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.
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.
