A veteran of seven MLB seasons, Fister signed an incentive-laden free agent contract with the Astros prior to the 2016 season. With a fastball that tops out in the high eighties, Fister depends on control and changing speeds to keep big league hitters guessing. The 6-foot 8-inch right­hander joins Houston's starting rotation owning a career record of 65-63 and an impressive ERA+ of 117.
