Michael Fulmer to visit Dr. James Andrews

9 Comments

The Tigers have seen a lot of changes in the last couple of days, what with their De-Justification Program and all. Now they may be losing a player they actually want to keep: the Tigers just announced that Michael Fulmer had a recurrence of right elbow ulnar neuritis and, as a result, will go visit Dr. James Andrews.

Fulmer was placed on the disabled list with this malady in early August, missing a couple of starts. Since he came back on August 14 he’s been ineffective, allowing 16 runs — 14 earned — in 24.1 innings in four starts while walking nine and striking out 14. Oh, and he also kicked off a big brawl between the Yankees and the Tigers by hitting Gary Sanchez in retaliation for Sanchez taking him deep.

Last one left in Comerica Park turn the lights off, will ya?
