Doug Fister tosses complete game Friday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/26/14) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister made the best of his last start of the regular season Friday against the Marlins.
Fister allowed three hits over nine shutout innings. He struck out nine, and did not issue any walks during the outing. Despite the strong start, Fister didn't flirt with a no-hitter or perfect game early. He gave up his first hit in the first inning, but was able to pitch around the base runner. He gave up his second hit in the fourth inning, but managed to erase the runner with a double-play. With two outs in the ninth inning, Fister allowed a triple against Donovan Solano. He managed to get a lineout to end the game and preserve the shutout.
With the win, Fister improved to 16-6.
|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.
