Lorenzen available from bullpen
After he made his expected final start of 2015 on Wednesday at San Francisco, Michael Lorenzen is now rested and ready for use out of the bullpen. But manager Bryan Price didn’t rule out entirely that Lorenzen could get another start if there is a shortage of arms.
Lorenzen has pitched 151 2/3 innings this season, combined, at Triple-A and the Majors. His limit was 150-155 innings.
“With the rotation being what it is, if for some reason one of these guys can’t start, then maybe Lorenzen is back in there,” Price said on Monday. “If we go over his innings goal by 5-10 or 12 innings, that’s just baseball. I don’t think he’s going to break because we set a soft ceiling and he exceeds that. He’s really our next line as a starter if we have any other issues with our current starting five.”
