Mike Fiers allowed four earned runs, six hits and a walk over five innings in a loss in Seattle on Saturday.
Fiers threw just 64 of his 100 pitches for strikes, whiffing just two batters while serving up a pair of homers. He has yielded at least one homer in five straight outings while serving up 10 total homers in just 43 1/3 innings across eight starts. He'll look to snap that homers allowed streak in his next assignment Friday against the visiting White Sox. May 20 - 1:22 AM

Mike Fiers held the Indians to one run over six innings in a victory Monday.

Fiers had just eight wins in 28 starts for the 101-win Astros last year. This year, he's already managed four wins in seven starts for a Tigers team that was expected to lose at least 101. He hasn't been great -- he has a 4.23 ERA while averaging barely more than five innings per start -- but he's getting the job done.
May 14 - 10:45 PM

Mike Fiers won Tuesday after allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Rangers.

Fiers has been exactly what he figured to be for the Tigers; he has a 4.73 ERA and has yet to go more than six innings in any of his six starts. That's good enough to keep his spot, but it's not likely to lead to much trade value for the Tigers or fantasy value for AL-only leagues.
May 8 - 11:20 PM

Mike Fiers gave up five runs in four innings Thursday in his start against the Royals.

Fiers gave up two homers today, bringing his total to six allowed in 28 innings this year. That's pretty much the same kind of pace he was on last year, when he allowed 32 in 153 1/3 innings for Houston. There's just no way he can amass fantasy value while giving up this many homers.
May 3 - 6:09 PM

Mike Fiers logged a quality start in a losing effort against the Orioles on Friday night, surrendering three runs on four hits over his six innings.

Fiers racked up five strikeouts on the night while walking one. Most of the damage against him came via the long ball, with solo home runs from Manny Machado and Pedro Alvarez. The veteran right-hander has performed as expected, posting a 3.91 ERA and 1.26 WHIP through his first four starts. He'll try to get back in the win column on Wednesday when he does battle against the Rays.
Apr 27 - 9:37 PM

Mike Fiers allowed four runs -- two earned -- in 5 1/3 innings to earn a win over the Royals on Saturday.

It wasn't one of his better outings but luckily he was facing the light-hitting Royals so he got away with it. He failed to strike out a single batter and surrendered 10 knocks. Two of the runs were unearned thanks to an error by catcher James McCann. Fiers wasn't at his best today but he has been pretty good on the whole so far this year. He improves to 2-1 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.41 WHIP through three starts.
Apr 21 - 4:48 PM

Mike Fiers wasn't at his best on Friday, surrendering six runs (five earned) on eight hits across 5 2/3 innings in a losing effort against the Yankees.

Fiers struck out four and walked one in the ballgame. Aaron Hicks was responsible for the bulk of the damage, with a two-run inside-the-park homer in the second inning and a solo blast in the sixth. Fiers will bring a 3.86 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Orioles.
Apr 13 - 10:40 PM

Mike Fiers (back) fired six scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the White Sox on Sunday.

Fiers allowed just three hits with one walk, and he struck out six in his 2018 debut. The former Houston starter was awful this spring and opened the year on the disabled list, but he didn't look anything close to injured in his six innings on Sunday. He'll look to follow up this strong effort on Friday against a much tougher lineup when he takes on the Yankees.
Apr 8 - 5:25 PM

Tigers activated RHP Mike Fiers from the 10-day disabled list.

Fiers will make his Tigers debut Sunday against the White Sox. He's been out with a back strain.
Apr 8 - 11:17 AM

Mike Fiers (back) is expected to make his Tigers debut on Sunday against the White Sox.

Fiers has been out of commission with a lumbar strain in his back, but he threw 83 pitches over six innings Monday in a game in minor league camp. The veteran right-hander had a terrible spring training and should be avoided for fantasy purposes even against a less-than-intimidating White Sox offense.
Apr 6 - 11:12 AM

Mike Fiers (back) threw 83 pitches over six innings Monday in a game in minor league camp.

The Tigers will have a discussion about the next step, but it's possible he could be cleared to join the rotation this weekend against the White Sox. Fiers is getting a late start on the season due to a lumbar strain in his back. The 32-year-old signed a one-year, $6 million deal with Detroit during the offseason.
Apr 3 - 10:52 AM

Mike Fiers (back) will pitch in a minor league game Monday in Lakeland, Florida.

If it goes well, he could join the Tigers' rotation later in the week. Fiers was placed on the disabled list March 28, retroactive to March 26, with a lumbar strain in his back. The veteran right-hander allowed 12 earned runs in 11 1/3 innings this spring in the Grapefruit League.
Apr 1 - 10:26 AM

Tigers placed RHP Mike Fiers on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to March 26 with a lumbar strain.

Fiers has been dealing with back issues all spring, and really struggled in his time in the Cactus League. This is likely precautionary care for the 32-year-old right-hander, and he should be back in the Detroit rotation at some point in April.
Mar 28 - 8:16 PM

Mike Fiers (back) will likely begin the year on the disabled list.

Fiers has struggled all spring, and then wasn't able to make his scheduled start on Tuesday. The Tigers don't need a fifth starter until the middle of April, so there's no need for Detroit to rush the 32-year-old starter back into the rotation. He can be avoided entirely in all fantasy formats.
Mar 21 - 5:45 PM

Mike Fiers (back) will not make his scheduled Grapefruit League start on Tuesday.

Sandy Baez has been called up to take Fiers' spot against the Yankees. Fiers has been pounded for 12 earned runs in 11 1/3 innings this spring, but he is still locked into a spot in the Tigers' rotation for now.
