Fulmer began his college career as Vanderbilt's closer before transitioning to the rotation in the middle of his sophomore season, helping lead the Commodores to their first-ever national championship. After a successful stint with USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team, he became Vanderbilt's No. 1 starter as a junior and continued to dominate opponents. Despite his outstanding track record, scouts remain mixed on Fulmer. Listed at 6-feet, 195 pounds, he is undersized for a righthander and has an effortful, high-energy delivery. Those factors lead some to see him as a future reliever. But he has a starter's arsenal and has excelled in that role, both for Vanderbilt and Team USA. His fastball sits in the mid 90s, regularly reaching 97 mph, and he holds his velocity deep into games. His power curveball can be a plus pitch and his changeup has above-average potential. He has improved his control this year, but his delivery means he will likely never have better than average command. He earns praise for his makeup and work ethic. Some team will likely give Fulmer a chance to start and hope he can follow fellow Vanderbilt product Sonny Gray's path to success as a big league starter despite his stature. But if a team sends out Fulmer as a reliever, he could fly through the minor leagues.
