Apr 29 - 4:49 PM

Michael Fulmer earned his second victory of the year, punching out seven over seven innings of two-run baseball against the Twins on Sunday.

The reigning Rookie of the Year allowed just four hits and a walk on the day. The Twins scored a run in the first inning on an RBI single by Miguel Sano and tacked on another on Eddie Rosario's solo homer in the fifth, but Fulmer was in complete command otherwise.

The young right-hander struck out seven and issued just one walk while allowing four total hits. He'll carry a cool 2.25 ERA into his next start on the road against the Rays.

Fulmer was excellent in the Tigers' home opener, yielding just four hits and two walks while striking out four.

The right-hander will go up against the Twins the next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 7 - 6:16 PM

Michael Fulmer threw 50 pitches against Tigers' minor leaguers in a tune-up appearance on Sunday.

Fulmer threw 174 1/3 innings between the majors and minors en route to winning the AL Rookie of the Year last season, so the Tigers decided to take it easy with him this spring. He was one start behind the other starters, which is why he had one final tuneup outing before leaving camp. "It was just a tune-up for me, but honestly, it was probably the best I felt all spring," Fulmer told Chris McCosky of the Detroit News. "The ball was coming out good. I felt like I was keeping everything down and located. I needed that. I needed to see my ball do what I need it to do." Fulmer is slated to make his season debut on Friday against the Red Sox.
