Lorenzen (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Lorenzen landed on the shelf with a hamstring injury after making his season debut July 17, but he was able to make a quick recovery. The right-hander figures to be a significant bullpen piece for the Reds down the stretch if he can stay healthy.
Lorenzen (hamstring) could return to the active roster during the Reds' weekend series against the Mets, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Lorenzen has made just a single big-league appearance this season, as he returned from a shoulder injury in mid-July only to exit his first appearance with a hamstring injury. The hamstring issue doesn't appear to be a significant one, however, as it looks set to cost him approximately two weeks.
Manager David Bell said Tuesday that Lorenzen (hamstring) has been able to play catch and could throw a bullpen within the next week to 10 days, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Bell noted that the right-hander isn't yet able to throw off a mound because the hamstring issue is preventing him from pushing off properly. The fact that he's playing catch already is encouraging, however, so it seems likely that his IL stint will be on the shorter side. If Lorenzen is indeed able to get a bullpen session under his belt within the next 10 days, an early-August activation seems within the realm of possibility,
The Reds officially placed Lorenzen (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Monday. Lorenzen sustained the injury during his first appearance of the season Saturday, after a shoulder strain had kept him on the shelf for the entire first half. He'll presumably require a shorter period of time to recover from the hamstring injury, but the Reds have yet to offer a concrete timeline for his return to the big club. The Reds called up R.J. Alaniz from Triple-A Louisville to take Lorenzen's spot on the active roster and in the bullpen.
Reds manager David Bell said after Sunday's 8-0 loss to the Brewers that Lorenzen (hamstring) will be placed on the 10-day injured list prior to Monday's series opener versus the Mets, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. After a prolonged stint on the 60-day IL due to a shoulder strain suffered in spring training, Lorenzen was finally cleared to make his season debut with the Reds coming out of the All-Star break. He tossed a clean inning out of the bullpen in Saturday's 7-4 loss, but he strained his right hamstring during the appearance and will face another shutdown. The Reds haven't revealed the extent of his injury, but hamstring strains often carry volatile recovery timelines.
