Fiers pleased with performance, but must prove self again next spring

MILWAUKEE -- When Mike Fiers reported to Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix for spring training last February, his career was hanging in the balance. Fiers was so much of a forgotten man in the organization that he pitched just two innings for the Milwaukee Brewers in spring training before he was assigned to minor-league camp in early March. Emotionally and physically, Fiers had...

Brewers Tuesday: Milwaukee shifts Nelson to bullpen

MILWAUKEE -- After using a six-man rotation for one turn, the Milwaukee Brewers will drop back to the conventional five-man starting staff.

Roenicke: Brewers starters 'not pitching as well as they should be'

MILWAUKEE -- There are many reasons why the Milwaukee Brewers are suddenly collapsing with the postseason right around the corner, but a one-time strength of the ball club is near the top of the list. The starting rotation that helped propel the Brewers to their quick start to the season suddenly can't get the job done. Milwaukee's starting pitchers are 1-11 with a 6.95 ERA during...

Led by Ross, Padres slide past Brewers

Having already faced off against four former Cy Young Award winners in his first eight starts of the season, Jimmy Nelson already knows a thing or two about pitching opposite of the best baseball has to offer. That means he also understands how small the margin for error is against certain pitchers. Give San Diego ace Tyson Ross any kind of run support and he usually wins. Such was...

One Man’s Trash: Starting Fiers

This week's hot add was Mike Fiers (+62%). The Brewers hurler has posted a 9.5 K/9 and a 1.8 BB/9 since filling in for Matt Garza in the Milwaukee rotation. The strikeouts are no fluke, as he posted a K/9 of 11.4 in Triple-A this season. While his FIP is a run higher than his current ERA and Steamer is projecting a 3.60 ERA from this point forward, Fiers remains a great pickup for...
