Brewers' Mike Fiers strikes out six in no-decision Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up two runs (one earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out but pitching just four-plus innings in his team's 6-3 win over the Cardinals.

Despite the plethora of base-runners, Fiers was able to work three scoreless innings before surrendering an RBI single in the fourth inning that came after he committed a throwing error with two outs. He then served up a solo home run to open the fifth and was immediately pulled.

Fiers owns a 5.79 ERA and 22:7 K:BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings over four starts. He'll continue to look for his first win Saturday against the Cubs in Chicago.


Brewers' Mike Fiers serves up a pair of grand slam HRs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers became the 10th National League pitcher to serve up a pair of grand slams in a single game during Tuesday's 16-10 loss to the Reds.

Fiers (0-3) allowed a grand slam to Jay Bruce in the third, and another home run with the bases loaded to Todd Frazier in the fourth inning for his only blemishes of the night. He was charged with eight runs -- four earned -- on six hits and three walks while striking out four over four innings pitched.

Fiers became the first pitcher to allow two grand slams in the same game since Daniel Schlereth for the Tigers on June 28, 2011. He will look to get back on track Sunday at home against St. Louis. Fiers allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings on April 16 against the Cardinals.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Fiers will be facing a Reds team that has totaled 43 runs in 13 games, which ranks 22nd in the majors. The Reds are also batting .226 with a .358 slugging percentage and 74 strikeouts against right-handed pitchers. They have hit 11 home runs off righties.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers drops to 0-2


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Fiers (0-2) pitched well for the most part, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk in 5 2/3 innings. He had four strikeouts. But Lackey was just that much better, striking out eight in seven scoreless innings.

The game was scoreless until Matt Holliday had a one-out RBI single in the sixth inning. Fiers was chased from the game on Matt Reynolds' two-out RBI double in the sixth. 

Fiers will be looking for his first win when he returns to the mound Tuesday against the Reds.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers aims to bounce back in day start Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) While Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers had eight strikeouts in his season debut last week against the Pirates, the rest of his performance was nothing to write home about. He allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk in five innings. He also hit a batter.

Fiers will make his second start Thursday at St. Louis. If history repeats itself, then Fiers has a very good chance to bounce back.

He is 1-1 with a 1.29 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in four career outings (two starts) at Busch Stadium. First pitch on Thursday is set for 1:45 p.m. ET. Fiers was 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA in four appearances (three starts) during the day last season.


Mike Fiers gives up five runs in five innings for Brewers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers gave up five runs in five innings in a 6-2 loss to the Pirates on Friday.

"Left some pitches up," manager Ron Roenicke said after the game, per MLB.com. "Missed locations on some."

Fiers gave up seven hits and one walk while striking out eight. He had 89 pitches, 59 for strikes. Fiers struck out the side in the first inning before running into trouble in the second, surrendering three runs.

"That first inning was pretty impressive, and then to come back and have them get three off you after you do that ..," Roenicke said. "But then he settled down. I know he gave up the home run to (Pedro) Alvarez on a bad pitch, but overall he threw the ball well. It was just that second inning."

Fiers next pitches on Thursday, against St. Louis and John Lackey.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"For me, it's good that I'm getting another start to work on my stuff again," Fiers said after the outing, per MLB.com "I don't think I'm 100 percent ready right now."

Fiers has posted a 4.73 ERA and 6:9 K:BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings. He's expected to make his regular-season debut April 10 against the Pirates.

"Great day," Fiers said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I was really throwing strikes and getting back to where I was. I think I'm pretty much there. It's all about getting the pitch count up now."

Fiers has surrendered four earned runs in 8 1/3 innings this spring while striking out three and walking five.

Roenicke: Brewers' Fiers should be OK to open season in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said starting pitcher Mike Fiers, who is sidelined due to shoulder weakness, should be OK to open the season in the rotation, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Roenicke said Fiers could be pushed back the first time through the rotation or even skipped, but he could avoid a trip to the disabled list.

Roenicke added Fiers could pitch in a minor-league game as early as Sunday.

“We’re debating whether it will be in a minor-league game, which we can control better,” Roenicke said. “So we may do that. And then the challenge is to slot him back in and how we can get him back to pitch that fourth or fifth game (in the regular season).”

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"Just kind of tired. I couldn't get a good feel in my bullpen," said Fiers, who hopes to be back on the mound Saturday against the Diamondbacks. He will throw a bullpen on Thursday.

The right-handed hurler is 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA through two spring starts. He's allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings. He also has three strikeouts.


Brewers set spring rotation, Kyle Lohse lined up for opening day


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse will start the team's Cactus League opener Thursday, MLB.com reports, lining Lohse up to receive the opening-day start on April 6.

Though Lohse appears in line to start opening day, he dodged a question regarding the potential assignment. "How about we answer that question when something is official?" Lohse said.

After Lohse's Thursday start, the Brewers will line up Matt Garza, Wily Peralta, Mike Fiers and Jimmy Nelson in the spring rotation, FOXSportsWisconsin.com reports.


Brewers' Mike Fiers gets the nod on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) 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
(2/25/2015) 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."

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 is the greatest


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/20/2014) 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.


Mike Fiers turns in another strong start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers turned in another quality outing Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Fiers allowed one run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out six and issued one walk during the outing. The Blue Jays were able to scratch across their only run in the second inning. Fiers gave up a single and double to the first two batters he faced during the inning. The leadoff man came around to score on a groundout. That was the only damage done against Fiers for the rest of the game. He tossed five perfect innings before being pulled after the seventh. 

With the win, Fiers improved to 3-1. He'll take on the Pirates in his next start.
