Nationals | Ross Detwiler with enhanced role

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:20:58 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Ross Detwiler will have a bigger role in the bullpen, according to manager Matt Williams. RP Jerry Blevins will be used as more of a left-handed specialist.

Fantasy Tip: Detwiler has a 1.23 ERA with a .146 opponents' batting average this season. He could sneak into the mix if Rafael Soriano continues to struggle. However, Drew Storen is first in line in that scenario.

Nationals | Ross Detwiler's role inconsistent

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 12:46:49 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Ross Detwiler has mainly been used as the team's long reliever or when the game is out of hand this year. He's only once been used to protect a lead, when the team was up six runs against the New York Mets. "It's difficult with Det, because we try to get him in situations where he can go one-plus," manager Matt Williams said. "It's been sporadic. So we'll look to get him in there more often, more regular basis. But with the game today, we've got to get him in there, because we need multiple innings. We were in the game at the time. In case we got back, we needed long (relief)." Detwiler has eight walks in 11 innings this year after typically being a control pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Detwiler is clearly one of those arms that is more comfortable starting instead of relieving. As long as he's pitching out of the bullpen, he has no fantasy allure.

Nationals | Ross Detwiler not expected to return

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 14:57:13 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Ross Detwiler (back) is unlikely to return this season with only 11 games remaining in the regular season. Detwiler threw three innings during a bullpen session Tuesday, Sept. 17, and will pitch in the instructional league Monday, Sept. 23. "If that's the plan, he might as well stay down there," manager Davey Johnson said. "I don't see it. If he gets four days off, there will only be one or two games left. I don't see the point in coming out just for one game for us. That's going to be a decision made down the road." Detwiler hasn't pitched since July 3.
