Mike Fiers lost after allowing three runs -- two earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Thursday against the Diamondbacks.
Fiers is 0-4 with a 7.36 ERA in his last five starts. The Astros were going to bump Brad Peacock from the rotation when Collin McHugh returned last month, but since they lost Lance McCullers, they never had to make the decision. Now it's clear that if someone is going to be bumped, whether it's for a trade acquisition or perhaps McCullers' return next month, it should be Fiers. Aug 17 - 5:18 PM

Mike Fiers allowed six runs over four innings of work in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

Fiers was victimized by the long ball, serving up a three-run homer to Brett Nicholas and a solo dong to Mike Napoli, and he also walked four on the night. The 32-year-old gave the Astros some real quality innings in the first half but has struggled of late, losing three straight decisions and watching his ERA balloon from 3.59 to 4.36 over a four-game stretch. Assuming the club continues to roll with the right-hander -- and with their lead in the AL West, there isn't a huge pressure to replace Fiers -- he'll take on the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Aug 13 - 1:33 AM

Mike Fiers surrendered five runs (four earned) on four hits over six-plus innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

Fiers allowed a pair of two-run home runs in the win, coughing up one to Jose Bautista in the third inning and a second to Nori Aoki in the seventh. That Aoki homer flipped the score from a 3-2 Astros advantage to a 4-3 edge for the Jays. Before all was said and done, Fiers struck out six and walked three. He will carry a 4.06 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into a road showdown with the Rangers next time he takes to the mound.
Aug 6 - 5:51 PM

Mike Fiers lost after giving up six runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Rays.

Fiers survived giving up five runs in the first three innings and faced just one batter over the minimum through the next three frames. He was pulled after a one-out walk to Corey Dickerson in the seventh, and Dickerson came around to score off Reymin Guduan. That marked the first time all season that Fiers had been charged with six runs. He fell to 7-6 with a 3.97 ERA.
Aug 2 - 12:14 AM

Mike Fiers took a loss to the Phillies after giving up three runs in four innings on Wednesday.

It took him 102 pitches to get through four innings. He struck out seven batters but gave up five hits, three walks and drilled two batters with pitches. The key blow was a two-run homer by catcher Cameron Rupp in the fourth inning. Fiers falls to 7-5 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.28 WHIP.
Jul 26 - 11:38 PM

Mike Fiers was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Orioles, racking up nine strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball.

Fiers scattered six hits and a walk on the impressive evening. The only blemish on his night came on an RBI single by Jonathan Schoop in the third inning. He has been pitching out of his mind for awhile now, compiling a 2.36 ERA over his last 10 starts. He'll carry a 3.59 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 107/38 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
Jul 21 - 10:15 PM

Mike Fiers struck out a season-high 11 batters while allowing two runs on four hits over seven innings in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Twins.

Fiers had some issues keeping the ball in the park -- he surrendered solo home runs to Kennys Vargas and Ehire Adrianza -- but this was a sharp outing nonetheless. This was his first double-digit strikeout game in 18 starts this season. He will bring a 3.75 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into a road showdown with the Orioles next time out as he tries to maintain the momentum of Sunday's strong showing.
Jul 16 - 5:00 PM

Mike Fiers let up five hits and three runs over six innings Saturday in the Astros’ 7-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

He struck out six and walked four while throwing 59 of his 105 pitches for strikes. Fiers held Toronto scoreless until the fifth when Josh Donaldson broke through with a three-run homer. The right-hander’s command wasn’t there, especially early on when he allowed four walks in his first three innings. The 32-year-old will finish the first half with a respectable 3.84 ERA over 17 starts.
Jul 8 - 5:12 PM

Mike Fiers walked four without allowing a run over four innings in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

While Fiers had issues with his control in this one, he allowed just two hits and struck out seven while going in and out of trouble. The veteran hurler will carry a 3.80 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a road start against the Blue Jays next time he takes to the mound.
Jul 2 - 5:43 PM

Mike Fiers was charged with four runs in 5 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the A's.

Fiers deserved better; he left with the score tied 1-1 and the bases loaded with two outs in the sixth. James Hoyt took over and gave up a grand slam. If Hoyt had gotten that out, Fiers has a 3.66 ERA right now. Instead, he's at 3.98.
Jun 28 - 12:17 AM

Mike Fiers yielded three hits and one run over six stellar frames Wednesday in the Astros’ victory over the Athletics.

He struck out five and walked three. Fiers was a little erratic early, hitting a batter and walking two others over his first two innings, but he settled down after that. Oakland’s only run off Fiers came in the seventh inning when Luke Gregerson allowed one of two inherited runners to score. Fiers benefited from strong defense as the Astros were able to turn three double plays. The veteran right-hander is now 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA over his last five starts.
Jun 22 - 1:37 AM

Mike Fiers held the Red Sox to one run and five hits over seven innings in a no-decision Friday.

Fiers has lowered his ERA from 5.21 to 4.00 by giving up five earned runs over 25 1/3 innings in his last four starts. Mixed leaguers should still be able to do better in general, but he does have favorable back-to-back starts against the A's coming up.
Jun 17 - 1:12 AM

Mike Fiers gave up one unearned run and struck out eight batters in 7 1/3 innings during a 3-1 victory over the Angels on Saturday.

He surrendered just two base hits and two walks while stifling the Angels' offense all evening. He made it through seven scoreless frames before letting in the unearned run on a fielder's choice grounder hit by Andrelton Simmons in the eighth inning. For the season Fiers is 4-2 with a 4.29 ERA in 12 starts. He has 58 strikeouts and 23 walks in 65 innings of work.
Jun 10 - 10:16 PM

Mike Fiers fanned eight while allowing two runs over six innings Tuesday in a victory over the Twins.

Within 72 hours of their announcement that they were moving Fiers to the pen, the Astros lost both Charlie Morton and Joe Musgrove to the disabled list. Obviously, that put Fiers right back into the rotation, and he came threw tonight with one of his best starts of the year. He's now 2-2 with a 4.96 ERA. He's only an option in AL-only leagues at the moment and not a great one there.
May 31 - 12:15 AM

Mike Fiers has been moved to the bullpen.

This comes after Fiers was knocked around for 10 hits and four runs (three earned) Thursday against Detroit. His rotation spot will be absorbed by Brad Peacock. Fiers will operate in a long relief role until a spot opens up for him in the starting rotation.
