23. Doug Fister Trade. Dombrowski at His Worst.

Dave Dombrowski was loved by fans for his big trades and acquisitions. Unfortunately for DD, his tenure with the Tigers will forever be tainted by the awful “Doug Fister Trade.” This trade in December 2013 sent pitcher Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals. In his place, the Tigers received Robbie Ray, Ian Krol, and Steve Lombardozzi. These three men are no longer with the team. Krol eventually turned into Shane Greene and he is the only remaining piece of the trade. In 2015, Shane Green started out strong, then completely fell apart due to an injury in his elbow that left his hand feeling numb. At this point, Greene is not a part of the rotation and his role in the bullpen in uncertain. This was definitely not one of DD’s best moment.
