Dump Doug Fister

Doug Fister had a tremendous year in 2014, finishing the season 16-6 with a 2.41 ERA, fourth best in the Senior Circuit, and then stifling the Giants in his one play-off start.  Still, I would recommend avoiding him like ebola for your 2015 rotisserie league team.

Fister’s strikeout rate was way down this year, 5.4/9IP compared to a 6.8 average over his previous three seasons.  He wasn’t much of a ground ball pitcher in 2014 either, serving up 18 dingers, a career high.

It all makes me think he’s going to get hurt in 2015, or at least lease miss some starts and have his worst ERA since at least 2010 and probably of his career to date.  Someone’s going to overpay for Doug Fister after the season he just had — don’t let it be you.
