Fister? Furbush? WTF…
The Tigers, in need of fortifying their starting rotation, acquired starter Doug Fister and reliever David Pauley from the Seattle Mariners Saturday, a high-ranking Tigers’ official confirmed. The official was not authorized to speak publicly.
The Mariners will receive left-handed pitcher Charlie Furbush, minor league third baseman Francisco Martinez, minor-league outfielder Casper Wells and a player to be named, according to the official.
Fister, 27, has been a workhorse for the Mariners. He is averaging 6.95 innings a start, and is yielding a 3.33 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 21 starts. He has been victimized by poor run support, with the Mariners scoring just 17 runs in his last 10 starts. Pauley is yielding a 2.15 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 39 games.
