Fister was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a strained right knee.

Fister was diagnosed with the injury after he was sent in for an MRI following his five-inning start in the series opener Friday against the Astros. Due to upcoming team off days Monday and Thursday, the Rangers would be able to get by without a fifth starter until June 19, at which point Fister would be eligible to return from the DL. The Rangers will presumably wait and see if Fister is ready to resume a throwing program within the next few days before determining whether or not they'll need to add another to the mix temporarily.
