Astros | Mike Fiers follows up no-no nicely

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:43:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out five batters during the Astros' 4-1 win over the Minnesota Twins Saturday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Over his four starts with Houston, Fiers ($7,800 15.6% of cap) owns a 0.67 ERA with 24 punchouts over 27 innings, including his no-hitter Friday, Aug. 21. Fiers is worth owning in all seasonal formats at this point, and he is a matchup play at FantasyScore. Just keep your expectations in check because he has been inconsistent in the past and is likely pitching a touch over his head of late.

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 21:02:05 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers threw a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, Aug. 21, striking out 10 and walking three.

Fantasy Tip: After a rocky debut with the Astros, Fiers ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has been stellar in three straight starts, allowing one earned run over 21 innings. He is a great play at his current price tag at FantasyScore.

Astros | Mike Fiers to start Sunday

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 08:15:09 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers will start Sunday, Aug. 9, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) was knocked around in relief Monday but has a decent matchup. He's worth SP2 consideration on FantasyScore.

Astros | Mike Fiers used in relief

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 21:02:28 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers was used in relief Monday, Aug. 3, against the Texas Rangers after SP Lance McCullers bombed out. Fiers will obviously not make his scheduled start Tuesday, Aug. 4. The team will recall SP Dan Straily to start the game.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is a decent FantasyScore option for his K/9 (strikeouts to nine innings) ratio, but he was needed in relief so he likely won't work again until the weekend.

Astros | Mike Fiers could pitch in relief

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:27:54 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers could serve as a starting pitcher or as a reliever for his new team.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, Fiers ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) would lose practically all of his fantasy value if he pitches out of Houston's bullpen. This could be a fluid situation, though, because the Astros could also look to limit the innings of Lance McCullers and Vincent Velasquez down the stretch.

Brewers | Milwaukee deals Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:56:11 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers dealt OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers to the Houston Astros Thursday, July 30, and received prospects OF Brett Phillips, P Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana and P Adrian Houser.

Fantasy Tip: Khris Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should start every day in the outfield, and he'll be worth grabbing in deeper mixed leagues, and he can be used against right-handed pitching on FantasyScore. Wily Peralta ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will move into Fiers' rotation spot, he allowed just two earned runs over six innings in his return from the disabled list, and he can be used depending on his matchup.

Astros | Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers going to Houston

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:41:27 -0700

The Houston Astros acquired OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers from the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 30. OF Brett Phillips, P Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana and P Adrian Houser go to Milwaukee.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) fantasy value will take a slight hit, as he goes from the park with the second highest runs per game to the park with the 19th highest average, but he does join a more potent offense. OFs Jake Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Preston Tucker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will lose playing time and fantasy value. Fiers ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will receive a slight boost, as he moves to a more pitcher-friendly ballpark. Lance McCullers ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) may be bumped from the starting rotation.

Blue Jays | Toronto looking for starting pitching

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:56:45 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo, Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, San Diego Padres SPs Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross, Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers, Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren and Detroit Tigers SP David Price are all on the radar of the Toronto Blue Jays as the trade deadline approaches.

Fantasy Tip: All of these names would be significant upgrades to the Blue Jays' current staff. However, for some, a move to hitter-friendly Toronto would be a downgrade to their fantasy value.

Blue Jays | TOR scouting wide variety of pitchers

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:43:44 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are looking at several pitchers in their quest to land a starter, according to baseball sources. Pitchers mentioned include Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija, Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco, Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers, San Diego Padres SP's Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are trying long and hard to improve their starting pitching, and other pitchers like Mat Latos and Dan Haren are also on this list. The odds of the Blue Jays landing one of these starters might be quite nice, thanks to how wide the net is.

Blue Jays | Toronto interested in Mike Fiers

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:02:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers is a player the Toronto Blue Jays have pursued in a trade but nothing is close at this point, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are believed to be looking for a starting pitcher before the trade deadline, so the interest in Fiers ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is understandable. Fiers has a 3.79 ERA and 106 strikeouts in 107 innings and is a good option on FantasyScore against certain opponents.
