The Pirates claimed Fulmer off waivers from the Orioles on Monday.

It's been quite a busy year for Fulmer, who failed to make the White Sox's Opening Day roster and has since passed through the Tigers', Pirates' and Orioles' organizations before winding up back in Pittsburgh. The fact that he's been let go by those three teams is a pretty good indicator of where his value stands at the moment. His 6.34 ERA in 105.0 career big-league innings explains why he's a fringe option at best, though he does have a respectable 4.35 ERA and an 11:5 K:BB in 10.1 frames this year.
