  • Fulmer (2-2) allowed one run on a hit and a walk to get credited with a blown save Monday against the Rays, though he was able to earn the win. Fulmer started the bottom of the eighth inning out with a strikeout, but got into some trouble by allowing a double and a walk with one out. He then tossed a wild pitch, and the lead runner would later score on a sacrifice fly to tie the game at 2-2, though the Tigers would score in the top of the ninth to go back ahead. Fulmer has now blown two saves this season to go with his 3.14 ERA, and while closer Gregory Soto has seemingly been on thin ice lately, the latter did wrap up Monday's contest with a clean ninth inning. For now, Fulmer should stick in a setup role, with Soto the top option for saves in Detroit.

  • Fulmer (1-2) allowed two runs on a hit and a walk across an inning of work to take the loss Thursday against the Athletics. He struck out one. Fulmer allowed his first home run of the season in the eighth inning, a two-run blast by Seth Brown, which broke open a 3-3 tie. The righty still has a solid 2.70 ERA, but with the 9-23 Tigers struggling to score many runs, the margin for error is thin for all of the team's pitchers. Despite the hiccup, Fulmer should remain an important reliever in Detroit, typically working in front of closer Gregory Soto.

  • Fulmer, who pitched 1.2 scoreless innings of relief in Saturday's win over the Dodgers, has yet to allow a run this season across 9.1 innings. Fulmer was effective again Saturday and recorded his third hold of the season in the 5-1 Detroit victory. The righty also has one win and one save, which has boosted his fantasy value. Gregory Soto is still the primary closer, but Fulmer certainly has an important role in the Tigers' bullpen and will remain a solid fantasy asset if he keeps pitching like this.

  • Fulmer picked up the save Friday, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning during a 2-1 win in Kansas City. After Gregory Soto received both of Detroit's save opportunities to start the season and pitched in three of the prior four games, manager A.J. Hinch called upon Fulmer to get the final three outs Friday. The righty needed just 11 pitches to retire the side in order and finished the night by striking out Hunter Dozier on three pitches. Fulmer, the 2016 American League Rookie of the Year as a starter, was second on the Tigers last season with 14 saves and is next in line should Soto falter.

  • Fulmer (1-0) worked around a hit to pitch a scoreless inning of relief and earn the win Monday against the Red Sox. He struck out one. Fulmer was second on the Tigers with 14 saves last season, but he also scooped up five wins out of the bullpen. Gregory Soto earned the save Monday and should see the bulk of the chances this year, so Fulmer will have to typically settle for holds and the occasional win while working in the eighth inning. That limits the righty's fantasy appeal a bit, though things could change if he overtook Soto for the closer role.
