Just as fantasy owners scrambled to find quality pitching throughout the season, MLB teams were searching for arms to fill vacancies. The Red Sox swooped in and claimed Fister off waivers in June, and while the surface numbers were uninspiring (4.88 ERA, 1.38 WHIP), the peripherals featured a career-high 8.3 K/9. It came at the expense of control, as Fister uncharacteristically issued a lot of walks (3.8 BB/9, also a career high), but at times he looked like a successful late-career restoration project for the Red Sox. In addition to changing his position on the pitching rubber, Fister started getting more whiffs with his cutter, giving him another pitch (along with his curveball) to put hitters away. Given the league-wide need for depth arms, Fister signed with the Rangers and will join the Texas rotation.
