Athletics' Mike Fiers: Feels ready for regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers, who allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk across five innings in a Cactus League loss to the Royals on Tuesday, feels sufficiently tuned up at this point in spring, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "I feel good at this point," Fiers said. "I could start the season in my next start and feel like I would be fine."

The veteran right-hander allowed a solo home run to Nicky Lopez on his third pitch, but he was largely effective the rest of the way while working up to 74 pitches, 57 of which found the strike zone. Gallegos reports Fiers was particularly consistent in getting ahead of hitters, throwing first-pitch strikes to 16 of 22 batters. Fiers will likely work up to approximately 90 pitches in a start versus the Padres on Sunday, and he remains in contention with Frankie Montas for an Opening Day start. "A lot of strikes with all his pitches and that's what you want to see right now," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "He's getting a better feel at this point in time. He threw his curveball for a strike, his cutter, his changeup. Pretty similar to his last time out."

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Dominates in latest start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers fired four shutout innings in a Cactus League win over the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing one hit and no walks while recording four strikeouts.

Fiers gave up only a second-inning single during the stellar outing, one in which Chris Haft of MLB.com reports the veteran right-hander reached his target of 60 pitches. He earned praise from manager Bob Melvin for how effective he was with his entire four-pitch arsenal. The strong showing was a welcome sight for Fiers, who'd allowed five earned runs on four hits and three walks across two innings in his previous Cactus League start against the Reds on Saturday.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Makes wild-card squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers was included on the roster for Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game against the Rays, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

The right-hander has struggled over five starts in September, recording a 7.84 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 20.2 innings pitched. Despite the recent struggles, Fiers will be available on four days' rest against the Rays' lineup filled with left-handers. Sean Manaea will receive the start for the Athletics, but Fiers will be available out of the bullpen if Manaea struggles.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Goes five innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday night.

This was another step forward for Fiers after a brutal stretch from mid-August to mid-September in which he gave up 12 homers in 24.1 innings. In his final two regular-season starts, Fiers allowed two runs on six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over 13 innings. Overall, he ranks top 10 among qualified American League starters in wins, innings, ERA and WHIP, but it probably won't be enough to get him the start in the Wild Card Game over lefty Sean Manaea.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Dominant over eight innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (15-4) allowed only two hits over eight scoreless innings Friday, striking out five and earning the win in an 8-0 victory over the Rangers.

Fiers' durability was in question after he left his previous start with nerve irritation in his arm, but it didn't seem to bother the right-hander in this start. Fiers threw 65 of his 95 pitches for strikes and erased the only two hits he allowed with a double play and a pickoff. Prior to Friday, the 34-year-old had allowed 16 runs over his previous 7.2 innings. Fiers has a 3.91 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 122 strikeouts in 179.2 innings this season. He lines up to face the Mariners on Thursday for what is likely his final start of the year.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Next start possibly abbreviated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (arm) is slated to make his next start Friday against the Rangers, but he may be on a lower pitch count than normal due to Jesus Luzardo's availability out of the bullpen, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Fiers' clean MRI on Wednesday cemented his availability for Friday's turn, a start that had been in question after nerve irritation in his throwing arm led to his early exit last Saturday versus the Rangers. However, this latest report lends credence to the notion Fiers will still be on a pitch count, albeit for reasons unrelated to his arm issue. With Luzardo conditioned to work multiple innings, Fiers may be set to log five or fewer frames by design against Texas.

September 18, 2019 03:24 PM
Athletics' Mike Fiers: MRI clean, next start set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (arm) relayed Wednesday that his recent MRI came back clean and that he's set to make his next scheduled start Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The news has steadily been trending up throughout the week with respect to Fiers, and Tuesday's successful 35-pitch bullpen session offered some tangible evidence that the nerve irritation which had forced him from Saturday's start had significantly subsided. However, a clean MRI offers yet another layer of assurance that the right-hander's issues may have only been temporary. Fiers therefore lines up to take his scheduled turn against the Rangers on Friday.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Should start this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (arm) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and should be able to start this weekend against the Rangers, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

It sounds like the bullpen session was a success. He will presumably start Saturday or Sunday. Fiers has a 9.33 ERA and 2.24 WHIP in 18.1 innings over his last five outings.

September 16, 2019 09:40 PM
Athletics' Mike Fiers: Slated for Tuesday bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (arm) expects to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Fiers has yet to undergo an MRI after leaving his last outing with nerve irritation in his right arm, but the right-hander is optimistic about tossing a side session after he undergoes further testing Tuesday. He did note that his visit to the team doctor went well, which is a positive sign. If Fiers is able to throw a bullpen, he'd be on track to make his next start, which figures to come Saturday against Texas.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Expected to make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bob Melvin said Sunday that he expects Fiers (arm) to make his upcoming start during next weekend's home series with the Rangers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Fiers exited his start Saturday in Texas with nerve irritation in his right arm, but the Athletics' initial examinations of the 34-year-old apparently didn't reveal anything too concerning. He'll be sent in for further evaluation Monday when the Athletics return to Oakland, but the prevailing belief is that he's just dealing with a minor stinger and will be able to make his next turn through the rotation. Thanks to an off day Thursday, the Athletics -- who already have a six-man rotation in place -- would have sufficient coverage if Fiers is forced to miss a turn.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Status uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers' (arm) next start is up in the air, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Fiers left his start Saturday against the Rangers in the second inning with arm nerve irritation, though the Athletics have stated it's possible he doesn't miss any time. Oakland has been using a six-man rotation, though, so they could simply skip his next turn and drop to a standard five-man rotation for a brief period. The injury could also create a starting opportunity for Jesus Luzardo, who pitched in relief in his only big-league appearance to date.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Dealing with nerve irritation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers left Saturday's game against the Rangers with right arm nerve irritation, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Fiers saw his fastball velocity drop by five mph in the second inning of his start before being forced to leave the game. It's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Exits early with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers left his start Saturday against the Rangers with an apparent arm injury, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Manager Bob Melvin and a team trainer came out to check on Fiers' forearm early in the second inning, though he stayed in the game initially. That proved to be an unwise decision, as he gave up a homer and a walk to the next two batters before leaving the game. His velocity dipped by up to five mph before he was forced to exit. The veteran wound up allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in just 1.2 innings, his second consecutive start where he failed to get out of the second inning. The nature and severity of his injury are not yet clear.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Crushed for nine runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (14-4) gave up nine runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out one through one inning to take the loss against the Astros on Monday.

Fiers gave up three home runs in the first inning and allowed two more long balls before being pulled without recording an out in the second frame. The right-hander has a 3.97 ERA with 116 strikeouts through 30 starts this season. Fiers is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: No-decision against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers didn't factor into the decision against the Angels on Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits over five innings, striking out four and walking two as the Athletics eventually prevailed 7-5.

Fiers pitched reasonably well, but a pair of solo home runs he yielded to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols would account for half the damage against him and leave him with a lackluster final stat line. Still, the 34-year-old is in the midst of a solid season, as he's sporting a 3.48 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 112:47 K:BB over 163 innings. The right-hander will draw a tough matchup for his next start, as he'll take on the Astros on the road Monday.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Start pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers will make his next start Tuesday against the Angels, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Sean Manaea (shoulder) is slated to come off the injured list to start Sunday's series finale against the Yankees, which will afford Fiers an extra two days of rest thanks to Monday's off day. The right-hander owns a 2.53 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 41:18 K:BB across nine second-half starts (57 innings).

August 28, 2019 07:36 AM
Athletics' Mike Fiers: Wins 11th straight decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (13-3) picked up the win Tuesday, giving up one run on eight hits and two walks over 5.1 innings while striking out five in a 2-1 victory over the Royals.

The right-hander found himself in an unlikely pitchers' duel with Mike Montgomery, blanking Kansas City through five innings, but after the Royals finally broke through for a run in the sixth Fiers got the hook. Incredibly, he's now won 11 straight decisions and hasn't taken a loss since May 1, but that streak will be put to the test when Fiers carries a 3.40 ERA and 111:48 K:BB through 164 innings into his next start Sunday, on the road against the Yankees.

August 22, 2019 08:28 PM
Athletics' Mike Fiers: Bags 12th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (12-3) picked up the win against the Yankees on Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on six hits over 5.1 innings, striking out four and walking three as the Athletics won 6-4.

The right-hander got knocked around for five earned runs by the Astros in his last start, but he bounced back with a solid outing in this contest. Fiers missed a quality start by two outs and eventually picking up his 12th win of the season. He doesn't rack up lofty strikeout numbers, as he's fanned 103 batters in 152.2 innings, but Fiers is posting solid ratios for Oakland while generating a 3.42 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. He'll take the mound next on the road against the Royals early next week.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Posts no-decision against Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers took a no-decision in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Astros, allowing five runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three over six innings.

It was somewhat of a home run derby at Oakland Coliseum, as Fiers and opposing starter Aaron Sanchez gave up four home runs apiece. In fact, all five of Fiers' runs allowed came via long balls, starting with a two-run shot by Alex Bregman in the fourth inning. It was the most runs yielded by Fiers since April 20, when he allowed six runs in each of three consecutive starts. Otherwise, the 34-year-old has been phenomenal, piecing together one of his best campaigns to date with a 3.46 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 99:40 K:BB. He'll have his work cut out for him during a home showdown with the Yankees on Wednesday.

August 10, 2019 08:24 AM
Athletics' Mike Fiers: Completes seven shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (11-3) tossed seven scoreless innings with eight strikeouts, zero walks and three hits allowed in a win over the White Sox on Friday.

The 34-year-old yielded six runs in three straight starts in April, and ever since then, he's been absolutely terrific. Fiers hasn't yielded more than three runs in any start since Apr. 20, and in 11 of his last 12 outings, he's allowed two runs or fewer, posting a 1.76 ERA. With this success, Fiers has dropped his season ERA to 3.25. He also has a 1.10 WHIP, .227 batting average against, and 96 strikeouts in 141.1 innings this year. Fiers will take the hill again Thursday at home against the Astros.
