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.
Mar 31 - 1:09 PM

Michael Fulmer fired seven scoreless innings against the Braves in his final Grapefruit League start on Sunday.

Fulmer gave up just two hits and one walk while striking out three. The 25-year-old right-hander finishes the spring with a 2.12 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 17 innings. He's an intriguing middle-round fantasy starter for the 2018 campaign.
Mar 25 - 3:07 PM

Michael Fulmer yielded two runs over five innings in Monday’s Grapefruit League start against the Orioles.

Coming off elbow surgery, Fulmer owns a 3.60 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 10 innings through three starts this spring. He carries appeal as a late-round selection in mixed fantasy leagues. Even if his health doesn’t cooperate, his price tag is much more reasonable this year.
Mar 19 - 5:20 PM

Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire indicated Monday that Michael Fulmer will start the club's second regular-season game on March 31 against the Pirates.

Jordan Zimmermann has already been named the Opening Day starter for Detroit. Fulmer struggled with a minor elbow issue early on in camp, but he threw five strong innings in Monday's Grapefruit League loss to the Orioles and holds a decent 3.60 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 10 total frames this spring.
Mar 19 - 4:16 PM

Michael Fulmer allowed one run over three innings and struck out five Friday against the Mets.

Fulmer has shaken off his latest bout with a sore elbow, but it's always possible that another one is right around the corner. He'll likely be quite good while healthy, though.
Mar 9 - 4:59 PM

Michael Fulmer's (elbow) next Grapefruit League start is scheduled for Friday.

Fulmer's outing on Sunday was scratched due to soreness in the back of his right elbow, but he and the Tigers are convinced that it's no big deal and it sounds like he'll only miss out on one turn. Still, if you have your fantasy draft soon it might be wise to exercise a little caution when considering using a pick on Fulmer.
Mar 5 - 4:29 PM

Michael Fulmer was scratched from his scheduled Grapefruit League start on Sunday due to soreness in the back of his pitching elbow.

The soreness is not related to the ulnar transposition surgery that he underwent last year. For the moment, this is believed to be a minor issue and Fulmer is expected to return to the hill in a couple of days. It is something that is worth monitoring though.
Mar 3 - 9:42 AM

Michael Fulmer allowed one run over two innings of work Monday against the Orioles.

Trey Mancini homered with one out in the first, but that was the only hit that Fulmer allowed today. He struck out two. Fulmer is one to watch this spring, given that he had a couple of red flags last year before opting for season-ending nerve transposition surgery. He's a very good pitcher when healthy, but he's also in a pretty awful situation in Detroit.
Feb 26 - 6:02 PM

Tigers general manager Al Avila told reporters on Wednesday that he expects Michael Fulmer (elbow) to be at full strength at spring training.

Fulmer underwent elbow surgery in September, ending his 2017 campaign. "He's thrown out to 180 feet with no restrictions and no setbacks, so right now he's on track to be 100 percent coming into spring training," Avila said. The 24-year-old right-hander finished last season with a 3.83 ERA and 114 strikeouts in 164 2/3 innings. Assuming he is healthy, he should be the ace of the Detroit staff in 2018.
Jan 24 - 5:10 PM

Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Tigers will only trade Michael Fulmer in a "lopsided" deal.

Every team wants to win a trade, but in the case of dealing Fulmer, it really does only make sense for the Tigers to entertain offers that appear heavily in their favor. Why else would the Tigers trade a 24-year-old cost-controlled right-hander with excellent stuff and an already solid track record? The Yankees and Phillies have reportedly shown interest, but they're likely going to have to give up a substantial amount of prospects to procure his services.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Yankees have Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer and Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin on their radar.

If there's any team that could come up with the sort of package required to motivate the Tigers to move Fulmer, it's the Yankees. Corbin won't be nearly as costly via trade. He made $3.95 million via arbitration in 2017 and is due to become a free agent after 2018.
