White Sox young pitcher had a solid final month of the season in 2017, hoping to take positive momentum into upcoming 2018 campaign and start for the team.
Carson Fulmer of the Chicago White Sox was finally able to put together a solid month of pitching with the team last September. After a disastrous start for the Sox in August, Fulmer had a strong end to his 2017 campaign on the South Side.
Entering the 2018 season, Fulmer hopes to have a strong start to the year for the Sox. The 2015 first round draft pick of the Sox should have the opportunity to start this upcoming season. With Carlos Rodon recovering from injury, Fulmer could begin the 2018 season as a starting pitcher.

Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times writes about the culture change the White Sox experienced last season. Sox manager Rick Renteria‘s energy was strong to start last year, and it carried over into the regular season. The team is entering its second rebuilding year and aren’t projected to have a winning record, but should be fun to watch for fans again as they were in 2017.
