Carson Fulmer spun his best start of Spring Training as the White Sox cruised to a 15-2 win over the D-backs on Monday.
Fulmer, the White Sox No. 10 prospect, walked three, but struck out four and didn't allow a hit over four scoreless frames.
The right-hander entered the start with an 18.90 ERA through his first four starts of spring and gave up seven runs in 1 2/3 innings in his last start. However, Fulmer showed no signs of those struggles as he struck out the first batter he faced en route to retiring six of the first seven.
Fulmer appeared headed for some struggles as he opened the third with a pair of walks, but after a brief mound visit he retired three in a row to escape the jam.
Other top prospect performances from Monday's action:
• No. 41 overall prospect Ryan McMahon (Rockies No. 2) hit his second homer of Spring Training, a two-run shot that capped a four-run third inning. McMahon, who is hitting .339, finished 1-for-2.
• Giants No. 3 prospect Steven Duggar collected his 10th RBI of spring with a base hit in the Giants' loss to the Indians. Duggar, who is still battling for a roster spot, finished 1-for-4.
• Mariners No. 11 prospect Dan Vogelbach has been on fire all spring and that trend continued early against the Angels. Vogelbach, who is hitting .400, crushed the first pitch he saw over the wall for his fifth homer of the spring. Mike Ford, the Mariners No. 16 prospect, got in on the action as well with a solo homer of his own.
• Marlins No. 9 prospect Brian Anderson showed off his power with his second homer in as many days. After going 2-for-3 with a homer on Sunday, Anderson only got one at-bat on Monday, but utilized to take Max Scherzer deep for his fourth homer of the spring.
• Orioles No. 3 prospect Chance Sisco and Jomar Reyes (No. 21) combined for three hits, a homer and two RBIs in Baltimore's win over the Tigers. Sisco continued his scorching-hot spring with a pair of extra-base hits, going 2-for-2 with a double and a triple to boost his average to .393, while Reyes, who went 1-for-4, drove in two with his first homer.
