VIERA, Fla. -- Right-hander Doug Fister played catch for the third straight day, this time from 120 feet. However, Fister felt a little tightness in his elbow, according to manager Matt Williams, who pointed out that Fister played catch for three days in a row. Some tightness was expected after having time off because of inflammation in the elbow.
However, that will not stop Fister from having a bullpen session on Friday. Fister said he never had elbows problem in the past.
"There are always things here and there. It's nothing major. It's just a little inflammation, a little soreness," Fister said. "I want to nip it in the bud right now and alleviate it from happening during the season."
