Brewers' Eric Lauer: Serving as sixth starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer will serve at least temporarily as the Brewers' sixth starter and will get the ball Monday against the Reds, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The Brewers are in the middle of a 16-day stretch with no off days and want to give their regular rotation some extra rest, so they'll turn to Lauer for a start or two. The lefty has made four starts and three relief appearances this season, posting a poor 4.82 ERA despite a solid combination of a 27.0 percent strikeout rate and a 7.4 percent walk rate.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Shifts to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer tossed four innings of long relief Wednesday in the Brewers' 7-3 loss to the Reds, giving up two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out six.

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.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Mauled by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (1-2) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering seven runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over two-plus innings as the Brewers were downed 10-7 by the Tigers. He struck out five.

The ball was flying at American Family Field as the two teams combined for nine homers, and Lauer took the worst of it. The southpaw has been tagged for eight long balls in only 24 innings this season, leading to a 4.88 ERA despite his strong 27:5 K:BB. However, he'll likely remain in a sixth starter/swingman role for the Brewers as they try to find some consistency at the back of their rotation.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Gets another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer is listed as Milwaukee's probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

The Brewers haven't revealed whether they'll stick with a six-man rotation during the upcoming week, but Lauer's inclusion on the pitching schedule would suggest that's the case. Lauer will be rewarded with a second straight turn through the rotation after he limited the Padres to one run on four hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision May 26.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Effective against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out six across six innings Wednesday against the Padres. He did not factor into the decision.

Lauer was recalled from Triple-A Nashville prior to this start, and he performed well both from the mound and with his bat. None of the four hits he surrendered went for extra bases, and he also racked up an impressive 14 swinging strikes across 85 total pitches. Lauer also provided the only offense for the Brewers, slugging a solo homer in the third inning. For the season, he now owns a 2.45 ERA with a 22:3 K:BB across 22 innings of work as both a reliever and starter.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Called up ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was recalled by the Brewers ahead of his scheduled start against the Padres on Wednesday.

Lauer was sent to Triple-A Nashville on May 15 and allowed one hit and two walks while striking out 12 in five innings during his lone start with the minor-league club. Lauer made four appearances (two starts) for Milwaukee earlier in the year and recorded a 2.81 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 16 innings. Right-hander Josh Lindblom was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Starting Wednesday vs. former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer will be recalled from Triple-A Nashville to start Wednesday against the Padres, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The 25-year-old was demoted May 15 but will rejoin the rotation and start Wednesday against his former ballclub. Lauer has pitched well for the Brewers in four appearances (two starts), posting a 2.81 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 16:2 K:BB over 16 innings.

May 15, 2021 05:16 PM
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

Lauer had recently shifted to a bullpen role but is expected to build back up as a starter in the minors. In two starts and two relief appearances this season, Lauer owns a 2.81 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 16:2 K:BB. Hoby Milner was called up in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Shifting to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer will move to the bullpen and is expected to pitch Sunday against the Marlins, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The 25-year-old will shift to the bullpen Sunday with Brett Anderson (hamstring) returning from the injured list and rejoining the starting rotation. Lauer allowed six runs (two earned) on 12 hits with a 10:2 K:BB in 11 frames over two spot starts.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Buried by long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (1-1) allowed six runs (two earned) on eight hits and no walks while striking out seven across six innings Tuesday to take the loss against the Phillies.

Lauer surrendered three home runs, which accounted for five of his six earned runs. His line was spared by four unearned runs, which came after Travis Shaw misplaced a ball at third base in the the third inning. Even so, it was a concerning performance for Lauer, who allowed 1.6 HR/9 in 2020. As for this season, Lauer has a 1.64 ERA with a 10:2 K:BB across 11 innings. The Brewers' pitching staff is currently decimated by injuries, which could result in Lauer receiving another turn through the rotation Sunday in Miami.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Receives second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer is listed as the Brewers' probable starter for Tuesday's game in Philadelphia, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

Heading into the upcoming week, Milwaukee remains without two members of its Opening Day rotation (Corbin Burnes and Brett Anderson), while two of the team's top options for spot starts in Josh Lindblom (knee) and Zack Godley (finger) are also on the injured list. As a result, Lauer will pick up a second start after he held his own in his season debut Thursday against the Dodgers, when he picked up the win while working five scoreless frames. He'll tentatively line up for a two-start week, with his second turn likely to come next Sunday in Miami if none of Burnes (COVID-19 IL), Anderson (hamstring), Lindblom or Godley is activated before the weekend.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Strong in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer (1-0) beat the Dodgers on Thursday, going five innings and permitting no runs on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts in a 2-1 win.

Making his first start of the season after Zack Godley was placed on the IL, Lauer was able to shut down the Dodgers' high-powered offense before being pulled after only 73 pitches. This was an encouraging first outing on the heels of a disastrous 2020 campaign, and it may have earned Lauer another turn in the Brewers' rotation.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Starting Thursday vs. Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was recalled from the Brewers' alternate training site and will start Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

Zack Godley (finger) landed on the injured list and Lauer will be brought up in a corresponding move to give the rest of the rotation some rest. If he holds his own, Lauer could stick around for another start next week in Philadelphia.

March 20, 2021 03:36 PM
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The 25-year-old gave up eight earned runs and had a 3:7 K:BB over five innings across three appearances in spring training, so it's hardly a surprise he didn't earn a rotation spot. Lauer figures to be in the mix for a promotion when the Brewers need a spot starter this season.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Off to rough start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer has allowed five earned runs over three innings through two appearances this spring.

Lauer and the Brewers are hoping he will bounce back from a rough 2020 season in which he allowed 16 earned runs over 11 innings, but he has not shown any signs of a turnaround early on. He will have a few more opportunities to right the ship, but the Brewers can still option him, so he is going to have to show some results to avoid opening the regular season in the minors.

September 26, 2020 09:52 PM
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was optioned to the Brewers' alternate training site Saturday.

Lauer served as bullpen depth for the past few days while Freddy Peralta was on the paternity list, but he'll be removed from the active roster once again after Peralta was reinstated in a corresponding move. Lauer allowed three runs on two hits and three walks while striking out two over 1.2 innings Friday.

September 25, 2020 01:12 AM
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Recalled by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was recalled by the Brewers on Thursday.

Lauer spent a week at the Brewers' alternate training site, but he'll return to the major-league roster and provide a multi-inning option for manager Craig Counsell as the team prepares to play five games in four days to end the regular season. The southpaw has made three appearances (two starts) this year, allowing 13 runs over 9.1 innings.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Removed from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers optioned Lauer to their alternate training site Thursday.

After serving as the 29th man in Wednesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals, Lauer was bounced off the roster with Milwaukee reducing its contingent to 28 men ahead of their series with the Royals that begins Friday. The southpaw went unused out of the bullpen in both halves of the twin bill.

September 16, 2020 03:28 PM
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Added as extra man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer was recalled as the 29th man for Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Lauer was optioned in mid-August after struggling significantly in his first two starts for the Brewers, allowing 13 runs on 14 hits in just 6.2 innings while striking out four and walking five. He'll likely be available as a long reliever Wednesday.

August 31, 2020 02:12 PM
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Won't start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lauer won't start Monday against the Pirates, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

There was speculation that Lauer could return to the active roster to start Monday's contest, but the Brent Suter will start instead as the Brewers plan to lean on their bullpen. It's unclear when Lauer could rejoin the 28-man roster.
