Nats scratch Fister with inflamed elbow

VIERA, Fla. (AP) - Washington Nationals righthander Doug Fister was scratched from his scheduled start Friday against the Houston Astros because of inflammation in his elbow.

Nationals manager Matt Williams says he'll ''push him (back) a couple of days, just to make sure; get it out of there.''

Fister, acquired in an offseason trade with the Detroit Tigers, threw 30 pitches over two innings on Sunday in his spring debut. Williams says Fister felt discomfort in his right elbow after the game.

He had an MRI on Thursday.

Williams says ''we're not concerned about it,'' but at the same time, ''not going to take any chances.''

The Nationals will start Tanner Roark against the Astros.
