  • 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.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Has strong outing spoiled

    Lorenzen did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs (zero earned) on two hits and one walk over 6.2 scoreless innings against the White Sox. He struck out four.

    Lorenzen bounced back from a poor last start in which he gave up three home runs to toss 6.2 innings with zero earned runs Saturday. The 31-year-old has had a rollercoaster 2023, giving up five or more earned runs three times while giving up one or fewer earned runs in his other five appearances. Through eight starts (46.1 innings), Lorenzen owns a 3.50 ERA and 1.10 WHIP to pair with a 2.92 K/BB. Though Lorenzen is best utilized as a matchup-based streamer and daily fantasy option due to his volatility, he can provide value to managers who are willing to put up with the occasional blow-up start.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Tagged for five runs Monday

    Lorenzen allowed five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five batters over 5.2 innings in a no-decision during Monday's 8-5 win over the Royals in 10 innings.

    Detroit gave Lorenzen a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but that was quickly erased when he surrendered three runs in the bottom of the frame. Those runs came by way of homers by Vinnie Pasquantino and Salvador Perez. Lorenzen settled down to hold the Royals scoreless between the second and fourth innings, but he served up another long ball -- a two-run shot by Jackie Bradley -- in the fifth. The three homers were the most the right-hander has surrendered in a game this season, and it was the third time in seven appearances that he has given up five or more runs. On the plus side, Lorenzen has been very good across his other four outings, posting a 0.72 ERA and 0.88 WHIP over 25 frames.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Third straight quality start

    Lorenzen (2-2) earned the win Tuesday, allowing five hits and two walks over six scoreless innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out seven.

    Lorenzen has been excellent of late -- he's gone 2-1 in his last three starts while allowing just two runs over 20 innings in that span. On the season, the 31-year-old Lorenzen is now 2-2 with a 3.44 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 26:9 K:BB through six starts (34 innings). At the very least, Lorenzen is worth a look as a streaming option at this point in the season. He's lined up for another favorable road matchup against the Royals in his next outing.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Pitches well in loss

    Lorenzen (1-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing a run on five hits over seven innings against the Guardians. He struck out three.

    Lorenzen was excellent Tuesday, but he'd ultimately take the loss as the Tigers' offense couldn't get him any support against Shane Bieber. The 31-year-old Lorenzen has pitched seven innings in each of his last two starts, allowing just two runs on nine hits in that span. He now has a 4.18 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB through 28 innings this season.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Looks sharp to earn win in nightcap

    Lorenzen (1-1) allowed one run on four hits across seven innings to earn the win in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Mets. He walked two and struck out one.

    Outside of the low strikeout total, Lorenzen was great, and he was able to earn his first win of the year as the Tigers provided eight runs of support. The righty missed the first three weeks of the season with a groin injury and now has a 5.14 ERA across four starts. He's tentatively lined up to take the mound again Monday against Cleveland, where he'll look to build from this positive outing.

  • Tigers' Michael Lorenzen: Start postponed due to weather

    Lorenzen's scheduled start against the Mets on Tuesday was postponed due to inclement weather, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    Lorenzen will instead likely take the ball against the Mets on Wednesday with Tuesday's postponement being made up in a split doubleheader. The Tigers may need to alter their rotation beyond that point, as Detroit doesn't have another off day until May 11 before a three-game series against the Mariners.
