Fiers took a no decision in a quality start Tuesday against the Mets. He allowed two runs on four hits and two walks over six innings with seven strikeouts.

This was the Fiers who posted the 2.13 ERA in 2014. Mets hitters were off balance all night, as they hit seven ground balls and swung and missed 12 times against Fiers. Fiers has three quality starts in his past five outings, but with a fastball that struggles to touch 90 MPH, he's prone to blowups.

Fiers (3-7) gave up six runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Royals.

His typical strikeouts weren't even there -- just two this time. Fiers is one of the strangest pitchers in the major leagues, as he generally posts a sky-high strikeout rate despite a fastball that averages less than 90 mph, yet achieves mixed results in terms of runs on the board. It seems he's due for some better luck, but fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited over Fiers; last year's 2.13 ERA was an aberration. He draws the Mets on Tuesday.

Fiers improved to 3-6 against Washington on Friday, as he allowed three runs on five hits and three walks over seven innings.

The Milwaukee offense gifted Fiers eight runs of support as he worked through seven innings in exactly 100 pitches. Fiers struck out eight Nationals on Friday, raising his strikeout rate to a robust 10.43 per nine innings. The righty can miss bats at an elite rate, and could prove to be a valuable fantasy commodity if his unlucky .365 BABIP against keeps dropping and the Brewers keep scoring. His next start falls at Kansas City on Wednesday.

Fiers was handed his sixth loss of the season Sunday as he allowed two runs on seven hits and three walks over just 4.1 innings against the Twins.

The 29-year-old simply didn't have it this time, as he toiled through 91 pitches in the abbreviated outing and struck out just three batters. Fiers has still not allowed more then two runs since May 12, however, and will look to get back on track Friday against the Nationals.

Fiers pitched six scoreless innings in Monday's victory over the Cardinals and picked up his second win of the season. He allowed just four hits and posted a 6:2 K:BB ratio in the game.

Fiers' ERA sat at 6.75 after his first three starts of the season, but he has lowered that mark to 4.06 by giving up two earned runs or fewer in seven of his last eight outings. Fiers is averaging just over five innings per start this season, but he is still racking up plenty of strikeouts -- his 69 Ks ties him for 10th in the NL.

Fiers will have his start moved up to Monday's game against the Cardinals after Matt Garza was used in Sunday's extra-innings affair, ESPN reports.

Fiers will be a two-start pitcher this week with the news that he is starting Monday's game. Deep-league players looking to stream in a two-start pitcher have an extra arm to consider using.

Fiers, pitching on short rest, tossed five innings in the Brewers' loss to the Giants on Wednesday. He allowed two earned runs on eight hits and posted a 6:0 K:BB ratio in the game.

Fiers fell to 1-5 Wednesday, but he also gave up two earned runs or fewer for the sixth time in seven starts. Like his record, Fiers' 4.53 ERA and 1.55 WHIP aren't great either, but his eight strikeouts in Wednesday's game give him 63 on the season and have him placed in the Top 10 among National League starters.

Fiers will go on three days of rest Wednesday for the third time in his career. He has given up two earned runs or fewer in five of his last six starts, but he will face a tough test Wednesday against a surging Giants team.

Fiers got a no-decision on Saturday, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings, striking out five.

While his 57:17 K:BB ratio in 41.2 IP is strong, his longest outing on the year is just 6.1 innings, and unless Fiers learns to work deeper into games he'll have a hard time improving on his 1-4 record. He'll next take the hill on Friday, at home to the Diamondbacks.
