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.

Ross Detwiler records first save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) 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


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 | CBSSports.com

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) Nationals pitchers Ross Detwiler and Taylor Jordan, both of whom are competing for the last rotation spot, combined to yield just one run in five innings Saturday against Atlanta. But the latter was most impressive.

Ross Detwiler surrenders three earned runs in spring debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler surrendered four runs (three earned) on five hits while striking out three in 1 1/3 innings in his spring debut Monday as the Yankees beat the Nationals, 4-2.

It was Detwiler's first game action since July after his 2013 season ended prematurely due to a back injury. Manager Matt Williams was encouraged by the outing despite the results.

"It didn't go the way [Detwiler] wanted it to, but I thought it went well despite the outcome," Williams told MLB.com. "The results aren't always going to be there in the spring."

Detwiler is competing for the final spot in the rotation with Tanner Roark and Taylor Jordan.


Ross Detwiler hopes to be better with cutter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2014) Nationals right-hander Ross Detwiler has added a cutter to his repertoire, which he hopes will give hitters something else to think about in 2014. He has thrown about 80 percent fastballs in the past.

Coaches advised him that a cutter would work particularly well with his delivery. He had previously struggled with it when attempting to throw it. But he told the Washington Post that if now feels "free and easy" when he throws it in bullpen sessions.

Detwiler is in the competition for the fifth spot in a deep Washington rotation despite losing the second half of last year to a back injury.


Ross Detwiler ready for competition


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler is ready to fight for his job, according to The Washington Post.

Detwiler spent the offseason at home in Missouri, training in order to reclaim the fifth starter spot. He added 10 pounds of muscle this offseason. Detwiler said he's glad to be participating in just spring training this year. Last spring, he took part in the World Baseball Classic, and admits that knocked him out of his rhythm. 

Detwiler believes that he'll win the job if he can stay healthy. "Every time I’ve been healthy and I’ve been out there throwing, I did just fine," Detwiler said. "If I have to prove anything, it’s just health." 

Last season, Detwiler had a 4.04 ERA in 71 1/3 innings. 


Ross Detwiler comfortable competing for rotation spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Nationals starting pitcher Ross Detwiler, who missed most of the 2013 season due to a back injury, said he's fine with competing for a spot in the team's rotation.

"I’ve done it every single year, so it’s nothing different for me," Detwiler said, per CSNWashington.com. "I’ve never had a spot just given to me; it’s always been up for grabs. I’ve won it in the past. I think I can do it again if I stay healthy and throw well."

Detwiler, who will be competing with the likes of Tanner Roark and Taylor Jordan, said he learned a lot while trying to pitch through an injury last season.

"Every injury is going to be different, but I’m not going to try to push through like I did last year," he said. "I started the year great, then I had a little oblique problem in L.A. and tried to push through that and do everything I could. And I lost my location. I was walking a few people and then I’d throw a ball down the middle and get hit hard. The thing I guess I learned the most is how I have to feel before I have to sit out, instead of just trying to push through it."

Detwiler said he has no lingering concerns after pitching well in the instructional league in September. He will be on a normal routine this spring.

"I feel like I’m ready to go already," he said. "I’m kind of itching to get back out there."


Ross Detwiler gets $3 million from Nationals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The Nationals and pitcher Ross Detwiler have come to terms on a one-year contract worth $3 million, according to the New York Post.

Detwiler, who may be a candidate for the last spot in the rotation, can earn an additional $50,000 if he surpasses the 180-inning mark in 2014. Detwiler was used exclusively as a pitcher and went 2-7 with a 4.04 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP over 71 1/3 innings (13 starts).


Ross Detwiler not assured spot in rotation


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) 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
(11/24/2013) 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.


Ross Detwiler to skip winter ball


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2013) 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.

"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
(9/20/2013) 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.
