MLB trade rumors: Yankees setting sights on Tigers’ Michael Fulmer?

Have the Yankees set their sights on Tigers starting pitcher Michael Fulmer as their primary target on the trade market?Well, according to the NY Daily News, New York had a scout in Detroit Thursday to watch the 25-year-old’s start against the Athletics.This is often what teams do. They send scouts to watch games to look at every single pitcher either they will face on the schedule or that they’re looking at for a po sible trade.This is not crazy, earth-shattering news.However, https://www.marlinsedge.com/miami-marlins/andre-dawson-jersey Hal Steinbrenner told reporters the team will be looking at starting pitching to add at the deadline and Fulmer has the best stuff of any starter presumably on the market. (This is a suming Jacob deGrom and Madison Bumgarner are not made available.)Rangers starter Cole Hamels has the best track record and postseason succe s, but Fulmer has the best fastball and po sibly breaking pitch of anyone on the market when he’s healthy.Fulmer should absolutely be looked at by any team who wants to add to its starting pitching and the Yankees clearly have their eyes on him.What would it take to get Fulmer? That remains to Martin Prado Jersey be seen. But with one year before arbitration and presumably another three after that of negotiations, the price will be pretty high.It would likely take a similar package to what Detroit got for Justin Verlander last season though Fulmer is obviously not the caliber of pitcher as him. Remember though, the Tigers also covered $8 million per year Jose Fernandez Jersey of Verlander’s contract, so that made the price a bit lower.So the Yankees would likely have to give up a starter of top-100 pedigree and a fringe top-100 position player as well.If that isclose to the asking price, the Tigers would probably want a Chance Adams and Clint Frazier to start. Estevan Florial may be asking a bit much.Fulmer is 3-6 with a 4.17 ERA this season. He has a career 3.60 ERA in 410 innings pitched.
