Players In Doug Fister Trade: Charlie Furbush, Casper Wells, Francisco Martinez

The Detroit Tigers traded for Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Doug Fister and reliever David Pauley on Saturday, a deal that gives the Tigers a cheap and effective starting pitcher for the next couple seasons, with a good amount of potential going to the Mariners.

A great FanPost at Lookout Landing by David Tokarz, a contributor to Bless You Boys, gives some information about the players going to Seattle (or Tacoma, or Jackson, or Adelanto, or ...). There is also a player to be named later going to the Mariners in the deal:

On Francisco Martinez:

A young, toolsy third baseman out of Venezuela, Martinez was pushed quickly (he's in AA as a 20 year old this year) but has reacted to the challenge admirably. He's got quick bat speed and the line drives tend to fly off his bat

On Charlie Furbush:

Furbush rocketed through the farm system last year with really good numbers, especially in the strikeout department. Don't let that fool you; his ceiling is that of a #4 starter or a long reliever/swingman type.

On Casper Wells:

Wells is a really good piece- he's a little old for a prospect, but entering his prime. Earlier this year, as an extra outfielder, he created 1 WAR in 125 plate appearances and various appearances as a defensive replacement.

There's plenty more in the FanPost, so head on over and get all the Fister/Furbush in that the law allows.
