Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Rotation candidate in 2018?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen may be given a shot to win a rotation spot in 2018, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Despite bouncing around with his role in his short major-league career, the right-hander could reverse course again as the Reds look for some semblance of consistency in their starting quintet. The 25-year-old struggled with a 5.40 ERA in 2015, but he did make 21 starts and could ramp up his workload if stretched out properly heading into or during spring training. Lorenzen shined as a reliever in 2016 (2.88 ERA, 8.6 K/9, 2.3 BB/9 in 50 innings) and has been serviceable this year, though. He might even land the majority of save opportunities to finish 2017 should the Reds trade Raisel Iglesias. Still, dynasty players scrounging for cheap stashes among starters also could look his way.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Remains in setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen has a 2.93 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 42 strikeouts in 37 appearances this season.

The 25-year-old remains the setup man for Raisel Iglesias and the Reds, but still provides the versatility to go multiple innings if needed. Lorenzen leads Cincinnati's bullpen with 46 innings pitched and 16 holds, and should continue to see high-leverage opportunities this season.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Pitching well since rough start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen has a 1.64 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 22 innings since the start of May.

The right-hander had a couple rough outings in April that ballooned his ERA, but overall has put together a good season thus far. Lorenzen has allowed only two home runs this season and has recorded six holds. The 25-year-old is likely to continue in his current role with most of the Reds' bullpen performing well.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Records win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen pitched one inning in relief for the win Wednesday against Cleveland.

Lorenzen came into the bottom of the eighth and pitched around an Edwin Encarnacion single to win his third game on the year, lowering his ERA to 3.20. At 25 years old, he has been the bullpen workhorse for Cincinnati this season, leading all relievers with 25.1 innings pitched and four holds. He's striking out 7.82 per nine innings and has a WHIP of 1.14, not outstanding numbers but good enough to keep hold of the setup position in a young and inexperienced bullpen.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Picks up win against Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings without allowing a baserunner and striking out three batters to collect his second win of the season during Monday's win over Pittsburgh.

Already up to 15.1 innings out of the bullpen, Lorenzen is being leaned on and has pitched reasonably well most nights. Two rough outings against Milwaukee on April 14 and the Cubs on April 21 have accounted for seven of his eight earned runs allowed, so outside of those appearances, Lorenzen has been solid. He's also pitching in enough high-leverage situations to have collected two wins, a save and two holds, and his 9.4 K/9 and 1.17 WHIP are serviceable marks. Additionally, Lorenzen will probably continue to chip away at his 4.70 ERA over the coming weeks.
