Nationals right-hander Doug Fister completed his first rehab game with Syracuse Sunday afternoon.
Fister, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with forearm tightness on May 15, worked 3 2/3 innings vs. Pawtucket while allowing two runs (including a solo home run), six strikeouts and no walks. He threw 63 pitches, 47 of them for strikes. Reports also say that the velocity on his fastball sat between 82 and 84 mph.
Before the injury, Fister was unable to replicate his success from 2014. He was 2-2 with a 4.31 ERA, and had trouble consistently getting his sinkerball working.
It’s unknown at this point how many more rehab starts Fister will make before he is ready to return to the Nats. Updates to come after the game.
