|Ross Detwiler not assured spot in rotation |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(12/3/13) Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler is not assured a spot in the team's rotation next season, according to CSN.
General manager Mike Rizzo would not commit to Detwiler being the team's fifth start. He'll likely have to battle with Taylor Jordan and Tanner Roark for the spot. Detwiler had a 4.04 ERA in 71 1/3 innings last season.
|Ross Detwiler's role unclear for 2014 |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/24/13) Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told MLB.com that the organization is uncertain as to what pitcher Ross Detwiler's role will be next season. Detwiler has experience as a reliever, but he was used exclusively as a starter in 2013, going 2-7 with a 4.04 ERA in 13 games.
Rizzo said that Detwiler could help the team either as a member of the rotation or the bullpen. Taylor Jordan, Tanner Roark and Nathan Karns could get opportunities to work as starters, as could prospects Robbie Ray, Sammy Solis and A.J. Cole, so there isn't a necessity to use Detwiler in the rotation.

(10/23/13) Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler will not participate in winter ball, MLB.com reports. "He is going to have a regular offseason," Detwiler's agent Jeff Berry said.
Detwiler didn't pitch after July 3 due to a herniated disc in his back. However, he did participate in an instructional league late in the season, throwing 90 pitches in his last start.
"It went great. It couldn't have gone any better," Berry said. "His velocity was outstanding. He feels great. He has worked extremely hard during his rehab. In terms of where his heath is at, his back feels better than it ever has."
Detwiler went 2-7 with a 4.04 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 39:14 K:BB ratio in 71 1/3 innings over 13 starts during the regular season.
|Nationals looking to test Ross Detwiler for a month |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/20/13) Nationals manager Davey Johnson wants pitcher Ross Detwiler to continue pitching on regular rest for a month after Monday's instructional-league start to determine if his back can hold up with a normal workload, masnsports.com reports.
"I talked to Det today and I said, 'Det, the only thing I am concerned about is you testing it enough,' " Johnson said. "I don't care if its finding some high school kids and throwing to them in the off season. Just on a regular turn, to make sure that nothing is going to start bothering you. You need to give yourself a good enough opportunity early. Follow this with the instructional league or staying in a throwing program and throwing 50 or 60 pitches, three or four innings, just to see that your back can stay loose."
Detwiler has been sidelined since July 3 due to a herniated disc in his back.
