2010

In 2010, Fister started the first game for the Mariners in spring training. Going into the season, Fister, and fellow starting pitchers Garrett Olson, Luke French and Jason Vargas competed for the Mariners' fifth spot in the starting rotation. Fister ended up getting a job in the rotation (as did Vargas). On April 19, Fister took a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Baltimore Orioles until it was broken up by Nick Markakis' leadoff single. Although the Mariners suffered early season woes, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer praised Fister and fellow starter Jason Vargas as reasons for why the Mariners were not doing worse, stating, "If Doug Fister and Jason Vargas hadn't been excellent at the back end of the rotation, God knows where this club would be."

Fister threw four pitches, and was mainly a groundball pitcher. His two seam fastball was thrown at 88–91 miles per hour (142–146 km/h). His other pitches were a cutter (85–87 miles per hour (137–140 km/h)), a curveball (73–79 miles per hour (117–127 km/h)), and a changeup (80–84 miles per hour (129–135 km/h)). The curveball was his best swing-and-miss pitch, with a career whiff rate of over 30%. Fister finished third and fourth in 2010 and 2011, respectively, in lowest walks per nine innings ratio.

On July 30, 2011, Fister was traded to the Detroit Tigers along with relief pitcher David Pauley in exchange for Casper Wells, Charlie Furbush, Francisco Martinez, and a player to be named later.

Before being dealt to the Detroit Tigers, Fister had a 3–12 record with a 3.33 ERA in 21 starts.

Fister was injury-free in 2013, making 32 starts for the Tigers. He set career highs in wins (14), win percentage (14-9, .609) and strikeouts (159), while finishing the regular season with a 3.67 ERA.

Following the 2013 season, Fister was named a finalist for the Gold Glove Award for the pitcher position alongside Mark Buehrle and R.A. Dickey.
