“Twins are doing really good today” “Another one the Mets missed on lol”

The Minnesota Twins have officially announced the acquisition of reliever Michael Fulmer from the Detroit Tigers.

Fulmer is an upcoming free agent and the longest-serving Tiger alongside Miguel Cabrera. Of all the relievers that have been available on the market, Fulmer is one of the most reliable names.

“Michael Fulmer to Twins” – Jon Heyman

The 29-year-old is a six-year MLB veteran who went from starter to helper during last year’s spring training.

He has since posted a 3.05 ERA and 16 saves with 3.3 walks per nine innings and 9.3 strikeouts per nine. His arrival will give the twins’ bullpen a much-needed boost.

The pain was felt in the New York Mets section of Twitter. Without the arrival of a key deadline, Fulmer’s escape only raised more questions about Mets GM Billy Eppler’s lack of involvement on deadline.

Fulmer is a former Mets contender who was traded to the Tigers in 2015. He won American League Rookie of the Year the following season and became an All-Star in 2017. Another classic example of “one who slipped away”. “.

In exchange for Fulmer, the Detroit Tigers will get Sawyer Gipson-Long. The right-hander was picked by the Twins in the sixth round in 2019.

Between High-A Cedar Rapids and Double-A Wichita, Gipson-Long compiled a 4.23 ERA and a 1.122 WHIP in 18 games. He started 17 of those games.

The Minnesota Twins mean business on Deadline Day

The Minnesota Twins are making statement after statement as the trade closes.

Earlier in the day, they agreed a five-player trade with the Baltimore Orioles for All-Star closer Jorge Lopez. In exchange, the Orioles get left-handers Cade Povich and Juan Rojas; and right-handers Yennier Cano and Juan Nunez.

The twins were far from finished. They went on to add starter Tyler Mahle of the Cincinnati Reds. Infielder Spencer Steer, third baseman Christian Encarnacion-Strand and leftie Steven Hajjar went the other way.

Along with Fulmer’s arrival, the Minnesota Twins now have an enviable bullpen. Despite the usual chaotic circumstances of the deadline, they ran their business fairly smoothly. The Twins aimed to strengthen their bullpen from start to finish and they did just that.
