Red Sox's Doug Fister: Moves to bullpen following Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fister will make the transition to the bullpen after allowing six earned runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.1 innings of work against the Blue Jays on Thursday, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Fister delivered another underwhelming outing during Thursday's start, leaving the affair with the Red Sox losing in the top of the fifth inning. Most concerning, Fister just couldn't throw strikes, with only 53 out of 100 pitches registering as a positive for the right-hander. With Eduardo Rodriguez's return from the DL (knee) this past Monday, the team would have to go to a six-man rotation to keep Fister on the mound, and manager John Farrell was adamant about not going that route. Without the quantity of innings, Fister has not sold himself on being a viable fantasy commodity this season, especially after posting a 7.89 ERA in 20.2 innings of work for Boston since joining the team in June.

Red Sox's Doug Fister: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fister will receive the start for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Though he was pushed off his originally scheduled start for Tuesday after being needed out of the bullpen in Saturday's 16-inning loss to the Yankees, Fister will draw a turn in the rotation versus the Blue Jays after all. As the Red Sox's pitching schedule currently lines up, manager John Farrell will use seven different starters in the next seven games, with Chris Sale being moved back a day for extra rest in order to make room for Fister. Farrell has made no indication that the Red Sox will deploy a six-man rotation during the second half, so Fister and Brian Johnson (who will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to start Tuesday) could both be in line for demotions to the bullpen or minor-league ranks following their respective outings this week.

Red Sox's Doug Fister: Won't start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fister won't make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Blue Jays after he covered 2.2 innings in relief in Saturday's 16-inning loss to the Yankees, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

With Fister missing out on the Tuesday turn, Triple-A Pawtucket hurlers Brian Johnson and Hector Velazquez become the leading candidates to make a spot start. Fister could end up finding a permanent home in the bullpen with Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) set to come of the 10-day disabled list and rejoin the rotation Monday, putting the Red Sox rotation back at full strength. With a 6.75 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over 17.1 innings with the Red Sox, Fister hasn't made a compelling case for manager John Farrell to expand the rotation to six men.

Red Sox's Doug Fister: Tagged during 16th inning Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fister (0-3) gave up three runs off four hits and a pair of walks while striking out one in 2.2 innings of work during Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

Fister came in to pitch during the bottom of the 14th, and cruised through two innings before giving up four straight hits to begin the 16th. The right-hander took the loss during his first appearance out of the bullpen since he was a National in 2015. Fister's ERA bloated to 6.14 following this contest, and he has now factored into the decision in three of his four outings this season, all of which he took the loss. Although it's a small sample size, Fister has not pitched well for Boston this year, and could be on the homestretch of his time with the club. Since he came in to pitch over two innings of work during Saturday's game, Fister's projected start Tuesday could come into question, but that would likely be his last opportunity with Eduardo Rodriquez (knee) set to return to the rotation.

Red Sox's Doug Fister: Hit hard by Rangers on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fister (0-2) gave up six runs (four earned) on five hits and three walks over 3.2 innings while striking out three in Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Rangers.

The 33-year-old has gotten progressively worse results in his three starts for Boston, but with Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) due back after the All-Star break Fister's time with the Red Sox is likely drawing to a close. He's set to make one more start for them July 18 at home against the Blue Jays.
