Astros acquired RHP Mike Fiers and OF Carlos Gomez from the Brewers for OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76.

The Astros now boast a very strong top four hurlers in their rotation, as Fiers likely slots in behind Dallas Keuchel, Scott Kazmir and Lance McCullers. The 30-year-old right-hander boasts a 3.89 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 121/43 K/BB ratio through 118 frames on the year and should benefit from a move away from the launching pad that is Miller Park.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Astros have acquired Mike Fiers along with Carlos Gomez from the Brewers in exchange for prospects.

Fiers will certainly help to bolster the Astros rotation, that now boasts Dallas Keuchel, Scott Kazmir and Lance McCullers at the top. The 30-year-old owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 121/43 K/BB ratio over 118 innings on the season.
Jul 30 - 7:39 PM

Mike Fiers logged a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Giants, allowing only two runs on four hits over six-plus frames.

The right-hander racked up five strikeouts on the afternoon while walking one. The two teams had been locked in a scoreless tie heading into the seventh inning, where Fiers allowed the first two men to reach before turning the game over to the bullpen, who subsequently allowed the two runners to score. A popular name in trade rumblings, Fiers will take on the Padres at home on Monday if he remains a Brewer through the deadline.
Jul 29 - 9:32 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays are "still talking" a Mike Fiers trade with the Brewers.

Fiers has pitched really well of late and is under team control through 2018, so the Brewers figure to ask for quite a bit in return for him. Rosenthal notes that he's not the only arm the Blue Jays are looking at, though, as they're also interested in Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto and would be after David Price if he becomes available.
Jul 26 - 10:47 AM

Mike Fiers struck out 10 but was ripped for five runs (four earned) in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

He gave up eight hits and walked two. Fiers' recent hot streak -- he had gone 2-0 with a 2.18 ERA across his previous five starts -- may have caused the Brewers to test the waters on his trade value, as it's been reported the Blue Jays have engaged them about the right-hander. Fiers next gets the Giants, three days before Deadline Day.
Jul 24 - 1:06 AM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Blue Jays are "showing strong interest" in Brewers starter Mike Fiers.

Fiers is making just $512,500 this year and he won't become eligible for salary arbitration until 2017, so the Brewers aren't going to be all that motivated to move him. But maybe the Jays can put together a package to Milwaukee's liking. Fiers has regressed considerably from his outstanding showing in 2014, but he's still a good mid-rotation starter and there are many contenders looking for those types.
Jul 20 - 3:29 PM

Mike Fiers racked up seven strikeouts in seven innings of one-run ball in Friday's victory over the Pirates.

Fiers allowed just three hits and a walk in the impressive outing. The only damage against him came on a solo home run off the bat of Jung Ho Kang in the seventh inning. While he has been inconsistent on the season, Fiers has pitched much better in his last five outings, lowering his ERA from 4.50 to 3.79 in the process. He'll look to build upon his recent success on Thursday when he takes on the Diamondbacks in Arizona.
Jul 17 - 11:07 PM

Mike Fiers gave up four earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Milwaukee wound up winning on a big eighth-inning comeback. Fiers walked four and gave up four hits, falling back to mediocrity after a run of really good starts. The 30-year-old right-hander is 4-7 with a 3.96 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 99/39 K/BB ratio in 100 innings this season. He faces the Pirates at home next week.
Jul 8 - 5:17 PM

Mike Fiers pitched a superb game against the Reds on Friday, hurling seven innings of shutout ball in the 12-1 win.

Fiers struck out only two, but he counteracted his lack of strikeouts by limiting the Reds to just three hits while walking only one. The strong start comes on the heels of a seven-inning, one-run performance against the Twins. Pitching for a bad Brewers team, Fiers has quietly posted a respectable 3.87 ERA, though the 1.42 WHIP is on the high side. A home start against the Braves is up next.
Jul 3 - 11:22 PM

Mike Fiers threw seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Twins on Sunday.

Fiers scattered four hits and three walks on the afternoon, only allowing a run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. Fiers struck out four in the game. He remains 3-7 after not factoring in the decision but Fiers lowered his ERA to 4.14 in the start. The right-hander will try to duplicate his success in a divisional tilt Friday at the Reds.
Jun 28 - 5:14 PM

Mike Fiers struck out seven while allowing two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Tuesday.

Fiers was stingy, giving up just four hits and walking two in his six innings. The start was a nice rebound from his last outing in which he allowed six runs over five innings. Despite the good start, Fiers remained 3-7 while lowering his ERA and WHIP to 4.39 and 1.51, respectively. Fiers will look to continue trending in the right direction Sunday when the Brewers face the Twins.
Jun 23 - 11:10 PM

Mike Fiers was tagged for six runs in five innings by the Royals on Wednesday.

This breaks up a string of seven straight starts with no more than three runs allowed for Fiers. Usually it's the home run ball that does him in when he struggles, but he didn't give up any bombs tonight. Instead, he allowed eight hits, seven of them singles.
Jun 17 - 11:38 PM

Mike Fiers yielded three runs over seven innings in an 8-4 win over the Nationals on Friday.

After failing to make it out of the fifth inning in his last start, Fiers had his longest start of the season Friday and also got his first win at home. He gave up five hits (including two home runs) while walking three and striking out eight. Fiers owns a 4.04 ERA and 80/25 K/BB ratio in 69 innings over 13 starts this season. He'll square off against the Royals next week on the road.
Jun 13 - 12:51 AM

Mike Fiers couldn't give the Brewers length in Sunday's loss to the Twins, walking three and yielding two runs over just 4 1/3 innings.

While Fiers allowed just two runs, both scoring in the second inning, he was far from dominant. The Twins reached base 10 times (seven hits, three walks) against him and he struck out just three. Fiers has been relatively effective at limiting runs this season, as he holds a 4.06 ERA. He's also striking out batters at a fantastic clip with a 72/22 K/BB ratio over 62 innings, though his 1.55 WHIP doesn't instill much confidence that he'll be able to keep the earned run number at its current level as the season progresses. A home start against the Nationals is up next on the docket.
