In 2014, Fien is 3-1 with an ERA of 2.45 in 14.2 innings, striking out 10 while walking two.
The Detroit Tigers drafted Fien, 30, in 2006 (20th round) and he made his debut on July 26, 2009. After twice being claimed off waivers in 2010 (Red Sox and Blue Jays), Fien cycled back and forth between Detroit and Triple-A Toledo under a minor league contract for the 2011 season. As a free agent, signed with the Houston Astros for 2012 (minors) and was released in August 2012. He signed for 2013 with the Twins and made an Opening Day roster for the first time in his career. Fien thrived with the Twins, making 73 appearances and holding right-handed hitters to a .213 batting average. He is pre-arb and under team control through 2018.
