When Fister is locked in, he doesn't even know the score

When Doug Fister is pitching, he never checks the scoreboard and sometimes doesn't know what inning it is.

Boswell: Finally lined up, this Nats rotation makes a specialty of setting ’em down

This is what summer at Nationals Park was supposed to be like. It’s not too late. Actually, the Nationals season feels like it is just beginning.The last time Max Scherzer pitched, on Saturday, he threw a no-hitter. Since then Gio Gonzalez, Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann and Doug Fister have started and allowed no runs in 27 innings. None. That’s the first time all year that the Nats projected starting pitchers have been intact for a turn through the rotation.Read full article >>

Fister continues amazing stretch for Nats rotation

Doug Fister continued the Nats' rotation's amazing run with seven scoreless innings against the Braves on Thursday.

Fister continues amazing stretch for Nats rotation

After the Nationals signed Max Scherzer in January, many predicted they would have one of the best starting rotations in recent baseball history. Then the season started and for months everyone not named Max dealt with either injuries or inconsistent results. That was until this past week. With Doug Fister’s seven shutout frames on Thursday against the…

Nats Journal: Doug Fister with strong showing in first start back from the disabled list

In his first start back from the disabled list, Doug Fister gave up five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings, but he shouldn’t have. Defensive miscues — including Bryce Harper’s scary slip in right field — cost him, though a few pitches left up did, too. His ERA for the day was 8.44. His FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching) was 4.41. A few groundballs snuck just out of fielders’ reach, and a few plays were not made that might have been by players playing in position. Fister was not perfect, but he looked better.Read full article >>

GAME IN A NUTSHELL: Doug Fister made his return from the disabled list on Thursday and matched Rays’ ace Chris Archer through five innings, but it was all spoiled by a sixth inning that proved nothing short of a disaster for the Nats.

Nats Journal: With Doug Fister’s return and Stephen Strasburg on the way, the Nationals’ rotation reshuffles

Injured starting pitchers Doug Fister and Stephen Strasburg are getting healthy. The streaky Nationals need them. Though neither pitched well through the first two months of the season, it seems neither was entirely healthy. When pitching like themselves, Fister bustles through innings and Strasburg dominates them. If those two are right, they will help.Read full article >>

The Nationals look to rebound in Doug Fister's return after being shutout Wednesday night.

With healthy arm and clear mind, Fister ready to start over

Competitor that he is, Doug Fister never wants to admit he’s not physically fit to pitch. But it was the realization and then acceptance of that fact five weeks ago that put Fister into the position he is today: Ready to rejoin the Nationals rotation, ready to be the contributor he expected to be all…
