Doug Fister

Pitcher, Washington Nationals

After missing the start of the season with a strained lat muscle, Fister has come back and helped push the Nationals into first place in the National League East. He’s got an 6-2 record with a 2.83 ERA in 10 starts. Fister took a loss in his last outing against the Cubs on Friday, but prior to that he threw eight scoreless innings in a recent 3-0 win over Atlanta. The Nationals have had their issues against the Braves this season.
