Mike Fiers gave up four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Cubs Sunday.
It was a disappointing end to a fantastic season for Fiers, as he gave up six hits and a walk in the loss. Fiers finished the year on a three-game losing streak, but the right-hander still ended with a 6-5 record, 2.13 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 76/17 K/BB ratio over 71 2/3 innings. Fiers should have a good shot at making the Brewers' rotation out of spring next season. Sep 28 - 6:49 PM

Mike Fiers allowed two runs, both on home runs, over five innings in a loss to the Reds Tuesday.

Fiers made two early mistakes, and Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco went back-to-back in the first inning for the only runs against him on the night. Fiers gave up four hits and a walk, striking out just three in the start. The loss was Fiers' second straight, dropping him to 6-4, but he still owns a strong 1.92 ERA on the year. Fiers will likely draw the start for the Brewers' season finale against the Cubs Sunday, giving him one more shot to finish strong.
Sep 23 - 9:52 PM

Mike Fiers allowed two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Fiers was working on a no-hitter until the bottom of the sixth inning, when Adam Wainwright smacked a two-out single up the middle. The Cardinals didn't score that inning but rallied for two runs in the bottom of the seventh, which was all the support that Wainwright needed. Fiers will carry a 1.78 ERA and 0.84 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Reds.
Sep 17 - 10:57 PM

Mike Fiers threw five shutout innings and got the win, but also battled shaky control on Thursday against the Marlins.

Despite the successful line score, Thursday is a night Fiers will want to forget. In the fifth inning, Fiers hit Giancarlo Stanton in the face with a fastball, which likely ended the NL MVP candidate's season. Fiers was visibly upset and the spotty control worsened, as he hit Reed Johnson, who was pinch-hitting for Stanton. (Neither was awarded first base as it was ruled that they had swung.) Fiers walked three, gave up three hits, uncorked a wild pitch, and struck out eight on the evening. He'll bring a 1.84 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and a 59/13 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start in St. Louis against the Cardinals.
Sep 12 - 12:19 AM

Mike Fiers continued his dominance in Friday’s victory over the Cardinals, surrendering just two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Fiers punched out five on the evening while issuing one free pass. He has been outstanding for the Brewers this season, compiling a 2.03 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 51/10 K/BB ratio over 48 2/3 innings. Fantasy owners who were savvy enough to scoop him up early on should continue to reap the rewards over the season’s final month. Next on tap for him is a matchup against the Marlins on Wednesday.
Sep 5 - 11:38 PM

Mike Fiers held the Pirates to two runs on just two hits over seven innings, and the Brewers held on to win 4-3 on Sunday.

One of those two hits allowed was a two-run homer by Starling Marte, but Fiers was otherwise dominant yet again. The right-hander struck out seven while walking just one. In his four starts, Fiers is now 4-0 with a 1.29 ERA. He's been tremendous all year, including at Triple-A, so it's not entirely surprising that his success has continued. Mixed league owners need to take notice. Fiers will next square off with the Giants in San Francisco on Saturday.
Aug 24 - 5:16 PM

Mike Fiers limited the Blue Jays to two hits and one run over seven innings of work in the Brewers' 6-1 victory on Tuesday.

The Jays' two hits came in consecutive at-bats in the second inning and led to the team's only run. Otherwise, Fiers was unstoppable, striking out six while issuing just one walk. He retired the last 17 hitters he faced on the way to his third straight win. The right-hander has been terrific all season long in the minors and while it's not likely that he stays at this pace, he's nearly unhittable at the moment. He's got another cake matchup Monday when the Brewers visit the Padres.
Aug 19 - 11:32 PM

Mike Fiers fanned 14 Cubs over six scoreless innings Thursday in the Brewers' 6-2 victory.

Fiers joined Max Scherzer in striking out 14 today, but his feat might have been even more impressive, being that he was given the chance to get just 18 outs total. In fact, Fiers is just the eighth pitcher ever to strike out 14 in an outing of six innings or less. The last to do it was Scherzer against the A's in 2010. Fiers also just the fourth Brewer ever to fan 14 in an outing, joining Moose Haas (14 in 1978), Ben Sheets (18 in 2004) and Yovani Gallardo (14 in 2012). Fiers is expected to get at least one more start with Kyle Lohse's next turn in doubt. If he pitches nearly as well again, the Brewers could have him take Jimmy Nelson's place in the rotation.
Aug 14 - 6:12 PM

Mike Fiers hurled eight innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Brewers' 4-1 defeat of the Dodgers.

It was the first win at the major league level for Fiers since 2012. He was shockingly good, holding the Los Angeles offense to three hits and a walk while fanning five. The only blemish was an Adrian Gonzalez solo home run in the fourth inning. Fiers was having a really promising year at Triple-A and may worth a look in mixed fantasy leagues if he gets more turns in the Brewers' rotation. Milwaukee is now three games up in the National League Central.
Aug 9 - 10:00 PM

Brewers recalled RHP Mike Fiers from Triple-A Nashville.

Fiers will take the place of the injured Matt Garza in the Brewers rotation, starting on Saturday against the Dodgers. He has been terrific at Triple-A this season, posting a 2.55 ERA and 129/17 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. He's worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Aug 8 - 11:51 PM

The Brewers will call up Mike Fiers to start Saturday against the Dodgers.

Marco Estrada pitched three innings in relief on Wednesday, so Fiers will take Matt Garza's place in the starting rotation. The 29-year-old owns a 2.55 ERA and 129/17 K/BB ratio in 102 1/3 innings over 17 starts in Triple-A this season, but he's not a fantasy option outside of NL-only formats.
Aug 7 - 5:39 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke mentioned Mike Fiers as a possibility to take Matt Garza's (oblique) spot in the rotation.

Marco Estrada is the other candidate, but Roenicke mentioned Estrada being needed as a reliever over the next few days. Fiers has posted a 2.55 ERA in Triple-A Nashville's rotation this season, so the Brew Crew might opt to give him a shot rather than the guy they bumped from the rotation last month. Garza's spot comes up on Saturday against the Dodgers.
Aug 5 - 8:57 PM

Brewers optioned RHP Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville.

Fiers took the loss in Tuesday's 16-inning affair with the Nationals, serving up a two-run homer in his fourth inning of work. Alfredo Figaro takes Fiers' spot in the Brewers' bullpen.
Jun 25 - 12:16 PM

Brewers recalled RHP Mike Fiers from Triple-A Nashville.

Fiers has been fantastic for the minor league affiliate this season, owning a 1.59 ERA and 0.79 WHIP while striking out 12.7 batters per nine innings. He endured a miserable 2013 season, but he performed better in a stint with the Brewers in 2012. He'll be a bullpen arm for the time being.
Jun 7 - 7:48 PM

Brewers right-handed pitcher Mike Fiers dominated on Saturday for Triple-A Nashville, scattering five hits and one walk over 6 2/3 shutout innings while striking out 13.

Fiers is little more than organizational depth, but if you believe that his breakout 2012 season was more reality than smoke and mirrors, he may be worth monitoring if the one of the Brewers starting pitchers gets hurt. He sports a 1.59 ERA and a 0.794 WHIP, while striking out 12.7 batters per nine innings pitched.
