It was the worst kept secret in baseball that the Tigers were trying to add a starting pitcher, and it appears they've achieved that goal on Saturday morning.
Fister, 27, had just a 3-13 record, however, has posted a 3.33 ERA in 21 starts this year with 89 strikeouts and 32 walks.
Pauley, 28, is 5-4 with a 2.15 ERA in 39 appearances for the Mariners spanning 54 1/3 innings. He's also struck out 34 and walked 13.
Furbush had been moving back and forth between Detroit and Toledo, as well as the rotation and the bullpen in Detroit. He was 1-3 with a 3.62 ERA in Detroit.
Wells was hitting .257 with a .774 OPS for the Tigers when he was sent down to Toledo. A good defender with pop, Wells did not seem to be a priority for the Tigers as he frequently gave up playing time to Andy Dirks and Don Kelly among reserve outfielder time.
The prize of the deal may be Martinez though, a 20-year old third base prospect who was making a run at being a top 100 prospect in all of baseball this fall. In 348 at-bats for Double-A Erie, Martinez was hitting .282 with seven home runs and 14 doubles.
No word yet on the final player in the deal.
