11 months agoIn addition to his meniscus being shaved down, Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Michael Fulmer (knee) also needed a modified microfracture technique on the bone in his right knee. “I don’t want people thinking I had microfracture surgery, because it wasn’t that bad,” Fulmer said. “They made some bone abrasions on the lateral side to draw some blood in there to recreate some scar tissue.” With normal microfracture surgery, the recovery time can be as much as 10 months. Fulmer expects to be ready when pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Feb. 12, but his progress has been slow so far. He'll have a follow-up visit with Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday, and afterwards he can hopefully begin his rehab process. He has been working to get the swelling down and to strengthen his quads and the muscles around his knee. Fulmer has yet to do any running and will need to tweak his mechanics to deal with his knee problems. Still only 25 years old, Fulmer has dealt with a handful of injuries and will be a risky fantasy target in 2019. He's now had two surgeries on his right knee in the last five years.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
