We conclude our list of most memorable moments with one from yours truly. And it wasn’t really one snapshot moment, but it was a whole slide show of moments from Tigers rookie pitcher Michael Fulmer that earned him a spot on our list.

The 2016 American League Rookie of the Year very well could have earned some MVP votes along the way. If not for his emergence and borderline phenom-like performances, the Tigers are no where near the playoff picture on the final Sunday of the regular season. The numbers speak for themselves – an 11-7 record with a sub 3.00 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, 7.5 K/9 and a K/BB ratio of better than 3/1. But even all of that is overshadowed some by a historic 33.1 scoreless inning streak during the summer. It’s the longest such streak by any rookie pitcher in 35 years and longest by a Tigers hurler in 55 years.

Aside from the numbers, Fulmer helped anchor down what was a mixed bag in the rotation. He and ace Justin Verlander formed a formidable 1-2 punch at the top and gave the team and fans confidence, both short-term and for the future. What we saw was merely a glimpse of what the Tigers staff could look like in the next handful of years. Verlander could very well just be passing the torch to Fulmer. The last two Tiger ROY are armed and ready to lead Detroit back to the playoffs in 2017.
