  • Red Sox's Michael Fulmer: Agrees to deal with Boston

    Fulmer (elbow) signed a two-year, minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Feb. 2.

    Fulmer is expected to miss 2024 following UCL revision surgery, so he'll rehab with the Red Sox this year before joining their bullpen in 2025, assuming all goes well. The veteran right-hander held a 4.42 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 65:28 K:BB across 57 innings in 2023 with the Cubs before getting injured.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Undergoes UCL revision surgery

    Fulmer underwent UCL revision surgery Thursday on his right elbow and is expected to miss the 2024 season, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

    This procedure comes with brutal timing for the 30-year-old reliever, who is set to become a free agent in November. He inked a one-year, $4 million contract with the Cubs prior to the 2023 season and went on to post a 4.42 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 65:28 K:BB across 57 innings before finishing the year on the injured list because of a forearm strain.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Sent to 60-day IL

    The Cubs transferred Fulmer (forearm) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Fulmer had already been ruled out for the season after landing on the 15-day IL on Sept. 16 with a right forearm strain. His move to the 60-day IL was merely for procedural purposes, as the transaction opened up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Shane Greene. Assuming he doesn't require an offseason procedure to address the forearm strain, Fulmer should be fully cleared for spring training, but he may not be attending camp as a member of the Cubs organization. The 30-year-old right-hander is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason after accruing a 4.42 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 65:28 K:BB to go with three wins, 11 holds and two saves over 57 innings in 2023.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Back on injured list

    Fulmer was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a right forearm strain.

    Fulmer suffered an apparent setback, as he returned from the same issue on Monday. This will almost certainly end his regular season, though it's possible he could return for the postseason if he can get healthy.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Notches save in return

    Fulmer earned a save against the Rockies on Monday, issuing one walk and striking out two batters over two-thirds of an inning.

    Fulmer was activated from the injured list Monday and was immediately thrown into the fire, taking the mound with one out in the ninth inning and Chicago holding a one-run lead. He put the first two batters he faced on base via a walk and a hit-by-pitch but rebounded in impressive fashion by fanning Harold Castro and Brenton Doyle to escape the jam. The veteran reliever's save came on the same day Cubs closer Adbert Alzolay landed on the injured list with a forearm strain, though that doesn't necessarily suggest Fulmer will be the team's top ninth-inning option moving forward. Julian Merryweather has pitched very well this season and picked up a save Sunday, but he was likely unavailable Monday after pitching each of the previous three days.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Activated from injured list

    Fulmer (forearm) was activated from the injured list Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Fulmer did not encounter any issues after landing on the injured list in late August, and he will be back in Chicago's bullpen moving forward. Closer Adbert Alzolay (forearm) was placed on the injured list in the corresponding move, so roles are set to change at the back end of the bullpen. Fulmer could be in the mix for saves, but he's likely behind a fellow reliever or two.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Throws bullpen session

    Fulmer (forearm) threw a successful bullpen session Wednesday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    It was his first time throwing off a mound since he landed on the 15-day injured list Aug. 26 due to a mild right forearm strain. There is not an exact timetable for Fulmer's return to the Cubs' bullpen, but he would seem to be getting close. He may be allowed to skip a minor-league rehab assignment if his side work continues to go smoothly.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Ready for mound work

    Fulmer (forearm) is expected to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Fulmer has been playing catch without issue over the last few days and is ready to take the next step in his recovery from the mild right forearm strain that sent him to the injured list Aug. 26. He could potentially skip a minor-league rehab assignment and return to the Cubs' bullpen this weekend if everything continues to go smoothly.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Playing catch Friday

    Fulmer (forearm) will play catch Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Fulmer is less than a week removed from landing on the injured list with a right forearm strain, but he's made a swift recovery and is ready to do some throwing. The reliever has a chance to return when first eligible Sept. 10.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Forearm shows improvement

    Fulmer (forearm) is expected to resume throwing later this week, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Fulmer just landed on the 15-day injured list this past Saturday with a right forearm strain, but an examination conducted Monday showed that he is already improving. The 30-year-old setup man might be ready for activation when first eligible Sept. 10.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Placed on 15-day IL

    The Cubs placed Fulmer on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a right forearm strain, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Fulmer has surrendered six runs in 5.2 innings across his last seven appearances, and he'll now be sidelined for at least two weeks in order to address a forearm issue. Jordan Wicks was called up from Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move and will start for the Cubs on Saturday.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Inefficient over two frames

    Fulmer did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk over two innings against the Cardinals. He struck out two.

    Fulmer didn't give the Cubs the start they'd hoped for, surrendering a leadoff home run to Lars Nootbaar on the very first pitch of the game. He also gave up a single and a walk in the inning but was able to work his way out of the jam and added two strikeouts in the second before being relieved by Drew Smyly to open the third. The right-handed reliever had not allowed a hit in three straight appearances coming in and now holds a lousy 9:7 K:BB in July.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: To serve as opener Saturday

    Fulmer will serve as the Cubs' opener Saturday versus the Cardinals, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Fulmer threw 15 pitches in relief for the Cubs during Friday's 4-3 win over St. Louis, so he'll probably only cover the first inning of Saturday's tilt. The 30-year-old right-hander holds a 4.43 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 46:21 K:BB through 42.2 frames on the season.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Pitching better this month

    Fulmer, who pitched 1.1 scoreless innings in Friday's 10-1 win over the Guardians, has a 0.66 ERA across 13.2 innings this month.

    Fulmer has only been scored upon once in 12 June appearances, and he has also registered 14 strikeouts across the 13.2 innings. The veteran entered the month with a 7.36 ERA for the season, but he's been able to lower that to 4.79. Fulmer seems to have regained his form as a reliable reliever, though he's not seeing save chances with the Cubs, so his fantasy value remains limited.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Takes loss in relief Saturday

    Fulmer (0-4) allowed two runs while retiring only two batters to take the loss Saturday against the Reds. He gave up a hit and two walks while striking out two.

    Fulmer was tagged for a two-run home run by Jonathan India in the fifth inning to ultimately get saddled with the loss in the 8-5 defeat, The veteran has struggled with his new team, as he now has a 7.84 ERA and has allowed two earned runs or more six times in 23 outings this year. Fulmer has lost his grip on a high-leverage role and has little fantasy appeal at the moment.

  • Cubs' Michael Fulmer: Struggles again Monday

    Fulmer (0-3) allowed two runs on two hits while retiring two batters to take the loss Monday against the Astros. He walked one and struck out one.

    Fulmer came on in the seventh inning and struggled, serving up a two-run home to Alex Bregman before getting the hook. The veteran has allowed five earned runs across 1.1 innings in his last two appearances, and he's stuck with an ugly 7.50 ERA overall. Fulmer was better last year with a 3.39 ERA while splitting time between Detroit and Minnesota, so he could still rebound in 2023. However, he's worked his way out of closer mix for the time being and has little value in most fantasy formats.
