Doug Fister to come off disabled list for Saturday start

3 Comments

Doug Fister’s bullpen session yesterday went well enough that the Tigers are expected to activate him from the disabled list for Saturday’s start against the Rockies.

Fister has spent two stints on the DL with a strained left side, the latest of which has sidelined him since May 29.

In between the DL trips he started six games with a 3.15 ERA and the Tigers’ rotation can certainly use the help at this point. Even with Justin Verlander atop the rotation Detroit starters rank just 22nd in ERA and every starter not named Verlander has a 5.03 ERA.
