SP - PIT
Carson Fulmer was claimed off waivers by the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
Fulmer was released by the Chicago White Sox before the start of the season and was quickly claimed by division-rival Detroit. He was the White Sox first round pick (No. 8 overall) back in 2015 but was never able to latch on with the club. Fulmer has a 6.56 ERA, 1.637 WHIP, and 6.1 BB/9 across 94.2 innings at the big league level. Those numbers obviously aren't great but the first round pedigree warrants the rebuilding Tigers taking a flyer on him.
Chicago White Sox right-hander Carson Fulmer was hit hard in an 11-0 loss to the Indians on Tuesday. Fulmer allowed four runs in an inning of work while striking out one.
Fulmer served up a grand slam to Jose Ramirez before departing. The former first-round pick has had a rough season, posting a 6.26 ERA through 20 appearances.
Chicago White Sox reliever Carson Fulmer served as his team's opener in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Boston. Fulmer went two innings, allowing just an unearned run while striking out three.
Fulmer has struggled this season, posting a 5.40 ERA, 1.88 WHIP, and 16 strikeouts in 13 1/3 innings of work. The former first-round pick is not a fantasy consideration.
After being sent down to the Charlotte Knights in July, Carson Fulmer was moved to the bullpen after posting a 5.80 ERA across nine starts. The switch to relief hasn't helped as he has a 4.46 ERA over 22 2/3 innings out of the bullpen.
It's been a brutal year for Fulmer, who can't seem to find his stuff at all. The White Sox appeared to have made the right move in sending him down, but they were hoping it'd help him improve. I can rattle off more numbers, but it's very discouraging. The only positive for him is that he's been a little better over his last four appearances, allowing two runs across 8 1/3 innings. Still he has a long way to go and shouldn't have fantasy relevance any time in the near (or distant) future.
Carson Fulmer (2-1) allowed four hits and three walks while striking out three over seven scoreless innings in a win over the Royals in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.
Fulmer has been solid in a starting role for the White Sox. The 24-year-old righty tends to walk too many batters and does not rack up many strikeouts which hurts his fantasy value. Fulmer is not ownable in standard fantasy leagues but can be added in deeper leagues.
