Doug Fister set to face Angels days after getting claimed by the Red Sox

At Fenway Park on Sunday, the Boston Red Sox will start veteran right-hander Doug Fister , the man they claimed off of waivers from the Angels on Friday.

To oppose him, the Angels will start rookie right-hander Parker Bridwell , the man they chose to remain in their rotation instead of Fister.

While recovering from an injury, Angels reliever Huston Street spent more than a week with Fister between triple-A and extended spring training .

Requiring another arm to pitch out of the bullpen, the Angels recalled right-hander Eduardo Paredes from triple-A Salt Lake and demoted first baseman C.J.

The Red Sox retired David Ortiz ’s number in a pregame ceremony and draped the Dominican Republic’s flag over the Green Monster during the country’s anthem.
