Sounds’ Mike Fiers making most of opportunity

Sounds starting pitcher Mike Fiers was hurting in more ways than many knew last season.

The compilation of grief and pain would be enough to break most people, but Fiers pressed on with his baseball career, determined to rehabilitate his arm and his heart to make good on the fresh start a new season promised.

And he has not disappointed.

The 28-year-old is off to a hot start to the season for Nashville, earning the Brewers’ minor league pitcher of the month honors with a 5-0 record and 0.80 ERA through five April starts.

Good to see Fiers succeeding. Expect to see him back with the parent club soon.
