Tigers land Fister from Mariners
Pauley also to Detroit for Furbush, Wells, prospect Martinez

Already known to be looking for a starting pitcher, the Tigers reportedly found one on Saturday morning, a day before the non-waiver Trade Deadline passes.

Then they checked bullpen help off their list, too.

Detroit has acquired right-handed starter Doug Fister and right-handed reliever David Pauley from the Mariners, according to CBS Sports' Danny Knobler. Knobler reported the deal includes right-hander Charlie Furbush, outfielder Casper Wells and third-base prospect Francisco Martinez as pieces headed to Seattle.

Fister, 27 and in his third big league season, has a 3.33 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP despite his 3-12 record. He's not a strikeout pitcher, with just 89 in 146 innings, but he also walks very few, with an average of 1.97 per nine innings this season.

Pauley, 28, has a 2.15 ERA in 39 appearances and 54 1/3 innings, with just two home runs allowed. He's struck out 34 and walked 16.

"I look at it like Christmas," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said of the Deadline on Wednesday. "If you get something, good. If you don't, you survive."

Part of the value of Pauley and Fister is that both are under team control until 2015.

Wells, 26, is hitting .257 with four home runs and a .323 on-base percentage in 64 games this season. Furbush, a 25-year-old rookie and a fourth-round pick in 2007, is 1-3 with a 3.62 ERA in 32 1/3 innings and 17 appearances, two of which were starts.

Martinez, a 20-year-old from Venezuela, is hitting .282 with seven home runs in 91 games at Double-A Erie. He signed with the Tigers in 2007.
