Nationals' Doug Fister, Sammy Solis throw off flat surface Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister and Sammy Solis were both able to throw off a flat surface on Wednesday, manager Matt Williams said per MASN Sports.
Fister, who is dealing with a strained flexor, threw for the first time since suffering the injury. Fister is 2-2 with a 4.31 ERA in 39 2/3 innings of work. Solis, who is dealing with shoulder inflammation, has not pitched since May 10 with the injury.
Nationals SP Doug Fister set to start throwing Wednesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister is scheduled to start throwing Wednesday, reports The Washington Post.
Fister has not pitched since May 14 after going on the disabled list with tightness in his right forearm. He remains without a firm timetable for return.
Williams: Nationals SP Doug Fister might miss another start
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Matt Williams has declared that Nationals shelved right-hander Doug Fister might be sidelined a bit longer than expected with continued tightness in his right forearm.
"They're working that out," he told the Washington Post. "At some point this week, he'll start the program, and go from there. The longer he's out, the longer it's gonna take [to get back]. So we have to keep on top of that."
Tanner Roark is set to start in his place Monday, but Williams indicated that Fister might also miss another start after his eligibility to come off the DL.
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister still not throwing yet
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister was in attendance for Sunday's game against the Phillies, but is yet to begin throwing, according to MLB.com.
Fister, who is currently on the 15-day DL with right forearm tightness, hopes to start the process soon.
"It's kind of a slow process," Fister said. "The process of getting complete game ready is going to be a little bit, but I'm making strides every day."
Fister is 2-2 with a 4.31 ERA in seven starts this season.
"It's been nagging me a little bit, the tightness," Fister said. "It has not allowed me to completely pitch to full capacity. … But that San Diego start really fired it up real tight."
Nationals manager says Doug Fister's MRI looked good
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams said the MRI on pitcher Doug Fister's forearm had positive results. Fister will be shut down for a few days and then will resume throwing, according to MASNSports.com.
Fister was placed on the disabled list Saturday with a flexor strain. He left his start on Friday after just two innings with tightness in his forearm.
|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.
