      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Solid in MLB debut

      Fullmer allowed seven hits, one walk and two earned runs in 5.0 innings in a win Friday over the Twins. He struck out four. It was a solid outing for Fullmer, who relied heavily on his fastball and slider, his best pitches. Only one of the seven hits went for extra bases (double). Nice debut.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Recalled from Triple-A Friday

      Fulmer was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday and will start in Friday's game against the Twins. Fulmer will pitch in place of Shane Greene who was placed on the 15-day DL with a right middle finger blister. The 23-year-old has a mediocre 4.11 ERA through three games at Triple-A but has a tremendous 11.92 K/9 and will have a great matchup against the Twins, who rank 25th in runs scored and fourth in strikeouts on the season.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Will start for Tigers on Friday

      Fulmer will be called up to start Friday against the Twins, Chris Iott of MLive.com reports. Fulmer will jump from Triple-A Toledo into the Tigers' rotation of Shane Greene, who will be placed on the disabled list due to a blister. That could mean several starts with the big league club for Fulmer with Greene out at least a couple weeks. Greene's numbers on the season aren't pretty, but he could get a shot to start again when healthy. However, Fulmer is one of the Tigers' top prospects, so he could make the team's'decision a difficult one if he excels in Green's absence. Fulmer struck out 145 batters over his last 140 minor league innings, so he has some potential in the strikeout category.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Could be called up soon

      Fulmer could be called up in the near future, according to John Wagner of the Toledo Blade. Fulmer is listed as the scheduled starter for Thursday's game with Triple-A Toledo, but he was seen being congratulated by teammates following Wednesday's contest, which signals he could called up to Detroit for the first time in the coming days. If he is indeed called up, he could jump into the rotation Friday in place of Shane Greene, who is dealing with a blister. Fulmer owns a 4.11 ERA and has racked up 20 strikeouts over 15.1 innings in three starts with Toledo this season.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Dominant to begin season

      Fulmer, 23, has a 0.82 ERA and 14:4 K:BB ratio through 11 innings for Triple-A Toledo. Often forgotten as a member of the Mets' system, Fulmer is now the top prospect for the Detroit Tigers, and has pitched like it since being traded for Yoenis Cespedes. He could be a Justin Verlander injury away from making his MLB debut.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Optioned to Toledo

      Fulmer was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, the Detroit Free Press reports. As expected, Fulmer will open the year with the Toledo Mud Hens. The Tigers simply weren't able to find innings for their No. 1 prospect as a starter, though he's a candidate to be called up later in the year in the event of an injury or roster shakeup.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Could be in the mix for bullpen role

      Fulmer will be stretched out as a starter, but could be in the mix for a bullpen role, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Fulmer hasn't appeared in a level above Double-A so far in his career, but his results are good enough to think he could hold his own in a bullpen role. It would cost him some development time as a starter though, which the Tigers likely don't want to do with their key return from the Yoenis Cespedes trade. Whatever happens could end up being dictated by what is needed in the Tiger bullpen.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Lands on 40-man roster

      Fulmer was added to the Tigers' 40-man roster Friday. Fulmer, one of the pieces acquired through the David Price trade, was excellent in his limited time with Double-A Erie, recording a 2.84 ERA and 1.09 WHIP coupled with a 33:7 K:BB in 31.2 innings. However, he's unlikely to make any noise with the Tigers this year, so it seems likely this move was made in order to protect him from being selected in the upcoming Rule 5 Draft.
