Spiers earned High-A Central League Pitcher of the Week honors for his performance from June 7-13.

The right hander appeared twice in relief last week for the Dayton Dragons and pitched 7 1/3 innings allowing just one hit and two walks with 10 strikeouts against 24 batters faced.

Spiers earned a win on Tuesday June 8 with six scoreless innings as the Dragons fought back from a 7-0 deficit to defeat Great Lakes 8-7.
