Detroit Tigers pitcher Michael Fulmer hasn't enjoyed the smoothest of sailing since winning American League Rookie of the Year honors in 2016.
He's undergone Tommy John surgery, right knee surgery, and missed an entire campaign. Last season, he was limited to three innings per start. His numbers last season weren't exactly stellar either, posting an 8.78 ERA, 2.060 WHIP, 12 walks and 20 strikeouts.
However, the Tigers saw fit to avoid arbitration and sign him to a one-year extension earlier this year.
This season, he's put together more than a few strong outings in what can be described as a positive in an otherwise dreary season.
He recently sat down with Bally Sports Detroit host Johnny Kane to discuss some of the successes he's enjoyed so far in his career:
