RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Pitching in his first full season with Detroit, Fister did his best to prove his second-half surge in 2011, while exaggerated, was not a complete fluke. The tall (6-foot-8, 210-pound) righty went just 10-10 for the season, but he was able to post a solid 3.45 ERA and career-best 7.6 K/9. His fastball remained in the 89 mph range, but Fister was able to efficiently keep hitters off-balance with a much-improved curveball and steady changeup. He also remained a control artist (2.8 BB/9) while limiting the long ball (0.8 HR/9). Fister dealt with a costochondral strain early in the year and a concussion scare in the World Series, but all signs point to him being healthy when pitchers and catchers report to spring training. His lack of overpowering stuff might cap his overall upside, but Fister has proven over the past season and a half to be a decent addition to most fantasy rotations.

2012

Fister started the 2011 season with mild success in Seattle, posting 3.33 ERA, 1.171 WHIP and 89:32 K:BB ratio in 146 innings, but he flipped a switched into overdrive after midseason trade from the Mariners to the Tigers. In 10 starts with Detroit, Fister went 8-1 with a 1.79 ERA, 0.839 WHIP and 57:5 K:BB ratio in 70.1 innings. He'll never be mistaken for overpowering, but Fister is able to keep hitters off balance by mixing four quality pitches (low-90s fastball, slider, curve and changeup) with pinpoint control. His .261 BABIP against after joining the Tigers hints at some luck, but a 2.75 xFIP shows Fister's success with Detroit was somewhat sustainable. Fister might not be able to continue striking out hitters at the increased rate we saw with the Tigers last season, but his low walk rate (1.54 B/9IP) and ability to induce groundballs will help him post good peripherals and pick up wins while pitching for a team that actually gives him offensive support.

2011

Fister is a control artist (1.68 BB/9IP last season) who pitches to contact and therefore always needs some good defense and a bit of luck. He posted a 2.45 ERA in the season's first two months last year, but after a June DL stint, posted a 5.24 ERA the rest of the way. He was the same pitcher in both circumstances, though. The difference was his .236 BABIP in the first two months ballooned to .345 in the second half. In a perfect world, he's a No. 5 starter. In the Mariners' world, he could be the No. 2 starter depending on how the offseason works out.

2010

Fister filled in admirably when the Seattle rotation needed assistance late in 2009, but he's not a top prospect and nothing more than a fifth starter. As a non-strikeout pitcher, Fister lives on stellar control (0.96 BB/9IP in the minors). Throw out his four-walk aberration in his first start and he clocked in with a 1.76 BB/9IP for the Mariners. He also needs some luck as an extreme strike-throwing, put-the-ball-in-play pitcher, which his .277 BABIP certainly provided last season. He could compete for the fifth spot in the rotation this year but will probably start the year back at Triple-A absent landing a bullpen spot in spring training.
