    • Rangers' Doug Fister: Shifts to 60-day DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Rangers transferred Fister (knee) to the 60-day disabled list Sunday. The extent of the strained right knee Fister suffered during his June 8 outing still isn't fully known, but the Rangers evidently determined that the injury was serious enough to sideline him for at least two months. In addition to depleting Texas' already porous rotation, Fister's injury likely closes the door on the Rangers selling him to a contending club at the July 31 trade deadline. With Fister joining Martin Perez (elbow) on the 60-day DL, newly promoted starters Yohander Mendez and Yovani Gallardo should both have the opportunity to make multiple turns through the rotation for the big club.

    • Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that Fister (knee), who was placed on the disabled list Sunday, would be sidelined for longer than the minimum 10 days, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports. Fister has already spent time on the DL this season due to a hip issue, so the Rangers will let the right-hander take some time off to recover while he battles another lower-body injury. Thanks to a pair of off-days during the upcoming week, the Rangers won't require a replacement for Fister in the rotation until June 19 against the Royals, so look for the team to get by with a four-man rotation for the time being.

    • 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.

    • Rangers' Doug Fister: Team awaits MRI results
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Rangers are still waiting on the results of an MRI on Fister's right knee, Adam Grosbard of the Dallas Morning News reports. Manager Jeff Banister spoke with Fister on Saturday and said the right-hander was "not feeling great." The Rangers have some time before making a decision, as Fister is not scheduled to pitch again until Friday against Colorado.

    • Fister (1-7) allowed five runs on six hits in a loss to the Astros on Friday, striking out two and walking two in five innings. Fister (who left the game in the sixth with an apparent knee injury) gave up a four-spot in the second inning, which was too much to surrender in a matchup against Houston starter Justin Verlander. Fister has thrown five quality starts -- out of 12 total starts -- on the year, and currently holds a 4.50 ERA and 1.39 WHIP while opponents are hitting .278 off the veteran. He'll look for his second win of the season in his next start against the Rockies at home.
