    • Astros' Doug Fister: Paternity list on deck
      By RotoWire Staff

      Manager A.J. Hinch indicated Wednesday night that Fister will likely be placed on the paternity list in the coming days, Brian McTaggert of MLB.com reports. The move would provide the Astros with a useful roster spot following hamstring injuries for both Luis Valbuena and Carlos Gomez. Fister's stay on the paternity list, assuming it occurs in the next couple days, would also likely be short enough for the veteran hurler to make his next scheduled start Monday against the Blue Jays.

    • Fister (10-7) allowed six runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Yankees. Fister struggled to keep the Yankees' hitters off the base paths, and he exited the contest with a 6-1 deficit, leading to his seventh loss of 2016. He came into this contest allowing only five runs over his last three starts, and his ERA is now at 3.73 on the year. He'll make his next start Monday against the Blue Jays.

    • Fister (10-6) struck out five and allowed four hits and two walks over seven innings to earn the win Wednesday against Oakland. Fister continued his domination of the A's, as he's now 3-1 with a 0.99 ERA in four starts against them this season. The crafty vet is 9-3 over his last 15 outings going back to May 1, tallying 11 quality starts during that stretch. Fister is on pace to set a career high in wins, exceeding his 2014 season in Washington in which he won 16 games.

    • Fister earned his ninth win of the season Friday versus Seattle, allowing three runs with three strikeouts and two walks across five innings. The veteran entered Friday's start having lost three in a row, and despite not throwing the ball exceptionally well, his offense gave him plenty to work with and he was able to do enough. Fister is in the midst of another solid yet unspectacular season, as he has a 3.64 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP through 111.1 innings, and he will look to continue as such Wednesday at Oakland in his next start.

    • Fister allowed just two earned runs with two strikeouts and three walks across eight strong innings Thursday versus Oakland en route to his sixth loss of the season. The veteran completed eight frames for the first time this season and lowered his ERA to 3.55, but his offense failed to pick him up versus Rich Hill and he suffered his third straight loss. On a positive note, Fister pitched much better than he had in his previous two outings, when he allowed nine runs in just 11.1 innings, and he has now tossed six quality starts out of his last eight. He will take a breather during the All-Star break before making his next start.
