Twins To Acquire Michael Fulmer

MLB Trade Rumors

The Twins are acquiring reliever Michael Fulmer from the Tigers, reports Jon Heyman of the New York Post (Twitter link). Pitching prospect Sawyer Gipson-Long is headed back to Detroit, reports Mark Feinsand of MLB.com (on Twitter).

Fulmer is one of the better rental relievers available on the summer market. The 29-year-old has worked to a 3.20 ERA across 39 1/3 innings, his second straight season with strong run prevention. Fulmer’s 23.1% strikeout rate and 11.5% swinging strike percentage are more solid than great, but he’s consistently done an excellent job keeping the ball in the yard.

More to come.
