Mike Fiers SP MIL 1 Day

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.

Fiers gave up two runs on four hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings Tuesday against the Reds.

The five innings matched his season-low for innings pitched, and both runs were surrendered on solo home runs to Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco. Even after failing to log a quality start Tuesday, Fiers ERA still sits at a sterling 1.92, and he has given fantasy owners far more than they could have ever hope for since joining the rotation. He will take the ball in the Brewers' final game of the season Sunday against the Cubs.

Fiers took the loss Wednesday after allowing one run on three hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over seven innings against the Cardinals.

In a lot of ways Fiers out-pitched Adam Wainwright, who threw a shutout against the Brewers. The right-hander allowed only five baserunners and had a no-hitter going through six innings, but a walk, a single and a Carlos Gomez error was all it took to lose a close ballgame. Fiers will take the mound Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Fiers tossed five scoreless innings against Miami on Thursday, scattering three hits with eight strikeouts.

Fiers hit Giancarlo Stanton in the face during the fifth inning, and was visibly shaken up, in what was a scary scene. Even though Fiers was performing well, and at a pitch count of just 82, Milwaukee must have felt he was too worked up to continue. The funky-throwing Fiers has been brilliant since joining the rotation in early August, entering Thursday's start with a 5-1 record and 46:7 K:BB ratio in 41.2 innings. We've seen a stretch like this from him before in 2012, so it's not completely out of the ordinary. In any event, hopefully he can put the Stanton situation behind him, and keep rolling in his only start next week at St. Louis.

Fiers (5-2) picked up the win against the Cardinals on Friday as he pitched 6.2 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits while notching five strikeouts.

Since being moved to the rotation on August 9, Fiers has been simply dominant. Along with his five wins, Fiers has struck out 46 hitters in 41.2 innings pitched while running an impressive 2.03 ERA. More importantly, Fiers snapped a nine-game losing streak by the Brewers.
