Brewers' Mike Fiers gets the nod on Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(5:37 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers will start the team's exhibition game on Wednesday, according to MLB.com.
The club will take on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Fiers will start, while Corey Knebel and Taylor Williams will come on in relief. The Brewers will start Cactus League play on Thursday, but manager Ron Roenicke has yet to announce his pitchers for that game.
Fiers, 29, is coming off a breakout season in which he posted a 2.13 ERA over 71 2/3 innings.
Brewers' Mike Fiers won't let Stanton incident affect his approach
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers said he still thinks about the night he hit Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton in the face with a fastball. However, despite the horrific moment during a September start last season, Fiers said he can't be afraid to pitch inside, per MLB.com.
"It's obviously still in my head. You get flashbacks every once in a while," Fiers said. "That moment was really tough for a lot of people, but it's definitely behind. I had to put it behind me pretty quick, you know? We were in a tough situation, in a playoff race. I didn't want to be the one where I hit somebody and I was scared to pitch again, especially with this team needing quality starts going into that last month of the season.
"[Stanton] knows it was definitely an accident. Me pitching the way I do, I have to pitch up, I have to pitch in, I have to pitch everywhere."
In three starts after beaning Stanton, Fiers went 0-3, but he posted two quality starts and a 3.00 ERA. Fiers had a pretty good run in the majors last season, going 6-5 with a 2.13 ERA in 14 outings (10 starts).
"Pitching 'in' is huge," he said. "[I figured that out] even before I got to pro ball, especially with those [aluminum] bats they use. If you threw in, you had to throw in off [the plate], and then go back away. But they had to respect that pitch in. You can't just sit there and throw away, away, away. Even the lower-level hitters are going to adjust."
Mike Fiers surrenders two runs in loss vs. Reds
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/23/14) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers took a loss Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on four hits and one walk in five innings while striking out three in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Reds.
Fiers (6-4) fell behind right away, surrendering back-to-back solo home runs in the first inning, but though he pitched well over the remainder of his outing, the offense wasn't able to pick him up. Fiers owns a 1.92 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 69:16 K:BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to close the season for the Brewers Sunday against the Cubs.
Mike Fiers strikes out seven in loss vs. Cardinals
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers took a loss Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out seven in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Cardinals.
Fiers (6-3) pitched six near flawless innings before running into trouble in the seventh, walking a batter and allowing two singles to bring home two runs, one with the help of an error. Still, he owns an excellent 1.78 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 66:15 K:BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings. Fiers is slated to face the Reds Tuesday.
Mike Fiers fans eight in win over Miami
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/12/14) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers struck out eight over five scoreless innings for the win Thursday night at home against the Marlins, improving to 6-2 on the year. He allowed three hits and three walks in 82 pitches, 52 of which were strikes.|
Over his last three starts covering 21 2/3 innings, Fiers has allowed five earned runs. He owns a 1.86 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP over 53 1/3 innings of work. He will make his next scheduled start Wednesday at St. Louis.
|2014 summary: Mike Fiers' first 12 starts in 2012 were so good and his last 10 (plus three more in 2013) so bad that most people assumed he had gotten by on smoke and mirrors and was condemned to play out the rest of his career as Triple-A rotation filler. But he was so dominant in that role for the first four months of 2014 that the Brewers gave him another shot for the final two. And the rest, as they say, is history.|
Playing time status: Fiers was so dominant in his 10 starts, compiling a 2.09 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 9.9 strikeouts per nine innings, that he'll have a starting role to begin 2014. And while some caution is warranted given his history, it'll probably take another full-fledged meltdown for him to lose it again.
2015 outlook: Equipped with a high-80s fastball, Fiers was unconventionally dominant in 2014, just as he was throughout his minor-league career. But it's not like teams lost their scouting report from his earlier meltdown, which must mean it just doesn't apply anymore. Fiers is a boom-or-bust pick if there ever was one, but the upside is enough to target him among the top 40 starting pitchers.
