    Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Woeful outing in relief

    Michael Lorenzen (0-1) was tagged with the loss in relief Tuesday against the Brewers after allowing four runs on three hits and a walk in one-third of an inning.Lorenzen had logged 12 straight scoreless outings and hadn't allowed a single run before melting down in this one. He entered the game with a 4-1 lead, and by the time he departed the mound, the Brewers were up 5-4 and held the lead the rest of the way. As a result, his ERA spiked to 2.63 -- though given it was just the case of one bad outing, fantasy managers shouldn't be overly concerned and should continue trusting the seven-year veteran.

    Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Logs third save

    Michael Lorenzen walked one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 3-1 win over Miami.Lorenzen has now converted saves on consecutive days. The 29-year-old has yet to give up a run this season while scattering six hits and seven walks across 13.1 innings. He's added five holds in 12 appearances, so it's clear that manager David Bell trusts Lorenzen in the late innings, whether as a closer or a setup man.

    Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Nabs second save

    Michael Lorenzen allowed two hits and struck out one over 1.2 innings of scoreless work, picking up the save in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Marlins.Lorenzen inherited a tricky two-on, one-out situation in the eighth inning with the Cincinnati Reds up by three Saturday night. Although he allowed one of his inherited runners to score, he induced a double play ball from Bryan De La Cruz to escape the jam. He benefitted from another double play in the ninth to pick up his second save of the season. After returning from a hamstring injury July 30, the right-hander has yet to allow an earned run in 10 outings. If he can remain healthy, he's likely to work in some of the Reds' high-leverage situations alongside Mychal Givens.

    Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Records first save

    Michael Lorenzen allowed two hits and struck out three in 1.2 scoreless innings, earning the save in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Twins.The righty has now pitched 4.2 scoreless innings and hasn't walked a batter since returning from the injured list July 30. Cincinnati's bullpen has struggled to hold leads all season, but Lorenzen appears to be a prime candidate to close games for the remainder of the season. Further, having appeared in just five games this season, Lorenzen likely has the freshest arm on the Cincinnati Reds' staff, increasing the likelihood of frequent usage going forward.

    Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Nearly ready to return

    Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Progressing well

    Manager David Bell said Tuesday that Michael 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,

    Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Suffers hamstring injury Saturday

    Manager David Bell said following Saturday's loss to the Brewers that Michael Lorenzen exited the game because of a "hamstring-related injury," Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Lorenzen made his long-awaited return from a shoulder strain, making his first appearance of the season when he entered in the top of the eighth inning. After allowing a hit and a walk during a scoreless frame, the right-hander stayed in the game by moving to the outfield. He scored a run in the 11th inning, but he hurt his hamstring while running the bases. Bell said the club is hoping he'll be able to avoid another trip to the injured list, and that it will have a better idea of his status after he's looked at again Sunday. Lorenzen can be considered day-to-day until a further update is given.
