Now that we’ve gotten in to the Minor League season, let’s take a look where the Tigers Top 10 Prospects landed according to Baseball America and how their seasons are starting…
- Michael Fulmer, RHP – Fulmer (23), the key piece in the Yoenis Cespedes trade and former 1st round pick; started the season out at Triple-A Toledo. In 3 starts, Fulmer is 1-1 with a 4.11 ERA, giving up 3 home runs, walking 5 and striking out 20 in 15.1 innings. The K per 9 (11.7) is strong, the homers per game should come down and the walks are manageable. The concern right now is contact with 9.4 hits per 9 which leads to a WHIP of 1.370. Fulmer was the only Tiger to make the Sons Of ’84 Top 100 MLB Prospects for 2016 list
