  • Michael Lorenzen: Holds audition for clubs

    Lorenzen threw for about 16 interested teams in California on Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. For what it's worth, Murray says Lorenzen "impressed" in the session. The veteran right-hander is coming off a productive 2023 campaign split between the Tigers and Phillies, having posted a 4.18 ERA and 111:47 K:BB over 153 innings. He's among the second-tier free-agent starting pitchers still looking for a contract.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Joins roster for NLDS

    Lorenzen is listed on the Phillies' roster for their NLDS matchup with Atlanta, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Lorenzen wasn't a part of the Phillies' wild-card roster as they opted for extra bench depth, but he will rejoin the team as the 13th and final pitcher. The 31-year-old righty posted a 4.18 ERA and 1.21 WGIP through 153 innings and figures to continue working out of the bullpen in the postseason. Weston Wilson lost his spot on the playoff roster to make room for Lorenzen.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Excluded from Phillies' WC roster

    Lorenzen is not on the Phillies' NL Wild Card Series roster, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Lorenzen twirled a no-hitter for the Phillies back on Aug. 9 but posted an 8.01 ERA and 18:15 K:BB over his final 30.1 innings. He would seem to have a shot to be added to the team's NLDS roster should they advance, but the Phils decided he wouldn't be needed for their series against the Marlins.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Notches first save

    Lorenzen struck out one batter in a perfect inning and earned a save against the Mets on Sunday. Lorenzen was blasted for four runs while recording just one out in his first appearance out of the bullpen Sept. 19 but rebounded with his first save since 2021 on Sunday. He posted an ugly 7.96 ERA over his last five starts before being shifted to the bullpen. It's unclear exactly what role the Phillies intend to use Lorenzen in moving forward and in the postseason. He owns a 4.26 ERA through 150 innings and a 5.89 ERA in 44.1 frames with Philadelphia.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Filling piggyback role

    Lorenzen and Cristopher Sanchez will be used in a piggyback role Tuesday against Atlanta, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. The Phillies may or may not have acquired Lorenzen at the deadline with the intention of using him in relief during the postseason, but his 7.96 ERA and 1.85 WHIP over his last five starts has certainly pushed him in that direction. Tuesday's outing could be a test for an arrangement the team hopes to use in the playoffs, with the left-handed Sanchez likely to throw a handful of innings before turning it over to the right-handed Lorenzen for a few more. Whether the setup is used more than once or if Lorenzen will move to a standard bullpen role following Tuesday's appearance is not yet clear.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Grabs win in nightcap

    Lorenzen (4-2) earned the win Monday, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks over five innings in a 7-5 victory over Atlanta. He struck out three. Lorenzen's final line could've looked much better if it wasn't for Matt Olson -- the first baseman drove in all four Atlanta runs with a pair of home runs. Still, Lorenzen pitched well enough to earn the win behind the Phillies' seven-run outburst. Since he no-hit the Nationals on Aug. 9, the 31-year-old Lorenzen has struggled to a 7.96 ERA in his subsequent five starts (26 innings). Overall, he sports a 4.06 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP and 107:43 K:BB across 25 starts (148.2 innings) between the Phillies and Tigers this season. Lorenzen's currently lined up for a rematch with Atlanta on the road in his next outing.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Struggles in San Diego

    Lorenzen (8-9) allowed seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and three walks while striking out one over six innings to take the loss Tuesday versus the Padres. Lorenzen and Pedro Avila traded zeroes for the first three frames, but the Padres' offense came to life after that. Lorenzen was very good in his first two starts for the Phillies, but he's allowed 22 runs (19 earned) over his last four outings, spanning 21 innings. The right-hander is at a 3.95 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 104:41 K:BB through 143.2 innings across 24 starts this season. He's projected to make his next start at home in a difficult matchup versus Atlanta.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Notches quality start, win

    Lorenzen (3-1) earned the win Tuesday, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks over six innings against the Angels. He struck out five. The 31-year-old right-hander allowed individual runs to score in four consecutive innings, with Luis Rengifo launching solo home runs in the second and fourth innings, and Shohei Ohtani hitting run-scoring singles in the third and fifth. Fortunately for fantasy managers in leagues that reward quality starts, one of Lorenzen's runs was unearned due to his own throwing error. In three starts since throwing 124 pitches in his no-hitter Aug. 9, he has unsurprisingly struggled, posting a 7.80 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 10:6 K:BB while yielding five home runs across 15 innings. Lorenzen's next start is tentatively scheduled to take place in San Diego early next week.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Allows four runs in no-decision

    Lorenzen did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks over 5.2 innings against San Francisco. He struck out four. Lorenzen has struggled since throwing 124 pitches in his no-hitter against the Nationals, allowing 10 earned runs on 16 hits in his subsequent two starts (nine innings). Overall, he's 7-8 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 98:36 K:BB across 22 starts (131.2 innings) this season. Lorenzen will look to get back in the win column in his next outing, currently scheduled for early next week against the Angels.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Hit hard by Nats

    Lorenzen (7-8) took the loss Friday, coughing up seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and a walk over 3.1 innings as the Phillies fell 8-7 to the Nationals. He struck out one. The last time Lorenzen faced the Nats, he no-hit them. This time Washington was ready, batting around in a six-run fourth inning to chase the right-hander from the game. Despite the stumble, Lorenzen still has a 3.54 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 11:6 K:BB through 20.1 innings since joining the Phillies at the trade deadline, winning two of his three starts. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next outing, likely to come at home next week against the Giants.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Next start pushed back

    Lorenzen's next start is expected to be next Friday in Washington, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. After tossing a no-hitter and notching his name into the history books Wednesday against the Nationals, Lorenzen will get some added rest between starts. He racked up 124 pitches to complete the no-hitter, so the 31-year-old will get eight days of rest. The Phillies had been operating with a six-man rotation, but it's unclear if they will stick with that the next time through, as they have two off days next week. Regardless, Lorenzen will stay in the mix next weekend while facing the same team he just tossed a no-hitter against, although this time it will be a road matchup against the Nationals.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: No-hits Nats

    Lorenzen (7-7) no-hit the Nationals on Wednesday, issuing four walks while striking out five in a 7-0 win. Lorenzen added his name to the history books Wednesday in his first home start with the Phillies. The right-hander did issue four walks and needed 124 pitches to deliver Philadelphia's first no-hitter since Cole Hamels' in 2015. The historic performance was an exclamation point in what's been a stellar campaign for Lorenzen -- he's allowed just five runs over his last six starts (31.2 innings), working to a pristine 1.11 ERA in that span. Overall, his ERA is down to 3.23 with a 1.04 WHIP and 93:32 K:BB across 20 starts (122.2 innings) this season between Philadelphia and Detroit.

  • Phillies' Michael Lorenzen: Debuting for Phillies on Thursday

    Lorenzen will make his first start for the Phillies on Thursday at Miami, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Lorenzen was acquired earlier Tuesday from the Tigers, for whom he had delivered a 3.58 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 83:27 K:BB through 105.2 innings (18 starts) this season. Philadelphia is going to roll with a six-man rotation for the time being, per Zolecki, but Ranger Suarez or Cristopher Sanchez could eventually be pushed to the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Falls to former team Thursday

    Lorenzen (5-7) took the loss against the Angels in Game 1 of a doubleheader Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven batters over five innings. Lorenzen has thrived since departing the Angels to join Detroit in the offseason, earning his first career All-Star selection and coming into Thursday having tossed three straight scoreless outings. However, he was no match for Shohei Ohtani in the matinee of the twin bill, as the two-way star tossed a complete-game shutout to hand Lorenzen the loss. Despite the defeat, Lorenzen pitched fairly well, compiling 16 swinging strikes and tying a season high with seven punchouts. The right-hander's next start is tentatively scheduled to be a road matchup against the Pirates next week.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Extends scoreless streak in win

    Lorenzen (5-6) earned the win Thursday, allowing three hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings against the Royals. He struck out three. Lorenzen faced little resistance from the Royals on Thursday, needing just 89 pitches to deliver seven scoreless frames. The 31-year-old Lorenzen hasn't allowed a run in his last three starts (18.2 innings), lowering his ERA to 3.49 with a 1.09 WHIP and 76:26 K:BB through 17 starts (100.2 innings) this season. Lorenzen will look to extend his streak in his next outing, currently scheduled for next week against the Angels.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Earns win before All-Star Game

    Lorenzen (3-6) tossed five scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Athletics. He allowed three hits and struck out four. Lorenzen powered through a subpar Oakland lineup and got plenty of support in the 9-0 win. The righty's next appearance is set for Tuesday's All-Star Game, which will be his first time in the Midsummer Classic. Lorenzen finishes the first half with a 4.03 ERA and 66 strikeouts across 87 innings (15 starts). Those numbers don't jump off the page, but they've been much needed on a Detroit pitching staff that has been decimated by injuries.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Surrenders two runs in no-decision

    Lorenzen allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four over five innings Sunday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision. Lorenzen posted his second consecutive start allowing two runs or less but failed to reach six innings for the first time since May 22. He generated eight whiffs on the day and gave up just two extra-base hits, one of which was a two-run homer to Donovan Solano in the third inning. Lorenzen has not picked up a win since May 16, but Sunday's effort brought his ERA down to a 3.97 to go with a 1.16 WHIP and 58:19 K:BB over 77 innings. He lines up for an uninviting road game in Colorado this weekend.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Allows six runs in loss

    Lorenzen (2-4) allowed six runs on nine hits across six innings to take the loss in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Atlanta. He walked two and struck out three. Lorenzen allowed six runs for the second straight start, with three solo home runs accounting for half of the damage Wednesday. The righty had a 3.21 ERA before this rough patch but has seen that balloon to 4.23. Lorenzen has a fairly thin margin of error because he doesn't miss a ton of bats, and he's now sitting at 47 strikeouts through 66 innings this season. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, which should come early next week against the Royals.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Possible waiver wire pickups

    If what Michael Lorenzen has been doing lately is something he's capable of sustaining, we probably would have seen it before this year. Having said that, it's lasted long enough that you probably want to take a flier just in case. His latest outing Saturday saw him allow just one run on two hits in seven innings. It was the fifth start in six in which he allowed one earned run or fewer over six innings or more, giving him a 1.83 ERA during that stretch. He's still not missing bats at a useful rate or even limiting hard contact, but what he is doing is pounding the strike zone like never before, with 68.2 percent of his pitches going for strikes compared to 62.2 percent prior to 2023. It seems unavoidable he'll give up more hits moving forward, but he could possibly settle in as an efficient workhorse type.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Strong start wasted Saturday

    Lorenzen didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the White Sox, allowing one run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out six without walking a batter. The right-hander did uncork two wild pitches, one of which brought home the only run against him -- foreshadowing the game's ending, when a Jose Cisnero wild pitch ricocheted off the mask of home plate umpire Cory Blaser and allowed Yoan Moncada to score -- but otherwise Lorenzen delivered arguably his best outing of the season. He's produced quality starts in five of his last six trips to the mound, posting a 1.83 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 26:7 K:BB in 39.1 innings over that stretch, and he'll look to keep rolling in his next start, which is likely to come at home next weekend against the Diamondbacks.
