Rangers' Ross Detwiler to start Tuesday after bullpen adjustments


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler is feeling significantly better with his mechanics after a second bullpen session to work on his delivery, according to the Dallas Morning News. Detwiler will make his return to the starting rotation Tuesday after getting eight days off to work on things, according to report.

"By the end of the session [Friday], I felt like I was back to my old self," Detwiler said. "I was able to put the ball where I wanted to. I was finishing towards home plate. I felt confident. And confidence is a Catch-22. You've got to have confidence to succeed; but sometimes you need to succeed to have confidence."

Detwiler has posted a 10.95 ERA in his first three starts this season.


Rangers' Wandy Rodriguez to start Friday vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Rangers pitcher Wandy Rodriguez will draw the start for Friday's series-opening game against the Angels in Anaheim, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Ross Detwiler, who has posted a 10.95 ERA while going 0-2 in his first three starts, isn't being moved to the bullpen, but he'll throw some extra bullpen sessions before making his next start. Rodriguez isn't on the 40-man roster, so the team will have to clear spots on both the 25-man and 40-man rosters in order to bring him up for Friday's start.


Rangers P Ross Detwiler's spot in starting rotation safe for now


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/2015) Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler struggled again on Sunday, allowing five runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings against the Mariners, but manager Jeff Banister said he's sticking with the lefty in the starting rotation, reports the Dallas Morning News.

"We’re going to continue to work with Ross and have him go out there and start. I look for him to do better," Bannister said.

Detwiler (0-2) did not take a decision Sunday but surrendered three home runs and now sits with a 10.95 ERA after three starts.

Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler allows five runs, earns no decision


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler allowed five runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings of work in Texas' 11-10 loss to the Mariners Sunday. 

Detwiler struggled early and often, allowing two home runs in the first inning to Austin Jackson and Nelson Cruz. Then in the third, Detwiler put two men on for Cruz, who ripped the first pitch he saw over the left field wall for a three-run home run. Detwiler allowed two more hitters to reach base before getting the hook.

Detwiler, still 0-2 on the year, now boasts an 11.68 ERA and will look for his first win of the season Sunday against the Angels.


Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler tagged for two home runs in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler allowed five runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in Texas' 6-3 loss to the Angels Monday.

Detwiler cruised early on before seeing issues in the fifth inning. Detwiler surrendered a two-run homer to Collin Cowgill and then another two-run shot to David Freese later in the inning. He allowed two consecutive singles in the sixth before being replaced on the mound.

Detwiler lowered his ERA to 9.90, but remains winless in his first two starts. He will look for the first win of the year Sunday against the Mariners.


Rangers' Ross Detwiler blasted in season debut Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler surrendered eight runs (six earned) on nine hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 10-0 loss to the A's Wednesday.

"He lost command of the fastball in," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said, per ESPN. "That really set the ball rolling for him. The breaking ball wasn't in the strike zone as much as he wanted. I'm proud of how he continued to compete, continued to go out and battle. It was a learning experience for him."

Detwiler was able to hold the A's scoreless through the first two innings before the Oakland offense broke through with a five-spot in the third and continued the run barrage through the middle innings. Detwiler will take a 12.46 ERA into Monday's scheduled matchup against the Angels.

"I don't think I really had command of the inside the entire game," Detwiler said. "It kind of allows them to dive out there and really protect the outside. If that's the only way I'm throwing strikes, then that's going to play right into their hand. It was one time through the lineup and they realized that I wasn't throwing any strikes in so they took it out of their mind.

"Command was terrible today. If I want to help this team compete, I need to be a lot better than what I was today."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Four pitchers vying for spot in Rangers' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) With the addition of Yovani Gallardo, there is one less spot open in the Rangers' rotation. Derek Holland, Yu Darvish and Colby Lewis are also expected to be in the rotation, therefore the last spot could go to either Ross Detwiler, Nick Martinez, Nick Tepesch or Lisalverto Bonilla, per MLB.com.

"There is definitely a spot open," pitching coach Mike Maddux said. "You have to seize the opportunity. Nobody is given a job and once you earn a job, you still have to earn the right to stay here."


Rangers, Detwiler avoid arbitration, agree to $3.45 million deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) The Rangers and pitcher Ross Detwiler avoided arbitration just hours before Friday's deadline. According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, Detwiler and the Rangers settled at $3.45 million for 2015.

Detwiler was acquired by Texas from Washington via trade in early December. The 28-year-old Detwiler spent last season in the bullpen after spending most of the previous five seasons as a starter. He is 20-32 with a 3.82 ERA over parts of seven seasons in the majors.


Deal set - Ross Detwiler goes from Nationals to Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) It's official - the Rangers have confirmed that they have acquired pitcher Ross Detwiler from the Nationals for second baseman Chris Bostick and right-hander Abel De Los Santos.

Texas plans on using Detwiler in the starting rotation, where he's had some success. The right-hander was used exclusively out of the bullpen for pitching-rich Washington last season and struggled as a starter in 2013, but enjoyed a 10-8 season with a strong 3.40 ERA in 2012, mostly in that role.

Neither Bostick nor De Los Santos have reached the major league level, but the latter has been particularly impressive in the minors.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) The Rangers acquired pitcher Ross Detwiler from the Nationals in exchange for two minor leaguers, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The 28-year-old Detwiler spent last season in the Nationals' bullpen after spending most of the previous five seasons as a starter. He is 20-32 with a 3.82 ERA over parts of seven MLB seasons.


Report: Nationals discussing Detwiler, Clippard with clubs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) The Nationals are talking to other clubs about Ross Detwiler and Tyler Clippard, according to FoxSports.com.

With David Robertson and Andrew Miller off the market, Clippard becomes a much more intriguing trade piece. The 29-year-old posted a 2.18 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last season. Clippard has been a workhorse over his career, tossing at least 70 innings in each of the past five seasons. He's eligible for arbitration, and will become a free-agent following 2015.

Detwiler posted a 4.00 ERA out of the bullpen last season. He has experience as a starter, but likely won't reprise that role if he remains with the Nationas. Detwiler, 28, is also eligible for arbitration, and would become a free-agent following the season.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler is open to a trade, according to The Washington Post

The 28-year-old has been a starter most of his career, but was shifted to the bullpen last season. Though he was effective, Detwiler was relagated to being the team's long relief option/mop-up man. Detwiler doesn't have much of a role with the club, and his camp has suggested that the Nats pursue a trade if possible. Detwiler posted a 4.00 ERA over 63 innings. 


Ross Detwiler takes loss vs. Braves Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) 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.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Detwiler has a 4.00 ERA in 36 innings this season, all as a reliever. 


Ross Detwiler finally fine in Tuesday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) 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.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Williams wanted to make it clear it was not a demotion and he feels Detwiler can be "special" in relief.
