Fister scheduled to throw side session Thursday
Finally, there are signs on progress again in Doug Fister’s injury situation. The Tigers right-hander, sidelined since the first weekend of the season with a strained left rib cage muscle, played catch on Wednesday is now scheduled to have a mound session Thursday morning.
It’ll be the first time Fister has thrown off a mound since last week in Kansas City, where he felt pain again in that left side while throwing another side session. Since then, the Tigers have been relatively cautious about his progress, though manager Jim Leyland sounded upbeat after Fister underwent treatment on Monday.
