Mike Fiers held the Orioles to one run in seven innings while striking out seven as the Astros won 12-2 on Saturday.

The only run Fiers surrendered came on a Chris Davis solo blast in the fourth inning. He yielded just five hits and issued one free pass in the ballgame. He needed a good outing like this one after getting knocked around in his last two starts. Fiers' record improves to 9-6 with a 4.48 ERA. He has 103 strikeouts and 31 walks in 132 2/3 innings.
Aug 20 - 11:02 PM

Mike Fiers proved ineffective in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering five runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Fiers did strike out seven, but outside of those whiffs, it was a struggle. The Jays scored once in the first inning on a Troy Tulowitzki RBI single. They would score once more in soft fashion in the fourth inning before breaking out the lumber in the fifth via a two-run homer by Tulo and a solo shot by Russell Martin. With the rough outing under his belt, Fiers now holds a mediocre 4.66 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He is best to be avoided on the waiver wire. A road start against the Orioles shows next on his schedule.
Aug 14 - 4:47 PM

Mike Fiers allowed four runs, including three home runs, over five innings in a win over the Twins on Tuesday.

Fiers gave up just five hits in total, but Miguel Sano, Brian Dozier and Robbie Grossman -- who hit a two-run shot -- took him deep. Homers have long been Fiers' issue, and he's now given up 20 homers in 121 innings this year. Even so, he struck out five and earned the win, improving to 8-5 with a 4.46 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the year. Fiers will next take on the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Aug 9 - 11:55 PM

Mike Fiers allowed two runs over six innings, striking out seven, but took the loss against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Fiers was largely good, allowing just five hits without issuing a free pass, but Jays starter J.A. Happ made the two runs stick. The loss dropped Fiers to 7-5 with a 4.34 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 116 innings of work. The right-hander will look to get back in the win column Tuesday against the Twins.
Aug 4 - 11:12 PM

Mike Fiers allowed only an unearned run over 6 1/3 innings but settled for a no-decision Saturday against the Tigers.

Fiers gave up just four hits and a walk while striking out six, but his efforts went for naught when Will Harris blew his second save of the year. Still, it was a nice turn for the 31-year-old, who has had his share of ups and downs this year. Fiers will carry a 4.42 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Blue Jays.
Jul 30 - 10:35 PM

Mike Fiers was tagged for six runs in 3 2/3 innings by the A's in a loss Monday.

Fiers and manager A.J. Hinch had a spirited conversation after Fiers was removed. It makes one wonder if Fiers is long for the rotation. Scott Feldman has been throwing well and could take his spot if the Astros want to make a change.
Jul 19 - 1:40 AM

Mike Fiers lasted only 3 1/3 innings and gave up four earned runs, but took a no-decision when the Astros beat the Mariners 9-8 on Wednesday.

He allowed five hits and two walks while striking out four. He got yanked from the game after surrendering three home runs in the fourth inning. After the poor outing his ERA rises to 4.35 with a 1.35 WHIP after 16 starts. Fiers' strikeout rate has fallen to 6.19 K/9 this year from 8.98 in 2015 and 9.54 in 2014. He has been good in streaks over the years but is too inconsistent to rely upon in fantasy leagues.
Jul 7 - 12:31 AM

Mike Fiers spun six scoreless innings in a 5-0 victory over the White Sox on Friday.

Fiers gave up four hits and walked a pair while striking out four. Three of the hits were doubles, but the White Sox just couldn’t capitalize with runners in scoring position. Fiers has allowed just two earned runs over his last three starts, lowering his ERA from 4.76 to 4.12 in the process. He’ll try to keep it going in a start against the Mariners at home.
Jul 1 - 11:37 PM

Mike Fiers lasted only 4 1/3 innings against the Royals on Saturday, surrendering three runs (two earned) on nine hits and having to settle for a no-decision.

The Astros had a big lead so the win was ripe for the plucking, but Fiers couldn't pitch deeply enough into the game to qualify for it. He registered only one strikeout and walked three. He has a 4.41 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He will square off versus the White Sox on Friday.
Jun 25 - 11:25 PM

Mike Fiers delivered 5 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday in the Astros' 6-0 blanking of the Reds.

Fiers rolled his way through the Cincinnati lineup with ease, yielding only four hits and one walk while striking out five. Chris Devenski took over in the sixth and put up four more zeroes, earning his first save. Fiers now stands 5-3 with a 4.42 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 55/14 K/BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings this season. He gets the Royals on the road next.
Jun 19 - 5:04 PM

Mike Fiers limited the Rays to two earned runs over seven innings Saturday for his fourth win.

A nice bounceback outing for Fiers, who gave up three runs in the first inning of his last start Monday against the Rangers. He had a clean first inning today and the two runs he allowed came on solo homers -- Brad Miller in the third, Evan Longoria in the sixth. Fiers gave up just five hits total and one walk striking out three.
Jun 11 - 7:13 PM

Mike Fiers was lit up for four runs on eight hits and a walk over 5 1/3 frames in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

Fiers was jumped for three runs in the first inning and then allowed the Rangers to re-take the lead in the third after his offense had battled back to tie things up. It's been a bit of a roller coaster this season for the right-hander, as he can't seem to put together a string of good outings. He'll bring an even 5.00 ERA into this weekend's matchup in Tampa.
Jun 7 - 12:19 AM

Mike Fiers fanned seven in six innings of one-run ball in Wednesday's contest against the Diamondbacks, but he didn't factor into the decision.

Fiers had a pretty good month of May before getting clobbered on the 27th against the Angels, in which he gave up seven innings in 3 2/3 innings, but he bounced back beautifully on Wednesday. His seven-strikeout performance was his best of the season, and the 30-year-old lowered his ERA to 4.84 in 61 1/3 innings. Fiers next goes against the Rangers in a difficult road matchup.
Jun 2 - 12:19 AM

Mike Fiers was pounded for seven runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Angels on Friday.

This is the first time Fiers has gotten lit up, but even his good starts haven't been great. He's 3-3 with a 5.20 ERA after this one, and he'd seem to be in serious jeopardy of losing his spot.
