SP Drew Smyly will move into the rotation in Detroit to replace Fister. Ray is expected to start next year in the minor leagues. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said dealing Fister had nothing to do with the hopes that they can sign SP Max Scherzer to a long-term contract before he becomes a free agent.

Updating an immediate report, Detroit Tigers president Dave Dombrowski said RP Jose Veras will supplement the roles of RPs Joaquin Benoit and Drew Smyly.
Fantasy Tip: Well there's a bit of a curveball. Benoit has been stellar this season, but he lacks the closing experience to give confidence that he can withstand a playoff race. Veras could still come into play before all is said and done, so we wouldn't drop him. However, he loses significant value in a setup role.
