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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) The Brewers will recall pitcher Mike Fiers from Triple-A Nashville after Tyler Thornburg was placed on the disabled list Saturday, the team announced.

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
(3/14/2014) The Brewers optioned first baseman Sean Halton and pitchers Mike Fiers and Hiram Burgos to Triple-A Nashville after Friday's 9-8 win over the Diamondbacks.

The team also re-assigned catcher Matt Pagnozzi, infielder Eugenio Velez, outfielder Kevin Mattison and pitcher Dustin Molleken to minor-league camp.


Mike Fiers out 9-12 weeks with broken arm


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2013) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers will miss 9-12 weeks due to a broken forearm resulting from a line drive Saturday at Triple-A Nashville, the club announced. Fiers had a 2.20 ERA in five starts at Triple-A and may have been in line to return to the major league club if not for the injury.

Mike Fiers shuffled back to Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2013) The Brewers optioned pitcher Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville Monday. Fiers fell to 1-4 after allowing seven runs (five earned) on seven hits and one walk in 1 2/3 innings Sunday against the Phillies.

Mike Fiers has shortest start of career


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2013) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers endured the shortest outing of his career as a starter during his fourth loss of the season Sunday against the Phillies. Fiers (1-4) surrendered seven runs -- five earned -- on seven hits and a walk while striking out one in 1 2/3 innings.

"It was just bad pitching on my part," Fiers said. "It's tough on a team to get going when the pitcher doesn't do well in the first inning."

Fiers has allowed 11 runs in his last 8 2/3 innings. He will get another crack at the Phillies Friday at Miller Park. He is 1-2 with a 6.60 ERA in five appearances (two starts) at home.

Wily Peralta moved to Saturday; Mike Fiers to start Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2013) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has flipped his starters against the Phillies. Wily Peralta will now start Saturday and Mike Fiers will take the hill Sunday in Philadelphia, according to MLB.com Friday.

Pirates tee off on Mike Fiers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2013) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers' return to the rotation did not go well Saturday, as he gave up three home runs in a 5-2 loss to the Pirates.

Fiers (1-3) allowed five hits and no walks in four innings, but gave up a home run in three of the four innings. He allowed four runs, struck out five and was pulled after throwing just 67 pitches. His ERA rose to 6.62 and he's allowed 10 runs in nine innings over two starts.

Fiers may not get another chance to start for the Brewers with Kyle Lohse aiming to return to the rotation Thursday against the Twins.  


Mike Fiers to get spot start


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2013) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers will get a spot start Saturday against Pittsburgh, MLB.com reports.

Fiers will get the nod with starter Kyle Lohse out due to elbow irritation. Fiers has a 5.93 ERA in eight appearances; he allowed six runs on nine hits over five innings against Arizona in his only start of the year.


Mike Fiers takes loss in extras


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2013) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers took his second loss on Tuesday night against the Pirates. He entered in the 12th inning with the game tied and surrendered a walk-off homer to the first batter he faced -- Andrew McCutchen.

Fiers, who was recalled from Class A Brevard County on Sunday, has an 8.68 ERA in five appearances (one start).

Mike Fiers headed back to big leagues


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2013) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2013) 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
(5/5/2013) 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
(4/18/2013) 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."


Mike Fiers optioned to Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2013) The Brewers announced after Thursday's game against the Giants that pitcher Mike Fiers was optioned to Triple-A Nashville. No corresponding move was made.

Fiers, who began the year in the rotation before being demoted to the bullpen, is 0-1 with a 8.59 ERA in three appearances (one start).


Brewers undecided on Saturday starter


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2013) The Brewers have yet to announce a starter for Saturday's contest against the Cubs, MLB.com reports.

Mike Fiers is the team's fifth starter but the club could opt to call up Tyler Thornburg or Hiram Burgos for the outing.

"It will come down to what happens in some of these games," manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday. "If Fiers gets in them, or we think Fiers is needed to be our long guy in the bullpen, then we'll try to go grab somebody else. But it's going to come down, probably, to a couple of days before that start."

Mike Fiers pitches scoreless inning


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2013) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers made his first relief appearance on Saturday against the Cardinals. He worked a 1-2-3 eighth inning and threw five of his six pitches for strikes.

Milwaukee does not need a fifth starter currently so Fiers will continue to work out of the bullpen.

Mike Fiers is worth stashing


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(4/10/2013) With the Brewers needing a fifth starter just once before April 30, it could be awhile before we see Mike Fiers in the starting rotation again. Assuming manager Ron Roenicke opts to use a spot starter on April 20 against the Cubs, owners would have to stash Fiers for the next two weekly scoring periods before they could use him again.

Had Fiers stayed in the rotation, he just might have been someone you sat for a two-start option in the next two weeks anyway, but that doesn't mean he's easily replaced. There will be at least some one-start weeks when you would use him, and he is close to a must-start in two-start weeks. Starting pitchers who can provide a strikeout per inning with good control don't grow on trees (or sit quietly on waivers), so Fiers is worth keeping around.


Brewers set rotation for Cardinals' series


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2013) The Brewers rotation has been pushed back a day in the wake of Wednesday's postponed game against the Cubs, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

After an off-day Thursday, Kyle Lohse will get the start Friday and will be followed by Yovani Gallardo on Saturday and Marco Estrada on Sunday. Mike Fiers, the Brewers' fifth starter, was already scheduled to be skipped with the off-day.


Brewers change rotation for weekend


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2013) The Brewers announced Tuesday that Yovani Gallardo will start the series opener against the Cardinals on Friday with Marco Estrada to follow on Saturday.

Mike Fiers has temporarily been moved to the bullpen as the club does not currently need a fifth stater. 

"The way it lined up, having the four guys, I think it's the 19th or 20th we need that fifth starter," manager Ron Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "Then we don't need him again after that for a little bit. So it made a lot of sense to us to do this.

"Then we'll see if it's Fiers, where we need him. If we get close to that date and he's thrown a lot, then maybe we have to go get somebody for that spot start," Roenicke said.


Could Mike Fiers get saves for Milwaukee?


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/9/2013) It seemed like such a little sidenote for the Brewers to mention: with Chris Narveson going to the DL, manager Ron Roenicke plans to send Mike Fiers to the bullpen because some creativity with the team's off days will allow them to use four starters in Narveson's absence. 

I will preface this with a warning: this is crazy speculation. But logically, it kind of makes some sense. We're looking at a Milwaukee team that just demoted its closer, with a replacement option that almost gave up a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth Monday (but was saved by the wind blowing in). Fiers actually came up as a closer in the minors and had very impressive numbers working out of the bullpen (he has 17 minor-league saves, for what that's worth). 

There's a fun bonus here, as well. If Fiers makes 10 relief appearances and then is returned to the rotation, he gets RP eligibility, which is beneficial in H2H formats. And if he proves adept at closer, the sky could be the limit (although Roenicke has said he expects Axford to return to the role). It's all a very confusing time in the Milwaukee pen right now, but this seems to be a move that, while unlikely, isn't the most implausible scenario -- a pitcher who was great in relief plugging a hole at closer. Fiers is the fourth most-dropped player in our leagues. If he's out there and you have room, it could be a sly move and, at the very least, be fun to root for. 


Brewers may skip Mike Fiers' next start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2013) With the Brewers scheduled to have three off-days in the next 17 days, manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com that he may opt to skip Mike Fiers' next start in the wake of his rough outing his last time out.

"The only thing that comes up is all of these off-days and whether we should skip somebody in the rotation to keep the other guys more on line. Not because we don't like our fifth starter, but just because we're trying to figure out what helps the other guys."

Fiers, who gave up six earned runs in five innings of work his last time out, is currently scheduled to face the Cardinals Friday night. He went 1-0 with an 0.75 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP in two starts last season against St. Louis.

Mike Fiers surrenders six runs in loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2013) Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers struggled in his season debut against the Diamondbacks Saturday, surrendering six earned runs on nine hits and a walk in five innings of work, striking out just one and throwing 97 pitches.

Fiers was followed in the game by Chris Narveson, who could eventually be in the mix to replace Fiers in the rotation if Fiers can't get things turned around in a hurry.


Mike Fiers helped out by pitching in minors


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2013) Despite posting a 6.98 ERA in six spring outings, Mike Fiers made the Brewers' rotation out of camp and will make his season debut Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

The right-hander last faced major leaguers on March 21 as the club had him throw in minor-league games his final two times before opening day. Fiers told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that those two outings helped him prepare for the regular season.

"It went great," he said Wednesday. "Actually the last two times I’ve pitched went a lot better than the starts before that. I don’t know what was going on early, but I think I figured out what I needed to, and those last two starts definitely helped me."

Fiers posted a 3.74 ERA in 23 appearances (22 starts) in the majors last season.
