Orioles' Zac Lowther: Out with strained shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther landed on the injured list at Triple-A Norfolk with a left shoulder strain Tuesday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Lowther owns a 10.80 ERA in 8.1 innings at the big-league level this season and a 6.93 mark over seven Triple-A starts. He hasn't done much to earn another major-league opportunity and will now be out of the picture for some time until his shoulder heals.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther was called up by the Orioles on Friday, and he made two relief appearances during his time in the majors. He allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out four in three innings, but he'll now head back to the Triple-A club after right-hander Shaun Anderson was recalled in a corresponding move.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

The lefty has posted a 15.19 ERA in 5.1 innings with the Orioles this season, with all nine runs coming in his last two appearances. He hasn't been remarkable at Triple-A either, where he has a 5.18 ERA and yielded five runs in a four-inning start June 24. Even so, Lowther will be called upon for added bullpen depth while Hunter Harvey (lat) spends time on the injured list.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Moves back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles optioned Lowther to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's 18-5 win over Cleveland, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. Lowther covered the final two innings of the contest, giving up two runs on three hits while striking out three.

Baltimore summoned Lowther from Triple-A earlier Sunday after staff ace John Means (shoulder) was moved to the injured list in a corresponding move. Due to upcoming off days Monday and Thursday, the Orioles are expected to get by with four starters until June 15 in Cleveland, so the team didn't call up Lowther to serve as a direct replacement in the rotation. Lowther would be eligible to rejoin the Orioles on June 15, so he could still be an option to start that game if Means isn't ready to return from the IL.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Back with Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

Lowther was recalled by the Orioles on Wednesday and then sent back to Norfolk on Thursday without making an appearance with the big club. He'll rejoin Baltimore ahead of their game against Cleveland on Saturday and figures to be able to pitch in long relief if needed. John Means (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding roster move. Lowther could be a candidate to take Means' spot in the rotation while the left-hander recovers.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

This latest stint in the majors lasted just one game, in which he didn't pitch. Lowther has been working as a starter at Triple-A and as a swingman in the majors. He has a 3.22 FIP at Triple-A and a 6.43 FIP in the big leagues.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Rejoining major-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther will be recalled by the Orioles on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther was scheduled to start for Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, but he'll instead rejoin the Orioles to serve as a long-relief option. Since starter Matt Harvey is pitching on three days' rest in Wednesday's game against the Twins, he's not expected to work deep into the contest, which could pave the way for Lowther to serve as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen. In three starts since he was optioned to Triple-A, Lowther posted a 7.15 ERA and 2.07 WHIP in 11.1 innings.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

Reports from Sunday indicated that Lowther was bound for the bullpen, but it turns out he'll actually be heading to the minors. His start Saturday against the Red Sox didn't exactly make a strong case for him sticking around, as he allowed seven runs on seven hits while recording just seven outs. Keegan Akin was recalled in a corresponding move.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Headed for bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Lowther will likely move to the bullpen for the time being, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Baltimore has yet to finalize its rotation heading into a six-game week, but it apparently won't include Lowther, who was lit up by Boston for seven earned runs in 2.1 innings in his first career MLB start Saturday. Due to off days Thursday and May 17, the Orioles could choose to get by with a four-man rotation until at least May 22.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Rocked by Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther (0-1) took the loss Saturday as the Orioles were trounced 11-6 by the Red Sox, surrendering seven runs on seven hits and two walks over 2.1 innings. He struck out three.

The rookie lefty got through the first inning of his first big-league start unscathed, but things went downhill rapidly for Lowther after that. He tossed 40 of 65 pitches before getting the hook, and Baltimore may consider other options rather than give the 25-year-old another turn in the rotation.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Officially called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk ahead of his scheduled start Saturday against the Red Sox.

Lowther's promotion to the majors was expected after the left-hander was named the starter for Saturday's matchup against Boston. Lowther allowed one hit and no walks while striking out one in a scoreless relief inning during his major-league debut.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Slated to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther will start Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther made his major-league debut April 25, allowing one hit and no walks while striking out one in a scoreless relief inning. The southpaw will now make his first big-league start at home against the Red Sox.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was optioned to the Orioles' alternate training site Monday.

Lowther made his Orioles debut during Sunday's win over the Athletics. He allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning. However, the southpaw will be sent back to the team's alternate camp after right-hander Jay Flaa's contract was selected in a corresponding move.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Scoreless inning in Orioles debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Athletics.

The southpaw entered the game in a low-leverage situation with the Orioles holding a large lead. Lowther got the job done for a solid start to his big-league career. The 24-year-old posted a 2.55 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 154:63 K:BB across 148 innings as a starter with Double-A Bowie in 2019, but he'll begin this season in the bullpen.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Set for debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther will be recalled from the alternate site Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther is among the organization's best left-handed pitching prospects and started 26 games at Double-A Bowie in 2019. While he has come through the organization as a starter, he's expected to begin his big-league career in the bullpen.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther's contract was purchased by the Orioles on Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

One of the Orioles' top left-handed pitching prospects, Lowther has 27 starts at Double-A under his belt and spent this past summer at the alternate training site, so he is nearing his big-league debut. There should be some rotation spots up for grabs early and often in Baltimore in 2021, and this new Orioles regime has shown a strong ability to develop pitchers.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Joins player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther was added to the Orioles' player pool Friday.

Lowther will probably be working out at the Orioles' alternate training site for primarily developmental reasons, though it's not out of the question that he makes his big-league debut at some point down the stretch. He's yet to reach Triple-A, but he recorded a strong 2.55 ERA, backed by a 26.0 percent strikeout rate, in 26 starts for Double-A Bowie last season.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Invited to big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther will join the Orioles for big-league camp this spring, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Lowther pitched well in his third minor-league season, making 26 starts for Double-A Bowie and recording a 2.25 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 26 percent strikeout rate. The 23-year-old southpaw will have the opportunity to work with the big-league coaching staff this spring before likely joining Triple-A Norfolk's starting rotation alongside fellow quality pitching prospects Dean Kremer, Alex Wells and Michael Baumann.
