Many in the fantasy community are ready to write Fulmer off as a starter. While he finished with strong numbers in September (1.64 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 19:10 K:BB in six appearances), it still seems likely that he ends up in the bullpen eventually. The eighth overall pick in 2015 throws four pitches but has had trouble commanding them at any level as a professional (5.1 BB/9 in majors). Meanwhile, Fulmer's strikeout rates have been modest (7.5 K/9 in majors, 8.1 K/9 in minors). He was extremely flyball prone with the White Sox last season (54.5 percent) and had a .190 BABIP and 82.7 percent left-on-base rate, with the ERA estimators suggesting he was close to two full runs worse than his surface numbers would indicate. The White Sox have openings in the rotation and could give Fulmer a look, but if that were to happen, we'd bet on him posting damaging ratios before ultimately being removed from the role.

  2. Carson Fulmer 2017 Preseason Outlook
    As many predicted when he was selected, Fulmer became the first player from the 2015 draft to reach the big leagues, making his debut with the White Sox on July 17. However, it was not all sunshine and smiles. In fact, after some initial success, it was a nightmare. Fulmer gave up seven runs over the span of one inning (across two appearances) and 11 runs over six appearances before being sent back down to the minors. He was able to right the ship with just one earned run allowed and a 14:3 K:BB over his final three starts for Triple-A Charlotte. With the White Sox now firmly in rebuild mode, Fulmer should be able to focus on his development as a starter. There's still quite a bit to like -- Fulmer features two plus pitches in his fastball and curveball -- but he will need his changeup and control to come along to make it as a starting pitcher.
  3. Carson Fulmer 2016 Preseason Outlook
    For the second straight season, the White Sox drafted a college pitcher with a top-10 pick in the amateur draft. He entered the draft leading the SEC in ERA, wins, and strikeouts, and his 167 strikeouts at Vanderbilt in 2015 ranked second in school history behind only David Price. He brings with him a mid-90s fastball (with movement), a plus curveball, and a changeup with potential. He was limited to 28 minor league innings after a heavy collegiate workload, but all signs point to an aggressive path to the majors. It would not be surprising to see him log innings on the south side in 2016, but a 2017 ETA is much more likely.
