|Ross Detwiler set for bullpen session Saturday|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4:58 pm ET) The Nationals are expected to know Ross Detwiler's status for Tuesday's start against the Orioles after he throws a bullpen session Saturday. If Detwiler, who missed his last turn in the rotation with an oblique injury, makes it through the bullpen session, he will avoid the disabled list and take the mound Tuesday, according to The Washington Post.

(5/19/13) Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said the team has no plans to place starting pitcher Ross Detwiler on the disabled list after an MRI revealed only a slight oblique strain, according to The Washington Post. Detwiler will miss Monday's start against the Giants, with Zack Duke making a spot start.
Detwiler might not make his following start either, but Thursday's off-day gives the team flexibility and it can keep Detwiler off the DL.
"We’re hoping he does pitch," Rizzo said of Detwiler returning to action May 26 vs. Philadelphia. "We don’t have to call up a pitcher, a starter, from the minor leagues. We’re hoping Ross can take the next start. If not, we can skip his start and guys are still on regular rest."
But the Nationals would need Detwiler to be ready by May 28 in order to avoid Jordan Zimmermann pitching on short rest.
"In essence, we’ll have 10 or 11 days until that spot needs to pitch again," Rizzo said. "We think Ross will be OK by then."

(5/17/13) Nationals starting pitcher Ross Detwiler underwent a second MRI Friday after suffering back spasms in Wednesday's start.
Manager Davey Johnson told reporters Detwiler will not make his scheduled start Monday at San Francisco. The team has yet to release the results of his latest MRI, which could indicate if his injury will require a trip to the disabled list. The first test showed an "irregularity" in the right side of Detwiler’s back, Johnson told The Washington Post.
Detwiler is 2-4 with a 2.76 ERA in eight starts for the Nationals.
|MRI shows 'irregularity' in Ross Detwiler's back|

(5/17/13) Nationals starting pitcher Ross Detwiler had an MRI on his back Thursday that appeared to show an "irregularity", according to Nationals manager Davey Johnson. The team is sending him to have another MRI Friday with a specialist, as the image was ultimately inconclusive.
The team expects to take a broader look at Detwiler's back in the second MRI, with the hopes of getting a better idea of his status moving forward.
Detwiler is doubtful for his next start, Monday in San Francisco.
|Ross Detwiler was the "other guy" in the Nationals rotation, holding down the fifth spot for most of the season in relative anonymity. He didn't draw the attention that Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez or Jordan Zimmermann did, and for obvious reasons. Detwiler lacked the prospect pedigree his fellow rotation members had in their minor league careers, and as a major leaguer, the lefty has been an unglamorous contact pitcher who has shuttled between starting and relieving. Despite all that, Detwiler did make Fantasy owners take notice as he held his own with a 10-8 record, 3.40 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 2012. Though he recorded only 105 strikeouts in 164 1/3 innings, Detwiler compensated by throwing strikes and turning more than half of all hit balls into grounders. That alone didn't get Detwiler's ERA and WHIP well below the league average. He also got help from a .269 batting average on balls in play (BABIP) -- a rate that he will be hard-pressed to equal in 2013. Still, Detwiler can help with categories other than strikeouts and is worth drafting in deeper mixed league formats. (Updated 12/11/12)|
