Nationals' Doug Fister walks four, earns win Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister earned a win Thursday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 5-2 win over the Phillies.
Fister (1-0) issued just 24 walks over the entire 2014 season, and the last time he doled out as many as four free passes came back in Sept. 2013. He was still able to largely limit the damage and earn his first win of the season in the process. Fister takes a 0.69 ERA and 5:5 K:BB ratio in 13 innings into Wednesday's matchup with the Cardinals.
Nationals' Fister has 2.12 ERA in five career starts vs. Phillies

|(4/16/15) Nationals starting pitcher Doug Fister will be making his sixth career start and second this season against NL East foe Philadelphia on Thursday. Fister unfortunately took a no-decision in his season debut Saturday against Philadelphia, despite throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings.
Fister has had pretty good success against Philadelphia in his career. He is 2-2 with a 2.12 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in five career starts against the Phillies. He has allowed more than two earned runs just once and has gone less than six innings just once.
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister goes six scoreless innings Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister went 6 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday, allowing six hits in Washington's 3-2 loss to the Phillies in 10 innings.
Fister, who added one strikeout and a walk to his totals, worked out of a few jams in the game. After Chase Utley reached on a fielder's choice in the second, first baseman Ryan Howard doubled to deep right and Utley was thrown out at home trying to reach from first.
"I think it's a mental situation where you don't want [the layoff] affecting you," Fister said to MLB.com. "For me, that's the attempt I took. I wanted to make sure I got enough work in between starts. I think I felt OK. Obviously, there is a little bit of rust."
Fister will look to earn his first win of the season Thursday when he faces the Phillies again.
Nationals starter Doug Fister goes six solid on Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/4/15) After two consecutive rocky starts, Nationals pitcher Doug Fister threw well on Saturday, holding the Yankees to two runs on four hits in six innings of work.|
Fister threw four scoreless frames but the Yankees posted two runs in the fifth inning thanks to a two-run home run from second baseman Stephen Drew.
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister struggles again in outing Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister surrendered six runs in four innings of work Sunday against the Marlins, pushing his spring training ERA to 7.02 in five starts. Fister gave up three more home runs in the outing.
"I can't let any of that affect me. I know I have to get the ball down regardless," Fister said to MLB.com. "I felt good today. I felt I was almost back in the swing of things. There are obviously some things I have to fine tune at the end of spring.
"I left the ball up, and it allowed the Marlins to get good contact on the ball. I don't let outside influences affect the game. It's a game I have to control and make adjustments."
|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.
