Fister OK after skin-cancer removal in neck
By Daniel Popper
WASHINGTON — Nationals starter Doug Fister told the media Friday night that the stitches on the right side of his neck resulted from skin-cancer removal he underwent “a couple days ago.”
Fister surrendered four earned runs over six innings in Washington’s 10-3 loss to Giants on Friday — the most runs he’s allowed since June 15. But the right-hander said after the game that the procedure and subsequent wound on his neck did not influence his performance, and he’s “good” moving forward.
“It had no effect tonight,” Fister said.
