Fulmer (5-2) allowed just one run on eight hits and a walk while striking out four over seven innings, but he was handed a tough-luck loss Monday in 1-0 defeat in Houston.
Houston's first-inning run was all it needed to capture the victory and hand Fulmer his first loss since April 18. Through his first seven starts, opposing hitters managed a paltry .196 BAA with a 23 percent strikeout rate over 46 innings. However, Fulmer's been a bit off over his last two games, owning a .305 BAA with a 13 percent strikeout rate. Last season's AL Rookie of the Year still maintains phenomenal numbers, ranking in the AL's top-10 for wins, innings (60), ERA (2.55) and WHIP (1.08). Fulmer will toe the rubber next on Saturday versus the White Sox.
Fulmer (5-1) gave up four runs (three earned) on 10 hits over seven innings against Baltimore on Wednesday, but that was good enough for a win. He whiffed four.
Fulmer's gone at least six innings in each of his starts this year, and he's yet to allow more than three earned runs in an outing. Last year's debut was impressive, but he's been even better this season, again outpitching his peripherals to the tune of a 2.72 ERA. The hard-throwing 24-year-old has rapidly developed into one of the more valuable fantasy starters around.
Fulmer (4-1) picked up the win Thursday against the Angels. He pitched seven innings and allowed just a single run on three hits and two walks. He struck out seven.
Fulmer flew through the Angels' lineup, and he now has a 2.54 ERA on the season. Concerns that the young right-hander would regress in his second MLB season haven't come to fruition at all, as Fulmer is actually improving upon the numbers he posted last season as the AL Rookie of the Year. Fulmer lines up to face a dangerous Orioles team at home Wednesday in his next start, but he's pitching well enough to remain in fantasy lineups regardless of the opponent.
The right-hander has done his best to top his strong rookie season, posting a 2.77 ERA with an 8.1 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 over his first 39 innings of 2017. Fulmer also comes off his best start of the year Friday, allowing one run on eight hits and two walks in eight frames, with nine strikeouts.
Fulmer (3-1) went eight innings and picked up the win Friday against Oakland. He struck out nine and allowed two runs (one earned) on eight hits and two walks.
Fulmer had his Thursday start against the Indians bumped back due to rain, and he took advantage of the easier matchup. The reigning AL Rookie of the Year is showing no signs of a sophomore slump, as he now has a 2.77 ERA and 1.05 WHIP through six starts. His K/9 is also up slightly, from 7.47 as a rookie to 8.08 so far in 2017. He lines up for his next start Thursday on the road against the Angels.
