Brewers' Eric Lauer: Reaches deal with Milwaukee
Lauer agreed to a one-year, $5.075 million contract with the Brewers on Friday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Lauer delivered another solid season for the Brewers in 2022 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 157:59 K:BB across a career-high 158.2 innings. The left-hander should open 2023 as Milwaukee's No. 4 starter behind Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff and Freddy Peralta.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Six no-hit innings to end season
Lauer (11-7) earned the win Tuesday, allowing no hits and four walks over six scoreless innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out seven.
In his last start of the season, Lauer turned one of his best, as he did not allow a hit for the first time in 2022. Despite the no-hit possibility, the southpaw was pulled after six innings, as he walked four batters and his pitch count ran up to 97.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Fans nine in strong start
Lauer did not factor into the decision against the Marlins on Thursday, striking out nine over five scoreless innings with one hit and zero walks allowed.
After needing 66 pitches to get through 2.2 innings in his return from the IL in his last start, Lauer bounced back in a big way by holding Miami to one hit. He needed just 71 pitches to complete five innings and record nine strikeouts, his highest total since July 4. The bullpen went on to blow the game and cost Lauer the win, but the strong start was an encouraging sign for the southpaw. He will take a 3.83 ERA into his next start.... See More ... See Less

Lauer threw 36 of 66 pitches for strikes in his return from the injured list Friday. The Brewers got the win but he failed to make it through the third inning for the second straight outing. Lauer's season ERA now sits at 3.96 with a 141:55 K:BB through 27 starts. He should be able to go further in his next start, which is expected to come at home against Miami next week.... See More ...

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Activated prior to start
Lauer (elbow) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list prior to Friday's start against the Reds.
Although Lauer is back in action after spending the minimum of 15 days on the injured list, he's expected to be on a pitch count during Friday's start. The southpaw struggled during his final start prior to landing on the IL, allowing seven runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four in 2.2 innings at Coors Field on Sept. 7.... See More ...

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Starting Friday vs. Reds
Lauer (elbow) will start Friday against the Reds, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Friday is the first day Lauer is eligible to return, so it sounds like he is doing quite well physically. He is throwing a second bullpen session Tuesday in preparation for his first start since Sept. 7. While he will only miss a little more than two weeks, Lauer may not be ready to go deep enough to qualify for the win.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Could return Friday
Lauer (elbow) is a candidate to make a short start Friday against the Reds, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The Brewers have yet to confirm their pitching plans for later in the week, but McCalvy notes that Lauer could be activated when first eligible Friday. This would give the southpaw a chance to ease back into action while having Jason Alexander available to serve as the primary pitcher if needed. Lauer has been on the 15-day injured list since Sept. 10 due to left elbow inflammation.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Throws bullpen Saturday
Lauer (elbow) threw approximately 30 pitches during a bullpen session Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Lauer threw off flat ground Wednesday and was cleared for mound work a few days later. The southpaw is eligible to return from the injured list as early as Sept. 23, and manager Craig Counsell said Saturday that he expects Lauer to be back in action prior to the end of the regular season....

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Back to throwing
Lauer (elbow) threw on flat ground Wednesday, and manager Craig Counsell said the session was "very positive," Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The left-hander landed on the shelf with elbow inflammation over the weekend, and it's an encouraging sign he's throwing only a few days later. Lauer is eligible to be activated from the 15-day IL on Sept. 23, and it's possible he's available at that point or shortly thereafter based on his early recovery progress.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Lands on injured list
Lauer was placed on the 15-day injured list with left elbow inflammation Saturday.
The injury forced Lauer to exit his previous start Wednesday against the Rockies after giving up seven runs and recording just eight outs. He received "very encouraging" MRI results the next day according to manager Craig Counsell, but he'll nonetheless miss at least his next two turns in the rotation. Whether or not he has a chance to return when first eligible Sep. 23 remains to be seen. Trevor Kelley was recalled to take his place on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Encouraging MRI results
Lauer (elbow) had "very encouraging" MRI results Thursday, according to manager Craig Counsell, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
He'll have more tests Friday after consulting with a doctor. It sounds like he could rejoin the Brewers' rotation in relatively short order, as he was never placed on the injured list. The Brewers' rotation is quite shorthanded, with Freddy Peralta (shoulder) back on the IL and Aaron Ashby (shoulder) also sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Managing elbow strain
Lauer (10-7), who took the loss Wednesday against the Rockies, was diagnosed with a left elbow strain and will miss at least one start, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The left-hander surrendered seven runs over 2.2 frames, and it was the first outing this season that he didn't last at least four innings. Lauer's next turn through the rotation lined up for Tuesday in St. Louis, but it appears he'll be skipped for at least one turn. More information on the 27-year-old's injury should be available in the coming days as he continues to be evaluated.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Exits with left elbow tightness
Lauer was removed from Wednesday's start against the Rockies due to left elbow tightness, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Lauer struggled early in Wednesday's outing, giving up seven runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four in 2.2 innings prior to begin replaced in the bottom of the third inning. It's possible that the southpaw's injury contributed to his struggles, and he'll likely undergo further testing to determine the extent of the issue. Whether he's cleared to make his next turn through the rotation remains to be seen.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Charged with sixth loss
Lauer (10-6) allowed two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five in 6.2 innings to take the loss Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Lauer bounced back with a quality start Friday after he gave up four runs in five innings during his last outing, but he was unable to pick up the win since the Brewers' offense scored just one run against Arizona. The southpaw has now posted four quality starts over his last six appearances, but he's been charged with losses during three of those quality starts. He tentatively lines up to make his next start against the Rockies at hitter-friendly Coors Field on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Tallies win in poor showing
Lauer (10-5) gave up four earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out one batter over five innings to earn the win in a 9-7 victory over the Cubs on Sunday.
Lauer did enough to tally his 10th win of the season, but it was not his finest effort. He needed 101 pitches to get through five innings and issued four free passes, which belabored his pitch count and got him into some trouble early on. Lauer's ERA rose to 3.58 after the game. He has now issued 51 walks in 135.2 innings this season, which is substantially weaker than the major-league average. The 27-year-old left-hander will look to show better control in his next expected time out at Arizona.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Lauer: Tosses five scoreless frames
Lauer (9-5) earned the win over the Dodgers on Monday, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out two batters over five innings.
The Dodgers made Lauer work in the contest -- they fouled off 24 of his pitches, and the left-hander had to depart after five innings as a result of throwing 98 pitches. However, Lauer came out on top, as he didn't allow any extra-base hits and kept Los Angeles off the scoreboard for five frames. Though his streak of three straight quality starts came to an end, the veteran hurler ended a two-game losing streak and tossed his first scoreless outing since May 20. Lauer has already established a career high with nine wins on the campaign, and he has a very good chance of surpassing the career-high mark of 149.2 innings he set in 2019 with San Diego....
