Nationals P Doug Fister focused on season, not free agency
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Though Nationals pitcher Doug Fister is entering a contract year, he maintained Thursday that he's focused solely on his upcoming season with Washington.
“I’m wearing this jersey right now, and that’s the most important thing,” Fister said, via CSN Washington. “I’m a National through-and-through right now. If it looks in the future that I can stay here, great. If not, I’ve got to make sure I get my job done and be a part of the team that I’m a part of.”
Fister and the Nationals avoided arbitration after agreeing to a one-year, $11.4 million deal in January.
In 2014, Fister went 16-6 and posted a 2.41 ERA.

|(1/16/15) Nationals starting pitcher Doug Fister avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to an $11.4 million salary for 2015, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Fister, who was in his final year of arbitration and is set to become a free agent after the 2015 season, made $7.2 million in 2014.
Fister, who will turn 31 on Feb. 4, won a career-high 16 games in 2014 -- his first season with the Nationals. He is 60-56 with a 3.34 ERA in six MLB seasons.
Doug Fister: 'I want to be a National'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) Nationals starting pitcher Doug Fister, who is entering his final year of arbitration, said he is not spoken to the team about a contract extension, per The Washington Post. Fister said he is also not getting caught up in trade rumors.
"I don’t wanna know stories or anything. I’m a pitcher for the Washington Nationals right now, and that’s the stance I always take," Fister said. "I’m a part of this group. I’m a part of this team, and that’s what I want to be. Until something else happens, until I’m told otherwise, that’s what I want to be and that’s where I am.
"There were always rumors, but I want to be taken by surprise because I want to expect that I’m going to be back here next year. That’s how I want to approach things, that’s how I want to take it. You take this jersey away from me, I don’t want to take it off. That’s how much I love each team that I play for. I want to be loyal to that team. I want to be a National."
Report: Nats, Doug Fister not making progress in extension talks
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/28/14) The Nationals made pitcher Doug Fister an extension offer in the spring after acquiring him in a trade with the Tigers. Both sides weren't able to agree to terms at the time. According to James Wagner of the Washington Post, both have not made any progress in extension talks "for months"
Fister is entering a contract year after going 16-6 with a 2.41 ERA in 25 starts. He'll make $7.2 million in 2015.
|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.
