Los Angeles Angels Sign Former 1st-Round Pick Pitcher

Six-year veteran right-handed pitcher, Carson Fulmer, has recently found a new opportunity in the Los Angeles Angels organization.

Once considered a top prospect, Fulmer's career has encountered challenges as he struggled with command and failed to make a successful transition to the major leagues.

After opting out of a minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners following spring training, Fulmer remained without a team until now.

The Los Angeles Angels saw potential in Fulmer and decided to sign him to a minor league contract, aiming to bolster their relief pitching depth. Although the 29-year-old pitcher hasn't played in the majors since the 2021 season, joining the Angels provides him with a chance to work his way back to the big leagues.

Over his six-year career, he has compiled a 6.41 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, while averaging 8.1 K/9 across 130.2 innings and 74 appearances.

The Angels' investment in Fulmer demonstrates their belief in his abilities and their willingness to give him an opportunity to resurrect his career.

Time will tell if Fulmer can rediscover his promising talent and make a meaningful impact for the Los Angeles Angels, working his way back to the major leagues and contributing to their bullpen success. Photo Credit: Kareem Elgazzar via Imagn Content Services, LLC
