Angels sign Fister to fortify staff
NEW YORK >> Looking to reinforce an injury-ravaged pitching staff, the Los Angeles Angels signed Doug Fister for the remainder of the season on Saturday.
Fister will report to extended spring training in Arizona to begin workouts. He was a free agent after going 12-13 with a 4.64 ERA in 32 starts for Houston last year. The 6-foot-8 righty threw 1801⁄3 innings and pitched pretty well most of the season before fading badly in September and losing his last five decisions.
