Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Allows two runs in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen gave up two runs Saturday in an inning of work on three hits, extending the Reds' deficit against the Pirates.

Unfortunately for Lorenzen, more attention has been paid to his prowess at the plate than on the mound. His 2.70 ERA is reasonable but deceptive, as he's allowed 14 walks in 33.1 innings. The best part about Lorenzen's line is that he has not given up a homer yet this season.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: No plans for role change
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite Lorenzen hitting a pinch-hit grand slam in Saturday's win over the Brewers, the Reds are not planning to change Lorenzen's role, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. "I think the way you use Mike is kind of what we're doing," Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said on Sunday. "Try to pitch him in two- or three-inning segments where we're not going to use him the next day and/or two days, and then have him available to hit when needed. ... We don't have any thoughts or plans yet to even discuss doing anything with him except what we're doing now. We're not going to look to have him start a game at something other than pitcher."

Lorenzen now has three homers on the season including two as a pinch hitter the last two games. But while his bat gives the Reds more flexibility, including the ability to avoid double-switching when he comes into games, he won't be a two-way player anytime soon.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Used as pinch hitter Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen wasn't available to pitch Wednesday after pitching the previous two games against the Braves, but he was used as a pinch-hitter and was available to play in the field, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

This isn't the first time Lorenzen has been used as a pinch-hitter. In fact, last season he even hit a pinch-hit homer. Lorenzen was a good hitter in college and was considered a possible two-way player when drafted. That won't happen - interim manager Jim Riggleman said that any play in the field will be on an emergency basis only. Meanwhile, Lorenzen has produced good ratios since coming off the DL, with a 1.77 ERA and 1.28 WHIP, albeit with eight walks in 20.1 innings. As a measure of how much he is trusted with the Reds, he already has three holds and a save.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lorenzen (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

This move was fully anticipated, but what was unexpected was Raisel Iglesias (undisclosed) heading to the disabled list in a corresponding move. While Iglesias is out, Lorenzen, Amir Garrett and Jared Hughes could all be options to get saves. Lorenzen did not allow a run in four innings (three appearances) during his rehab stint with Double-A.

Reds' Michael Lorenzen: Expected to be activated Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jim Riggleman stated that Lorenzen (shoulder) should return from the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Lorenzen was moved to the disabled list with a right shoulder strain prior to the beginning of the regular season, but he's finally expected to return Wednesday. He's appeared in three rehab outings, tossing four innings and allowing no runs on one hit and one walk while striking out three. Lorenzen is expected to fall into a middle relief role upon his reinstatement from the DL.
