Nationals' Doug Fister walks four, earns win Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) 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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) 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
(4/11/2015) 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.

"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."

"I know that if I can command my sinker and make sure that I have that under control, everything else will fall into place," Fister said after the outing, per the Associated Press. "That's just something I need to work on right now."

Fister has delivered a 3.24 ERA and 3:2 K:BB ratio in 8 1/3 innings this spring.


Nationals manager Matt Williams still weighing options for opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams has not decided on who his Opening Day starter will be, noting that all five of his pitchers -- Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Max Scherzer, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez -- deserve a chance, per MLB.com.

"A lot goes into it," Williams said. "There's matchups. There is health in the spring. If anybody is a little bit cranky, we want to make sure we back off in that regard. There are three off-days leading up to the regular season. So if we have a hiccup here or there with anybody -- we saw that with Doug last year. … All those things go into it. Track record goes into, knowledge of the [the opponents].

"How they line up is irrelevant when you get past the first [turn through the] rotation anyway," Williams said. "But it's an honor for the guy that's gets chosen [for the Opening Day] start. Everybody wants to get off on the right foot in your first game -- great momentum and all those wonderful things. But if you don't win that first game, it doesn't mean you are dead. You go to the next one."

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.
