Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi is working on a new split-fingered pitch that acts like a changeup with late downward movement. He struggled to control the pitch during his outing Monday, March 10. Odorizzi limited damage, though, as he remains firmly in competition with SPs Cesar Ramos, Erik Bedard and Nathan Karns for the final rotation spot. Manager Joe Maddon said the decision won't come down to spring statistics.

Washington Nationals SP Ross Detwiler (back) was throwing 94-96 mph during the instructional league during his rehab, and he feels great about his health heading into spring training next year. However, he'll have to compete for a rotation spot after the team added SP Doug Fister in a trade. SPs Taylor Jordan, Tanner Roark, Ross Ohlendorf, Nathan Karns and Sammy Solis are other options to compete with Detwiler. He could also serve as a lefty reliever out of the bullpen.

Washington Nationals SP Ross Detwiler (oblique) is on track to start against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, June 2, but the team wants to see how Detwiler is feeling before calling up P Nathan Karns from the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Oblique injuries are tricky, so it's not a lock that Detwiler will be activated from the DL for that start. If he can't go, Karns would be nothing more than a spot starter for those interested in deep NL leagues.
