Eric Lauer pitching for Brewers versus Braves in NLDS Game 4

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Eric Lauer will start Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday versus right-hander Charlie Morton and the Atlanta Braves.

What It Means:

The Brewers are reluctant to start Corbin Burnes on short rest, so Lauer is receiving the call on Tuesday. This is an elimination game, so the 26-year-old left-hander could see a quick hook if he gets off to a slow start. Lauer's last outing was against the Los Angeles Dodgers on October 1. He ended the regular season with a 3.19 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 117 strikeouts over 118 2/3 innings.

numberFire's models project Lauer for 20.2 FanDuel points and he has an $8,800 salary on Tuesday. The southpaw has a higher strikeout rate versus righties, but he also allows a 44.6% fly-ball rate and 39.1% hard-hit rate. Meanwhile, Lauer owns a middling 17.9% strikeout rate and 12.8% walk rate versus left-handers.
