      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Slowly recovering from knee surgery

      Michael Fulmer is set to meet Wednesday with Dr. James Andrews for a follow-up visit regarding his surgically repaired knee before beginning his rehab at the Detroit Tigers' spring-training complex, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.For the second time in five years, Fulmer required surgery -- Sept. 20 to address a balky right knee, with Andrews repairing the right-hander's damaged meniscus and cleaning up some frayed cartilage. Andrews also performed a modified micro-fracture procedure to stimulate blood flow to the knee, which leaves Fulmer hopeful he'll be back to full strength when pitchers and catchers report for spring training Feb. 12. Given that Fulmer's surgery was slightly more extensive than initially believed, it doesn't look like nearly as much of a lock as it once did that he'll be on the mound when workouts get underway, but his availability for the start of the season shouldn't be seriously threatened. Since taking home American League Rookie of the Year honors in 2016, Fulmer has seen both his ERA and WHIP decline in the subsequent two campaigns.

He struck out five.Fulmer took a line drive to his right shin in his last start, which forced him from the game, but he was able to toss 97 pitches and log a quality start (sort of) Sunday. The 25-year-old has seen his ERA climb in each of his three MLB seasons, as he has a 4.56 mark this season following a 3.06 ERA in 2016 and a 3.83 ERA last year, but he has the talent to have a strong finish to 2018.

      Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Expected to make next start

      Detroit Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said that Michael Fulmer (shin) experienced no complications Tuesday and is on track to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Cardinals, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.The Tigers have an off day Thursday and recently expanded their pitching depth with a slew of September callups, affording them plenty of coverage in the event Fulmer requires additional time off after being struck by a line drive during his start Monday against the White Sox. It appears the team won't have to adjust its rotation plans, however, as Fulmer is expected to throw his normal pre-start bullpen session Thursday or Friday before making his next turn over the weekend. Since returning from the disabled list Aug. 24 after a five-week absence due to an oblique strain, Fulmer has posted a 5.14 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across three starts.
