Watch Now:

Fulmer (neck) will toss one inning for Triple-A Toledo on Sunday and is set to rejoin the Tigers on Monday in Minnesota, at which point he could be activated, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Fulmer has been out since June 27 but it sounds like his return is imminent. Once he joins the team Monday, he'll go through a full pregame workout before the medical staff makes a final decision. Even if he's not activated Monday, Fulmer should return early in the week assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Gregory Soto leads the Tigers with 11 saves, but Fulmer and his six saves should work back into the late-inning equation. The fact that he's a righty and Soto is a lefty could allow manager A.J. Hinch to mix and match in save situations depending on matchups.
