Nationals acquire Doug Fister for prospects.

In a move made earlier tonight the Washington Nationals have acquired Doug Fister the Tigers will acquire Steve Lombardozzi, Robbie Ray, and  Ian Krol the team has announced via twitter.

The Washington Nationals were looking for rotation upgrades and they certainly got one in Fister even though it came at the expense of 3 young players. The Detroit Tigers traded Fister because they have an abundance of starting pitchers and could trade one.

Fister, the soon-to-be 30 year old had an impressive season with the Tigers going 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA in 33 games and 208.2 innings in the Tigers rotation. The righty had a .281 BAA and a BABIP of .332 with a 3.26 FIP.
