2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lauer saw an increased workload in 2019, logging 149.2 innings over 30 appearances (29 starts). He had a 4.45 ERA on the season and was much better at home (3.08) than on the road (5.99). The lefty will not have the luxury of pitching half his games at Petco Park in 2020 and will instead pitch in a much more hitter-friendly environment in Milwaukee following a trade to the Brewers. Regardless of home venue, Lauer's ceiling was always that of a back-end starter. He has a middling 91.9 mph average fastball, and while his slider has received good grades in the past, it has not translated to high swing-and-miss rates. The 24-year-old improved his walk rate last season, but it still sat at a mediocre 7.8% after a rough 9.1 BB% the year before. Lauer currently projects for a spot in the Opening Day rotation, but this skill set is fringe at best for a mixed league. Read Past Outlooks
