MLB suspended RHP Mike Fiers five games for throwing over the head of the Angels' Luis Valbuena in Wednesday's game.
He won't appeal. Fiers was all upset because Valbuena flipped his bat over a home run earlier in the contest. It's really rare to see MLB suspend a pitcher for throwing at a batter without warnings having been issued, but Fiers was so blatant with the pitch that the league apparently had to step in. The mistake was that the umpiring crew didn't simply eject him immediately. Sep 14 - 5:48 PM

Date:

Mike Fiers was pounded for eight runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Angels in Wednesday's loss.

Fiers was moved to the pen earlier this month, but he was needed to start tonight with Lance McCullers back on the shelf. Fiers should head back to the pen now, even if the Astros happen to need a replacement for McCullers again next week.
Sep 14 - 2:30 AM

Mike Fiers has been moved to the Astros' bullpen.

Fiers had back-to-back clunkers to seal his fate, although odds are he was probably headed to the 'pen regardless following the team's addition of Justin Verlander. The righty had an excellent stretch in June and July but has ultimately been very inconsistent this season.
Sep 4 - 4:49 PM

Mike Fiers allowed six earned runs over just 4 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Mets.

It was an ugly outing, but Fiers actually out-dueled Mets starter Chris Flexen, who surrendered seven earned runs in his four frames. Fiers walked three batters and gave up seven hits while tallying just one strikeout. Houston still pulled out an 8-6 victory.
Sep 3 - 6:12 PM

Mike Fiers was lit up for eight runs in four innings by the Rangers on Tuesday.

It's the third time in six starts this month that Fiers has allowed at least six runs; he had never done so in 20 starts through the end of July. His rotation spot should be in serious jeopardy with Lance McCullers potentially returning next week.
Aug 29 - 11:02 PM

Mike Fiers limited the Nationals to one run in seven innings to win Wednesday.

It's Fiers' first quality start and victory in a month; he had given up 21 earned runs over 25 2/3 innings in his previous five starts. He's back to having a little job security now, though that still could change when Lance McCullers returns next month or if the Astros can pull of a trade before then.
Aug 23 - 11:24 PM

Mike Fiers lost after allowing three runs -- two earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Fiers is 0-4 with a 7.36 ERA in his last five starts. The Astros were going to bump Brad Peacock from the rotation when Collin McHugh returned last month, but since they lost Lance McCullers, they never had to make the decision. Now it's clear that if someone is going to be bumped, whether it's for a trade acquisition or perhaps McCullers' return next month, it should be Fiers.
Aug 17 - 5:18 PM

Mike Fiers allowed six runs over four innings of work in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

Fiers was victimized by the long ball, serving up a three-run homer to Brett Nicholas and a solo dong to Mike Napoli, and he also walked four on the night. The 32-year-old gave the Astros some real quality innings in the first half but has struggled of late, losing three straight decisions and watching his ERA balloon from 3.59 to 4.36 over a four-game stretch. Assuming the club continues to roll with the right-hander -- and with their lead in the AL West, there isn't a huge pressure to replace Fiers -- he'll take on the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Aug 13 - 1:33 AM

Mike Fiers surrendered five runs (four earned) on four hits over six-plus innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

Fiers allowed a pair of two-run home runs in the win, coughing up one to Jose Bautista in the third inning and a second to Nori Aoki in the seventh. That Aoki homer flipped the score from a 3-2 Astros advantage to a 4-3 edge for the Jays. Before all was said and done, Fiers struck out six and walked three. He will carry a 4.06 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into a road showdown with the Rangers next time he takes to the mound.
Aug 6 - 5:51 PM

Mike Fiers lost after giving up six runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Rays.

Fiers survived giving up five runs in the first three innings and faced just one batter over the minimum through the next three frames. He was pulled after a one-out walk to Corey Dickerson in the seventh, and Dickerson came around to score off Reymin Guduan. That marked the first time all season that Fiers had been charged with six runs. He fell to 7-6 with a 3.97 ERA.
Aug 2 - 12:14 AM

Mike Fiers took a loss to the Phillies after giving up three runs in four innings on Wednesday.

It took him 102 pitches to get through four innings. He struck out seven batters but gave up five hits, three walks and drilled two batters with pitches. The key blow was a two-run homer by catcher Cameron Rupp in the fourth inning. Fiers falls to 7-5 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.28 WHIP.
Jul 26 - 11:38 PM

Mike Fiers was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Orioles, racking up nine strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball.

Fiers scattered six hits and a walk on the impressive evening. The only blemish on his night came on an RBI single by Jonathan Schoop in the third inning. He has been pitching out of his mind for awhile now, compiling a 2.36 ERA over his last 10 starts. He'll carry a 3.59 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 107/38 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
Jul 21 - 10:15 PM

Mike Fiers struck out a season-high 11 batters while allowing two runs on four hits over seven innings in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Twins.

Fiers had some issues keeping the ball in the park -- he surrendered solo home runs to Kennys Vargas and Ehire Adrianza -- but this was a sharp outing nonetheless. This was his first double-digit strikeout game in 18 starts this season. He will bring a 3.75 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into a road showdown with the Orioles next time out as he tries to maintain the momentum of Sunday's strong showing.
Jul 16 - 5:00 PM

Mike Fiers let up five hits and three runs over six innings Saturday in the Astros’ 7-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

He struck out six and walked four while throwing 59 of his 105 pitches for strikes. Fiers held Toronto scoreless until the fifth when Josh Donaldson broke through with a three-run homer. The right-hander’s command wasn’t there, especially early on when he allowed four walks in his first three innings. The 32-year-old will finish the first half with a respectable 3.84 ERA over 17 starts.
Jul 8 - 5:12 PM

Mike Fiers walked four without allowing a run over four innings in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

While Fiers had issues with his control in this one, he allowed just two hits and struck out seven while going in and out of trouble. The veteran hurler will carry a 3.80 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a road start against the Blue Jays next time he takes to the mound.
