Doug Fister going to the 15 day DL

The Detroit Tigers are one of the favorites to win the World Series. You have to be good to accomplish the feat, but you also have to be lucky. Which means staying injury free.

Today the Tigers' Doug Fister had to leave the game in the fourth inning of their 10-0 win over the Boston Red Sox.

Fister had to leave because of a  left costochondral strain. A rib strain for those not in the medical profession. Fister was placed on the 15 day disabled list and the Tigers called up reliever Brayan Villarreal from Toledo.

The Tigers should hope this is the exception and not the rule for the season.
