Astros | Doug Fister wins sixth straight

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 21:55:42 -0700

Houston Astros SP Doug Fister won his sixth consecutive decision Tuesday, June 14, against the St. Louis Cardinals. The veteran right-hander registered 7 1/3 innings of two-run ball, yielding five hits and one walk while also striking out six.

Fantasy Tip: Fister has quietly been enjoying a renaissance season in his first year in Houston, as he's now delivered quality starts in nine of his past 10 outings to move to 7-3 on the year. The encouraging things about this particular outing were that he matched his season high in strikeouts, while the innings pitched were also a season high for the 32-year-old. With the way he's going right now, Fister is worth starting in all formats.

Astros | Doug Fister walks the park

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:52:08 -0700

Houston Astros SP Doug Fister walked a career-high seven batters in his loss to the Seattle Mariners Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Fister is 1-3 with a 5.56 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP and 11 K's in 22 2/3 innings. He could be in danger of losing his rotation spot, especially with Lance McCullers (shoulder) not too far from a return. Fister is only worth keeping in AL-only leagues.

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 18:59:58 -0700

Houston Astros SP Doug Fister is tentatively scheduled to pitch in one of the regular season games in Milwaukee for the series starting Friday, April 8. It hasn't been determined, but he will be either the No. 4 or 5 starter.

Fantasy Tip: Fister will face a Milwaukee team that is expected to be one of the worst in the National League, so he could get off to a hot start for his AL-only fantasy owners and DFS players.

Astros | Doug Fister's velocity down

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 12:11:44 -0800

Houston Astros SP Doug Fister's velocity has dropped in recent years, and a forearm injury while with the Washington Nationals last year banished him to the bullpen. "Trying to rush," Fister said. "You know, the body's an amazing thing. It makes up for a lack of this and a lack of that. Something else picks up for it. … I wasn't staying back; I wasn't staying tall. Next thing you know, my arm's compensating."

Fantasy Tip: Fister never really relied much on velocity anyway, as he's more of a ground-ball pitcher that relies on finding contact. He also showed less control last year, though, which coupled with a move to hitter-friendly Minute Maid Park, could be a recipe for disaster if he earns a spot in the rotation.

Astros | Houston's rotation competition

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 12:08:33 -0800

Houston Astros SPs Mike Fiers, Scott Feldman and Doug Fister are competing for the final two rotation spots this spring. Feldman and Fister are making a combined $15 million this year, which might make Fiers the odd-man out, even after he threw a no-hitter in 2015. Feldman's sprained right shoulder ended his 2015 season, but he said he's feeling better than ever this year.

Fantasy Tip: Fister's drop in velocity and inability to continue to induce plenty of ground balls hurts his fantasy value heading into 2016 in a much more dangerous hitter's park. Feldman's injuries make him even more of a risk. Fiers has the most upside of the bunch and is a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues for his strikeout abilities.
