Lauer has pitched much better in his big league opportunities this year than he did in 2020, earning two starts in four outings with a 2.81 ERA in 16.0 innings pitched.



He’s struck out 16 batters with only two walks this season, and he appears to have impressed Milwaukee with his performance.

The idea behind sending Lauer back down to the minors, according to manager Craig Counsell, was to get him back into a starting job and keep him on a regular schedule with the Brewers’ upcoming off-days.

The Brewers are planning to use a six-man rotation for the next few games, and Lauer is one of the leading possibilities for those starts. The manager stated, “I think Eric is in a pretty good place.”

Hoby Milner, 30, has played at the highest level of the game in each of the last four seasons.

He has a 4.53 ERA in 74 appearances and 55.2 innings pitched, but after posting a 2.01 ERA in 37 games for the Phillies as a rookie in 2017.

He has given up 21 earned runs in 24.1 innings (7.77 ERA) while bouncing back and forth between the minor leagues from 2018 to 20 with Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, and Anaheim.

This move offers the Brewers a fresh arm for the bullpen tonight and allows Counsell another left-handed pitcher to play matchups with after Lauer tossed 55 pitches in 3.0 innings of relief last night.

Milner still has two minor league options, according to Fangraphs, so he might be a bullpen shuttle candidate for the rest of the season if he can keep his 40-man roster position.
