Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo talks about last night's trade for Doug Fister, plus what it means for Ross Detwiler, Anthony Rendon and Danny Espinosa.
In Doug Fister, the Nationals got the reliable starting pitcher they desired, without having to pay a steep price.
The Nationals re-signed right-hander Ross Ohlendorf for $1.25 million and tendered contracts to eight other arbitration-eligible players before Monday night's deadline.
The Nationals made a bold trade to boost their rotation, acquiring Doug Fister from Detroit for Steve Lombardozzi, Ian Krol and Robbie Ray.
The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired catcher Chris Stewart from the New York Yankees on Monday for a player to be named.
