Long arm action, especially on back end turing take away; brings arm down immediately. Too much effort in his delivery for a big guy. Thick, long legs support a heavy frame. Built to log innings.
St. Lucie Mets (High A, Mets)
Fastball command was erratic; threw strikes but not quality ones. Straight, no movement.
Fulmer's one plus pitch; featured plus break; hard, downward action. Tough pitch to elevate when he keeps it down. Should generate a lot of ground balls.
Showed an ability to spin the ball, but break and velocity was inconsistent. Some were hard with slight break, almost resembling cutters. Others were slower and loopy, like a slurve. Couldn't seem to settle on one velocity, plane or pitch type. Could be an average pitch if he settles on one and refines it.
Little to no movement on pitch, very hittable. Only deception was in change in velocity.
Fulmer may look like he's built to log innings, but his stuff suggests middle-relief. He has enough velocity that his fastball can be an average pitch with improved command, but his only other effective offering is the curveball. At this point, he's a two-pitch pitcher who only commands one of them well, which suggests bullpen role.
