Michael Fulmer to undergo ulnar transposition surgery

7 Comments

Tigers pitcher Michael Fulmer will undergo ulnar transposition surgery on Tuesday, MLB.com’s Jason Beck reports. He will need three to four months to recover.

Fulmer, 24, landed on the 10-day disabled list in early August with an elbow injury and returned on August 14, but struggled in four starts since. On the season, he went 10-12 with a 3.83 ERA and a 114/40 K/BB ratio in 164 2/3 innings.

The hope is that Fulmer will be at 100 percent by the time spring training rolls around next year.

Angels sign Chris Young to one-year deal

The Angels went on a Chris binge yesterday. In addition to signing Chris Carter to a minor league deal they signed Chris Young — the outfielder Chris Young, not the pitcher Chris Young — to a one-year contract. Young will make $2 million with incentives that could make the pact more valuable.

Young, 34, hit .235/.322/.387 with seven home runs in a part-time role last season with the Red Sox. He’s historically been a plus defender and has handled all three outfield positions in the past, but he’s really a corner guy/platoon DH these days. Not that the Angels need a center fielder. Rumor has it that they have a pretty decent one.
