Brewers | Mike Fiers suffers broken arm Saturday

Sun, 16 Jun 2013 11:43:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers minor league SP Mike Fiers (arm), currently playing for Triple-A Nashville, suffered a broken right arm after he was struck on the forearm by a line drive off the bat of Kevin Kouzmanoff Saturday, June 15. He is expected to be sidelined for nine to 12 weeks.

Brewers | Marco Estrada to DL

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 09:58:23 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Marco Estrada (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. The club has recalled P Tyler Thornburg from Triple-A Nashville to take Estrada's place on the roster. Writer Tom Haudricourt speculates that Thornburg was probably called up to take Estrada's next turn, which comes on Saturday, June 8, against the Philadelphia Phillies, unless Milwaukee needs him out of the bullpen beforehand.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how long Estrada will be sidelined, but it could be more than the minimum based on previous reports. Thornburg is an interesting prospect, but as Haudricourt notes, he's not had a good season for the Sounds, so fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach. The Brewers could end up recalling and going with Mike Fiers, who has also disappointed this season.

Brewers | More on Kyle Lohse

Wed, 22 May 2013 10:17:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse (elbow) is missing his start on Saturday, May 25, because of irritation in his right elbow. He began experiencing discomfort in the joint "two or three starts ago," according to manager Ron Roenicke. Lohse is tentatively scheduled to return to the rotation for one of the team's games against the Minnesota Twins next week.

Roenicke indicated that the club's choice to skip Lohse is precautionary, because he didn't go through spring training. The manager said he hopes it's not a big deal, because Lohse didn't seem too concerned. Any time an elbow issue pops up for a pitcher, of course it'll cause worry.

Fantasy Tip: This sounds as if it will turn out to be nothing major, but fantasy owners won't get a better idea until there's an update following whatever side work Lohse does or treatment he has. Missing spring training alone isn't a reason to skip a start, so it calls into question Milwaukee's decision-making just a little. Mike Fiers, who's scheduled to take Lohse's turn on Saturday, may stick around longer if the problem is more serious than hoped.

Brewers | Kyle Lohse to miss start

Wed, 22 May 2013 08:40:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse (elbow) has right elbow irritation and will miss his next start. P Mike Fiers will make the start.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully, one missed start, and perhaps a cortisone injection will do the trick for Lohse. Lohse is 1-5 with a 3.76 ERA and has a string of bad luck, stemming back to his struggles with free agency. Fiers had a good stretch of starts last season and showed promise. He's worth a pickup in NL-only leagues.

Brewers | Mike Fiers might not start Saturday

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 18:54:14 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers need a fifth starter Saturday, April 20, against the Chicago Cubs, for the first time in two weeks. They have not yet named a probable pitcher, as SP Mike Fiers struggled in his first appearance April 6. It might be Fiers Saturday, manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday, April 16, or it could be a Triple-A call-up.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers put up solid numbers last season when given the chance, but he cannot be trusted in anything but the deepest of NL-only fantasy if he is tabbed for the start. Hiram Burgos and Tyler Thornburg are options from the minors.

Brewers | Mike Fiers makes rotation

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 16:03:53 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers announced that SP Mike Fiers has made the rotation, and SP Chris Narveson (shoulder) will begin in the bullpen. There is concern with Narveson's surgically repaired left shoulder, although manager Ron Roenicke said he is fine. "We want to back off him a little bit," Roenicke said. "He's OK, but he's really been pushing through this thing in spring training, through the surgery. In the long run, it's probably going to help him out to limit his innings at the start." Narveson went 1-2 with a 5.50 ERA in five starts and 18 spring innings while striking out 10 and walking six. Narveson will piggyback SP Kyle Lohse in Lohse's first start of the regular season, which will likely come in the second series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers has promise even though he ran out of gas at the tail end of last season. He can neutralize left-handed sticks and is worth consideration in deep enough mixed leagues to round out your pitching staff.

Brewers | Mike Fiers likely headed to pen

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 07:15:06 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers is likely to begin the season in the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: That means Wily Peralta likely has the last spot in the rotation and Fiers' fantasy value plummets. He had a nice season last year, but he'll have to wait for an injury to rekindle much of it this year.
