Fister's treatment continues, no timetable set
CHICAGO -- Doug Fister, whose spot in the Tigers' rotation would have been Saturday had he not strained a left rib-cage muscle, continues to receive treatment to alleviate the soreness. Until they make progress in that, he won't be going on a throwing program.

Head athletic trainer Kevin Rand provided the update Saturday, which was essentially the same status as Fister has had since the injury. That doesn't necessarily mean it'll be a long-term absence, but the Tigers will not have a timetable on Fister's return until that soreness goes away.
