Athletics acquire Mike Fiers from Tigers

Mike Fiers

The Oakland Athletics have boosted their rotation for the stretch run with a waiver trade acquisition.

The team announced Monday that they have acquired pitcher Mike Fiers from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for two players to be named later or cash.

The 33-year-old Fiers has been a very solid contributor to the Tigers this season. He’s 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA in 21 starts, and he led the 2017 World Series winning Houston Astros in innings pitched.

Fiers is also an experienced veteran headed to a fairly young team. The way things are going, he may rekindle his rivalry with a Yankees slugger in a potential AL Wild Card game.
