Mike Fiers is on the Astros' roster for Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Yankees.
Dallas Keuchel is starting the Wild Card game, but he's going on three days' rest, so Fiers gives Astros manager A.J. Hinch some flexibility just in case. Similar to the Yankees, the Astros are carrying nine pitchers for the one-game playoff. Matt Duffy made the roster as the 25th man while Jonathan Singleton was left off. Of course, the Astros will reset their roster if they advance to the ALDS. Oct 6 - 11:42 AM

Mike Fiers got a no-decision, allowing four runs (three earned) in 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

The Mariners scored twice on sacrifice flies in the first inning, but didn't manage anything else until Robinson Cano hit a two-run homer in the sixth. On the evening, Fiers gave up five hits and a walk while striking out seven. In nine starts and one relief appearance for the Astros since joining the team at the trade deadline, Fiers has a 3.32 ERA and a 59/21 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings. Fiers is on track to pitch the regular season finale, in Arizona against the Diamondbacks.
Sep 30 - 1:42 AM

Mike Fiers allowed three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Anaheim jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a C.J. Cron two-run single. Fiers did settle in from there, yielding only a solo homer to Kole Calhoun in the top of the fifth, but the Angels wound up winning 6-5 in a tight, back-and-forth game. Fiers will get the Mariners on the road next.
Sep 23 - 6:08 PM

Mike Fiers took a no-decision in Sunday's contest with the Angels, allowing three runs over seven innings.

Fiers pitched well enough for the win, but his offensive teammates failed to dig into the Angel arms for any sort of sustained run-scoring burst until they plopped down a five-spot in the ninth. He struck out eight without walking a batter. All three runs allowed came on the strength of solo homers, with Mike Trout smacking a solo shot in the first and C.J. Cron notching a pair of dingers in the second and seventh innings. Fiers will look to return to his winning ways when he takes his 3.07 ERA and 1.07 WHIP into a scheduled home showdown with the Athletics.
Sep 13 - 7:02 PM

Mike Fiers lost for the first time with the Astros after allowing four runs in five innings Monday versus the A's.

Fiers was making this start on eight days' rest after pitching on seven days' rest in his previous outing, all the result of him throwing 134 pitches in his no-hitter. Perhaps the odd schedule took a toll in this one, or maybe he was just due for a rough one. He's 2-1 with a 2.91 ERA in 37 innings for Houston.
Sep 7 - 9:17 PM

Mike Fiers pitched well in Saturday's win over the Twins, allowing one run on three hits over six innings.

Fiers no-hit the Dodgers last Friday and turned in another strong performance on Saturday. Though three hits did fall in this time around. The only Twin run to score in the game came on a Trevor Plouffe double play ball in the fourth. Otherwise, Fiers and the Astro bullpen got the job done. The 30-year-old right-hander improved to 2-0 with his new team while lowering his ERA to 2.25 across 32 AL innings. These same Twins will come to Houston next time Fiers is tasked with a start.
Aug 29 - 10:40 PM

Mike Fiers tossed his first career no-hitter in a 3-0 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Not only was it his first career no-hitter, it was also his first career complete game. Fiers needed a career-high 134 pitches in order to get it done. He struck out 10 batters and walked three to secure the fifth no-hitter of the 2015 MLB season. It was the 11th no-hitter in franchise history and the first since six pitchers combined to shut down the Yankees on June 11, 2003.
Aug 21 - 10:53 PM

Mike Fiers held his own in earning a Sunday no-decision against the Tigers, allowing two runs (none earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Three of the five hits Fiers allowed came in the first inning, when the Tigers scored a pair of runs via a deep Miguel Cabrera double and a Victor Martinez ground out. The 30-year-old right-hander struck out five and walked two. Since joining the Astros in late July, he's allowed nine runs in 17 innings, though it should be noted that six of those runs came in his first appearance with the team. This works out to a 3.71 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with his new club. He owned a 3.89 ERA over 118 innings prior to being dealt. A potentially tough home start against the Dodgers now awaits Fiers on the schedule.
Aug 16 - 5:58 PM

Mike Fiers turned in a strong start against the A's on Sunday, tossing 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in the no-decision.

Fiers tried his darnedest to bring home victory for the suddenly reeling Astros, but alas, 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball was not enough. Since jumping over to the AL, he's allowed seven runs over 11 2/3 innings, though six of those runs scored in his first appearance with the team. He pitched to a 3.89 ERA over 118 innings for the Brewers prior to being traded on June 30. A Sunday afternoon home start against the Tigers is up next on his schedule.
Aug 9 - 8:27 PM

Mike Fiers will start Sunday against the Athletics.

Fiers made his Astros debut in relief Monday against the Rangers and was knocked around for six runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings. The Astros are calling up Dan Straily to pitch Tuesday.
Aug 4 - 8:38 AM

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.
Jul 30 - 8:05 PM

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.
