Jeffrey Paul Fulchino is a professional baseball player from the United States of America who plays as a pitcher. Fulchino went to the University of Connecticut where he played for three seasons before declaring for the 2001 MLB Amateur Draft. Signed by the Florida Marlins in the 8th round, Fulchino joined the minor league structure at the Marlins and slowly made his way up till his debut in 2006.
Fulchino made his debut against the Baltimore Orioles and after just one game, was sent back to the Albuquerque Isotopes in the AAA-Division. He stayed there for another season before signing a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals in February, 2008.
Fulchino was called up to the MLB roster for 12 games and had one loss against his name with a 9.00 ERA. His performance was poor and the main objective of his call-up, to replace a struggling Joel Peralta, went unfulfilled. He was waived off by the Royals in December, 2008 and the Houston Astros decided to pick him up.
Fulchino began his Astros career in the AAA-League with the Round Rock Express and has played 59 games so far for the Astros in the MLB. His win-loss record stands at 6-4 while his ERA is a respectable 3.38 in 80 innings pitched.
