Detwiler was granted release from Oakland's organization and is now a free agent, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Prior to his release, Detwiler threw 14 innings over 14 games at Triple-A Nashville. In that time he gave up 10 runs on 15 hits and eight walks, giving him a 6.43 ERA and 1.64 WHIP. Detwiler doesn't offer much fantasy value, as he's finished the last two seasons with an ERA above 6.00.
Detwiler re-signed with the A's on a minor-league contract Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Detwiler opted out of his initial contract with the Athletics last Sunday after he was informed he wouldn't be on the team's Opening Day roster. After weighing his options, the 31-year-old is back with the A's and will head to Triple-A Nashville to open the season.
Detwiler opted out of his contract with the Athletics on Sunday and will become a free agent, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Detwiler was informed that he would not make the team's Opening Day roster, so he decided to exercise the opt-out in his contract. He'll likely find another home in 2017.
Detwiler is expected to opt out of his contract Sunday since he won't make Oakland's final 25-man roster, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Detwiler has struggled this spring with a 11.88 ERA. He'll likely sign with another club and begin the season in Triple-A.
Detwiler gave up three earned runs on three hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning in Thursday's 15-5 Cactus League win over the Brewers. Detwiler came on in the ninth but retired just two of eight batters, raising his spring ERA to 11.88 in the process. The 31-year-old has come unraveled over his last two outings after a strong start to the spring, as he's surrendered eight earned runs over his last 1.1 innings. Given his recent struggles, his bid for a bullpen spot could be in jeopardy.
