$Signed a contract with the Padres in June of 2018 that includes a $2 million signing bonus.
Solid effort Saturday
PSan Diego Padres
September 15, 2018
Lauer allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out four across five innings Saturday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.
ANALYSIS
Lauer gave up a solo home run to Joey Gallo in the second inning, the only run he allowed while on the mound. He was charged the second run after the Padres' bullpen was unable to strand a baserunner he put on prior to being pulled. Regardless, Lauer has pitched effectively across his last three outings, giving up only two earned runs in 14 innings to go along with 14 strikeouts. The downside to Lauer is his inability to pitch deep into games, as he has surpassed five innings only twice in his last 10 appearances.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Padres signed the Kent State lefty to a slightly under slot $2 million contract after selecting him with the No. 25 overall pick. He was dominant after entering pro ball, albeit in just 31 innings, primarily in the Northwest League. However, Lauer does not have a plus pitch, and his excellent numbers may oversell his long-term upside. He features a low-90s fastball, an above-average slider, and a changeup and curveball that could top out as average offerings. Additionally, he does not have the type of elite command needed to allow that arsenal to play up. Any organization would be happy to have a high-probability 6-foot-3 southpaw who should be able to pitch near the back of a big league rotation, but for fantasy dynasty leagues, that profile is a lot less exciting, especially when it comes with a lead time of two or three years.
