Doug Fister was much better in his second start of the season as he gave up just one run on five hits with no walks and six strikeouts over seven innings against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Fister bounced back from a miserable start in his first trip to the hill, lasting seven innings while allowing only one run to take the no decision on Wednesday. Although his two starts had mixed reviews, he did not allow a walk in either contest, which is a sign that he has good control of all his pitches in the early going. While he is not out of the woods completely after just two starts, fantasy owners have to be pleased with the direction he is moving following Wednesday's start. He will look to build off of his last outing when he takes on the Reds ON Tuesday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Lions will not use the franchise tag on DT Ndamukong Suh.
There has been a lot of back-and-forth internally as to whether the Lions want to bring Suh back and obviously cost is a major issue as he will command quite the hefty salary on the open market. But they won't use the franchise tag here as they know the bitterness it will cause between player and team. Look for the Lions to make the defensive lineman a competitive offer but they won't break the bank to keep him. Analysis: Howard Bender
