Brewers optioned RHP Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville.
The 28-year-old right-hander was brutal in his time with the Brewers in 2014, and wasn't any better in limited work this spring with a 9.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in his two innings. He's merely organizational fodder for the Brewers at this point. Mar 14 - 8:25 PM

Mike Fiers gave up two runs in an inning as the Brewers fell to the Cubs 4-2 on Monday.

After allowing back-to-back singles to lead off the seventh, Fiers appeared to be on his way to dancing out of the inning, getting consecutive strikeouts. But a walk followed by a single broke the tie, giving the Cubs the 4-2 lead. Fiers is trying to rebound after a rough 2013 in which he finished with a 7.25 ERA and suffered a broken forearm.
Mar 3 - 7:36 PM

Michael Fiers will be sidelined for the next 9-12 weeks after a comebacker during Saturday's start at Triple-A Nashville broke his right forearm.

That means the best Fiers can probably hope for is returning to the major league club after rosters expand. It's been a rough year for the right-hander, as he was quickly booted from the Brewers' rotation and holds a 7.25 ERA over 11 appearances in his time with the big club.

Brewers optioned RHP Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville.

Fiers allowed five runs and didn't make it out of the second inning in his start Sunday against the Phillies. The 27-year-old has a 7.25 ERA in 11 appearances as both a starter and reliever for the Brewers this season.

Mike Fiers will start Sunday against the Phillies.

Fiers was originally scheduled to start Saturday, but the Brewers have decided to push him back after he tossed three innings of relief on Tuesday. Wily Peralta will move up in the rotation to pitch Saturday.

Mike Fiers allowed four runs -- including three homers -- in four innings Saturday in a loss to the Pirates.

It was only Fiers' second start of the year and his first since April 6. And he looked out of place. Fiers allowed homers to Andrew McCutchen, Pedro Alvarez and Neil Walker in his four innings, and the right-hander now has a 6.62 ERA on the year. He is not fantasy-relevant.

Brewers recalled RHP Mike Fiers from High-A Brevard County.

Tom Gorzelanny was placed on the disabled list Saturday, so the Brewers needed another reliever. Through his first three appearances (two in relief, one as a starter) with Milwaukee this season, Fiers owns an 8.59 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 1/2 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 frames. He will carry no fantasy relevance no matter his role.

Mike Fiers has been transferred from Triple-A Nashville to High-A Brevard County so that he can attend to a personal situation closer to his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Fiers was demoted last month, but he posted a 1.59 ERA and 17/9 K/BB ratio in 17 innings over three starts in Triple-A. The Brewers were happy to accommodate his request, but are hopeful that he'll be able to return to Nashville before long.

Brewers optioned RHP Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville.

Not unexpected, as Fiers struggled in his lone start on April 6 and was already scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday. He'll try to work through his mechanical issues in the minors. It's not clear who will replace him in the rotation, but Tyler Thornburg and Hiram Burgos are among the internal options.

Michael Fiers might not make his scheduled start on Saturday.

After a poor spring training, Fiers was knocked around for six runs over five innings in his lone start this season, and the Brewers aren't sure they want to give him another one. It's possible he'll get another shot, but the club won't hesitate to use him in relief before then if needed. "It will come down to what happens in some of these games," manager Ron Roenicke said. "If Fiers gets in them, or we think Fiers is needed to be our long guy in the bullpen, then we'll try to go grab somebody else. But it's going to come down, probably, to a couple of days before that start." Tyler Thornburg and Hiram Burgos are options to replace Fiers.

Michael Fiers surrendered six earned runs over five innings Saturday in the Brewers' loss to Arizona.

Fiers gave up nine hits -- including two homers -- and issued one walk. The 27-year-old right-hander was great last season, posting a 3.74 ERA and 9.5 K/9 in 127 2/3 innings as a rookie. But there's little chance of an encore in 2013. He's now 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA.

Michael Fiers has claimed the fifth spot in the Brewers' starting rotation.

It had been speculated that Fiers would get the boot from the rotation following the addition of Kyle Lohse, but Chris Narveson will actually head to the bullpen. While a repeat of his 2012 effort isn't very likely, Fiers should hold value in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues while he's getting the ball every fifth day.

Michael Fiers is expected to lose his spot in the Brewers' rotation following the addition of Kyle Lohse.

Most figured it would be youngster Wily Peralta that would get the boot, but it appears that Fiers getting knocked around in his last few Cactus League appearances has cost him. He will be used in long relief, as the Brewers are expected to carry 13 pitchers to start the season while Lohse builds up his stamina. Peralta is an intriguing late-round option in mixed leagues.

Mike Fiers was knocked around for seven runs over just three innings in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Fiers was hit hard for the second straight outing, giving up eight hits -- including a pair of homers -- and two walks. His ERA is up to 6.98 for the spring, but he'll enter the season with a rotation spot. Since he relies so heavily on deception rather than velocity, the jury is still out on whether he can replicate his impressive 2012 numbers over the long-term.

Michael Fiers allowed eight hits and five runs in four innings of the Brewers 9-9 tie with the Reds Saturday.

Fiers wasn't just getting dinked and dunked, either, as he allowed five doubles and a home run. After an impressive 22-start run in 2012 in which he struck out over a batter per inning, there is some question as to whether the 27-year-old can duplicate that success over a full season. Fortunately for the righty, his rotation spot is guaranteed heading into 2013.
