Fister will make his return start on Saturday when the Tigers host the Colorado Rockies at Comerica Park. His last appearance came on May 28 against the Boston Red Sox when he allowed six runs on 11 hits in five innings pitched. Fister will look to record his first win of the season, as he is 0-3 in six starts this year.
