Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Officially placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers placed Fulmer (elbow) on the Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press Saturday.

The transaction creates an opening on the 40-man roster for Gordon Beckham, who has emerged as the victor in the spring job battle for the top utility infield job with the Tigers. Per Chris McCosky of The Detroit News, Fulmer is slated to undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday and will be sidelined for the entire 2019 season and quite likely, a sizable portion of the 2020 campaign.

Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Will undergo Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A third opinion on Fulmer's injured elbow confirmed the previous two diagnoses, and he has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Fulmer had trouble with his velocity and mechanics earlier in camp, but he felt discomfort after a recent bullpen session and underwent an MRI, which revealed the tear in his elbow ligament. So, instead of preparing for the regular season, he will undergo surgery in the near future and miss the entire season, and likely part of the 2020 campaign as well. A better estimate at Fulmer's return timetable should be revealed after the procedure is completed.

Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Tommy John surgery recommended
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fulmer is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Fulmer's velocity had been considerably down this spring, yet the news still comes as a surprise, as he'd been reportedly dealing with a mechanical issue and a potential knee injury. Elbow concerns hadn't been mentioned, but he's had two doctors recommend the surgery and will now seek a third opinion. Assuming he does indeed go through with the procedure, Fulmer would miss all of 2019 and at least a few months of 2020 as well.

Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fulmer completed a bullpen session Friday morning without a knee brace, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Fulmer has apparently been bothered by a knee issue which helps to explain his drop in velocity this spring and why the team opted to shut him down to refine his lower-body mechanics. The 26-year-old is still working to regain the explosiveness to his delivery as his status for Opening Day is in severe doubt.

Tigers' Michael Fulmer: Shut down to work on mechanics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fulmer has been shut down as he attempts to refine his lower-body mechanics, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. "We have no timetable for when he's going to get back on the mound," manager Ron Gardenhire said.

His velocity has been way down this spring, sitting in the 89-91 mph range with his fastball, which is a stark contrast to the mid-90s fastball he displayed in past years when he was at his best. The fact that the team is labeling it as a shut down puts his availability for the start of the season in significant jeopardy. Obviously the first priority will be to get him right, so he should be considered out indefinitely.
