Fiers lasted just 4.0 innings against the Cardinals on Sunday, but only gave up one earned run on nine hits while striking out six and walking two in his abbreviated outing.

Fiers was victimized by a high pitch count in this one, as he allowed eleven base-runners but was able to escape peril repeatedly via the strikeout. The righty has gotten off to a slow start this season and now has an 0-3 record, a 5.79 ERA, and hasn't made it through six innings in any of his starts. Fiers will look to start building some positive momentum against the Cubs next Saturday.

Fiers fell to 0-3 on the year with a loss to the Reds on Tuesday after he gave up eight runs, four of them earned, in four innings off of two home runs, six hits and three walks.

Fiers has yet to go longer than 5.2 innings in his three starts this season. His outing Tuesday bumped his ERA up to 6.75. In his past two games, he's struck out just eight combined batters but has walked four. His next start is scheduled to be Thursday against the Cardinals.

Fiers (0-2) gave up two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four in 5.2 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals.

After five innings of dueling with opposing starter John Lackey, Fiers frustrated his fantasy owners in leagues that count quality starts by finishing an out short after running into trouble in the sixth. Still, it's a far better effort than Fiers' first time out, and he's looking like he should at least be a playable option. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect a repeat of last year's dominance though.

Fiers is set to make his regular season debut Friday against the Pirates in Milwaukee.

Fiers was not particularly sharp this spring, allowing seven earned runs over 13.1 innings (4.73) and posting a 6:9 K:BB ratio, but the good news is his season debut was not pushed back due to the shoulder soreness he experienced in mid-March. He allowed two hits over seven innings and picked up the win in his lone start against the Pirates last season.

Fiers (shoulder) allowed one earned run over 3.2 innings in Thursday's spring game. He allowed three hits, did not strike out a batter, and walked one.

Fiers was slowed by a sore shoulder of late, but the injury cost him just one spring start, and he made it through Thursday's outing without issue. The setback could force the Brewers to push Fiers back or skip a start of his early in the season, but he is on track to open the campaign as part of the starting rotation.

Manager Ron Roenicke said he believes Fiers (shoulder) will be able to open the season in the rotation, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Fiers was scratched from his start last Thursday with shoulder weakness, but he threw a bullpen session Thursday and appears to be moving past the issue. Roenicke said he should be able to open in the rotation, but he noted that it may require moving him back or skipping a turn to start the year.

Fiers (shoulder) tossed a successful bullpen session Thursday and could pitch in a game as soon as Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Fiers was scratched from his Thursday start due to shoulder discomfort after a Tuesday bullpen session. Instead of the start, he pitched another session in the pen Thursday, and it appears to have gone off without a hitch. If everything goes as planned, he'll pitch again Saturday, and would likely be in line to take his first turn in the rotation at the beginning of the season.

Fiers will not start Thursday's game, as originally expected, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Fiers will be scratched after experiencing some discomfort following his last bullpen session. At this point, it's unknown whether it's anything serious, but the situation is certainly something to monitor as Fiers is expected to open as the Brewers' No. 4 starter. Tyler Thornburg will get the start in Fiers' place Thursday.

Fiers is slated to open the regular season as the Brewers' No. 4 starter, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Fiers did not even break camp with the Brewers last season, but a dominant Triple-A performance, followed by an equally impressive showing at the major league level, helped him solidify a spot in the big league rotation. Fiers remains something of a question mark because he lacks dominant stuff, but there is plenty to like, mainly his 228:62 K:BB ratio and 1.18 WHIP -- including a 0.88 mark last season -- in 223.2 big league innings.

Fiers allowed three earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out seven in six innings in the Brewers' 5-2 loss to the Cubs.

He got the loss in the start. It is the most runs he's suffered in a start all season. He had allowed 13 runs in 58.2 innings as a starter. The six hits were also the highest since Sept. 5. He won't like that he ended his season with three straight losses, but he still had a 6-5 record.
