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

Date:

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.
Apr 23 - 8:03 PM

Mike Fiers picked up a win Sunday despite allowing four earned runs over 5 2/3 innings to the Tigers.

Fiers was rolling right along until the top of the fifth inning, when Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a solo homer and Ian Kinsler added a two-run shot. J.D. Martinez then went deep of Fiers in the top of the sixth. The right-hander is sporting a rough 6.48 ERA through three starts this season, but he now stands 1-1. He'll try for better all-around results next week against Boston.
Apr 17 - 6:04 PM

Mike Fiers turned in a quality start in Tuesday's loss to the Royals, yielding three runs on six hits over six innings.

Fiers struck out three and walked one in the outing. All three runs against him came home to roost in the first inning, when Lorenzo Cain slugged a three-run homer to left to put the defending champs up 3-0. While Fiers would not allow another run in the contest, three was all the Royals needed with Kris Medlen and a stacked bullpen collectively dealing on the mound. This was at least an improvement over Fiers' first start of the 2016 campaign. The Yankees rocked him for five runs on nine hits over five innings last time out. After being traded to the Astros last season, the 30-year-old right-hander held a 3.32 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 59/21 K/BB ratio across 62 1/3 innings (nine starts). He will shoot for his first win of the season when the Tigers come to town this weekend.
Apr 13 - 12:06 AM

Mike Fiers surrendered five runs and nine hits in five innings Thursday against the Yankees.

Fiers caught a break in the second inning, when the Yankees had three hits that could have been doubles and ended up with just one run. He gave up another run in the third and then a pair of solo homers in the fourth. It just wasn't a very impressive performance, and he'll have to be better to guarantee that he keeps his rotation spot following the return of Lance McCullers Jr.
Apr 7 - 7:42 PM

In his final spring tuneup, Mike Fiers allowed a pair of solo homers over 5 1/3 innings in Friday’s 4-2 win over the Brewers.

Fiers struck out seven and walked none. He's right on track for his season debut next Thursday against the Yankees. The 30-year-old posted a 3.32 ERA and 59/21 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings after being acquired from the Brewers last July and should remain a solid contributor in mixed leagues during his first full season in the American League.
Apr 1 - 6:18 PM

Mike Fiers was tagged for six runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday by the Braves.

Fiers entered with a 2.25 ERA in eight innings, so he can afford the one bad day. He clinched a spot in Houston's rotation with the news that Lance McCullers was going on the DL, though he really should have been in line for one anyway.
Mar 22 - 4:44 PM

Mike Fiers threw three innings of scoreless ball in the Astros' loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Fiers didn't allow a hit or a walk and struck out four. He also posted zeroes in his Grapefruit League debut Monday against the Yankees. The right-hander had a 3.69 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 180/64 K/BB ratio in 180 1/3 innings last season between the Brewers and Astros, and he could be ready to take another step forward in 2016.
Mar 12 - 4:39 PM

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Sep 23, 2015 06:08:00 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.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 07:02:00 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.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 09:17:00 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.
