Nats Journal: Doug Fister: ‘It’s an honor to be a part of this staff’

Gangly as ever after an offseason spent in northern California, Nationals right-handed starter Doug Fister spoke to reporters in front of his Space Coast Stadium locker Thursday afternoon, the day pitchers and catchers officially reported to camp. The players had to be in Viera, but didn’t have to show up at the stadium, so the locker to his right was as yet uninhabited by anything but a No. 31 jersey that will soon belong to Max Scherzer.Read full article >>

How good will the Tigers’ starting rotation be in 2015?

After losing Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello over the winter, the Tigers need other pitchers to step up if they hope to be as good in 2015.

After trading Doug Fister for three players who contributed nothing in 2014, the team’s rotation ERA climbed from 3.44 to 3.89, their WHIP rose from 1.21 to 1.27, and their fielding independent pitching (FIP) went from 3.12 to 3.88.
