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.

Fiers has a 0.80 era along with a 10.2 K/BB rate in the PCL.

He's also possibly the ninth starting pitcher behind Lohse/Gallardo/Peralta/Garza/Estrada/Will Smith/Thornburg/Jimmy Nelson.

The Brewers should return rule 5 pick Wang to the Pirates and bring up Fiers as a reliever. They would still have a reliever backlog once Tom Gorz and Jim Henderson return from the DL list.

Nashville is at Iowa tonight. The game is still in progress, but Fiers pitched 6.2 innings, giving up five hits, one walk, and no runs, while striking out thirteen. After seven innings, Nashville is up 7-0.
