Eric Lauer lit up for seven runs in Wednesday's loss

Eric Lauer (0-2) allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks across three 2/3 innings in Wednesday's 12-2 loss to the Brewers. He earned his second loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Lauer has now allowed 13 runs his last two starts. He is danger of losing his rotation spot to Corbin Burnes if the struggles continue. Lauer is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Twins. Until Lauer turns it around, he can be dropped in most league formats.

Eric Lauer yields six runs in Friday's loss

Eric Lauer (0-1) allowed six runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two in Friday's 8-3 loss to the Reds. He picked up his first loss of the year.

Fantasy Impact

Lauer surrendered six runs in the second inning and lasted one more frame before exiting. The Reds offense (zero runs in last 22 innings) was struggling heading into this contest, but found their groove against Lauer in Friday's win. He owns a 9.53 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 8:4 K:BB across five 2/3 innings. Lauer is currently not scheduled to pitch next week and will most likely shift to the bullpen.

Eric Lauer unlikely for Opening Day

LHP Eric Lauer is unlikely to be ready by Opening Day, per Brewers' manager Craig Counsell.

Fantasy Impact

Lauer will "miss by a little bit" on being ready for opening day, said Counsell. He was late to arrive at summer camp after coming in close contact with someone who had COVID-19. Lauer will need to build up arm strength and is expected to join the team's rotation shortly. The 25-year-old posted a (8-10) record, 4.45 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 138:46 K:BB across 149 2/3 innings for the Padres in 2019.
