Brewers' Mike Fiers (shoulder) allows one run in return Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers (shoulder) returned to the mound Thursday and surrendered one earned run on three hits and one walk in 3 2/3 innings in his team's 15-1 win over the Mariners.

Fiers has been limited this spring by shoulder weakness but is expected to open the season in the rotation. 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.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers (shoulder) to pitch Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers will make his next start Thursday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Fiers has been limited this spring by shoulder weakness but threw three innings in a minor-league start Sunday.

"Everything feels good," Fiers said, per MLB.com. "I'm happy with where I am right now. Looking forward to my next start."

Fiers will likely open the season as the team's No. 4 starter and make his first start April 10 against the Pirates.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers to throw in minor-league game Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers, who scratched from Thursday's spring start due to shoulder weakness, will throw in a minor-league game Sunday, per MLB.com.

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).”


Brewers' Mike Fiers has good bullpen, could pitch Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that pitcher Mike Fiers had a good bullpen session Thursday and could pitch in a game as soon as Saturday, though a specific timetable has yet to be determined, MLB.com reports.

Fiers was scratched from Thursday's scheduled start due to shoulder weakness following his last bullpen session. He's given up five runs (three earned) in 4 2/3 innings while striking out three and walking four this spring.


Brewers' Ron Roenicke: Mike Fiers scratched with 'shoulder weakness'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg will start Thursday's spring game against the Giants in place of Mike Fiers, who was scratched due to "shoulder weakness" following his last bullpen session, manager Ron Roenicke told reporter, per MLB.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."


Mike Fiers surrenders two runs in loss vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) 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
(9/17/2014) 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
(9/12/2014) 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.

Mike Fiers pitches well yet again Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) 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. 


Mike Fiers whiffs nine in losing effort Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) 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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) 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
(8/20/2014) 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. 


Mike Fiers makes a convincing case


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/14/2014) Remember the Mike Fiers who carried your Fantasy team for weeks on end in the summer of 2012? He's baaa-aaack.

He hinted at it in his first start Saturday with eight strong innings against the Dodgers but couldn't have confirmed it any louder than he did Thursday at the Cubs, striking out 14 over six shutout innings.

I have to say, for as hard as he fell, compiling a 7.98 ERA in his final 13 major-league starts before these two, I thought he'd need more than just two starts to convince me. But 14 strikeouts from a pitcher we've seen do it before (not quite that many, but one who's pitched well in general) says a lot.

And just like with his initial run of success, it's hard to figure out exactly where it came from. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote about it Wednesday, quoting him as saying he's just more confident now and attacks the strike zone more, which is less concrete than I'm comfortable with, but I know it's made the difference for other pitchers in the past. Starts like this one make it easy to take his word for it.

The best news is that even after that strong first start, he's still only 19 percent owned. Particularly if his relief pitcher eligibility matters in your format, that needs to change.


Mike Fiers on fire in dominating Cubs


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Brewers right-hander Mike Fiers provided encouragement with his win Saturday. But that was small potatoes compared to what he achieved Thursday on the road against the Cubs.

Fiers not only blanked the NL Central rival for six innings, but he struck out 14 in the process after fanning just five in eight innings in his last start. He struck out the side in the second, fifth and sixth innings while surrendering three hits and walking just one.

He will seek to maintain his momentum Wednesday against Toronto.


Mike Fiers an interesting case


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/13/2014) With an average fastball at best and no pedigree to speak of, Mike Fiers wasn't supposed to do what he did in his first 13 appearances (including 12 starts) in 2012, compiling a 1.80 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP and 9.0 strikeouts per nine innings. Sure, he dominated in the minor leagues the year before, but any pitcher with his control could do that. The major leagues are a different animal.

So when he posted a 6.99 ERA over his final 10 starts that year, it seemed like a fitting end. And when he allowed 15 earned runs on 21 hits over 10 2/3 innings in his only three starts the following year, that pretty much confirmed it: He was a Quadruple-A pitcher.

But then after doing what Quadruple-A pitchers do, dominating Triple-A with a 2.55 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings in 17 starts, Fiers got a chance to fill in for an injured Matt Garza Saturday and allowed one run on three hits in eight innings against the Dodgers. It was his first decent start in two years, and it was way more than just decent.

So what does it all mean? We've seen Fiers be awesome, and we've seen him be terrible, with almost nothing in between. The reminder of how good he can be is probably incentive enough to add him in Head-to-Head points leagues, where his relief pitcher eligibility only boosts his value, but I don't trust him enough to start him yet.


Mike Fiers tosses eight one-run innings vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers earned a win Tuesday, allowing just one earned run on three hits and one walk in eight innings and striking out five in his team's 4-1 victory over the Dodgers.

Fiers (1-1) enjoyed a successful return to the majors after tossing four relief appearances earlier this year. His only damage came on a fourth-inning home run that didn't take away his lead. Fiers owns a 1.80 ERA and 10:4 K:BB ratio in 15 innings. He's scheduled to face the Cubs Thursday.


Brewers recall Mike Fiers to start Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) The Brewers recalled pitcher Mike Fiers after Friday's game to make the start Saturday against the Dodgers.

Fiers has made four relief appearances for the big-league club, giving up two earned runs in seven innings. He owns a 2.55 ERA and 129:17 K:BB ratio in 102 1/3 innings over 17 starts with Triple-A Nashville.


Mike Fiers will start in Matt Garza's place Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) The Brewers will recall pitcher Mike Fiers from Triple-A Nashville to make the start Saturday against the Dodgers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Fiers has not pitched in the majors since June 24. He owns a 2.57 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over seven innings of work for the Brewers this season.

Mike Fiers down, Alfredo Figaro up for Brewers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Brewers have optioned Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville and promoted fellow right-hander Alfredo Figaro from the same team.

The move gives the team a fresh arm after a 16-inning marathon Tuesday night in which Fiers pitched four innings, gave up two runs and took the loss.


Mike Fiers takes loss in extra innings Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers was saddled with a loss Tuesday after giving up two earned runs on four hits in four innings while striking out four in his team's 4-2, 16-inning defeat against the Nationals.

Fiers (0-1) did a great job through three innings before surrendering the decisive two-run home run in the top of the 16th. In four appearances with the Brewers, Fiers owns a 2.57 ERA and 5:3 K:BB ratio in seven innings.
