Michael Fulmer pitched well in Thursday's victory over the Twins, scattering five hits over seven innings of one-run baseball.
The right-hander struck out four and walked one on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Eduardo Escobar in the first inning. He has been maddeningly inconsistent this season, but the talent has always been there. He'll look to further improve upon his 4.13 ERA and 1.26 WHIP when he does battle against the Reds in Cincinnati on Wednesday. Jun 14 - 6:22 PM

Michael Fulmer pitched well in a no-decision against the Indians on Friday, allowing just one run on five hits over seven strong innings.

The right-hander punched out seven on the night and didn't walk a batter in what was one of his strongest efforts this season. The only damage against him came on an RBI double by Yonder Alonso in the fourth inning. Fulmer will carry a 4.40 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Twins. While he has been inconsistent this season, as long as he's healthy he's still worth starting in mixed leagues for most matchups.
Jun 8 - 9:57 PM

Michael Fulmer pitched six innings and allowed four runs in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Fulmer walked three and struck out three; and gave up a two-run homer to Justin Smoak in the sixth to turn a so-so start into a disappointing one. He’s now allowed nine homers in his 12 starts, and his ERA on the 2018 season now sits at 4.73. He’ll look to bounce back on Friday when he faces the Indians.
Jun 3 - 4:18 PM

Michael Fulmer was tagged for five runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Angels on Tuesday

Fulmer finishes May 1-2 with a 6.32 ERA in six starts. He's likely to remain of limited use in mixed leagues unless he gets traded to a better team.
May 29 - 11:01 PM

Michael Fulmer scattered four hits and one run over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Tigers’ win over Minnesota.

He fanned five and walked three over a season-high 113 pitches. Fulmer gave up two hits and a run in the first inning but settled down after that, allowing just two more hits the rest of the way. Wednesday’s victory was Fulmer’s first since April 7. He’ll try to make it two straight when he takes the mound Tuesday against the Angels.
May 23 - 6:15 PM

Michael Fulmer was charged with three runs in 6 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Mariners.

Fulmer pitched shutout ball for six before giving up two walks and a two-run single to the four batters he faced in the seventh. What had been a 4-0 lead quickly turned into a 5-4 deficit from there, and the Tigers lost by the same score. That's too bad for Fulmer, who had allowed just two singles and no walks through six frames.
May 19 - 1:12 AM

Michael Fulmer struggled in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mariners, allowing six runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss.

It was a pair of homers, a two-run homer by Ryon Healy and a three-run shot by Robinson Cano, that did most of the damage. The start was the second subpar showing in a row for Fulmer, who fell to 1-3 with a 4.37 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with the loss. It's disheartening but not a reason to bail on the right-hander at this point. He'll look for better days when the Tigers head to Seattle for a rematch late next week.
May 13 - 12:11 AM

Michael Fulmer yielded five runs in 5 2/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Rangers.

It was one run in five innings, but the sixth went badly. After Fulmer was able to bounce back to get two outs after a leadoff walk, he gave up a single and two doubles before being pulled. He's still stuck on one win after seven starts.
May 7 - 11:42 PM

Michael Fulmer yielded six hits and two runs over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday in Detroit’s win over the Rays.

He walked two and struck out five while throwing 70 of his 109 pitches for strikes. Fulmer also hit a batter. The right-hander scuffled early, surrendering a run in each of his first two innings. He settled down after that, blanking Tampa over his last four frames. All six hits he allowed were singles. Fulmer has compiled a stellar 2.80 ERA this season but only has one win to show for it. The former AL Rookie of the Year will make his next start Monday at Texas.
May 2 - 6:42 PM

Michael Fulmer shut out the Pirates for six innings and struck out nine in a no-decision Thursday.

It turned out to be the second time already this season that Fulmer was on the wrong side of a 1-0 game against the Pirates. He's pitched well enough to win four times in five starts, but he has a 1-2 record to show for his 2.76 ERA. That figures to be a problem for him all year, assuming that he isn't traded to a contender in July.
Apr 26 - 3:32 PM

Michael Fulmer limited the Royals to two runs over seven innings of work in Friday's 3-2 extra-innings victory.

Fulmer served up a solo bomb to Mike Moustakas in the sixth inning and a game-tying RBI single to Jon Jay in the seventh. There were two of eight hits he permitted on the day, and he walked one and struck out four. It was a nice bounce-back performance after the right-hander was pummeled by the Indians his last time out. Fulmer goes up against the Pirates in Pittsburgh next.
Apr 20 - 5:31 PM

Michael Fulmer allowed nine runs -- six earned -- on eight hits over three-plus innings in a loss to the Indians on Thursday.

Fulmer didn't bring much to the table, but his Tigers defense didn't help him out, either, making three errors that led to three unearned runs for the Indians. He did manage to avoid walking anyone despite hitting Francisco Lindor, and he struck out two. It was his second loss of the year but his first real poor performance after two strong outings his first two times out. Fulmer will carry a 3.86 ERA into Wednesday's contest against the Orioles.
Apr 12 - 9:15 PM

Michael Fulmer tossed 5 1/3 shutout innings in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Fulmer fanned four, walked three and allowed six hits over his 5 1/3 frames of work. He's been dynamite through two starts, having now allowed just one run on 10 hits over 13 1/3 frames. The 25-year-old right-hander will try to keep on this roll when the Tigers hit the road to take on the Indians in his next scheduled outing.
Apr 7 - 6:16 PM

Michael Fulmer allowed just one run in his eight innings in a loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

Fulmer gave up just four hits, and he walked two while striking out three. He didn't miss many bats in this one, but Fulmer threw a solid game, and deserved better than the loss in this one. He's the one Tigers' starter with fantasy value, and he'll make his next start on Thursday in Chicago against the White Sox.
Apr 1 - 3:48 PM

Saturday's game between the Tigers and Pirates has been postponed due to rain.

It will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Sunday. Saturday's scheduled starters, Trevor Williams and Michael Fulmer, will presumably work in the first game of Sunday's twin bill.
