Fulmer was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Fulmer allowed one run on two hits over one inning in the nightcap and will make his way back to the minors. The 25-year-old has a 6.32 ERA, 1.98 WHIP and 18:14 K:BB in 12 major-league appearances this season.
Fulmer will start Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
With the White Sox dealing with multiple injuries to their starting rotation, Fulmer will get the ball first for what is expected to be a bullpen game Tuesday. In nine relief appearances with the big club this season, Fulmer owns a 6.35 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 13:11 K:BB in 11.1 innings.
Fulmer was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.
Fulmer has made eight appearances at the big-league level this season, recording a 6.97 ERA and an 11:11 K:BB. He owns a much more respectable 3.97 ERA in 22.2 innings for Charlotte. Manny Banuelos (shoulder) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Fulmer was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Tuesday night's win over the Royals.
Fulmer joined the team as the 26th man with Monday's suspended game being completed Tuesday afternoon, though he did not make an appearance. The 25-year-old has struggled in the majors this season with a 6.97 ERA, 2.13 WHIP and 11:11 K:BB through 10.1 innings.
Fulmer is with the White Sox as the 26th man Tuesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The White Sox and Royals aren't quite playing a traditional doubleheader, but they'll still get an extra man as they're finishing up a suspended game from the previous day before playing their normal Tuesday contest. Fulmer will serve as bullpen depth for the second game before likely heading back to the minors.
Fulmer was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Saturday's 15-2 loss to the Red Sox, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Fulmer was the first man out of the bullpen Saturday and allowed five runs (three earned) on two hits and three walks while recording only one out. The 25-year-old had given up five runs over 10 innings entering Saturday but will now head back to Charlotte in favor of a fresh arm.
Fulmer was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
He'll assume the active roster spot of starting pitcher Lucas Giolito (hamstring), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Though Giolito's move to the IL opens up a spot in the rotation, Fulmer won't necessarily be asked to fill the void. Fulmer came up through the system as a starter and made 13 turns with the White Sox between 2017 and 2018, but he transitioned to a relief role in spring training and has been used exclusively out of the bullpen in the majors and at Triple-A this season.
Fulmer was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.
Fulmer's time with the big-league club lasted a matter of hours, as he'd just been recalled earlier in the day. He gave the White Sox three decent innings of relief during those hours, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out three against the Rays. Ervin Santana is expected to be called up ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday in a corresponding move.
Fulmer was recalled by the White Sox on Monday.
Fulmer has been very poor through parts of three major-league seasons, recording a 6.68 ERA and a 58:44 K:BB in 67.1 innings. The White Sox have converted him to the bullpen in hopes on seeing a significant improvement. He'll fill the roster spot vacated by outfielder Ryan Cordell, who was optioned Sunday.
Fulmer was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.
Fulmer will open the season with the Knights after struggling through six spring appearances (8.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP through nine innings). It sounds like the right-hander will continue to work as a reliever. In 11 major-league appearances out of the bullpen, Fulmer has struggled to a 6.62 ERA and 1.47 WHIP through 17.2 innings.
Fulmer is now viewed by the White Sox as a reliever, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Fulmer has made 13 starts and 11 relief appearances thus far in his major-league career but hasn't found much success, posting an ugly 6.68 ERA. He was moved to the pen at Triple-A Charlotte last season but didn't do much of note there either, finishing with an unimpressive 5.32 ERA in 67.2 innings. It may be easier for him to make the majors as a reliever, but he'll need to do considerably better than he has thus far if he's to work his way out of a low-leverage role.
Fulmer has been removed from the rotation at Triple-A Charlotte and is now pitching out of the bullpen, Doug Padilla of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Fulmer opened the season in the White Sox's rotation before he was sent back to Charlotte under the weight of an 8.07 ERA in eight major-league starts. His fortunes didn't improve much with the move to Triple-A, where he was 3-5 with a 5.80 ERA and 32 walks over 45 innings as a starter. Since his move to the bullpen, Fulmer has allowed two runs in five appearances, spanning 6.1 innings. With top pitching prospect Michael Kopech getting closer to the majors and several other starting prospects in the pipeline, Fulmer's transition to reliever may be a permanent move.
Fulmer, who was demoted to Triple-A Charlotte following Friday's game, will work on a mechanical issue, Tom Musick of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Fulmer has been kicking side to side in his delivery instead of straight up and down. "We're trying to clean that up so it's a more direct line," manager Rick Renteria said. "Those are things that he's been trying to work on. That, and with the weight of trying to help win a major-league ballgame on a daily basis, you compound it. Now, instead of bogging him down, we're going to try to alleviate a little bit of that stress." Fulmer will join Charlotte's starting rotation, and the White Sox do not plan to move him to the bullpen.
Fulmer was sent down to Triple-A Charlotte following Friday's game.
Fulmer had another abysmal outing during Friday's start against Texas, allowing eight earned runs off three hits, five walks and two hit batsmen while striking out two across two innings. That marked the third straight start where Fulmer allowed five or more runs and couldn't get past the fourth inning, so manager Rick Renteria decided to take the right-hander out of the rotation for the time being. He will continue to start in Charlotte as he works through his problems.
Fulmer (2-4) gave up eight runs on three hits in two innings of work against the Rangers on Friday. He walked five and struck out two in the loss.
Fulmer had a rough game, congesting the basepaths with five walks and two hit batsmen while throwing just 38 of 75 pitches for strikes. He was pulled in the third after loading the bases with the White Sox down 5-3, and reliever Chris Volstad gave up a grand slam to Shin-Soo Choo to cap his evening. Over his last three starts, Fulmer hasn't made it out of the fourth inning, giving up 17 earned runs in just 7.1 innings. He's put up a 29:24 K:BB in 32.1 innings overall, and opponents are hitting .280 against him. His next scheduled start is a matchup with the Orioles at home.
Fulmer is scheduled to start Friday against the Rangers, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Fulmer was originally scheduled to take his turn in the rotation Wednesday against the Pirates, but given his recent struggles, the White Sox opted to give him a couple of extra days to rest before his next outing. The 24-year-old owns an unsightly 6.23 ERA and 1.75 WHIP across 30.1 innings (eight starts, one relief appearance) this season. If he doesn't turn things around in short order, Fulmer could be headed for a demotion to Triple-A Charlotte with Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) and Carlos Rodon (shoulder) both nearing returns from the DL.
White Sox manager Rick Renteria confirmed that Fulmer would make his next scheduled start Wednesday in Pittsburgh, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Fulmer's back-to-back quality starts April 23 and 28 are beginning to look like major outliers, as the 24-year-old has otherwise been tagged for 22 runs (19 earned) on 27 hits and 15 walks across 17.1 innings in his other six outings (five starts) this season. Despite failing to escape the second inning his last time out Friday against the Cubs, Fulmer hasn't lost the faith of the White Sox skipper just yet, though Renteria's patience has surely been tested. Fulmer will get another chance to prove his worth Wednesday but could be at risk of a demotion to Triple-A Charlotte if he falters again with Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) and Carlos Rodon (shoulder) both nearing returns from the disabled list.
Fulmer (2-3) took the loss against the Cubs on Friday, allowing five runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three over 1.2 innings.
It was more of the same for Fulmer -- he gave up a grand slam to Willson Contreras and has now given up eight long balls in 30.1 innings this season. He's compounded those issues with walks, issuing 19 free passes. The 24-year-old now has a 6.23 ERA and 1.75 WHIP, and while manager Rick Renteria told James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago after the game that Fulmer will make his next start in Pittsburgh, it may only be a matter of weeks before Fulmer is replaced in the rotation by top prospect Michael Kopech.
Fulmer is expected to take his turn in the rotation Friday at Wrigley Field against the Cubs, Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The White Sox are in a stretch in which they have three off days over eight, but manager Rick Renteria plans for the rotation to stay in order. It would be an ideal time to skip a struggling starter like Fulmer after he permitted four home runs in his previous start, but fantasy owners should plan on the rookie and Hector Santiago taking their turns this weekend before James Shields pitches the finale against the Cubs.
Fulmer (2-2) struck out six and walked two in a loss to the Twins on Friday, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 3.2 innings.
Fulmer got beat up by the long ball Friday, giving up a solo shot to Eduardo Escobar in the second and then allowing three more solo homers to Brian Dozier, Logan Morrison and Escobar again in the third. Fulmer has now allowed 16 earned runs in 28.2 innings, bringing his ERA up to 5.02. The six strikeouts were a season high, and he's sporting a 24:15 K:BB on the year. The right-hander's next start will be a matchup with the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
