Lauer allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Friday.
He was far from dominant, inducing only five swinging strikes on 80 pitches, but this was a commendable effort against a tough lineup. Lauer's strikeout rate is up slightly but his skill set is not particularly exciting -- he's a streaming option at best in most leagues. With the Padres temporarily moving to a six-man rotation, Lauer projects to make his next start next weekend in Colorado.
Lauer is expected to make his next start Friday against the Dodgers in San Diego, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Lauer was listed as the Padres' probable starter for Thursday's series finale in Atlanta, but he now projects to lead off a six-game homestand with San Diego planning to add a temporary sixth starter to the mix in Triple-A El Paso hurler Cal Quantrill, who will take the hill Wednesday. The move back a day in the pitching schedule should prove beneficial to Lauer, who owns a career 3.86 ERA at Petco Park compared to a 4.89 mark in road venues.
Lauer allowed two runs on two hits with six strikeouts and three walks across 5.2 innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Saturday.
The 23-year-old nearly held the Nationals scoreless through six innings, but he allowed a game-tying homer with two outs in the fifth on the last pitch he threw. Because of that, Lauer had to settle for the no-decision. Still, it was a strong outing for Lauer, who has been searching for some consistency since throwing six shutout innings during his first outing of the year. Lauer is 2-3 with a 4.41 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 32.2 innings this season. His next outing will likely be on the road Thursday against the Braves.
Lauer (2-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits with five strikeouts and two walks across five innings in a loss to the Reds on Saturday.
The 23-year-old kept the ball in the yard, which has been an issue for him this year, but the Reds scratched out three runs on their six hits. Lauer has displayed great control this season, but opposing hitters are batting .290 against him, which has led to him posting a 1.41 WHIP. Lauer is also 2-3 with a 4.67 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 27 innings. His next start should be against the Nationals on the road Saturday.
Lauer (2-2) yielded three runs on eight hits in five innings, taking the loss against Arizona on Sunday. He struck out five batters.
After six shutout innings in his 2019 debut, Lauer has given up 12 runs over his last three outings, raising his season ERA to 4.91 in 22 innings. His biggest mistake Sunday was a two-run shot off Ketel Marte's bat in the third inning. Lauer will look to get back in the win column at home against the Reds on Saturday.
