MLB Rumors: Trade Talks Heating Up For Detroit Tigers Pitcher

Michael Fulmer's name has been in the rumor mill for a decent portion of the season. Now, with the trade deadline arriving here shortly, trade talks are starting to pick up rapidly for the reliever.

Fulmer has had himself a very strong 2022 season, so it makes sense that plenty of teams want to add him as a rental. Playoff teams are always looking to improve upon their bullpen, and he is the kind of short-term option worth considering. 

In 36 games this season with the Tigers, Fulmer sports a 2-4 record to go along with a 2.31 ERA. Although he has a losing record, that ERA is quite solid and shows how reliable he has been when called upon. 

Teams to watch in the Fulmer sweepstakes include the Blue Jays, Braves, Cardinals, and Phillies.
