Mike Fiers P MIL 1 Month

Brewers optioned RHP Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville.

The 28-year-old right-hander was brutal in his time with the Brewers in 2014, and wasn't any better in limited work this spring with a 9.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in his two innings. He's merely organizational fodder for the Brewers at this point.

Mike Fiers gave up two runs in an inning as the Brewers fell to the Cubs 4-2 on Monday.

After allowing back-to-back singles to lead off the seventh, Fiers appeared to be on his way to dancing out of the inning, getting consecutive strikeouts. But a walk followed by a single broke the tie, giving the Cubs the 4-2 lead. Fiers is trying to rebound after a rough 2013 in which he finished with a 7.25 ERA and suffered a broken forearm.

Michael Fiers will be sidelined for the next 9-12 weeks after a comebacker during Saturday's start at Triple-A Nashville broke his right forearm.

That means the best Fiers can probably hope for is returning to the major league club after rosters expand. It's been a rough year for the right-hander, as he was quickly booted from the Brewers' rotation and holds a 7.25 ERA over 11 appearances in his time with the big club.

Brewers optioned RHP Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville.

Mike Fiers will start Sunday against the Phillies.

Mike Fiers allowed four runs -- including three home runs -- in four innings in the loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

It was only Fiers' second start of the year and first since April 6, and you can see why. Fiers allowed homers to Andrew McCutchen, Pedro Alvarez and Neil Walker in his four innings, and the right-hander now has a 6.62 ERA on the year. Fiers' spot in the rotation -- although not necessarily Fiers -- will come up again Thursday against the Twins.

Brewers recalled RHP Mike Fiers from High-A Brevard County.

Tom Gorzelanny was placed on the disabled list Saturday, so the Brewers needed another reliever. Through his first three appearances (two in relief, one as a starter) with Milwaukee this season, Fiers owns an 8.59 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 1/2 K/BB ratio over 7 1/3 innings. He will carry no fantasy relevance no matter his role.

Mike Fiers has been transferred from Triple-A Nashville to High-A Brevard County so that he can attend to a personal situation closer to his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Fiers was demoted last month, but he posted a 1.59 ERA and 17/9 K/BB ratio in 17 innings over three starts in Triple-A. The Brewers were happy to accommodate his request, but are hopeful that he'll be able to return to Nashville before long.

Brewers optioned RHP Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville.

Not unexpected, as Fiers struggled in his lone start on April 6 and was already scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday. He'll try to work through his mechanical issues in the minors. It's not clear who will replace him in the rotation, but Tyler Thornburg and Hiram Burgos are among the internal options.

Michael Fiers might not make his scheduled start on Saturday.

After a poor spring training, Fiers was knocked around for six runs over five innings in his lone start this season, and the Brewers aren't sure they want to give him another one. It's possible he'll get another shot, but the club won't hesitate to use him in relief before then if needed. "It will come down to what happens in some of these games," manager Ron Roenicke said. "If Fiers gets in them, or we think Fiers is needed to be our long guy in the bullpen, then we'll try to go grab somebody else. But it's going to come down, probably, to a couple of days before that start." Tyler Thornburg and Hiram Burgos are options to replace Fiers.
