That's a bit of a surprise, I guess he must've requested it.

You would assume so....I would think the Angels would have been ok to keep him at SLC and see where things go....Bridwell's start last night may have had some impact....

#Angels GM Billy Eppler said they asked Fister if he was willing to stay at AAA longer, but Fister chose to exercise the opt out.

I doubt any other team doesn't demand a minor league run before they trust him on their staff so Fister may have fisted himself.

Fister might have been 2017's version of Lincecum. Or he might have been a successful salvage operation. If he can be recycled, it won't be with the Angels.

Peter Moura of the Times did an analysis of why the Angels haven't fallen apart from all the injuries like they did in 2016. He runs down the replacements piece by piece -- pitchers and position players -- and shows this year's replacements are clearly better than last season's. 

Eppler apparently wanted to hold onto Fister as a possible replacement, but the deal was fish or cut bait today. And we don't apparently need Fister right now.
