RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Acquired by the Astros with Carlos Gomez at the trade deadline, Fiers pitched well for his new club after a rough start to the season with Milwaukee. The 30-year-old right-hander went beyond the sixth inning just once in his first 12 starts, as a lack of velocity (89.4 mph) often forced him to nibble around the strike zone, which often led to high pitch counts. Despite his early struggles, Fiers logged a career-high 180.1 innings in 31 appearances (30 starts) between the Astros and Brewers, going 7-10 with a 3.69 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. He did allow 24 home runs on the season for a terrible 1.2 HR/9, but he still struck out nearly a batter per inning and owned a 3.32 ERA and 1.06 WHIP after arriving in Houston. Fiers is projected as the Astros' fourth starter to open 2016.

2015

A trying 2013 season landed Fiers at Triple-A Nashville to open the 2014 season, and he made all of four appearances for the Brewers before August. However, that was due to the depth of the rotation at the big league level, as Fiers was brilliant with Nashville. He sustained that success when he was called up to Milwaukee, and did not give up more than three earned runs in any of his 10 major league starts. Fiers does not have a big fastball, but he has struck out over a batter per inning and owns a 1.18 WHIP over his big league career. Thanks to his impressive 2014 campaign, consider Fiers the front-runner for the Brewers’ fifth starter job.

2014

Fiers burst onto the scene in 2012, posting a 1.80 ERA over his first 13 games (12 starts), but he faltered late that year, and his struggles carried over to 2013. Fiers won the fifth starter job during spring training, but was removed from the rotation after just one appearance, sent to the minors, and briefly recalled before being sent down again in June. When it was all said and done, Fiers ended up giving up 18 earned runs over 22.1 innings with the Brewers and saw his season come to an early end after breaking his arm in June. Fiers was effective at first thanks to a deceptive delivery, but he does not possess a formidable arsenal, and it’s highly unlikely he will regain the form that led to his initial success in 2012.

2013

Fiers was the Brewers' Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2011, but few expected him to throw the ball as well as he did in his first stint in the majors. Fiers tired late in the season and finished with a 3.74 ERA, but he also posted a 135:36 K:BB ratio over 127.2 innings and held the opposition to two earned runs or fewer in 12 of his 22 starts. Although he pitched well in his first exposure to big league hitters, he will need to earn his place in the rotation by pitching well again in spring training, and it is unclear if the Brewers would consider him for long relief if he fails to lock down a starting gig in Arizona this spring.

2012

Fiers started last season at Double-A Huntsville and ended in Milwaukee. He doesn't throw hard, but has a funky delivery that helped him strikeout more than a batter per inning in 2011. Fiers has an outside chance at a rotation spot in 2012, but could also stick as a long reliever in the bullpen thanks to a four-pitch arsenal and low walk rate. In many ways, his role and upside could parallel that of Arizona's Josh Collmenter.
