|Ross Detwiler picks up first relief win in extras |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler (1-2) picked up his first relief win of the season in extras against the Phillies in Philadelphia on Saturday.
Detwiler struck out one and needed only 12 pitches to secure a perfect ninth inning. The Nationals scored twice in the 10th inning, which proved to be the difference. He owns a 3.89 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP over 39 1/3 innings of relief.

(6/29/14) Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler recorded his first career save Saturday, as he closed out a 7-2 win over the Cubs in long relief.
The Nationals used Detwiler to save the pitching staff at the end of a doubleheader, and he had little trouble finishing the game off. He pitched three innings for the save, retiring the Cubs in order while striking out two batters and throwing 34 pitches.
Detwiler has a 4.00 ERA in 36 innings this season, all as a reliever.
|Ross Detwiler finally fine in Tuesday victory |

(6/25/14) Nationals left-hander Ross Detwiler has not performed well in his switch from starter to reliever this season. But he pitched four critical shutout innings Tuesday night to help his team win a marathon in Milwaukee.
"Det was above and beyond," Matt Williams told the Washington Post. "Going in we had some guys there were feeling it so we didn't want to go to them. Turned out we had to. Det was fantastic."
Detwiler tossed nothing but fastballs, but displayed far better command that he has most of the season. He had given up at least one earned run in six of his last eight appearances. The result of his fine effort against the Brewers was that his ERA shrunk from 4.97 to 4.36.

(5/20/14) Nationals reliever Ross Detwiler took the loss in Monday's 4-3 defeat to the Reds in 15 innings.
Detwiler surrendered a two-run home run to Todd Frazier in the 15th, which proved to be the difference. He allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one in one inning of work. He owns a 4.50 ERA and a 1.85 WHIP in 20 innings of relief.
|Ross Detwiler roughed up |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(4/27/14) Nationals reliever Ross Detwiler took the loss in Sunday's 4-2 defeat to the Padres after getting roughed up in 1 1/3 innings. Detwiler (0-1) gave up four hits and three runs, all earned. He struck out one and walked one.
Despite the ugly 38-pitch outing, Detwiler sports a 1.98 ERA and might get a spot start if Taylor Jordan is pulled from the rotation.
|Ross Detwiler was limited to 13 starts last season because of oblique and back injuries, and unfortunately his time out of the lineup might cost him a rotation spot moving forward. Detwiler will be in the mix for the final spot in the rotation this spring, but he will have to beat out rising arms Taylor Jordan and Tanner Roark. Detwiler pitched well before an oblique injury put him on the disabled list in mid-May. Although he was just 2-4 in his first eight starts, Detwiler had a 2.76 ERA. However, Detwiler struggled after returning from the disabled list, going 0-3 with a 6.31 ERA, but a herniated disc in his back played a huge part in his decline. Detwiler probably doesn't have the upside that Jordan and Roark bring to the table, and his experience as a reliever could mean the Nationals move him to the bullpen as a long reliever/spot starter. Still, if Detwiler opens in the rotation, he only deserves late-round consideration.
