  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Throwing bullpens

    Lorenzen (shoulder) has been throwing bullpen sessions without issues, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Lorenzen has been out with a shoulder strain since early July, and his placement on the 60-day injured list last week means he'll be ineligible to return before early September. He doesn't appear to be advanced enough in his rehab to beat that timetable, but it's a positive that he's taking steps in the right direction.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Lorenzen (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. Lorenzen has been out with a shoulder strain since early July and suffered a setback a few weeks later. He's been throwing again for a week and could begin a rehab assignment soon, but this transaction means he'll be ineligible to return to the active roster before early September.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Resumes throwing

    Lorenzen (shoulder) recently restarted a throwing program, and he could begin a rehab assignment soon, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Lorenzen was placed on the 15-day IL in early July, and he was able to start a throwing program about a week later. However, the right-hander subsequently had a setback that resulted in him being scratched from a rehab start. He's now back to throwing, but he'll need to progress to a rehab stint before he's able to rejoin the big club. Mid-August appears to be the earliest timeframe for his return.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Suffers setback in recovery

    Lorenzen (shoulder) recently had a setback in his recovery and has been scratched from his rehab start at Double-A Rocket City, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Lorenzen's rehab start likely would have been one of the final steps in his recovery process, but he'll now rest for a few days before restarting his throwing program. It seems likely that the right-hander's setback will force him to stay on the injured list until sometime in August.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Plays catch Tuesday

    Lorenzen (shoulder) played catch Tuesday as the beginning of a throwing program, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Lorenzen went on the 15-day IL on July 7 due to a right shoulder strain. A subsequent MRI revealed no structural damage, and he's now been able to resume throwing. Lorenzen doesn't have a concrete timeline for a return, but he could be back soon after the All-Star break.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: MRI shows no structural damage

    Lorenzen's shoulder showed no structural damage in an MRI taken Friday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Lorenzen hit the injured list Thursday with a right shoulder strain, an injury which may partially explain his 13.09 ERA and 2.55 WHIP across his last three starts. Friday's test results indicate that he's avoided a worst-case scenario, but he still has more treatment to get through before he begins a throwing program.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Out with shoulder strain

    Lorenzen was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to July 4, due to a right shoulder strain. It's unclear exactly how long Lorenzen has been dealing with the injury, though he's struggled across his past three starts with a 9:11 K:BB and 16 earned runs allowed over 11 innings. According to Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic, the 30-year-old is scheduled to undergo an MRI, the results of which should provide an indication of whether or not he'll spend more than the 15-day minimum on the shelf.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Status for Friday in question

    Lorenzen's availability for his scheduled start Friday in Baltimore is up in the air due to a physical issue, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The 30-year-old surrendered eight runs (seven earned) over three innings during his last start July 1, though it's unclear when the unspecified issue first surfaced. Reid Detmers has joined the Angels on the taxi squad and is poised to start Friday should Lorenzen be unable to take the mound.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Roughed up Friday

    Lorenzen (6-6) took the loss against Houston on Friday, pitching three innings and allowing eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out three batters. Lorenzen got out of the first inning without surrendering a run despite allowing two batters to reach base. Things got much worse for the right-hander from there, as Houston tallied two runs in the second and piled on six more in the third. Of the eight hits Lorenzen allowed, four went for extra bases, including three that left the yard. This was his second start in his past three outings during which he's been tagged for seven earned runs, and his season ERA has consequently jumped from 3.45 to 4.94.

  • 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: Sleeper pitchers for Week 12 (June 20-26)

    Lorenzen has been better than the sum of his parts this year, delivering a quality start almost every time out, and he'll be facing a bottom-five offense (the Royals) this 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.

    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.
