Padres' Eric Lauer: Allows three runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer did not factor into the decision against Tampa Bay on Tuesday, completing five innings and giving up three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four.

Lauer was shaky early, giving up single runs in the first two innings, but settled down to allow only one more tally the rest of the way. He exited the game staked to a one-run lead but was denied a victory when the San Diego bullpen allowed four runs over the final four frames. Lauer now owns a 4.55 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 114.2 innings this season and will head to Cincinnati to face the Reds on Monday in his next scheduled start.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Knocked around in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer did not factor into the decision against Colorado on Thursday, throwing four innings and giving up three runs on 10 hits while striking out two.

Lauer did little to stifle the Rockies' offense as he gave up at least one hit in each inning and induced only four swinging strikes. The result could have been worse if not for a number of outstanding defensive plays behind him, including a putout at home plate followed by a dazzling double play to end the fourth inning after Lauer allowed three consecutive singles to begin the frame. The 24-year-old will carry a 4.51 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 89:31 K:BB over 109.2 innings into his next scheduled start, at home against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Fans six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (6-8) earned the win Friday after holding the Dodgers to two runs on three hits while striking out six over six innings.

Lauer's only blemish of the night came in the form of a two-run home run off the bat of Cody Bellinger. Otherwise, the left-hander quieted a dangerous Dodgers lineup without issuing any free passes. The 24-year-old has a 4.43 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 87:31 K:BB over 21 appearances this season. Lauer will take the hill next for a Thursday matchup against the Rockies.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Bumped back one day in schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer is slated to make his next start Friday against the Dodgers.

Lauer had been ahead of Joey Lucchesi in the pitching schedule, but the two will switch spots after the former worked in relief Sunday against the Giants. The change won't mean much for fantasy purposes, as Lucchesi will get the ball for the series opener with the Dodgers while Lauer also draws the same opponent. Lauer only tossed 14 pitches in the relief appearance over the weekend, so he shouldn't face any workload restrictions either while returning to the mound on his normal four days' rest.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Fails to complete three innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (5-8) allowed four runs on six hits with three walks and a strikeout across 2.1 innings while taking a loss against the Mets on Thursday.

The 24-year-old gave up four runs in the first and that was it for the rest of the game from both offenses. Lauer faced 13 batters through the first two frames, and then when the Mets had first and third with one out during the third, the Padres went to the bullpen. Lauer has lost four straight decisions and hasn't won a game since June 3. He owns a 4.58 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 80 strikeouts in 98.1 innings this season. Lauer will look to break his losing streak against the lowly Orioles at home Tuesday.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Gives up grand slam in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer allowed five runs on six hits with three walks and seven strikeouts across 4.2 innings during a no-decision against the Cubs on Friday.

Two home runs, including a grand slam, were Lauer's undoing Friday afternoon. He had allowed just three homers in his last 10 appearances, and that hasn't helped him win many games. This was his third straight no-decision, and sixth consecutive start without a win. He avoided a loss Friday because of the Padres offense, but Lauer is 5-7 with a 4.31 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 79 strikeouts in 96 innings this season. His next start is scheduled to come at the Mets on Thursday.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Back from bereavement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (personal) was reinstated from the bereavement list Wednesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Lauer is back with the big club after spending five days on the bereavement list. The southpaw is scheduled to return to the rotation Friday against the Cubs. Robbie Erlin was optioned to the minors to free up a roster spot for Lauer.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Placed on bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was placed on the bereavement list Friday.

He needs to miss a minimum of three games, but can still take the ball on turn July 16 in Miami, so this won't affect his fantasy value.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer did not factor into the decision during Friday's win at Dodger Stadium, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings.

As a 6.9 earthquake rattled the stadium, Lauer calmly delivered two strikes to Enrique Hernandez then got him to fly out. Overall, it was a strong outing for the 24-year-old, who improves to 4-0 against the Dodgers in five career starts. Lauer now sports a 4.04 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 72:25 K:BB over 17 appearances this season.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Takes no-decision in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer did not factor into the decision during Friday's win over the Cardinals, surrendering one run on six hits and a walk while striking out three over four innings.

Despite holding the Cardinals to one run, it took Lauer 98 pitches to get through four innings. The southpaw just didn't have his best stuff. He retired the top of the lineup in the first inning but loaded the bases with consecutive hits in the second. Lauer then recorded two outs but allowed a single to Tommy Edman to give the Cardinals a 1-0 lead. On the bright side, the 24-year-old has only allowed one home run in June. Lauer now owns a 4.22 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 66:24 K:BB. He'll look to bounce back in a more favorable matchup against the Giants on Wednesday.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Suffers tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (5-7) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts while taking a loss against the Pirates on Friday.

The left-hander pitched well against the Pirates for the second time this season, but an unearned run in the seventh helped hand him the loss. That's three straight losses for Lauer, but at least he pitched much better in this outing than his last two. He has a 4.32 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 81.1 innings this season. His next start is scheduled against the Cardinals at home Friday.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Wrecked by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (5-6) took the loss Saturday, coughing up five runs on 10 hits and two walks over 2.2 innings while striking out two as the Padres were downed 14-8 by the Rockies.

While he managed to keep the ball in the yard, the Rockies pummeled Lauer for four doubles among the 10 hits in a typical Coors Field slugfest. The southpaw will carry a 4.60 ERA and 59:22 K:BB through 74.1 innings into his next start Friday in Pittsburgh.

Padres' Eric Lauer: No support in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (5-5) allowed four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and three walks over seven innings in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Nationals. He struck out five and took the loss.

Lauer was unable to keep pace with Nationals star Max Scherzer on Saturday, and the Padres didn't get on the board until the ninth inning. Lauer owns a 4.14 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 57 strikeouts over 71.2 innings. He lines up for his next start versus the Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Moves to 5-4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (5-4) picked up the win against the Phillies on Monday, giving up two hits and one earned run over six innings, striking out three and walking three as the Padres won 8-2.

Lauer turned in a quality start in picking up his fifth win of the season, giving up just one earned for a fourth consecutive outing following an eight-run blowup against the Rockies on May 10. He's lowered his ERA from 5.75 to 4.18 over that strong run to go along with a 52:17 K:BB over 64.2 innings. He'll look to keep it going in his next start, which is scheduled for Saturday on the road against the Nationals.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Strikes out four in fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (4-4) struck out four and picked up the win in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over the Yankees, giving up one run on four hits and no walks over 5.1 innings.

Lauer shut out the Yankees until the fourth inning, when Gary Sanchez blasted a solo homer for the Yankees' first run. The left-hander didn't allow more than one hit in an inning until the sixth, when he allowed two singles before being lifted after 83 pitches. The 23-year-old will carry a 4.45 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 49:14 K:BB over 58.2 innings into his next start Monday at home against the Phillies.

May 23, 2019 03:04 PM
Padres' Eric Lauer: Sharp in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (3-4) picked up the win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, giving up one earned run on four hits over seven strong innings, striking out seven and walking none in a 5-2 victory.

The left-hander has bounced back from an eight-run blowup against the Rockies on May 10 with a pair of solid starts, as he's given up just one earned run over 12.2 innings since the meltdown in Colorado. That lowers his ERA to 4.73 and his WHIP to 1.31 to go along with a 45:14 K:BB through 53.1 innings. Lauer lines up to take the mound next on the road against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Effective in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer limited the Pirates to two runs (one earned) on seven hits in 5.2 innings Thursday but did not factor in the decision. He struck out three and did not issue a walk.

It was a nice bounce-back game for Lauer after getting shelled in Colorado in his previous start, though it bears mentioning that he was facing a Pirates club ranked 28th in the league in scoring. Still, he was pulled one out away from a quality start and gave up fewer than two earned runs for the first time since his first outing of the season. He'll face Arizona on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.

May 11, 2019 04:28 AM
Padres' Eric Lauer: Crushed in Coors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (2-4) took the loss Friday as the Padres got routed 12-2 by the Rockies, coughing up eight runs on eight hits and two walks over three-plus innings while striking out one.

The southpaw was keeping things together in Coors (relatively speaking) until the fourth inning, when he allowed the first six Colorado batters to reach base before getting the hook. Lauer will take a 5.75 ERA and 35:14 K:BB through 40.2 innings into his next start Thursday, at home against the Pirates.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Pitches five innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Eric Lauer: Likely to make next start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
