The Boston Red Sox have signed veteran right-hander Michael Fulmer to a two-year minor league contract, according to the team's transaction log. Fulmer, who won the AL Rookie of the Year award in 2016, is not expected to pitch in 2024 due to a UCL revision surgery in his right elbow. He has undergone multiple surgeries and dealt with various injuries, which have limited his playing time over the past six seasons. However, Fulmer showed promise when he shifted to the bullpen in 2021, pitching well and saving 14 games.
Fulmer looked to have found a second act in his career upon making that shift. He saved 14 games for the '21 Tigers and from '21-'23 pitched 190 1/3 frames of 3.55 ERA ball between the Tigers, Twins and Cubs.
