Playing for six teams (Seattle, Detroit, Washington, Houston, Boston & Texas) over ten seasons, Doug Fister spent his career as a middle of the rotation Starting Pitcher. 

The 6' 8" hurler relied on forcing batters to ground out, and it worked well for him.  On four occasions, he would win at least 10 Games, and he was a significant part of the Tigers run to the 2012 World Series.  While Fister did not strike out that many batters, he didn't walk very many either.  Four times, he would finish in the top four in BB/9, with three of those years also generating a top ten finish in SO/BB.  

His best year in baseball was as a Washington National in 2014, where he finished eighth in Cy Young voting with career-highs in Wins (16) and ERA (2.41).  Fister retired with a record of 83-92 over 1,422.1 innings logged.
