How the Doug Fister trade closed the window on the Detroit Tigers

The “butterfly effects” of that cold December trade are still being felt today In the summer of 2011, former Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski knew he needed one more starting pitcher to complete a rotation that already included a historically dominant Justin Verlander, an emerging Max Scherzer and a very green Rick Porcello. The fourth spot in the rotation was being held down by Brad Penfrey. No. Mike Pelney. The fifth rotation spot initially belonged to Phil Coke, then rotated among “prospects” who were never going to be as good as we hoped, like Andy Oliver and Jacob...

Doug Fister Released

Nolasco gets to stay in the rotation. Today the Angels released SP Doug Fister, per their PR department. Today the Angels requested unconditional release waivers on RHP Doug Fister for the purpose of granting him his unconditional release.— Angels PR (@LAAngelsPR) June 21, 2017 It looks like Ricky Nolasco is safe. With Matt Shoemaker on the DL and Parker Bridwell pitching well, it looks like our rotation is Meyer-Bridwell-Chavez-Nolasco-Ramirez for the time being. There will be no memes involving Fister in the gamethreads this year.

Angels Release Doug Fister

The Angels have released veteran righty Doug Fister from his minor-league deal, per a club announcement. Today was the date for his opt-out opportunity, so it appears likely that the Halos elected not to add him to the MLB roster and instead granted a request that he be returned to the open market.

Game 75 - Nolasco Bandbox Wars Pregame Picks

Angels @ Yankees - 4:05 PM YOU MUST COMMENT BELOW FOR YOUR SCORES TO COUNT! The link to today’s game will now be on the top. HERE Yesterday’s game was pretty cool, don’t you think? HERE Just completely mad about the whole Ricky Nolasco situation, so I created a whole game for him. Meet ABOX: Ricky Nolasco style. Of course, they could call up Doug Fister tomorrow in this imaginary scenario I made up in my head that’s not going to happen. I don’t even know when Fister last pitches. Ugh. End of rant. Probables: Ricky Nolasco (LAA) @ Jordan Montgomery (NYY) Note: If the player...

AL West Notes: Fister, Segura, Brugman, Doolittle

Doug Fister’s first start with the Angels’ Triple-A affiliate went quite well, as the veteran right-hander tossed five innings of one-run ball and allowed just four hits and no walks to go along with seven strikeouts. Of the 11 balls put into play against him, seven were hit on the ground (63.6 percent rate). Fister…

We now have details for that Doug Fister signing, including a shrewd out clause

We now have details for that Doug Fister signing, including a shrewd out clause

The 33 year old RHP will get $1.75 mil plus a whole lot more in incentives. Last week, SB Nation’s own Chris Cotillo broke the news that the Angels were picking up free agent RHP Doug Fister, but there were few details known except it was a major league deal and there was a pending a physical that needed to be passed. Fister was most recently with the Astros in 2016, when he posted 1.9 fWAR, meanwhile the Halos were known to be looking at all options to help bolster their staff that had been (yet again) snakebit in the injury department. Yesterday, with the deal now official, the terms...

AL West: Angels sign Doug Fister

AL West: Angels sign Doug Fister

Check out what’s happening in the American League West. The Angels have agreed to a deal with previously good pitcher, Doug Fister. Once the veteran reworks his way through Triple-A and back up to the majors, he’ll be paid a base salary of $1.75M with the possibility of making $1.2M extra based on performance. After Fister’s most recent showcase it looked as if he’d land with the Diamondbacks. While the righty’s career 3.60 ERA and 3.78 FIP are nothing to throw a parade over, he does have the ability to throw a baseball. And sometimes, it’s the simplest things the you need the...
