Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer is drawing a notable amount of interest, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.
Fulmer, 24, is having another solid season. Over 115.2 innings, he’s pitched to a 3.19 ERA and 3.26 FIP.
Fulmer’s success comes a season after he posted a 3.06 ERA over 26 starts.
Fulmer isn’t arbitration eligible until 2019 and is making just $552,000 this season, which could encourage the Tigers to seek multiple prospects in a potential deal.
Because there are few available controllable starters, Fulmer could be dealt this summer.
Here’s the latest from around the American League Central:
- Things aren’t looking much better for the Indians offense just a pair of games into the second half.
- The White Sox started discussing the Jose Quintana deal last Sunday and decided to complete the deal later the next week.
- It seems the Royals could give serious thought to trading Jarrod Dyson before the trade deadline.
- Can the Twins compete with this current starting rotation?
- Ian Kinsler is in a great position to be dealt, but there isn’t much of a market for second basemen.
