Fister To Disabled List; Roark, Jordan Make 25-Man Roster

The news shouldn’t surprise anyone based on the news coming out of Viera yesterday about Doug Fister’s lat strain, but Fister will start the season on the 15-day disabled list. Because of that, Tanner Roark and Taylor Jordan, who were both competing for the fifth spot in the Nationals’ rotation, will be on the 25-man roster on Opening Day. What’s more: one of those two will likely make the start on April 4th, the Nats home opener.
