Doug Fister had another below-average start in Atlanta, allowing five runs (four earned) on ten hits, as he committed two throwing errors. He walked two and struck out three in 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Fister's fastball velocity was down by a couple of MPH, and that, along with the walks and the errors from this normally good fielder, give rise to concern about either an age-related decline or a hidden injury.

Doug Fister couldn't get his sinker to sink for the first three innings, allowing five runs (four earned), including two homers. His teammates got him the five runs back, and he pitched three scoreless innings for a final line of 6 IP 5R (4ER) 7H 3K 2BB and a no-decision on the day.

Fantasy Impact: Even with this clunker, Fister's ERA is only 2.37 and his track record is long, so expect him to return to form with solid innings, though not a lot of strikeouts.

Doug Fister allowed two runs (one earned) as he went 6 2/3 innings to notch his first win of the 2015 season. He struck out four, walked four (one intentional) and gave up four hits. At least two of the hits were misplays by Nats outfielders.

Fantasy Impact: Other than the four walks, this was a typical performance. In two starts, Fister (1-0) has given up one earned run (ERA 0.69).

Doug Fister shut out the Phillies for 6 1/3 innings, allowing six hits, walking one and striking out one. He got a no-decision when the bullpen blew a late lead.

Fantasy Impact: Fister, who went 16-6 with a 2.41 ERA in 2014, is picking up right where he left off. He won't give you a lot of strikeouts, but you will get a low ERA and he'll win games if the Nats give him any sort of run support.

Doug Fister threw six innings (87 pitches, 51 strikes) against the New York Yankees in the final exhibition game at Nationals Park. He gave up a two-run homer in the fifth inning, but otherwise appeared in control of the game, allowing four hits, striking out three and walking none.

Fantasy Impact: Fister has had an up-and-down spring, but today he looked like the guy who went 16-6 with a 2.41 ERA in 2014.

Usually a ground ball pitcher and excellent fielder, Doug Fister was tagged for three homers and six runs while making two sloppy plays on a very windy day in Viera, Florida.

Fantasy Impact: One uncharacteristic outing should probably not change your draft decision on Fister. No injury was reported.

Doug Fister looked a lot better in 3rd spring start. His final line was: 4.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 K. He threw 57 pitches, 39 strikes. (Source: Federal Baseball)

Fantasy Impact: Doug Fister isn't going to wow you with his pitching because he doesn't strike out batters at a high rate. He had a career low ERA last year at 2.41 and his ADP is 149 which is overvalued in most formats. With his strikeout rate being so low and so much of his value based off his ERA, I don't see him repeating a 2.4 ERA. Pitching is deep this year so wait on someone better with more strikeouts.
