Apparently all Mike Fiers needed was to be told he was being removed from the Astros' rotation. Fiers has been a different pitcher since Astros manager A.J. Hinch notified the then-struggling righthander of his banishment to the bullpen on May 27. The decision was reversed by necessity a day later when Charlie Morton landed on the disabled list, but Hinch appears to have gotten his point across.
