Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Re-signs with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen and the Reds reached an agreement Friday on a one-year, $1.95 million deal, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Lorenzen threw 81 innings for the Reds last season, finishing with a 3.11 ERA, though a modest 15.7 percent strikeout rate and an unimpressive 9.9 percent walk rate suggest that some regression may be coming. His role may be expanded this season, with the Reds talking about using him in the outfield occasionally to take advantage of a bat which has produced a 101 wRC+ (.250/.276/.500) and six homers in 92 major-league plate appearances.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Could see time in outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen could see some playing time in the outfield under new manager David Bell, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

In a small sample of 92 career plate appearances, Lorenzen has looked like a capable big-league hitter, posting a .250/.276/.500 slash line (good for a 101 wRC+) with six homers. His 31.5 percent strikeout rate and 2.2 percent walk rate cast some doubt on the idea that he should hit on a regular basis, however. As a pitcher, Lorenzen's 3.11 ERA in 81 innings last season was solid, but as a player who worked primarily as a non-closing reliever, his fantasy value was limited. If he does become something approaching a true two-way player, that would have appeal in certain formats, though it's not clear yet just how often Bell intends to use him in the field.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Throws victorious gem, plates run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen (4-2) threw 5.2 scoreless innings Saturday to register the victory over Pittsburgh, working around five hits and two walks while striking out two. He also notched an RBI single.

The two-way player helped his cause by driving in Dilson Herrera in the fourth inning. Lorenzen has sandwiched a Sept. 23 loss with a combined 9.2 scoreless innings in two positive outings, finishing the 2018 season with a 3.11 ERA in 81 innings, but he probably overachieved, considering his 6.0 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9 overall. He pitched well in relief (3.21 ERA in 67.1 innings) but might get a chance to compete for a rotation gig in 2019, making him an arm to watch for NL-only fantasy players.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Start pushed up to Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen's third start of the season has been pushed up from Sunday to Saturday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

This is part of the fallout from the Reds' decision to shut down Luis Castillo. Anthony DeSclafani will move from Saturday to Friday, and Sunday's start remains open right now.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Hit hard vs. Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen (3-2) surrendered four runs on nine hits and two walks across four innings and was saddled with the loss Sunday against Miami.

Lorenzen gave up all four runs in the third inning on two hits. He exited the game with a 4-0 deficit after throwing 41 of 65 pitches for strikes. The 22-year-old made just his second start of the 2018 campaign in the series finale, and he's slated to close out Cincinnati's season Sunday against the Pirates.
