Tigers acquire Fister and Pauley from Seattle

The Tigers search for a fifth starter finally ended Saturday, when the Tigers pulled off a six-player trade with the Seattle Mariners, acquiring hard-luck starter Doug Fister and reliever David Pauley in return for rookies Charlie Furbush and Casper Wells, as well as minor-league third baseman Francisco Martinez.

The Tigers had not gotten a win out of the fifth spot since mid-June.

According to STATS_MLB, Fister (3-13) got just 10 runs of support in his last 10 starts, a total that 34 starting pitchers since June have received in a single start.
