Stephen Strasburg will start on Saturday | MLB.com

This isn’t going to help Fister’s free agent value.

Ross has allowed three earned runs or fewer in his each of his first seven starts. On Thursday, Ross pitched six solid innings in an 8-3 victory over the D-Backs.

“He understands if he makes pitches, he has a chance to get them out,” Williams said about Ross. “We’ve seen so far that he doesn’t walk a whole lot of guys and makes you put the ball in play and that’s important. His ball has good late movement … and a good slider to go along with it for strikes when he needs it and out of the zone to get a swing and miss, too.”

Fister, who led the led the Nationals with 16 victories last year, has had it rough in 2015, going 4-7 with 4.60 ERA in 15 starts. He last pitched on Monday against the D-Backs, throwing six innings and allowing five runs and three home runs. A finesse pitcher, Fister had problems keeping the ball down.

“[Fister] wants to pitch,” Williams said. “He’s willing to do whatever he can to help us win. So he was out [in the bullpen] today and he’ll continue to be out there and get innings where we can get him innings. He’s a team guy. He’s ready to pitch at any moment to do whatever he can.

“It’s a difficult task when you’ve been a starter for so long. The opportunities for him will be long. That’s kind of where we see it. It’s never easy but he’s willing to go out there and do what he can to help us win a ballgame.”
