Michael Fulmer could be called up to fill Daniel Norris' spot in the Tigers' starting rotation.
Norris is headed to the disabled list with an oblique strain that he suffered Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. Fulmer, acquired from the Mets in last month's Yoenis Cespedes trade, holds a 1.97 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 107/27 K/BB ratio in 109 2/3 innings this season between High-A and Double-A. The 22-year-old right-hander would be worth consideration in deep mixed fantasy leagues if he does indeed get the call. Aug 20 - 11:06 AM

Tigers RHP prospect Michael Fulmer scattered two hits over 6 2/3 scoreless innings Tuesday in his debut for Double-A Erie.

He hasn't allowed a run in his last three starts, winning all three with 24 strikeouts and only three walks. 64 of the right-hander's 98 pitches Tuesday went for strikes. Fulmer leads the Eastern League with a stellar 1.75 ERA in 92 2/3 innings and has the league's fourth-lowest WHIP (1.08). The 22-year-old came to Detroit last week as part of the Yoenis Cespedes trade.

Tigers acquired RHPs Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa from the Mets in exchange for OF Yoenis Cespedes.

Fulmer is the prize here, as he's bounced back from a disappointing 2014 with a strong 2015, posting a 2.03 ERA while striking out a batter per inning between High- and Double-A. He has a shot to be a nice mid-rotation starter for the Tigers.

Mets RHP prospect Michael Fulmer matched a career-high with nine strikeouts Tuesday in a win for Double-A Binghamton.

Fulmer limited the visiting New Britain Rock Cats to three hits over six shutout innings. The right-hander has been on quite a roll this month. In five July starts, Fulmer is 4-1 with a superb 0.93 ERA. He leads the Eastern League with a 1.88 ERA and has the league's eighth-lowest WHIP at 1.12.

Mets pitching prospect Michael Fulmer had surgery this week to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.

He should be fine for the start of spring training next February. Fulmer, the 44th overall pick in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft, owns a 3.62 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 240/95 K/BB ratio through 258 1/3 career minor league innings. The 21-year-old right-hander will likely open the 2015 season at Double-A Binghamton.

Mets prospect RHP Michael Fulmer allowed four hits and struck out nine batters in six scoreless innings Thursday for High-A St. Lucie.

He walked one batter in the game, which also marked his second scoreless outing in his last three starts. Fulmer showed a lot of promise in his 2012 full-season debut at Low-A Savannah, posting a 2.74 ERA and 101-38 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 108.1 innings. However, he was limited to only 46 innings (34 at High-A St. Lucie) last year after undergoing knee surgery early in the spring. Fully healthy for the 2014 season, the 21-year-old right-hander has shown signs of rust as expected, as he's pitched to a 4.08 ERA and 63-22 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 75 innings (15 starts).

Mets prospect RHP Michael Fulmer allowed three hits and struck out eight in seven scoreless innings Sunday for High-A St. Lucie.

He walked two batters in the outing, which easily was his best of the season. Fulmer showed a lot of promise in his 2012 full-season debut at Low-A Savannah, posting a 2.74 ERA and 101-38 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 108.1 innings. However, he was limited to only 46 innings (34 at High-A St. Lucie) last year after undergoing knee surgery early in the spring. Fully healthy for the 2014 season, the 21-year-old right-hander has shown signs of rust, as he's pitched to a 4.43 ERA and 52-20 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 63 innings (13 starts). That said, his start on Sunday certainly was a step in the right direction.

Mets prospect RHP Michael Fulmer recorded six strikeouts over six shutout innings for the team's Gulf Coast League affiliate on Tuesday.

The start was the first of the season for Fulmer, who had surgery in mid-March to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. The No. 44 overall pick in the 2011 draft turned in an impressive full-season debut in 2012, registering a 2.74 ERA with 101 strikeouts in 108 1/3 innings for Low-A Savannah. The 20-year-old will likely make a few more starts in the rookie leagues before presumably joining one of the team's Class-A affiliates.

Mets prospect right-hander Michael Fulmer will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

It's not a major surgery, but he obviously won't start the season on time at this point. Fulmer, who turns 20 on Friday, had a 2.74 ERA and 101/38 K/BB ratio over 108 1/3 innings last season with Class-A Savannah and was ranked as the organization's No. 7 prospect by Baseball America over the winter.
