Brewers demote Mike Fiers to Triple-A

Mike Fiers pitched very well for the Brewers as a 27-year-old rookie last season, throwing 128 innings with a 3.74 ERA and 135/36 K/BB ratio, but that apparently didn’t get him a very long leash this season.

Fiers was quickly bumped from Milwaukee’s rotation following a poor spring training and now the Brewers have demoted him to Triple-A after the right-hander allowed seven runs in 7.1 innings.

Fiers sort of came out of nowhere as a rookie, so it’s not shocking that the Brewers aren’t totally sold on him being for real, but he does have a pretty solid track record in the minors that includes a 2.63 ERA and 118/40 K/BB ratio in 120 innings at Triple-A.
