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.

Date:

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.
May 28 - 1:10 AM

Mike Fiers took a tough-luck loss against the Rangers on Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings.

Fiers pitched well enough to win, but his offense backed him with just one run. For the evening, he struck out six without walking a batter. He served up a solo home run to Elvis Andrus in the second inning and an RBI single to pugilist Rougned Odor in the third to account for the scoring on his line. That makes two impressive starts in a row for the 30-year-old right-hander, who has allowed just three runs on nine hits in his last 14 innings. For the season, he holds a 4.35 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 37/7 K/BB ratio over nine appearances (eight starts) covering 51 2/3 innings. A road jaunt against the Angels shows next on his schedule.
May 21 - 9:59 PM

Mike Fiers limited the Indians to one run and three hits in seven innings to win Monday.

Fiers really needs to step it up to have a chance of retaining his rotation spot following Lance McCullers' return, and that was some definite progress tonight, as he lowered his ERA to 4.65. Next up for him is a start in Fenway against the Red Sox. It's still possible he'll lose his spot later this month.
May 9 - 11:43 PM

Mike Fiers allowed four runs and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday versus the Twins.

Fiers was served a win on a silver platter tonight, what with the Astros scoring six runs in the first two innings and nine through four. Fiers, though, gave up three in the third and one in the fourth and was finally pulled in the fifth with his pitch count up to 95. He's put himself in position to lose his rotation spot following the return of Lance McCullers from the DL.
May 5 - 12:15 AM

Mike Fiers pitched seven innings of two-run ball Friday against the Athletics.

Fiers has pitched quite well his last two times out, lowering his ERA from 6.48 to 4.97. It should be good enough to help him stay in the rotation following Lance McCullers' return from the DL.
Apr 30 - 1:39 AM

Mike Fiers scattered two runs and five hits over 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a win over the Red Sox.

Fiers labored at times Saturday but mostly kept the damage to a minimum. He finished with six strikeouts and two walks. He settled down after a chaotic first inning, retiring 15 of 16 hitters before running into another rough patch in the sixth. The Astros have been pretty conservative with Fiers' usage this year, keeping him under 90 pitches in two of his first four outings. His next turn will come Friday against the Athletics.
