Fiers earned a no-decision Tuesday against the White Sox, allowing five hits and two runs while striking out seven in 6.1 innings.

This was a good outing for Fiers, but he didn't get enough run support to earn the win. His season has been rough, walking 3.75 batters per nine innings and posting a 3.98 FIP. He'll try to pick up his second win of the season Monday against the Tigers.

Fiers (1-4) allowed five runs on five hits and five walks in five innings Thursday in a loss to the Dodgers. He struck out eight and hit a batter.

Fiers hs been piling up strikeouts this year, with a whopping 42 of them in just 29.2 innings. However, he's also walking too many guys and giving up a lot of hard contact. The bright side is that his .408 BABIP can't help but drop, and his 18.8 percent HR/FB rate is quite high as well. But Fiers has always been an odd sort of pitcher whose surface numbers and peripherals never seem to match up, making him one of fantasy's more enigmatic arms.

Fiers won his first game of the season in impressive fashion Saturday, allowing just one run on three hits and two walks over six innings while striking out 12.

His ERA still stands at 4.74, but Fiers' 34:9 K:BB ratio in 24.2 innings suggests that much better days are ahead. He'll try to keep his momentum going in his next start at home against the Dodgers.

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.
