  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Short start Friday

    Lorenzen (6-5) allowed two runs on four hits, four walks and a hit batter with five strikeouts in three innings, taking the loss Friday versus the Mariners.

    Lorenzen was not injured in the short start -- he threw 50 of 85 pitches for strikes in another inefficient outing against the Mariners. He's given up nine runs in his last eight innings across two starts versus Seattle, so he'll likely be glad to get away from them for a while. The poor pitching of late has seen the right-hander's season ERA move up to 4.24 with a 1.26 WHIP and 52:28 K:BB through 68 innings overall.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Gives up seven runs in loss

    Lorenzen (6-4) allowed seven runs on seven hits, three walks and a hit batter while striking out three in five innings, taking the loss Friday versus the Mariners.

    Lorenzen has alternated between strong and shaky starts in his last four turns through the rotation. The Mariners got to him early and often in this one, scoring in each of the first four innings, with the biggest damage being a Cal Raleigh solo home run and a three-run double from Ty France. Lorenzen saw his ERA spike to 4.15 with a 1.20 WHIP and 47:24 K:BB through 65 innings in 11 starts. He'll look for a bounce-back effort at home versus the Mariners next week.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Cruises to sixth victory

    Lorenzen (6-3) earned the win during Saturday's 11-6 victory over the Mets, allowing one run on six hits and one walk with four strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

    Los Angeles jumped on New York starter Carlos Carrasco early, letting Lorenzen cruise to an easy win while surrendering his lone run in the seventh when reliever Aaron Loup let an inherited runner cross the plate. Lorenzen, a first-year Angel, has now surrendered one or zero runs in five of his 10 starts, though Lorenzen is yet to combine run prevention with strikeouts as he's surrendered a total of 11 runs during his three turns with at least seven strikeouts and hasn't surpassed five in any other start. Lorenzen sports a 3.45 ERA and is set to toe the rubber against Seattle next weekend.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Done in by first inning

    Lorenzen (5-3) took the loss during Saturday's 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Phillies, allowing five runs on five hits and five walks with nine strikeouts in 5.2 innings.

    Lorenzen surrendered five runs on eight baserunners during a 37-pitch first inning but rebounded to retire 12 straight before a walk prompted his removal in the sixth. Despite the early struggles, the 30-year-old recorded a season-high nine strikeouts with an impressive 15 swinging strikes. He carries a 3.69 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into a start against the Mets next weekend.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Logs quality start in no-decision

    Lorenzen registered a no-decision during Saturday's 6-5 loss to Toronto, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 6.2 innings.

    Lorenzen breezed through the middle innings but surrendered one run on three hits in the first inning and two runs on three baserunners in the seventh before being removed. The 30-year-old has now gone at least six innings in six of his eight starts and has allowed one run or fewer in half while permitting at least three in the other four. Lorenzen lines up to square off against Philadelphia when he pitches again, scheduled for next weekend.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Six scoreless frames

    Lorenzen (5-2) earned the win during Saturday's 5-3 victory over Oakland, allowing three hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six scoreless innings.

    Lorenzen shut down Oakland's offense for the second straight game, permitting just one runner past second base, and he required only 84 pitches to navigate the frames. The 30-year-old has now allowed one run or fewer in four of his seven starts and has lowered his ERA to 3.05. He's scheduled to take the mound again next weekend against Toronto.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Goes seven innings in win

    Lorenzen (4-2) earned the win in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader, allowing one run on five hits and one walk with three strikeouts in seven innings.

    Lorenzen was staked to an early lead and shut down Oakland's offense after surrendering a run in the first, retiring the final seven batters he faced. The 30-year-old has excelled during his first season in Los Angeles, as he's gone at least six innings in four of his six starts, though 14 of his 24 strikeouts have come in two games. He'll carry a 3.57 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into his next start, tentatively scheduled for a rematch against Oakland next weekend.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Surrenders five runs in loss

    Lorenzen (3-2) took the loss in a 7-3 defeat at the hands of the Nationals on Saturday, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 4.2 innings.

    Lorenzen struggled Saturday in allowing runs in four of the five innings he appeared despite tying a season high with five strikeouts. The 30-year-old has been inconsistent with a 1.77 ERA in three wins compared to a 10.13 mark in eight innings during two losses. He'll look to get back on track against Oakland next weekend.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Carries shutout into ninth

    Lorenzen (3-1) allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks over 8.1 innings Sunday, striking out two and earning a win over the White Sox.

    While the final stat line doesn't look overly impressive, Lorenzen kept the White Sox off the board through eight innings and extended his scoreless streak to 14 frames. He was knocked out of the game after coughing up a two-run double to Leury Garcia and was charged with a third run when Garcia scored later in the inning. Lorenzen will carry a 3.04 ERA into his projected home start against the Nationals next weekend.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Tosses six scoreless frames in win

    Lorenzen (2-1) threw six scoreless innings against Cleveland on Monday, allowing three hits and four walks while striking out three to earn the win.

    Lorenzen had some control issues in the contest, as he threw only 49 of 93 pitches for strikes and issued a season-high four free passes. However, the right-hander worked around the walks by yielding only three hits and inducing two double plays. This was Lorenzen's second win and second quality start of the campaign, making him an intriguing pickup in fantasy leagues in which he isn't already rostered. The right-hander will carry a 2.93 ERA into his next start, which is scheduled to come in Chicago against the White Sox on Sunday.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Yields four runs in loss

    Lorenzen (1-1) allowed four runs on four hits and two walks over 3.1 innings Monday, striking out two and taking a loss against Houston.

    Lorenzen stumbled out of the gate Monday, coughing up a two-run shot to Yordan Alvarez in the first inning. In the fourth, he walked Jeremy Pena with the bases loaded before plunking Jose Siri just two pitches later. The 30-year-old saw his ERA jump to 4.82 through 9.1 innings across two appearances. Lorenzen is currently expected to face the Guardians at home next week.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Wins first Halo start

    Lorenzen (1-0) got the victory in Monday's 6-2 win over the Marlins, allowing one run on two hits with seven strikeouts in six innings.

    Lorenzen permitted just two baserunners and made one mistake -- a Jesus Sanchez fourth-inning solo home run -- in submitting an impressive start. The 30-year-old had only started five games since his rookie season way back in 2015 prior to Monday's outing, but with the success he should stick around Los Angeles' six-man rotation for at least one more turn next Monday in Houston.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Won't pursue two-way role

    Lorenzen is content to focus on a pitching role this season and won't pursue having an opportunity to hit, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Lorenzen worked as a starter, as a reliever, and occasionally as an outfielder during seven seasons in Cincinnati, though he logged only one big-league plate appearance in each of the past two campaigns. He appears to now be committed to pitching full time after signing with the Angels in the offseason and being tabbed to join the team's starting rotation. Lorenzen has started 26 contests in his major-league career, though 21 of those came in 2015 during his rookie campaign.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Inks deal with Angels

    Lorenzen signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Angels on Sunday, Robert Murray of reports.

    Lorenzen pitched exclusively for the Reds across his first seven seasons in the majors, but he'll now join the Angels on a short-term deal. The 29-year-old converted all four of his save chances and posted a 5.59 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 29 innings across 27 appearances in 2021. The right-hander will likely be in the mix for a high-leverage role with the Angels in 2022.

  • Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Picks up bumpy save

    Lorenzen got the save on Friday night against the Dodgers despite allowing a run on a hit while also hitting a batter.

    Mychal Givens had pitched the previous two days, so the Reds turned to Lorenzen on Friday night. This was Lorenzen's fourth save since returning from his second IL stint, but his first since August 22. He's the secondary option whenever Givens is down.
