Orioles' Zac Lowther: Doomed by first inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther yielded three runs on five hits and two walks over 3.1 innings in a no-decision Saturday against Boston. He also struck out a pair.

Lowther gave up all three runs in the opening inning, giving up an RBI single to Rafael Devers and a two-run double to Bobby Dalbec. Lowther was able put up zeroes in each of the next two innings but was pulled in the fourth after giving up back-to-back walks with one out. Lowther, who has been knocked around for 10 runs in just 5.1 innings over his last two outings, is tentatively lined up to face Texas at home in his next scheduled start.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Nightmarish start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther (0-2) allowed seven runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four in two-plus innings, taking the loss Sunday versus Toronto.

The Toronto offense spared no expense in what ended up being a 22-7 game. Lowther's biggest mistakes resulted in a grand slam by Lourdes Gurriel and a solo home run by Vladimir Guerrero. The southpaw also put Gurriel aboard with a walk in the third inning before Spenser Watkins took over on the mound. Lowther owns a 9.92 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 17:9 K:BB across his first 16.1 big-league innings. Despite the struggles, he could remain in the rotation since Baltimore has nothing but pride to play for at this point in the season. He lines up for a road start in Boston next weekend.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Denied win in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Royals, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out two.

Called up Monday to make his second career MLB start, Lowther gave the O's a quality start on 92 pitches (56 strikes) and exited in line for his first career win, but the Baltimore bullpen couldn't make a 2-1 lead hold up. It's not clear whether the 25-year-old southpaw will remain in the rotation, but this performance was more than good enough to earn him a longer look.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Called up ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles recalled Lowther from Triple-A Norfolk ahead of his scheduled start Monday versus the Royals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther is rejoining the Orioles for the first time since early July to pick up the second start of his big-league career. Though he turned in a 2.79 ERA over his final two starts at Triple-A prior to his call-up, Lowther was tattooed for 10 earned runs on 13 hits and four walks over 8.1 innings in his five appearances in the majors earlier this season. As such, fantasy managers should tread carefully with Lowther, who tentatively lines up for a two-start week. His second turn is expected to come during Saturday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays at Camden Yards.

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

Lowther will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to start Monday's game against the Royals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther returned to the mound at Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday after he missed a month and a half with a shoulder injury, and he allowed three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four in 5.2 innings. The southpaw should be able to handle a full workload in his return to the majors.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Rejoins Triple-A roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triple-A Norfolk reinstated Lowther (shoulder) from its 7-day injured list Wednesday.

Lowther wrapped up his three-game rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie on Aug. 26, when he tossed four innings and gave up two unearned runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four. Now that he's back in action at Triple-A, he should slot back into the Norfolk rotation. Before landing on the shelf, Lowther posted a 6.93 ERA over seven starts with Norfolk.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Progressing in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther (shoulder) will make a rehab start at High-A Aberdeen on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther made his first rehab appearance in the Florida Complex League and allowed a hit and no walks while striking out three in 2.1 innings. The southpaw is slated to make only one rehab start at High-A Aberdeen before he progresses to Double-A Bowie next week. If he feels good following each appearance, the 25-year-old is expected to return to Triple-A Norfolk afterward.

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Rehab starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lowther (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment in the Florida Complex League on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Lowther has been out since late July with a strained left shoulder. He's made five major-league appearances this season and seven in the minors, so it's far from guaranteed that he'll be called up once healthy.

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.

May 8, 2021 03:48 PM
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.

May 9, 2021 01:28 AM
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.
