Lauer had started in both of his prior two appearances, but after he was tagged for seven runs in just two innings in his June 1 outing versus the Tigers, the southpaw no longer looks like he'll be part of a six-man rotation. Instead, he was summoned from the bullpen to eat innings after Wednesday's starter, Brett Anderson, was hit hard before being pulled for a pinch hitter in the top of the fourth. Most of Lauer's future relief opportunities are likely to come in low-leverage spots or mop-up situations.
