Mike Fiers allowed eight runs -- four earned -- over four innings in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.
As if serving up a grand slam to Jay Bruce in the third inning wasn't bad enough, Fiers yielded a second salami to Todd Frazier an inning later. It was just the fourth time teams have combined for three grand slams in a game -- the Brewers' Elian Herrera also hit one -- and the loss dropped Fiers to 0-3 to start the year. He'll take a 6.75 ERA and 1.70 WHIP into Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals. Apr 22 - 12:02 AM

Mike Fiers allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Fiers was in control until the bottom of the sixth inning, when Matt Holliday hit an RBI single and Mark Reynolds crushed an RBI double. St. Louis then went on to score two more runs on the Milwaukee bullpen. Fiers isn't showing very good velocity in the early going this season -- his fastball was 86-88 mph Thursday -- and he'll carry a rough 5.91 ERA into his next start at home against the Reds.
Apr 16 - 4:49 PM

Mike Fiers was tagged for five runs over five innings Friday in a loss to the Pirates.

Fiers didn't allow more than three earned runs in any of his 10 starts last season, but he gave up five runs his first time out in 2015. Go figure. On the bright side, he struck out eight batters and walked just one. Still, this was a bit concerning after a mediocre spring where he dealt with some shoulder weakness. He'll look to make some progress in a road start against the Cardinals next week.
Apr 10 - 11:53 PM

Mike Fiers limited the Mariners to one run over 3 2/3 innings in Thursday's Cactus League start.

Fiers had missed his previously-scheduled start due to weakness in his throwing shoulder, but looked fine facing the Mariners. He held them to three hits and a walk, though he didn't register a strikeout. The shoulder problem is a little concerning heading into the season and is worth keeping an eye on. Fiers is hoping to pick up where he left off last season, with a 2.13 ERA and a 76/17 K/BB ratio over 71 2/3 innings.
Mar 26 - 7:23 PM

Mike Fiers (shoulder) is expected to pitch in a Cactus League game on Thursday.

Fiers had to be scratched from his last turn in the Brewers' spring rotation due to some shoulder weakness, but he felt fine after pitching three innings in a minor league game on Sunday. He's likely to start the Brewers' fourth game of the regular season on April 10 against the Pirates. Fiers posted a remarkable 2.13 ERA and 76/17 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings last year.
Mar 23 - 2:36 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that he doesn't expect Mike Fiers (shoulder) to need a stint on the disabled list.

The skipper said it's possible Fiers could be moved back or skipped if need be, but he doesn't think the righty will be sidelined long. Fiers is dealing with some weakness in his pitching shoulder but will appear either in a Cactus League game or minor league game this weekend.
Mar 20 - 2:03 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke acknowledged that Mike Fiers is experiencing "shoulder weakness."

Fiers had to be scratched from his scheduled Cactus League start on Thursday and "shoulder weakness" sounds ominous for a pitcher, but Roenicke doesn't think it's a big deal. Fiers is aiming to return to Cactus League action on Saturday. He will throw a side session Thursday to test his right shoulder.
Mar 19 - 1:24 PM

Mike Fiers was scratched from his scheduled Cactus League start on Thursday.

Tyler Thornburg pitched instead. Fiers said he didn't feel right in his last bullpen session, though he thinks it's routine spring training fatigue. "Just kind of tired," Fiers said. "I couldn't get a good feel in my bullpen." The right-hander is aiming to pitch Saturday, but this is a situation to watch. Fiers had a a 2.13 ERA and 76/17 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings last season.
Mar 19 - 12:40 PM

Mike Fiers was knocked around by the Mariners in Cactus League action on Friday, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits over two-plus innings.

Fiers struggled badly with his command, issuing three walks while failing to record a strikeout. He's been a very popular commodity in fantasy drafts this spring after registering a 2.13 ERA and 76/17 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings in 2014.
Mar 13 - 7:52 PM

Mike Fiers gave up an unearned run in 2 2/3 innings versus the Dodgers on Sunday.

Fiers breezed through the Dodgers' lineup but was pulled with two outs in the thrid inning after walking Enrique Hernandez. The right-hander allowed just the one walk plus one hit while striking out three. Fiers impressed across 10 starts and four relief appearances last season, posting a 2.13 ERA and a 76/17 K/BB ratio. He has a rotation spot written in pen already.
Mar 8 - 7:05 PM

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.

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.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 09:52:00 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.

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.
Fri, Sep 12, 2014 12:19:00 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.
