DETROIT, MI - OCTOBER 16: Doug Fister #58 of the Detroit Tigers pitches against the Boston Red Sox during Game Four of the American League Championship Series at Comerica Park on October 16, 2013 in Detroit, Michigan.

The Detroit Tigers have traded starting pitcher Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals for three players.

The deal was announced Monday night. The Nationals sent infielder Steve Lombardozzi, left-hander Ian Krol and minor league lefty Robbie Ray to Detroit.

The AL Central champion Tigers have been busy reshaping their roster this offseason. They traded slugger Prince Fielder to Texas and also let All-Star shortstop Jhonny Peralta leave as a free agent for St. Louis.

The 29-year-old Fister was 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA last season. The righty was 32-20 in two-plus seasons with the Tigers and has pitched especially well in the postseason.

Fister joins a talented Nationals rotation that already includes Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann and Gio Gonzalez.
