Eric Lauer (illness) joining Brewers

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Eric Lauer (illness) is joining summer camp on Friday, per Brewers manager Craig Counsell.

What It Means:

Lauer has been dealing with a non-COVID-19-related illness. He was battling a left shoulder impingement back in March that was expected to sideline Lauer for the original Opening Day, but that no longer appears to be a problem. The 25-year-old left-hander is believed to be competing with Corbin Burnes and Freddy Peralta for the Brewers' fifth rotation spot.

Lauer owns a 4.40 ERA and 20.6 strikeout percentage through 261 2/3 innings (53 games, 52 starts) over his first two seasons in the majors. numberFire's models expect Lauer to record a 4.62 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with 47 strikeouts and 18 walks over 50 2/3 innings this season.
