RP - CIN - IL60
Michael Lorenzen (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list on Wednesday. The Reds claimed Phillip Diehl off waivers to replace Lorenzen on the roster.
Coming out of Spring Training, the Reds were hopeful that Lorenzen would miss just one or two turns through the rotation. This has turned into a worst-case scenario with his transfer to the 60-day injured list. He'll now be out until at least June. Chances are either Jose De Leon or Jeff Hoffman sticks in the Reds' rotation while Lorenzen is on the mend.
Michael Lorenzen (shoulder) has officially been placed on the 10-IL, according to the Reds.
Lorenzen has been dealing with a minor shoulder strain. He reportedly suffered a small setback in his recovery on Wednesday, and now he has officially been placed on the 10-day IL. Multiple Reds starters are struggling with injuries to start the season, so if Lorenzen is back soon there's still a chance he could make his way into the rotation. However, that is far from a guarantee at this point, so Lorenzen is still a 'wait and see' for now in most leagues.
Reds pitching coach Derek Johnson says RHP Michael Lorenzen (shoulder) suffered a "small setback."
Lorenzen is dealing with a minor shoulder strain but there remains no timetable for his return. He had been competing for a rotation spot this spring but fantasy managers can safely ignore him in redraft leagues for now.
Reds reliever Michael Lorenzen (shoulder strain) could be nearing a return. He threw a bullpen session recently and feels confident that he can return soon.
Lorenzen added that he fiddled with a new curveball during the bullpen session and saw positive results. "During my 'pen, I threw two curveballs with a little adjustment that [pitching coach Derek Johnson] told me about. It was, 'Oh, wow. That’s a completely different pitch.'" The right-hander had a 4.28 ERA over 18 games last year (two starts). Over 33.2 innings, he allowed 16 earned runs on 30 hits and 17 walks while striking out 35.
Cincinnati Reds RHP Michael Lorenzen is dealing with a "slight" shoulder strain, according to general manager Nick Krall.
Lorenzen exited his "B game" start on Saturday in the third inning due to the shoulder issue. It doesn't seem to be a serious issue at this point but the Reds will likely hold him out until they are certain he's 100-percent. Krall expressed optimism that Lorenzen will be ready for Opening Day but he can't afford any type of setbacks with the regular season fast approaching.
