The Detroit Tigers have placed right-hander Michael Fulmer on the 10-day disabled list with an elbow injury.

Fulmer, the 2016 AL Rookie of the Year, was placed on the DL by Detroit on Thursday - mostly as a precaution.

Manager Brad Ausmus told reporters Fulmer wasn't feeling any pain and does not have ligament damage, but an MRI showed fluid around his elbow. "It never affects his pitching whatsoever because it's been the ring finger and the pinkie". "It only affected one pitch, the changeup. We want to make it more manageable".

"Hopefully, I can take a week off and in 12 days be ready to pitch again", he said.

Fulmer is 10-9 with a 3.58 ERA in 21 starts.

To replace Fulmer on the roster they have called up RHP Edward Mujica. Despite his closer experience with the Mud Hens and the 50 saves on his major-league resume, Mujica probably won't score many - if any - opportunities, especially after Shane Greene's recent pair of conversions backed up the club's declaration of his new role.
