Orioles' Zac Lowther: Goes unclaimed off waivers
The Orioles outrighted Lowther to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Lowther remains in the organization after he went unclaimed off waivers when the Orioles designated him for assignment last week. The 26-year-old lefty tossed 5.1 innings of long relief in his lone appearance with Baltimore on May 31 before he was optioned back to Norfolk and later dropped from the 40-man roster....

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Loses 40-man spot
The Orioles designated Lowther for assignment Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
The transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for infielder Jonathan Arauz, whom the Orioles claimed off waivers from the Red Sox on Wednesday. Lowther was optioned to Norfolk on June 1, one day after he gave up six runs (five earned) across 5.1 innings of long relief in his lone appearance of the season with the big club.... See More ...

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Sent back to minors
The Orioles optioned Lowther to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.
Lowther will return to the minors one day after he served as the primary pitcher out of the bullpen in Baltimore's 10-0 loss to Seattle. Since he was unlikely to be available for at least a few days after covering 5.1 innings (and giving up six runs) in relief, the Orioles opted to swap Lowther off the active roster for a fresh bullpen arm in Denyi Reyes, who was called up from Norfolk in a corresponding move. Lowther should slot back into the rotation once he rejoins the Triple-A club.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Recalled from Triple-A
Lowther was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.
Lowther made his MLB debut last season, struggling to a 6.67 ERA in 29.2 innings as a swingman. He owns an awful 8.26 ERA through 28.1 frames for Norfolk this season, but he could be needed to provide length behind opening pitcher Bryan Baker in Tuesday's game against the Mariners in what is shaping up to be a bullpen day for the Orioles. Cody Sedlock was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Optioned to Triple-A
Lowther was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Lowther struggled this spring, surrendering four runs on five hits and five walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings. The 25-year-old will begin the season with Triple-A Norfolk, but considering the state of the Orioles' roster, he will likely get a shot with the big-league club at some point this summer. He'll look to improve upon the 6.67 ERA and 1.65 WHIP that he compiled with the Orioles in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Solid in loss
Lowther (1-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on eight hits and struck out four in five innings, taking the loss versus Boston on Wednesday.
It wasn't a bad final start of the year for Lowther, but Baltimore's offense produced just four hits and two walks in the contest. The southpaw was better to finish the season with just five runs (four earned) allowed in his final 13.1 innings across three starts. He ended the season with a 6.67 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 30:13 K:BB in 29.2 innings. Lowther will likely be considered for a spot in the rotation heading into 2022.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Delivers five shutout innings
Lowther (1-2) got the win in Thursday's 3-0 victory over Texas, allowing three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in five scoreless innings.
Facing the scuffling Rangers, Lowther parlayed five solid innings into his first Major-League win. While he required 94 pitches to navigate the five frames, he notched seven strikeouts and had minimal traffic on the bases in the best outing of the 25-year-old rookie's short career. He's currently scheduled to take the hill against the Red Sox next week.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Doomed by first inning
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Nightmarish start Sunday
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
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Called up ahead of start
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Slated to start Monday
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Rejoins Triple-A roster
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.... See More ...

Orioles' Zac Lowther: Progressing in rehab
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Rehab starting Monday
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Out with strained shoulder
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Optioned to Triple-A
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
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.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zac Lowther: Back with Orioles
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....
