Detroit Tigers: Doug Fister Makes Sense as Hypothetical Depth Piece

Detroit Tigers fans remember Doug Fister well from his time in the Motor City.

The veteran starting pitcher joined Detroit at the trade deadline in 2011 and stayed with the franchise through the end of the 2013 campaign.

Detroit initially acquired Fister in a lopsided trade with the Seattle Mariners.

Then general manager Dave Dombrowski flipped prospects Francisco Martinez and Chance Ruffin, as well as Charlie Furbush and Casper Wells, to Seattle.

Fister would go on to post an 8-1 record with a 1.79 ERA in 70.
