Consider the stove hot. Or warmed up a bit, at least.

The Texas Rangers reportedly signed free-agent pitcher Doug Fister on Sunday, according to reports from NBC Boston’s Evan Drellich and MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand.

Fister had most recently pitched for the Boston Red Sox in 2017, going 5-9 with a 4.88 ERA over 18 appearances (15 starts). The 33-year-old started Game 3 of the American League Division Series for the Red Sox, but quickly was lifted after giving up three runs over 1 1/3 innings.

The one-year deal is worth $4 million, per SB Nation’s Chris Cotillo.

For all we know, maybe this is the catalyst needed to get the hot stove going.
