Game 3 between the Red Sox and Astros went a lot like Games 1 and 2 -- the Red Sox allowing multiple runs in the first inning. On Sunday, it was Doug Fister as the right-hander allowed three first inning runs. The Red Sox have been outscored 7-0 in the first inning in the series and have given up...

HOUSTON -- Doug Fister has come quite a long way. From signing a minor-league contract with the Angels, to being designated by assignment for that team, to being bumped out of the Red Sox' rotation before finally finding his way back in. And now, Fister finds himself as the Game 3 starter for the...

There's a long way to go. Wednesday night was a pretty good reminder of that. When Doug Fister threw his first pitch, at 7:10 p.m., he was one of the best stories of the season for the Red Sox, having gone from waiver wire pickup to potential No. 2 starter heading into the postseason. But by the...

Doug Fister, staff ace. OK, so maybe it would be unfair to leap-frog Chris Sale when it comes to identifying the Red Sox' most important starter, but if you're talking about the pitcher who has done the most for John Farrell's club, Fister is in the conversation. That notion was only cemented with...

NEW YORK -- If David Price had done what his replacement has managed in the last month, the Red Sox would be suggesting their ace was back to being an ace. That's how good Doug Fister has been. Since replacing Price in the Red Sox' startering rotation after the lefty went on the disabled list with...

CLEVELAND -- We interrupt all things Kyrie Irving for a Red Sox update -- Doug Fister just one-hit the Indians. Fister, the fifth starter whose spot in the rotation and maybe even on the roster would disappear with David Price's return, instead made his most emphatic case for sticking around. Save...

Since the Red Sox claimed Doug Fister off waivers from the Angels, the right-hander has struggled. Fister's future looks uncertain after an 8-6 loss to the Blue Jays on Thursday. "I look at today and build from there," Fister said. "I have no idea what's in store. I just have to be ready to pitch...

In 2012 Doug Fister made his annual return to his alma mater, Fresno State, to work out and get some throwing in. But this time he noticed one Bulldog who stood out from the rest. The 6-foot-8 Fister hadn't encountered many players who could stare him in the eye. So when a sophomore emerged...

The Red Sox’ six-game win streak is over. One of the biggest keys to the streak was getting solid starting pitching and that trend came to an end on Wednesday night when Doug Fister couldn’t make it out of the fourth inning as the Red Sox fell 8-2 to the Rangers. The game was delayed 90 minutes at...
