Jerry Crasnick and others are reporting that the Tigers are making progress on a deal with the Mariners. The Tigers would be getting starting pitcher Doug Fister and perhaps a reliever. Danny Knobler thinks that the Tigers would have to include left-hander Charlie Furbush as part of the deal.
Since the Mariners need offense, I will speculate that Andy Dirks or Casper Wells might also be involved. What reliever might the Tigers receive? Maybe David Pauley but again that's just speculation.
The other big news of the morning is that Jacob Turner has been recalled from Erie to start today's game. He will probably just get one start, especially if they complete a deal for Fister or somebody else.
