Nationals SP Doug Fister struggles again in Thursday loss
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/23/15) Nationals right-hander Doug Fister called his Thursday start in Pittsburgh "inexcusable." But it was no worse than some of his others lately.
Fister, who added that his sinker was moving sideways rather than down, needed 99 pitches to get through five innings in which he allowed four runs on nine hits. He walked one and struck out six in lowering his record to 3-6.
His problems began immediately on an RBI triple by Starling Marte in the first and Pedro Alvarez homer in the second. A run-scoring double by Jung Ho Kang in the fifth added to his misery.
Fister, who put up almost identical numbers in his previous outing, has surrendered 28 runs in 43 innings over his last eight starts to send his ERA soaring from 2.87 to 4.50.

Nationals SP Doug Fister fires seven shutout innings Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/25/15) Nationals right-hander Doug Fister was excellent in his start against the Braves on Thursday. Fister was making his second start since returning from the disabled list with a forearm injury, and this one went much better than the previous one.
On Thursday, Fister threw seven scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out four in the 6-0 victory. This was Fister's first scoreless outing since he went 6 1/3 shutout innings on May 3. He finished with 111 pitches on Thursday.
"[He] continued to be down in the zone, forcing contact," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "We pushed him to 110-ish, which was good. Got him through that last inning, too, which was good. I thought he pitched really well. He was in command out there, throwing it where he wanted to."
Fister had given up 12 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings over his last two starts, straddling his stint on the DL. So this was a nice bounceback for the veteran righty, who now sports a 4.15 ERA on the season.
"I wanted to push myself today, and [manager Matt Williams] let me go back out there in the seventh," Fister said. "That's huge for me, is being able to go back out there and prove to teammates and prove to myself that I can go out there and finish an inning. I hadn't done that this year, so that was a positive note for me personally. It takes a lot of plays in the outfield, plays in the infield, guys turning double plays early on in the game to enable me to do that."
|2014 Summary: Moving from Detroit to Washington, where he'd have a better infield defense behind him and wouldn't have to face a DH every time through the order, was supposed to make Doug Fister better. That's exactly what happened. His ERA dropped by more than a full run to a career-low 2.41, and he won 16 of his 25 starts to make him a top 15 pitcher on a per-start basis in Head-to-Head points leagues. |
Playing time status: The start of Fister's season was delayed because of elbow inflammation and a strained lat, but he clearly wasn't feeling the effects of either injury when he finally made his Nationals debut. He missed a handful of starts in 2012 as well, giving him something of an injury history, but that's not really the concern for him in Fantasy.
2015 Outlook: The concern for Fister is that at a time when everyone who's anyone has the capacity for 150 strikeouts, his rate falls below what most people would consider the acceptable. While it shrank in 2014, his home run rate rose, giving him a 3.93 FIP that suggests he may have actually regressed despite the career-low ERA. As long as he continues to throw strikes and eat innings for an expected contender, though, Fister is a pretty safe bet to be a top-40 starting pitcher.
