Michael Fulmer will start Thursday against the Indians, Chris Iott of MLive.com reports.
Fulmer made his major league debut Friday, going five innings with four strikeouts while allowing just two runs en route to earning the win. With Shane Greene (finger) on the disabled list, Fulmer will continue filling in at the back end of the Detroit rotation.
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.
Michael 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.
Michael 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 Detroit 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.
Michael 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.
