Angels' Carson Fulmer: Back with Angels as NRI
Fulmer signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Fulmer has re-upped with the Angels after making three appearances for them in 2023, yielding three runs over 10 innings. The 30-year-old has put up an unsightly 6.14 ERA over 77 appearances (14 starts) over parts of seven seasons at the big-league level.... See More ... See Less
Carson Fulmer: Hits free agent market
Fulmer elected free agency Tuesday.
Fulmer had been outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster and is now out of the organization altogether. The 29-year-old holds a career 6.14 ERA over parts of seven major-league seasons.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Carson Fulmer: Blanks A's over five innings
Fulmer (1-1) got the win over the Athletics on Sunday after tossing five shutout innings while allowing just two hits and three walks. He struck out three.
Fulmer handled the Athletics and picked up his first win since 2019 when he was with the White Sox. The former first round pick has not been effective as a big leaguer and struggled mightily at Triple-A Salt Lake with a 5.27 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in 2023. He should not be in consideration to make the 2024 opening day roster, even if the Angels go into rebuilding mode.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Carson Fulmer: Starting finale vs. A's
Fulmer is starting Sunday's game against the Athletics.
The Angels have nothing to play for, and they will give Fulmer a shot as a starter in what should be a favorable matchup on the last day of the season. Expectations should be very low for Fulmer, who logged a 5.27 ERA at Triple-A and has a career 6.37 ERA in 135.2 career innings in the majors. He logged four innings against the Twins on Sept. 24 and then threw one inning against the Rangers on Sept. 25, so he theoretically should be rested enough to go four or five innings against Oakland....

Angels' Carson Fulmer: Promoted to majors
The Angels called Fulmer up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Fulmer has spent all season with Salt Lake, where he posted a 5.27 ERA and 1.78 WHIP through 41 innings. Despite his poor performance in the minors and the fact he hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021, it's possible Fulmer gets into Sunday's contest as the Angels prepare for a bullpen game. Still, Fulmer shouldn't be viewed as a reliable fantasy option.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Carson Fulmer: Latches on with Angels
Fulmer signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Monday.
Fulmer was with the Mariners in spring training before being released shortly after Opening Day. He hasn't pitched anywhere since then but is now likely to report to Triple-A Salt Lake with his new organization to provide some relief depth.... See More ... See Less
Carson Fulmer: Cut loose by Seattle
The Mariners released Fulmer on Wednesday.
Seattle opted to cut ties with Fulmer after getting a chance to evaluate him in spring training following his signing with the organization in February. The 29-year-old right-hander will look to land a minor-league deal elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Carson Fulmer: Gets minors deal from Mariners
Fulmer signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday.
It's not clear whether he's been invited to major-league spring training. The 29-year-old spent all of 2022 at Triple-A Oklahoma City in the Dodgers organization, posting a 2.86 ERA in 49 appearances. Fulmer, a first-round pick of the White Sox in 2015, has never found his footing at the big-league level, holding a 6.41 ERA across parts of six seasons.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Carson Fulmer: Re-signs with Dodgers
Fulmer was re-signed by the Dodgers on Friday, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.
Fulmer was reportedly released earlier in the day, but the Dodgers abruptly brought the right-hander back in time for Triple-A Oklahoma City's evening game, during which he pitched two scoreless innings. Fulmer was called up to the big club in late April, but he didn't get into any contests with Los Angeles. He's posted a 1.98 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 13:9 K:BB across 13.2 innings in the minors this season.... See More ... See Less
Carson Fulmer: Released by Dodgers
Fulmer was released by the Dodgers on Friday, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.
Fulmer was designated for assignment by the Dodgers in early May, and he'll now be free to seek out another organization. The 28-year-old was a first-round pick by the White Sox in 2015, but he's failed to carve out a meaningful role in the majors while making appearances in six consecutive seasons. The right-hander is unlikely to have a significant role if he lands another contract.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Carson Fulmer: Clears waivers, moved to Triple-A
Fulmer cleared waivers Thursday and was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City, independent baseball writer Blake Harris reports.
Fulmer received a brief call-up to the Dodgers this past weekend but didn't appear in any games. He was subsequently designated for assignment but will remain with the organization. Fulmer has tossed 11.2 innings with Oklahoma City this season, posting a 2.31 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 12:8 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Carson Fulmer: Designated for assignment
Fulmer was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Monday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Fulmer was called up on Saturday but didn't get into a game during his two days on the roster. He'll now be available for any team to claim off waivers, but his 6.41 ERA across parts of six major-league seasons suggests that he has a good chance of passing through unclaimed.... See More ...

Dodgers' Carson Fulmer: Called up by Dodgers
Fulmer was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Fulmer was effective in eight appearances with Oklahoma City, so the Dodgers decided to add him to the roster and demote fellow reliever Andre Jackson. Nine other relievers reside in the Dodgers' bullpen, but it seems likely the club will want to see how he fares in his return to the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Carson Fulmer: Sent to minors
Fulmer was sent to minor-league camp Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The eighth overall pick in 2015 by the White Sox has a career 6.41 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 130.2 innings. Fulmer threw three scoreless innings with one hit, one walk and four strikeouts in spring training.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Carson Fulmer: Scooped by Dodgers
Fulmer has been selected by the Dodgers in the second round of the 2021 Rule 5 draft, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports.
Fulmer was a first-round pick by the White Sox in 2015, and he's spent parts of the last six seasons in the big leagues. However, he's failed to generate much success at the top level. The right-hander posted a 6.66 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 25.2 innings across 20 relief appearances with the Reds last year. However, he should be in the mix for a low-leverage relief role with the Dodgers at some point in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Carson Fulmer: Stays in organization
Fulmer was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville after clearing waivers Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fulmer will remain in the Reds organization after none of the other 29 teams were willing to trade for him or scoop him up off waivers when he was designated for assignment Friday. Before being dropped from the 40-man roster, the right-hander made 20 appearances out of the Cincinnati bullpen, posting a 6.66 ERA and 1.52 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Carson Fulmer: Designated for assignment
Fulmer was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday.
Fulmer had been with the team since the start of the season, throwing 25.2 innings across 20 relief appearances, but he failed to find much success. He struggled to a 6.66 ERA , striking out 20.7 percent of opposing batters while walking 11.2 percent. His career 6.41 ERA means it's likely he passes through waivers unclaimed. Brad Brach's contract was selected in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Carson Fulmer: Gets Opening Day bullpen spot
The Reds will include Fulmer in their Opening Day bullpen, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Since last summer, Fulmer has bounced around between five organizations, but the Reds seem committed to hanging on to him, at least to begin the season. After coming over in a waiver claim from Pittsburgh earlier this month, Fulmer made three relief appearances for the Reds in the Cactus League, giving up a run on one hit and two walks over three innings. The 27-year-old will likely work in low-leverage situations out of Cincinnati's bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Carson Fulmer: Impressive in simulated games
Fulmer has been generating a lot of swings and misses in simulated games over the last week, including eight during a 24-pitch stretch last Thursday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fulmer is out of options and thus only has a small window to impress the Reds enough to win a roster spot, but he might claim the team's final bullpen opening if his success in simulated games carries over to spring training outings.... See More ... See Less
