WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Holden and Danny will be joined by newest Washington National, pitcher Doug Fister, Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. on 106.7 The Fan.

In 33 games (32 starts) in 2013, the 6-foot-8, 29-year-old Fister went 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA.
Fister also ranked among American League leaders in home runs allowed per 9 innings (0.60 – 2nd), ground ball-to-fly-ball ratio (2.17/1 – 3rd), walks per 9 innings (1.90 – 4th), wins (14 – tied for 8th), strikeout-to-walk-ratio (3.61/1 – 9th), and quality starts (22 – tied for 9th) in his last three season with Detroit.
He went 32-20 with a 3.29 ERA in two-plus seasons (Aug. 2011-2013) with the Tigers.
He was also 3-2 with a 2.98 ERA in eight postseason games (7 starts) with the Tigers, who won six of Fister’s seven playoff starting assignments.
