Michael Lorenzen is an American professional baseball pitcher and outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played in MLB for the Cincinnati Reds.

After a strong second season in which he posted a 3.13 ERA in 120 2/3 innings as a starter for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos of the AA Southern League, he was promoted to the majors in less than two years.

Even though the Reds were hesitant to let him throw beyond the seventh inning, his record still stood at a respectable 4-6. While attending spring training in 2015, he came close to making the Reds’ starting lineup.

A three-start stint with the Louisville Bats was followed by a promotion to Triple-A Louisville after Homer Bailey went down for the season.

On April 29th, he made his major league debut against the Milwaukee Brewers and pitched admirably despite allowing single home runs to Adam Lind, Khris Davis, and Ryan Braun all in the same game.

No further runs were allowed, he struck out five times and even earned his first big league hit in his first at-bat, a nice single to right off Matt Garza.
