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.
Fulmer was activated by the Orioles on Tuesday. Fulmer was claimed by the team on Sept. 5 and is now officially active on the roster. The Orioles are his fourth team this season, as he's also appeared on the roster of the Tigers, White Sox and Pirates. He's likely to serve as bullpen depth in Baltimore.
Fulmer was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Saturday. Fulmer was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Wednesday after he failed to make an appearance with the team. He's out of major-league options, so he'll join the 28-man roster upon his addition and should play a lower-leverage role in the bullpen.
Fulmer was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Wednesday. Fulmer finds himself designated for the third time this season, as he was waived by the White Sox after failing to make their Opening Day roster and subsequently claimed and cut by the Tigers less than a month later. The Pirates claimed him in late August, but he didn't wind up making a single appearance for the team. The move creates a spot on the active roster for Joe Musgrove (triceps) to return from the injured list.
Fulmer was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Monday. He had a 6.75 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 7:3 K:BB in 6.2 innings over seven appearances before getting designated for assignment by the Tigers last week. The No. 8 overall pick by the White Sox in 2015, Fulmer has a career 6.57 ERA in 101.1 MLB innings. Fulmer is out of minor-league options, so he'll presumably join the Pirates' 28-man active roster within the next few days and work in low-leverage spots out of the bullpen.
