Doug Fister

Hey everyone,

Your favorite time of the week has arrived! Yup, it’s time for an all-new two-start pitcher article. Here’s a sampling. For the complete version, click on the link at the bottom of this post.

12-team mixed leagues

Doug Fister (vs. LAA, @KC)

Coming off a largely disappointing 2015 campaign, Fister has successfully revitalized his career with the Astros this season, boasting a 7-3 record to go along with a 3.26 ERA and 1.23 WHIP through 13 starts.  The veteran righty is unlikely to help owners in the strikeout department (5.6 K/9 this year), but thanks to his contributions in the other categories, he deserves a spot on most mixed league rosters. As for next week, Fister, who has allowed three runs or fewer in all but one of his starts this season, deserves a spot in most starting lineups. The Angels and Royals rank 16th and 27th, respectively, in the Majors in runs scored.

Deeper mixed leagues

Nathan Karns (@DET, vs. STL)

Inconsistency is the main theme of Karns’ 2016 season so far, and erratic command (4.2 BB/9) is mostly to blame. One area of his game that has been consistent, however, is his strikeout production (9.5 K/9). Being that the Tigers and Cardinals both rank among the top six teams in the Majors in OPS, pitching Karns next week is plenty risky. But at least for deep-league owners chasing strikeouts, starting the Mariners righty could be a risk worth taking.

Offering Mazara and Cozart for Cano would that be unfair? I have 8 OF since I picked up M Taylor or would you just drop him?

Feel free to offer it. Not veto material but you’re clearly getting the better side.
