DETROIT – Detroit Tigers right-handed pitcher Michael Fulmer was named the Tigers Rookie of the Year by the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association today.

 

Fulmer finished his rookie season with an 11-7 record, a 3.06 ERA (159.0IP/54ER) and 132 strikeouts in 26 starts. Among American League pitchers with at least 150.0 innings pitched, Fulmer ranked third with a 3.06 ERA, while he was seventh with a .231 opponents batting average and a 1.12 WHIP. Fulmer’s 132 strikeouts were the second most by a rookie pitcher in Tigers history, trailing only Les Cain, who struck out 156 batters as a rookie in 1970.

 

Fulmer had a consecutive scoreless innings streak of 33.1 innings from May 21-June 17. The streak was snapped with a two-out solo homer by Salvador Perez in the sixth inning on June 17 at Kansas City. The streak ranks as the longest by a Tigers pitcher in franchise history, and according to the Elias Sports Bureau, the streak was the second longest by a rookie pitcher since 1971, trailing only a streak of 35.0 scoreless innings by Fernando Valenzuela during the 1981 season.

 

Fulmer will be presented with his award prior to a 2017 Tigers home game at Comerica Park. The Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association has selected a Tigers Rookie of the Year since 1969.
