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.
