(5/11/13) The Brewers are expected to recall pitcher Mike Fiers from Class A Brevard County Sunday, the team announced. Fiers will take the roster spot of Tom Gorzelanny, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury following Saturday's loss to the Reds.
Fiers is 0-1 with an 8.59 ERA over three appearances -- one start -- and manager Ron Roenicke said the right-hander would be used in long relief.
|Mike Fiers assigned to Brevard County |

(5/7/13) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers has been transferred to Class A Brevard County to deal with a personal matter.
Fiers has been solid in 17 innings at Triple-A, with a 1.59 ERA. He's still shown control issues, with nine walks. Fiers will be assigned to Brevard County so he can be closer to his family. Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said he would respect Fiers' privacy and would not talk about the issue at this time.
|Mike Fiers sharp since demotion to Triple-A|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/5/13) Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers has pitched well since his demotion to Triple-A Nashville in mid-April. Although he is 0-1 through three starts, Fiers has a 1.59 ERA and .197 opponents' batting average.
Fiers has struck out 17 batters and allowed one home run in 17 innings, but he has issued nine walks, which has helped elevate his WHIP (1.24). Fiers was 0-1 with an 8.59 ERA for Milwaukee prior to his demotion.
|Mike Fiers trying to remain upbeat|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/18/13) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers tried to remain upbeat Thursday after being demoted to Triple-A Nashville. Fiers said he's been told he will make at least two starts for Nashville, with the first one scheduled for Saturday.
"I guess nothing surprises me in this game," he told MLB.com. "I didn’t start off the year that well, so I have to go down. They need someone right now who is reliable, and I guess they feel like I’m not that guy right now. I guess I need to get better. It’s not the end of the world. I still need to pitch better and prove myself there and come back up and pitch again. It’s on me to pitch well and get back up here as soon as possible."
|It's not every day that a soft-tossing righty can punch out a major league batter per inning, but that's exactly what rookie Mike Fiers did for the Brewers last season. He quickly became a Fantasy favorite, as he made it into the first week of August with a 6-4 record, 1.80 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. As good as Fiers was at racking up Ks and limiting free passes, those numbers were too good to be true. A flyball pitcher, Fiers somehow managed to allow only three home runs through his first 80 innings, but over the last two months of the season, his luck reversed dramatically. In his final 10 starts, Fiers allowed nine home runs over just 47 2/3 innings, and he posted a 6.99 ERA over that span. Owners shouldn't expect either version of Fiers to show up in 2013, as he should find the middle ground. His end-of-season 3.74 ERA and 1.26 WHIP are probably not far from what he will put up this coming season. Even during his slump, Fiers kept on getting strikeouts, so despite his low velocity, he can help in that category. Consider him a late-round option in standard mixed leagues. (Updated 3/29/13)|
