The Detroit Tigers are shutting down right-hander Michael Fulmer indefinitely so he can work on his "lower-body mechanics." Fulmer was originally slated to take the mound on Friday in a spring training game but will be replaced. (Detroit Free Press)

Fantasy Impact:

According to manager Ron Gardenhire, "He took a step back to refine his lower-body mechanics. We have no timetable on when he's going to get back on the mound." When asked whether he was dealing with an injury, Gardenhire remained vague, repeating his previous statement. Fulmer has a 7.88 ERA in eight innings of work this spring. He will be tough to trust in fantasy drafts until there is more information available.
