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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Fiers enjoyed a breakout 2012 season with the Brewers before posting a 7.25 ERA in just 22 1/3 innings with the big-league team last season. He's been incredible with Nashville in 2014, going 6-2 with a 2.53 ERA and impeccable 92:9 K:BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings.


Brewers cut seven from major-league camp Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
