Brewers | Mike Fiers to throw Thursday

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 11:38:32 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers (shoulder) will pitch again in spring training Thursday, March 26, according to manager Ron Roenicke. That would line Fiers up to be the team's No. 4 starter with a season debut April 10 against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers has high strikeout upside in the Brewers rotation, and he's worth a late-round stab in mixed leagues. At home against the Pirates in his first start may not be the chance to take a chance on him at FantasyScore, though, for $5,800 (11.6% of cap).

Brewers | Mike Fiers should be ready

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 11:03:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers (shoulder) is expected to be fine to open the season in the starting rotation, according to manager Ron Roenicke. However, that could include moving him back or skipping one of his turns.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers went 6-5 with a 2.13 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and a 9.5 K/9 in 10 starts in 2014. His upside is tangible, and he'll be worth a late-round pick in standard drafts this year with a guaranteed rotation spot in his hands.

Brewers | Mike Fiers could pitch as soon as Sat

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 16:47:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers (shoulder) had a successful bullpen session Thursday, March 19, and he could pitch in a game as soon as Saturday, March 21. The precise plan is to be determined.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers is a solid late-round flier after striking out more than a batter per inning (9.54 K/9) and tallying a 2.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP last season.

Brewers | Mike Fiers scratched from outing

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 10:26:56 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers (shoulder) was scratched from his spring outing with shoulder weakness Thursday, March 19. However, he'll instead throw a bullpen session, so the team isn't too concerned.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers, 29, went 6-5 with a sparkling 2.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 14 games (10 starts) in 2014. He's a sleeper option in the later rounds of mixed leagues with a guaranteed spot in the starting rotation to start the 2015 season. Keep an eye on his shoulder, though.

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 07:00:10 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers struck out a career-high 14 batters in six shutout innings to beat the Chicago Cubs Thursday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers has shown flashes and had 135 K's in 127 2/3 innings two years ago. He should be picked up in all NL-only leagues and is worth a flier in some mixed leagues.

Brewers | Mike Fiers not auditioning

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 13:46:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers' start Saturday, Aug. 9, isn't an audition, as the team already has him lined up to start again against the Chicago Cubs Thursday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: This should make NL-only managers more confident in going out and spending on Fiers for their rotations. Fiers is a top prospect in the organization with high strikeout upside. He could eventually become an option for deep league managers, as well.

Brewers | Mike Fiers to start Saturday

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 15:06:00 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers will be called up from Triple-A Nashville to start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers has appeared in several games in relief for the Brew Crew this year. At Nashville, he went 8-5 with a 2.55 ERA and 129 strikeouts in 102 1/3 innings. The Brewers considered moving Marco Estrada back to the rotation, but he's been much better in relief. Fiers should immediately be an NL-only option, although his first start is a tough one. If he remains in the rotation, he should be considered in deep mixed leagues, too, because of his strikeout upside.
