The Tigers announced on Thursday that pitcher Michael Fulmer has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Tuesday, with right elbow ulnar neuritis. The club selected the contract of reliever Edward Mujica from Triple-A Toledo.

Fulmer, 24, has had another good season, but struggled in his most recent start, giving up seven runs in six innings to the Yankees on Monday. Overall, he’s carrying a 3.59 ERA with a 100/31 K/BB ratio in 140 1/3 innings. Fulmer won the American League Rookie of the Year Award last year.

Mujica, 33, hasn’t appeared in the majors since 2015. With Toledo, he posted a 2.35 ERA with a 38/5 K/BB ratio in 46 innings out of the bullpen.
