Doug Fister beat up by the Mariners
Doug Fister could not escape the fourth inning, going 3 2/3 innings allowing seven runs on eight hits, while striking out three batters. The Astros lost 7-3.
With the loss, Fister's record is now 12-12 with a 4.45 ERA. His numbers have definitely taken a hit, over his last seven starts he owns a 1-5 record with a very large 8.16 ERA. These are terrible numbers for Fister owners and the Astros as a team, especially during the stretch run. If you own Fister, he cannot be relied on during this point in your fantasy season.

Doug Fister gets roughed up in loss
Doug Fister could not get out of the fifth inning, lasting 4 2/3 allowing six runs on nine hits. He walked and struck out three batters each in the 6-3 loss to the Yankees.
Fister has been the Astros most consistent pitcher this season, but did not have his best stuff last night. His control was lost and he was leaving pitches over the heart of the plate that Yankees batters were not missing. With a 10-7 record to go along with a 3.73 ERA, Fister still holds a lot of value, and owners should look at this start as a minor speed bump in what has been a successful season to-date.
