Aug. 14 6:45 PM PT7:45 PM MT8:45 PM CT9:45 PM ET21:45 ET1:45 GMT9:45 6:45 PM MST8:45 PM EST9:15 PM VEN5:45 UAE (+1)8:45 PM CT-Doug Fister fell to 2-6, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks in 4.1 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Cleveland Indians 7-3 on Monday. Fister struck out five, ending the game with a 5.56 ERA and 1.65 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Fister held the Indians to two runs across 7 2/3 innings just two weeks ago, but failed to duplicate that effort and had a two-start winning streak snapped. Though he's pitched well lately, the well-traveled right-hander is 2-4 with a 5.17 ERA in six appearances at Fenway Park this season, and he'll face the Yankees at home next time out.

July 22 9:11 AM PT10:11 AM MT11:11 AM CT12:11 PM ET12:11 ET16:11 GMT0:11 9:11 AM MST11:11 AM EST11:41 AM VEN20:11 UAE11:11 AM CT-Fister has been moved to the bullpen from the starting rotation.
Analysis: The Red Sox came out of the All-Star break using a six-man rotation but decided to go back to five and Fister was the odd man out. Since being claimed off waivers from the Angels, Fister is 0-4 with a 7.89 ERA in five games (four starts). Since he last pitched on Thursday, he isn't likely to be available out of the bullpen until Sunday.

Fister struck out three, ending the game with a 6.14 ERA and 1.70 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Fister's first three turns in the rotation since being claimed on waivers haven't inspired much confidence, to say the least. Avoid him for now.
July 1 9:46 PM PT10:46 PM MT11:46 PM CT12:46 AM ET0:46 ET4:46 GMT12:46 9:46 PM MST11:46 PM EST12:16 AM VEN8:46 UAE11:46 PM CT-Doug Fister allowed three runs on four hits and three walks in 5.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4 on Friday. Fister struck out five.

June 25 5:27 PM PT6:27 PM MT7:27 PM CT8:27 PM ET20:27 ET0:27 GMT8:27 5:27 PM MST7:27 PM EST7:57 PM VEN4:27 UAE (+1)7:27 PM CT-Doug Fister fell to 0-1, allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks in 6.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 on Sunday. Fister struck out six, ending the game with a 4.50 ERA and 1.67 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Fister had a solid Red Sox debut in his 200th career start, but is 0-6 with a 9.45 ERA in his last eight starts.
June 23 12:28 PM PT1:28 PM MT2:28 PM CT3:28 PM ET15:28 ET19:28 GMT3:28 12:28 PM MST2:28 PM EST2:58 PM VEN23:28 UAE2:28 PM CT-The Red Sox have claimed Fister off waivers from the Angels.
Analysis: The 33-year-old opted out of his minor league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, though he has the right to refuse the claim and become a free agent. A 12-game winner for the Astros last season, Fister went 1-0 with a 4.02 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Salt Lake after signing with the Angels last month. The Red Sox do have an opening in the rotation with Eduardo Rodriguez and Brian Johnson currently out with injuries.
May 20 2:46 PM PT3:46 PM MT4:46 PM CT5:46 PM ET17:46 ET21:46 GMT5:46 2:46 PM MST4:46 PM EST5:16 PM VEN1:46 UAE (+1)4:46 PM CT-The Angels have signed Fister.
Analysis: Fister spent the entire offseason unsigned as he sought a major league contract, and he finally got one from an Angels team that is currently without rotation members Garrett Richards and Tyler Skaggs. The 33-year-old, who went 12-13 with a 4.64 ERA in 32 starts with Houston last season, will get some work at the Angels' spring training complex and likely make a few minor league starts before joining the team sometime next month.
