The Milwaukee Brewers placed left-hander Eric Lauer on the injured list Monday with a right shoulder impingement and recalled right-hander Tyson Miler from Triple-A Nashville.
Lauer, 27, was roughed up Saturday when he gave up three home runs and six runs total over three-plus innings in a loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, dropping to 4-5 in nine appearances (eight starts) with a 5.48 ERA.
His IL move is retroactive to Sunday and leaves Milwaukee with three key starters in the IL to go along with left-hander Wade Miley (shoulder) and right-hander Brandon Woodruff (shoulder).
In six seasons with the San Diego Padres and Brewers, Lauer is 36-36 with a 4.21 ERA over 119 appearances (111 starts).
Miller, 27, had a 1.93 ERA in three relief appearances with Milwaukee earlier this season and had a 1.45 ERA in nine appearances at Nashville.
In three major league seasons with the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers and Brewers, Miller is 1-2 with a 7.52 ERA in nine appearances (three starts).
In addition, right-hander Gus Varland, who was a Rule 5 draft pick from the Los Angeles Dodgers, cleared waivers and was returned to L.A. Varland, 26, had an 11.42 ERA in eight relief appearances.
