Nationals | Impressed with Doug Fister

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:28:37 -0700

Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams was impressed with SP Doug Fister's (lat) 35-pitch bullpen session Friday, April 11, and Fister didn't report any problems with his side or his right elbow. He threw mostly fastballs and changeups, but also mixed in a few breaking pitches. He'll throw off a mound again in a few days and build up to 50 pitches before facing live hitters and then going on a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Fister could be back in a few weeks barring a setback, and the Nationals will put him back in their rotation immediately. Tanner Roark is the man likely to lose his rotation gig once Fister is ready, so consider him a short-term option in NL-only leagues.
