Mike Fiers (SP, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Stream in NL-Only and Deep Mixed Leagues

Ownership: 21% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: Mike Fiers was a popular sleeper candidate this season after a 2014 in which he went 5-6 with a 2.13 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and a 76/17 K/BB rate. However, he has not had the same dominance this year, to the tune of a 3-7 record, 4.50 ERA, 1.55 WHIP. His K/BB rate of 82/28 has been solid, but he has been hit with a high BABIP of .370, which has been the cause of a lot of his problems. Before his last start, Fiers had a streak of seven consecutive starts in which he gave up three runs or fewer. Meanwhile, he has only gotten more than three runs of run support once since May 1, as the Brewers' offense is just terrible.

Starting the week against the Mets, this is a good matchup for Fiers. The Mets have an ISO of .131, 23rd in the league, including .122 against right-handed pitching (26th in baseball). While the Twins, who face Fiers on Sunday, have been a surprisingly solid team this season, they have not been the most offensively productive. They have a 84 wRC+ and .677 OPS against righties, both numbers among the worst in the league.
