Mike Fiers was underwhelming on Tuesday, working for 5 innings, allowing three hits and three earned runs while issuing four walks and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Fiers struggled with his command against the Reds. Some of his walks were of the four pitch variety. Fiers still has a great upside for strikeouts, and is in line to pitch towards the back of Milwaukee's rotation. Keep an eye on his command in his next (and final) spring training start.

Fiers made his first Cactus League appearance since March 13 and allowed one run on three hits and a walk in 3 2/3 innings. Fiers was scratched from his previous start with right shoulder fatigue.

Fantasy Impact: Fiers is a potential breakout candidate this season. His average draft position is 190 with an average auction value of $7. He posted 76 strikeouts in 71 innings last season and many hope for similar ratios over the course of a full 2015 if he can stay healthy.

Mike Fiers returned to the mound on Thursday after missing his last start due to shoulder weakness. He allowed three hits and one run without striking out a batter.

Fantasy Impact: While it was nice to see Fiers return to the mound, at least one strikeout would have been nice. Still, its nice to see Mike return and face 14 after missing his last turn in the rotation. Keep an eye on Fiers and his effectiveness the rest of the spring.

After missing his last start with shoulder weakness, Fiers threw 3-1/3 innings and a total of 46 pitches in a Minor League game Sunday. Fiers will throw again Thursday in either a Major or Minor League game to keep him on pace to be ready for the start of the season. (Source: Brewers.com)

Fantasy Impact: Fiers only started 10 games in 2014 but posted good numbers when he did. He posted a 6-5 record with 76 strikeouts in 71 innings and could be a key component of the Brewers staff if he stays healthy. Currently, his average draft position is 190.

 

Fiers lasted just two innings Friday in a spring training start against the Mariners. He threw a total of 59 pitches, only 29 were for strikes and allowed five hits, four runs and three walks as his spring ERA rose to 5.79.

Fantasy Impact: Fiers spot in the Brewers rotation is safe, and he likely isn't going to be the ace of anyone's fantasy staff. Let's just hope that he works out the kinks before the games count for real. At best Fiers is a depth rotation guy in your lineup that you use when the matchups favor the Brewers.

Fiers went 2.2 innings striking out three Sunday against the Dodgers. Fiers gave up just one hit and one walk along with an unearned run in the third inning.

Fantasy Impact: In 2014 Fiers went 6-5 with a 2.13 ERA with 76 strikeouts in 71.2 innings pitched. Fiers will be a good under the radar draft candidate and post good strikeout numbers along with a good ERA and WHIP. You should be able to steal him in the mid to late rounds, currently his average draft position is 190 on FantasyPros.

Fantasy Impact: Fiers went 6-5 with a 2.13 ERA in 14 games for the Brewers in 2014. He also had 76 strikeouts in 71.2 innings pitched posting a 0.88 WHIP. Fiers was the Brewers best starter during the second half of the season and is a good sleeper candidate to draft in the later rounds and especially in NL-only leagues.
