What is going on with fister?


Recommended Posts

Hard to tell...they may not have been impressed with his last outing...Fister, Nolasco and Chavez likely gives you 3 guys in your rotation pushing or over a 5.00 ERA...but it's not like we have tons of other options....Daniel Wright? Geez...

As of yesterday, the Angels still hadn't decided what to do with him. His opt out is Weds, but he can agree to stay in the minors also. 

@Jeff Fletcher    Any thought that they might want him to start another couple of games at SLC and see how he pitches, how Shoemaker recovers, etc....I guess, from Fister's standpoint, it's about other options....if he thinks he might get picked up quickly if the Angels don't call him up, he would probably opt out...if he doesn't think he has a lot of options, he might want to agree to a couple of more SLC starts and push the opt out back 10 days or so....Thoughts?

I suspect that's exactly what is happening.

Well I hope they give him a fair shake in the rotation. His command has been a little shaky but it improved from start to start, his overall performance in Salt Lake, short as it is has been stellar. The stuff is pretty much the same as it has always been, and the track record speaks for itself.

That and we have a couple different directions we can go here. Fister can step in for Bridwell, Ramirez or Chavez, all of which could still be useful in the bullpen.

He gave up 5 runs in 5 innings in his last start for Salt Lake.
