Recap on the Fister to DC trade from Baseball America

http://www.baseballamerica.com/major...three-players/

Detroit aquires utility man Steve Lombardozzi and a pair of 22-year-old pitchers, Ian Krol and Robbie Ray. Krol was moved to the bullpen in 2012 and reached the Majors last year for the Nats, and BA suggests his presence may allow Detroit to move Smyly into their starting rotation. Ray reached AA last year and was the #5 prospect in Washington's farm system.

All in all, Fister gives the Nats another quality SP for their rotation, but I like this move from Detroit's perspective, too, assuming they are able to lock up Scherzer.
