    May 22, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Milwaukee Brewers

    Kyle Lohse has been scratched from his next scheduled start with what the Brewers are calling elbow irritation. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Mike Fiers will fill in for Lohse against the Pirates on Saturday. Lohse has an ugly 1-5 record since signing a three-year, $33 million deal with the Brewers late in spring…

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    The Brewers have placed lefty Tom Gorzelanny on the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis, per MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy. They have recalled right-hander Mike Fiers. Gorzelanny posted a 2.30 ERA in 15.2 innings out of the bullpen. Fiers, meanwhile, allowed six runs in five innings in his only start on April 6 and allowed one run…

  3. Brewers demote Mike Fiers to Triple-A

    Apr 18, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Colorado Rockies

    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…

    After signing Kyle Lohse to a three-year, $33 million deal earlier this week, the Brewers suddenly have more starting pitchers than rotation spots. While early indications were that Mike Fiers would be the odd man out, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Chris Narveson will begin the season in the bullpen. Narveson is coming off…

  5. Mike Fiers expected to lose rotation spot to Kyle Lohse

    Mar 29, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Colorado Rockies

    There’s no official word yet on who the Brewers will bump from the starting rotation to make room for Kyle Lohse, but Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that it’s expected to be right-hander Mike Fiers. That speaks pretty highly of the Brewers’ rotation depth because Fiers was damn good as a 27-year-old…

    Assuming all continues to go well with Chad Billingsley‘s elbow, the Dodgers figure to explore possible trades for Aaron Harang and Chris Capuano, who both project to begin the season in the bullpen. With that in mind, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Brewers and Orioles had scouts in attendance today as Harang threw…

    According to the Associated Press, Chris Narveson has avoided arbitration with the Brewers by agreeing to a one-year, $840,000 contract. Narveson, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, made just two starts last season prior to undergoing surgery in May to repair his labrum and rotator cuff. The 31-year-old southpaw is expected to…

  9. Chris Narveson expected to be recovered from shoulder surgery by spring training

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Chris Narveson, who underwent season-ending shoulder surgery two starts into 2012, “is expected to be back to 100 percent well before the start of spring training,” according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. However, as it stands now he wouldn’t be assured of a spot in the Brewers’ rotation with Yovani Gallardo, Marco Estrada, Mike Fiers,…

  10. Reds skipping Mike Leake’s turn in rotation to keep Johnny Cueto on normal rest

    Sep 24, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Cincinnati Reds

    Mike Leake has mostly struggled since throwing a one-run complete game against the Mets on August 15, allowing 24 runs and nine homers in 32 innings, and the Reds have announced plans to skip his next turn in the rotation. Leake was slated to pitch Tuesday, but instead Johnny Cueto make that start against the…

  11. Coors Field is stronger than Mike Fiers’ deal with the devil

    Aug 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Colorado Rockies

    The fact that it occurred at Coors Field complicates things a bit, but Brewers rookie Mike Fiers finally came back down to earth last night after an incredible start to his career. Fiers came into last night with a 1.80 ERA and 80/16 K/BB ratio in 80 innings … and then failed to make it…

    New York Yankees' Derek Lowe pitches to Texas Rangers during their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

  13. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 8, 2012, 6:14 AM EDT

    Rockford Files

    Tigers 6, Yankees 5: Miguel Cabrera homered for the third straight game. The dude is good. The Tigers have won six straight and, with the White Sox loss, pull to within a half game. Speaking of the Tigers, I found out last night that one of the people I hung out with at Comerica Park…

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…
