      SP Michael Lorenzen up, SP David Holmberg down for Reds

      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

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

      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

      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

      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

      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.
