Tigers pitcher Michael Fulmer will undergo ulnar transposition surgery on Tuesday,’s Jason Beck reports. He will need three to four months to recover.

Fulmer, 24, landed on the 10-day disabled list in early August with an elbow injury and returned on August 14, but struggled in four starts since. On the season, he went 10-12 with a 3.83 ERA and a 114/40 K/BB ratio in 164 2/3 innings.

The hope is that Fulmer will be at 100 percent by the time spring training rolls around next year.
