Doug Fister’s elbow is feeling better

A little sigh of relief from Nationals camp, where right-hander Doug Fister was able to play catch this morning without any issues after previously being sidelined by elbow soreness.

Fister first complained of soreness in early February and James Wagner of the Washington Post reports that he’s “been treated with anti-inflammatory medicine, ice and rest.” And it’s apparently worked, as an MRI exam showed no structural damage and the Nationals continue to insist they aren’t particularly worried about his status long term.

Whether that means he’ll have enough time to be ready for Opening Day is unclear, but the oft-praised offseason trade to acquire Fister from the Tigers can still pay off in a huge way for the Nationals even if he misses a few regular season starts.

    I just imagine aliens reading these posts. “Doug Fister’s elbow is feeling better.” Good for it. Thanks for the information… Other body parts on other individuals–how are they feeling? Inform us, one body part at a time…
