Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Michael Fulmer will miss his next start after undergoing an MRI that revealed shoulder bursitis Friday. Fulmer received a cortisone shot and is scheduled to make his next start Saturday.

Fulmer scheduled the MRI after experiencing discomfort in Thursday’s 11-4 loss against the Los Angeles Angels. Buck Farmer is scheduled to start tonight in Fulmer’s place against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Tigers ace is 6-4 on the season with a 3.40 earned run average in 79.1 innings pitched.
