Doug Fister loses spot in rotation for Nationals
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/6/15) Matt Williams has not declared that the odd man out for the Nationals when Stephen Strasburg returns to the rotation Saturday is Joe Ross, who filled it for him. It's Doug Fister, who has lost four of his last five decisions.
Fister will head to the bullpen with 20 earned runs allowed in his last 34 innings pitched. His ERA has risen from 2.87 in mid-May to 4.60. He has just two quality starts in his last six outings and one win since June 25.
Nationals SP Doug Fister allows three homers in loss Monday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/3/15) Nationals starter Doug Fister had a rough outing against the Diamondbacks on Monday. The right-hander was bitten by the longball, as he allowed a trio of home runs in the 6-4 loss. On the night, he allowed five runs on eight hits over six innings. He did strike out six without walking a batter, but overall it was another shaky start for Fister.
Fister (4-7, 4.60 ERA) allowed a solo home run to Nick Ahmed in the third inning before David Peralta (two-run shot) and Welington Castillo went back-to-back in the fourth.
This is the fourth time in his past six starts that Fister has allowed at least four runs. He owns a 5.29 ERA over that stretch.
Nationals SP Doug Fister steady in victory
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/29/15) Nationals starter Doug Fister put together a consistent start Wednesday, going six solid innings to pick up just his fourth victory of the season.
Fister scattered just four hits, allowing two early runs before his teammates provided offensive help. Fister utilized his control, walking only one batter while striking out four.
Fister had lost five of his previous six starts, allowing 26 runs over that stretch.
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 picks up fifth loss of season Saturday
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/18/15) Nationals starting pitcher Doug Fister was outdueled by Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw on Saturday.
Fister threw five innings, allowed four runs and nine hits while picking uphis fifth loss of the season. He walked two batters and managed to record just one strikeout.
Fister (3-5) now has a 4.30 ERA with 32 strikeouts and 16 walks in 69 innings this season.
|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.
