The Washington Nationals made one of the best moves of the offseason when they acquired Doug Fister from the Detroit Tigers. By adding Fister to the top four of their starting rotation, the Nationals look like one of the teams to beat in the National League in 2014.
Washington has a number of pitchers that will be fighting for the fifth spot in the rotation, including Tanner Roark, Ross Detwiler, Taylor Jordan and Nate Karns. Additionally, A.J. Cole could earn a call-up later this season.
With all of this starting pitching, the Nationals can afford to make a deal or two. Ross Detwiler could end up being the odd man out in Washington. He has pitched well throughout his career and owns a 3.79 ERA over 408 innings.
Detwiler could be a good back-of-the-rotation option for a team that is looking for another starter to fill out their staff.
