(9/6/14) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers tossed his sixth quality start in as many trips to the mound Friday, in a 6-2 win over the Cardinals.
Fiers got plenty of support in the game, as he never trailed en route to the win. He allowed just two runs in 6 2/3 innings of work, on seven hits and a walk. He also struck out five batters on 107 pitches in the victory.
Fiers is now 5-1 since joining the Brewers' rotation in early August. He has a 2.03 ERA and 0.82 WHIP overall in 48 2/3 innings heading into his next start, set for Thursday against the Marlins.

(8/31/14) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers put together a quality start in a losing effort Saturday against the Giants in San Francisco, dropping to 4-2 on the season. The right-hander permitted three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven innings of a 3-1 defeat.
Over his last four starts covering 27 innings, Fiers has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 1.93 ERA and a 0.76 WHIP over 42 innings of work. He will make his next start Thursday at home against St. Louis.
|Mike Fiers strikes out seven in win vs. Pirates |

(8/24/14) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers earned a win Sunday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out seven in his team's 4-3 victory over the Pirates.
Fiers (4-1) gave up a two-run home run in the second inning but buckled down and let just one more runner reach base over the remainder of his outing. He's been on fire since joining the rotation, going 4-0 and allowing four earned runs in 28 innings over four starts. Fiers owns a 1.54 ERA, 0.66 WHIP and 37:7 K:BB ratio in 35 innings. He's scheduled to face the Giants Saturday.
|Mike Fiers is the greatest |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(8/20/14) Amazing or terrible -- that's all we've known Mike Fiers to be during his frequently interrupted big-league career. He tallied another in the amazing column Tuesday against the Blue Jays, allowing one run on two hits in seven crisp innings.
You know that when he's on, he throws strikes and eats innings, and you know all about his 14 strikeouts against the Cubs last time out. But you may not know that in three starts since returning from the minors, he's allowed just eight hits in 21 innings.
He's dominated in every facet, just like he did over 17 starts at Triple-A Nashville, where in one of the most hitter-friendly leagues in all the minors, he compiled a 2.55 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
He's already explained away his past failures by saying he's learned to attack hitters since then, and as dominant as he's been, especially in light of his history, you really don't have much reason to doubt him. And few Fantasy owners do. His ownership rate is now at 75 percent, up from 7 percent two weeks ago.
At some point in the next couple weeks, the Brewers will welcome Matt Garza back to the starting rotation, but I'm assuming, as long as the terrible version doesn't show up between now and then, Fiers will retain his spot even if it means bumping Jimmy Nelson to the bullpen.
|After he went out with a whimper in 2013, Mike Fiers' career is shaping up to be a cautionary tale of the dangers of sample size. In his first 12 starts (and one relief appearance) following a midseason callup in 2012, he looked like the best thing the Brewers farm system had ever developed, compiling a 1.80 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. In his final 10 starts to close out the season, he looked as out of place as a Big Mac in the Sausage Race, compiling a 6.99 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. So guess which version showed up in 2013? Despite a miserable spring training, Fiers backed into a rotation spot, which he promptly lost, causing him to bounce between the majors and the minors and the rotation and the bullpen before eventually breaking his forearm in mid-June. Though he did OK in five starts at Triple-A Nashville, posting a low ERA with a not-so-low walk rate, his chances of getting back to where he was seem pretty slim at age 28. Unless fringy long relievers are your thing, you can safely avoid Fiers on Draft Day.
