Fister allowed five runs on five hits and five walks across two innings in a no-decision Monday against the Orioles. He did not record a strikeout. Fister endured a miserable outing, throwing just half of his pitches for strikes while achieving a new season high in free passes. He was brought back out for the third inning after allowing three runs in the second, but the veteran was pulled after loading the bases with nobody out. Fister enjoyed a nice run of form into the month of September, but he's since allowed 11 earned runs over six innings across his last two starts. The veteran is scheduled to take the mound Sunday against the Reds.
Fister (5-8) gave up six runs on six hits and a walk over just four innings in Wednesday's loss to Oakland. He struck out four. After a sterling four-game run that saw Fister put up a 1.50 ERA and 0.73 WHIP, he was due to fall back to earth, but he did so particularly painfully in this one -- at least as far as his fantasy owners are concerned. Fister will have a chance to bounce back against the Orioles on Monday; he held them to two runs over seven innings Aug. 27.
Fister (5-7) limited the Blue Jays to one run on four hits and three walks while whiffing nine over seven innings en route to a 6-1 win Wednesday. His last four starts have been incredible, as Fister's pitched 30 innings while allowing just five runs in that span, good for a 1.50 ERA; his WHIP has been similarly impressive at 0.73, and he's even striking guys out at an uncharacteristically high rate. Fister's been a waiver-wire diamond at this late juncture of the season, and with steady pitching hard to come by, he should find himself locked into plenty of fantasy rosters as long as this productive stretch continues. Thanks to a couple off days on the schedule, the veteran may not take the mound again until next Wednesday against Oakland.
Fister (4-7) picked up the win over the Yankees on Friday, allowing one run on four hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out five. After serving up back-to-back doubles to Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge to begin the game, the veteran righty settled into a groove and didn't allow another Yankee to even reach second base. Fister's provided quality starts in five of his last six outings, posting a 3.05 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB in 41.1 innings over that stretch. He'll look to keep things rolling Wednesday at home against the Blue Jays.
Fister (3-7) struck out seven batters and gave up two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings in taking Sunday's loss to the Orioles. After giving up two runs in the first frame, Fister was able to recover and kept Baltimore's offense in check for the remainder of his outing. While he was ultimately tagged with the loss, this was the second consecutive quality start for Fister, as he was coming off a complete-game one-hitter victory over the Indians. Although he's looked like a solid starter recently, Fister's poor control (4.27 BB/9) and subpar ability to strike out the opposition (7.52 K/9) limits his fantasy value. He'll make his next start Friday against the Yankees.
