      Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Transferred to 60-day DL

      The Reds transferred Lorenzen (elbow) to the 60-day DL on Monday. The move was merely procedural in order to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for right-handed reliever Layne Samson. Lorenzen remains in the early stages of his recovery from a strained right elbow, though he was able to begin throwing a little more than a week ago, putting him on pace for a potential season debut by mid-May.

      Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Resumes throwing Saturday

      Lorenzen (elbow) resumed throwing Saturday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. A right elbow strain kept Lorenzen on the DL to open the season, and his rehab process was further delayed by a case of mononucleosis, which caused him to shed 20 pounds. The right-hander is now working to regain stamina and strength after suffering through the illness, but he's still not particularly close to returning just yet. He'll need to face hitters before the Reds consider sending him out on a rehab assignment.

      Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Recently given platelet-rich plasma injection

      Lorenzen (elbow) was recently given a platelet-rich plasma injection to help accelerate his healing. Lorenzen, who hasn't resumed throwing yet, will certainly not be ready for the start of the season, and it's up in the air what role he'll have once he is cleared to throw again.

      Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Still on the shelf

      Lorenzen (elbow) hasn't pitched since March 4, contributing to the Reds' lack of clarity in their season-beginning rotation. Lorenzen might have been ticketed for the bullpen or Triple-A once the Reds get everyone back, but this spring injury scuttled even a chance to begin the year in the rotation.

      Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Could be ready for Opening Day as reliever

      Manager Bryan Price said Wednesday that Lorenzen (elbow) has a chance to be ready for Opening Day, but it would be as a reliever, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Lorenzen sprained the UCL in his pitching elbow Tuesday and will need some time to rest the ailment before getting back on the mound. As a result, Lorenzen might not get the necessary amount of reps to stretch out to a starter's workload before Opening Day, meaning he could be starting the season out of the pen. If that is the case, another spot in the Reds' rotation could be up for grabs over the final weeks of spring training.

      Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Has mild UCL sprain and elbow tendinitis

      Lorenzen was diagnosed with a mild UCL sprain and right elbow tendinitis Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. His timetable for return has not been announced yet, but there is a good chance he will miss some time and his status for the start of the season could be in jeopardy. Once healthy, Lorenzen will likely be the third starter in the Reds' rotation.
