Doug Fister passed tests with flying colors after being hit in the head in Game 2 of the World Series.

Doug Fister has passed all tests with flying colors and is completely healthy moving forward after being hit in the head by a comebacker during Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday.

Tigers Manager Jim Leyland told Jason Beck of MLB.com: "Fister took and passed every test with flying colors. So he's fine."

Fister was hit on the right side of the head on a line drive off the bat of Gregor Blanco in the second inning of Game 2. Fister was looked at by the team trainer and remained in the game, allowing four hits and one earned run in six innings of work. Fister is scheduled to pitch in Game 6 of the World Series should the series go that far.

Fister is 0-1 this post-season in three starts. He has a 1.40 ERA with 16 strikeouts in 19.1 innings. Fister was 10-10 in the regular season with a 3.45 ERA and 137 strikeouts.
