Top Michael Lorenzen News

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Heading to Detroit

    Lorenzen signed a one-year, $8.5 million contract with the Tigers on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    After spending one season with the Angels, the 30-year-old righty is once again on the move. Lorenzen spent a bit of time on the injured list between July and September last season with a shoulder injury, though he was still able to put up a 4.24 ERA and 1.28 WHIP on the year -- both improvements from his 2021 campaign. He will likely take a spot toward the back end of the Tigers' rotation in 2023.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Ends year with quality start

    Lorenzen allowed three hits and three walks while striking out seven over six scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Lorenzen wasn't able to complete six innings in any of his four September starts after returning from a shoulder strain. He got to that mark with one of his best performances of the year Tuesday, as no Oakland hitter got past second base on his watch. Lorenzen worked as a starter full-time for the first season since 2015, posting a 4.24 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 85:44 K:BB over 97.2 innings in his 18 starts this year. He could remain in the Angels' rotation in 2023 if he signs a new contract with the team.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Sharp in win

    Lorenzen (8-6) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one unearned run on three hits and three walks with eight strikeouts over five innings against the Athletics.

    The only damage on Lorenzen came in the first inning on a single from Conner Capel, though the run was unearned. The 30-year-old right-hander retired 16 of the next 19 batters he faced while producing seven swinging strikeouts on the evening. Lorenzen has won his last two decisions, and Wednesday's outing was the first time since May 21 that he didn't allow an earned run in a start.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Strikes out seven

    Lorenzen allowed three earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out seven across five innings Thursday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.

    Lorenzen allowed one run prior to exiting the game in the sixth, though two inherited runners crossed the plate to sour his day. He managed 14 swinging strikes to back his seven punchouts, which marked his highest strikeout total in his last six starts. Since returning from the injured list Sept. 9, Lorenzen has a 3.06 ERA and 15:8 K:BB across 17.2 frames.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Collects win Friday

    Lorenzen (7-6) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings to earn the win Friday over the Mariners.

    It wasn't a pretty start for Lorenzen, as he gave up a solo home run to Julio Rodriguez and a two-run homer to Carlos Santana, but the Angels were able to outhit their starter's problems. Despite the win, this was a step back for Lorenzen after he allowed only one run in 5.2 innings versus the Astros in his return from a shoulder strain last Friday. The right-hander now has a 4.74 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 63:36 K:BB through 81.2 innings across 15 starts this year. He's projected for a road start against the Rangers next week.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Walks four in return

    Lorenzen gave up one earned run on three hits and four walks while striking out two in a 4-3 loss to the Astros on Friday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Lorenzen held his own against the dangerous Astros lineup, making it into the sixth inning before giving up his first and only earned run on a solo shot by Jeremy Pena. The four walks issued by Lorenzen are a sign that he might still be a little rusty after just coming off of the 60-day injured list due to a shoulder injury. Lorenzen was forced to settle for a no-decision and tallied only his 57th strikeout of the year in 76.2 innings pitched. The 30-year-old right-hander will carry an ERA of 4.70 into his next expected start against the Mariners.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Officially activated by Angels

    Lorenzen (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list ahead of Friday's start against the Astros.

    Lorenzen was on the 60-day IL since early July due to a right shoulder strain, but he recently made three rehab appearances and posted a 7.11 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 12.2 innings. The right-hander lasted six innings during his most recent rehab outing, so it's unlikely that he'll face significant restrictions during Friday's start.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Returning from injured list Friday

    Lorenzen (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Friday against the Astros, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Lorenzen has been sidelined by a strained right shoulder since early July, but he's poised to return this week after making three rehab starts in the minors. The 30-year-old has a 4.94 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 55:30 K:BB across 71 frames in 13 starts this year.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Next rehab start set

    Lorenzen (shoulder) will continue his rehab assignment Friday with Single-A Inland Empire, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Lorenzen surrendered six runs over 3.2 innings during his second rehab outing with Triple-A Salt Lake last weekend, and he'll require at least one more start in the minors before potentially rejoining the Angels. The 30-year-old has been sidelined by the shoulder strain since July 1 and has a 4.94 ERA this season in his first extended run as a starter since his rookie campaign in 2015.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: May require another rehab start

    Lorenzen (shoulder) is feeling strong following his latest rehab start, but he might be asked to pitch in one more minor-league game before coming off the 60-day injured list, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Lorenzen's second rehab start took place with Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, surrendering six runs on seven hits and one walk while fanning six over 3.2 innings. Despite the rough outing, he's closing in on a return from a right shoulder strain and will likely make one final start later in the week for Salt Lake before being activated next week.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Embarking on rehab assignment

    Lorenzen (shoulder) threw 45 pitches over three innings during a simulated game Tuesday and will next report to Triple-A Salt Lake to begin a rehab assignment, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    The right-hander progressed to throwing bullpen sessions last week and has now been cleared for game action in the minors. Lorenzen is eligible to be activated from the 60-day IL in early September and is expected to make two rehab starts before rejoining the big-league rotation.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Throwing bullpens

    Lorenzen (shoulder) has been throwing bullpen sessions without issues, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Lorenzen has been out with a shoulder strain since early July, and his placement on the 60-day injured list last week means he'll be ineligible to return before early September. He doesn't appear to be advanced enough in his rehab to beat that timetable, but it's a positive that he's taking steps in the right direction.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Lorenzen (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    Lorenzen has been out with a shoulder strain since early July and suffered a setback a few weeks later. He's been throwing again for a week and could begin a rehab assignment soon, but this transaction means he'll be ineligible to return to the active roster before early September.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Resumes throwing

    Lorenzen (shoulder) recently restarted a throwing program, and he could begin a rehab assignment soon, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Lorenzen was placed on the 15-day IL in early July, and he was able to start a throwing program about a week later. However, the right-hander subsequently had a setback that resulted in him being scratched from a rehab start. He's now back to throwing, but he'll need to progress to a rehab stint before he's able to rejoin the big club. Mid-August appears to be the earliest timeframe for his return.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Suffers setback in recovery

    Lorenzen (shoulder) recently had a setback in his recovery and has been scratched from his rehab start at Double-A Rocket City, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Lorenzen's rehab start likely would have been one of the final steps in his recovery process, but he'll now rest for a few days before restarting his throwing program. It seems likely that the right-hander's setback will force him to stay on the injured list until sometime in August.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Plays catch Tuesday

    Lorenzen (shoulder) played catch Tuesday as the beginning of a throwing program, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Lorenzen went on the 15-day IL on July 7 due to a right shoulder strain. A subsequent MRI revealed no structural damage, and he's now been able to resume throwing. Lorenzen doesn't have a concrete timeline for a return, but he could be back soon after the All-Star break.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: MRI shows no structural damage

    Lorenzen's shoulder showed no structural damage in an MRI taken Friday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Lorenzen hit the injured list Thursday with a right shoulder strain, an injury which may partially explain his 13.09 ERA and 2.55 WHIP across his last three starts. Friday's test results indicate that he's avoided a worst-case scenario, but he still has more treatment to get through before he begins a throwing program.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Out with shoulder strain

    Lorenzen was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to July 4, due to a right shoulder strain.

    It's unclear exactly how long Lorenzen has been dealing with the injury, though he's struggled across his past three starts with a 9:11 K:BB and 16 earned runs allowed over 11 innings. According to Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic, the 30-year-old is scheduled to undergo an MRI, the results of which should provide an indication of whether or not he'll spend more than the 15-day minimum on the shelf.
