.

Holmberg was cruising as he blanked the Cardinals for the first five innings. But he ran into trouble in the sixth, as he allowed the first two batters to reach, followed by an RBI double by Randal Grichuk. Holmberg was pulled from the game at that point, but another run would score in the inning.

Holmberg has been rather impressive over his first two appearances of the season, allowing a total of four runs over 11 innings of work.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Holmberg was 2-2 with a 5.08 ERA in eight prior MLB appearances, six of them starts. 


Reds recall Holmberg, Sampson; option Skipworth; Adcock to DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Six pitchers vying for last two spots in Reds' rotation


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Six pitchers are competing for the fourth and fifth spots in the Reds rotation, and a week into spring training games, the races are still too close to call. 

The half dozen pitchers have combined to give up one earned run so far this spring. 

Lefthander Tony Cingrani hit 94 MPH with his fastball, showing that last season's shoulder trouble is behind him. 

Righthander Anthony DeSclafani gave up an unearned run in his first start. "I felt like everything was working," he said.

Manager Bryan Price declared Cingrani and DeScalfani the early favorites.RHP Jason Marquis has thrown five hitless innings to work his way into the mix. RHP Raisel Iglesias and LHPs David Holmberg and Paul Maholm have also been effective. 

"At this point in time, we've got a great list," Price said to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. "It would be a very difficult challenge to feel like we've got it right if we had to make our team today because so many of these guys are performing at such a high level."


Reds' Price: David Holmberg 'throwing the ball beautifully'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price praised the work of pitcher David Holmberg, who is competing for a spot in the rotation this spring, MLB.com reports.

"He's throwing the ball beautifully," Price said. "Most of the guys on the board have thrown the ball very well this spring. He's throwing the ball as well as anybody, from what I've seen of him. He looks like the guy we traded for."

Holmberg came into last year's camp overweight and struggled in his first work at the major-league level with the Reds. However, he was able to hold batters to a .176/.283/.329 line in 24 2/3 innings in September, which included three starts and one long relief appearance.

"He wasn't in shape when he got here, he gained some weight," Price said. "I don't know if his arm was in great shape or not. He addressed it immediately. We had to talk about it and address it. To his credit, not only did he make an immediate adjustment, he learned his lesson and came into camp this year in great shape."

Holmberg posted a 4.66 ERA and 56:33 K:BB ratio in 92 2/3 innings over 18 starts with Triple-A Louisville in 2014.
