MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Oakland pitcher Mike Fiers used the sand and surf and plenty of rigorous workouts this winter to clear his mind from everything around him after he became the whistleblower in the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal. He trained alongside longtime friend Mike Dobre and Athletics rookie Jesus Luzardo became their pupil during beach runs and swims on the Florida coast. This an offseason Fiers is counting on to carry him from the momentum established during a career 2019, when he pitched his second career no-hitter and went on to win 15 games.
