Date:

Mike Fiers will start Wednesday's game versus the Giants on three days' rest.

Fiers threw 86 pitches over five innings on Saturday against the Braves. The Brewers still need a starter to replace Wily Peralta (oblique), but they've decided to delay a decision for now. Taylor Jungmann, Tyler Thornburg and Tyler Cravy could be considered for a call-up on Sunday.
May 26 - 9:34 PM

Mike Fiers got a no-decision, yielding two runs in 5 2/3 innings as the Brewers edged out the Tigers on Monday.

The Tigers scored their first run in a ground out and their second on an infield single. The right-hander gave up six hits overall while walking one and striking out three. Fiers hasn't been much of an innings-eater, having thrown only 41 2/3 over eight starts. He also has a 4.75 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP, and a 52/16 K/BB ratio. He'll take the hill in Atlanta against the Braves next.
May 18 - 10:32 PM

Mike Fiers held the White Sox to two runs over 6 1/3 innings Tuesday, settling for a no-decision against the Brewers.

Fiers allowed five hits and a walk in the game, with both runs against scoring in the fifth inning. The right-hander struck out seven in the game. The start was a strong rebound from a subpar outing against the Dodgers his last time out. Fiers will take a 1-4 record and 5.00 ERA into Monday's interleague contest with the Tigers.
May 12 - 11:17 PM

Mike Fiers allowed five runs on five hits across five innings in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Fiers posted some wonky numbers in this start. He struck out eight. That's good. He walked five. That's bad. The five runs, also bad. Fiers has shown this erratic quality before, as in his last start, he struck out twelve (good), and in the outing before that, he gave up nine hits and two walks in just four innings (bad). Over 29 2/3 innings, he holds a 41/14 K/BB to go with a 5.46 ERA and 1.72 WHIP. It's hard to recommend a pitcher with those kinds of Jekyll/Hyde numbers, but the strikeout rate is impressive if nothing else. Fiers will attempt to put Mr. Hyde in chains when he goes home to face the White Sox in his next start.
May 7 - 5:46 PM

Mike Fiers held the Cardinals to two runs -- one earned -- over four innings Sunday in a no-decision.

Fiers flirted with great danger all afternoon, yielding nine hits and two walks over his four frames. But the St. Louis offense couldn't capitalize. Fiers is 0-3 with a 5.79 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 18 2/3 innings this season. He gets the Cubs on the road next.
Apr 26 - 5:22 PM

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.
