Texas Rangers SP Ross Detwiler was named the fourth starter and will pitch Thursday, April 9, against the Oakland Athletics.
Fantasy Tip: Detwiler ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is likely best left to the late rounds of drafts in AL-only formats. However, there are mixed formats which reward starters who also carry eligibility as a reliever and Detwiler qualifies. Still, he wasn't overly successful pitching out of the rotation through his 69 career starts -- 4.02 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 5.3 K/9. He is nothing more than a lottery ticket for FantasyScore contests in his first start, too.

Texas Rangers SP Ross Detwiler is vying for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, and he will have to contend with SP Nick Tepesch and a host of others in the spring if he wants the job.
Fantasy Tip: Detwiler showed some signs of life last season with the Washington Nationals, but he'll have to hold off Lisalverto Bonilla, Tepesch, Martin Perez and Anthony Ranaudo, among others, if he wants to win the job. FantasyScore owners can check back in at the end of March to see how the battle shakes down.

Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the team is continuing to look for starting pitching even after the acquisition of SP Ross Detwiler. "We've got a number of internal options coming to compete for a spot, all of them that we like," Daniels said. "But you can never have enough and we'll continue having conversations about adding another starter." The Rangers already have SPs Yu Darvish, Derek Holland, Colby Lewis, Detwiler, Nick Martinez and Nick Tepesch on their roster and minor league SPs Alex Gonzalez and Luke Jackson could also compete for a job during spring training.
