Doug Fister signs with Rangers

The Rangers have signed Doug Fister to a one-year, $4 million deal, with a team-option for 2019.

Fantasy Impact

Fister had an unimpressive season with the Red Sox, posting a 4.88 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 90 1/3 innings. But he did have 83 strikeouts, which was significantly over his career strikeout rate. Staying in the American League and in a hitter-friendly ballpark, Fister will be just an option in deep AL-only leagues, regardless of if his improvement in strikeouts is sustainable.

Doug Fister to pitch ALDS Game 3

Doug Fister will pitch game three of the ALDS versus the Houston Astros on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Fantasy Impact

Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz will pitch the first two games. The news comes as somewhat of a surprise. Fister apparently beat out both Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez for the nod.

Doug Fister gives up five runs in just two innings of work

Doug Fister allowed five runs on five hits and five walks over two innings in a no-decision Monday against the Orioles. He did not record a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

After a great stretch of starts, Fister has fallen apart in his last two games. The veteran pitcher has given up 11 runs over six innings in his last two outings. Fantasy owners need to drop Fister and grab a better option on the waiver wire.

Doug Fister gives up six runs in loss to Oakland

Doug 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.

Fantasy Impact

Fister had pitched well of late and over his previous four starts to Wednesday had a 1.50 ERA and 0.73 WHIP. But he struggled against the A's and looked like the Fister of old. He has a chance to turn things around in his next matchup which is against the Orioles.

Doug Fister holds Jays to one run in win

Doug Fister (5-7) held the Blue Jays to one run on four hits and three walks while striking out nine over seven innings to lead the Red Sox to a 6-1 win Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Fister has been on an impressive stretch for the Red Sox. Over his last six starts, he has four wins, a 2.88 ERA, and 1.01 WHIP. Fister is probably worth a pickup in all leagues for fantasy owners needing pitching depth.
