Michael Lorenzen: Decent Outing, But Not Enough for Win

Michael Lorenzen delivered a mixed performance in Monday's narrow 4-3 victory over the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Lorenzen allowed two earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight over five innings. Despite the decent strikeout numbers, Lorenzen's inability to go deeper into the game and prevent runs continues to be a concern for fantasy managers. His season-long metrics, including a middling 6.8 K/9 and a high 5.21 FIP, suggest that while he can rack up some strikeouts, his overall effectiveness is limited. Fantasy managers should view Lorenzen as a risky play, primarily in deeper leagues or as a streaming option when matchups are favorable. His current form does not inspire confidence for consistent fantasy production.

Lorenzen Struggles Mightily in Loss to Angels

Michael Lorenzen had a rough outing against the Los Angeles Angels, surrendering five earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three over five innings in Wednesday's 7-2 defeat.

Fantasy Impact

This performance marked a significant deviation from his relatively solid season stats, pushing his ERA and WHIP in the wrong direction. With a season ERA now ballooned to 3.52 and a WHIP that has crept up to 1.22, Lorenzen's recent struggles could be a red flag for fantasy managers. His low strikeout rate of 6.4 K/9 continues to limit his upside, and a FIP of 5.28 suggests that his earlier season success might have been overperforming. Fantasy managers should monitor his next few outings closely, as continued performances like this could make him a liability rather than an asset.

Michael Lorenzen provides mixed results on mound Friday against Rays

Michael Lorenzen turned in a mixed performance on the mound in the Rangers' 3-0 victory over the Rays Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Lorenzen allowed just one hit while also walking five and striking out four over five innings for the Rangers Friday. The right-hander has struggled with control of late, walking four or more batters in each of his last two starts on the mound. Fantasy managers will look for Lorenzen to return to his previous form on the mound moving forward, carrying a 3.21 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 15 starts (5-4) on the mound so far this season.

Michael Lorenzen stumbles against Orioles

Michael Lorenzen allowed five earned runs over five innings in the Rangers' 6-5 loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

He surrendered four hits and four walks while striking out three. This outing marks a significant deviation from his otherwise steady season, where he boasts a 3.40 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. The five earned runs have inflated his ERA and exposed some underlying issues, notably his low strikeout rate and high FIP, which suggest he might be overperforming. Fantasy managers should be cautious, as his low BABIP (.222) prior to this game could indicate that some regression was already on the horizon. This performance might be a sign to temper expectations and evaluate other pitching options if his next few outings follow a similar trend.

Michael Lorenzen strikes out five

Michael Lorenzen turned in a solid start in a 6-3 loss to the Brewers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Lorenzen allowed two runs on five hits over five innings of work while striking out five and walking one. He did not factor in the decision, leaving his record at 4-3 following the start. Overalll it has been a good season for Lorenzen, who has a 3.04 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 55 strikeouts over 77 innings of work for the Rangers.
