Detwiler pitched two perfect innings with three strikeouts in Wednesday's 8-0 win over Arizona. He did not factor in the decision.
Detwiler was first pitcher to take the mound in a bullpen game, so he wasn't expected to have a chance at earning a win. The 35-year-old southpaw got through his two innings on 23 pitches (18 strikes). He has a solid 2.53 ERA, but his 1.22 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB indicate he lacks a dominant edge to his pitching. Detwiler will likely continue to see most of his work in low-leverage bullpen assignments.
Detwiler is slated to start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, serving as the opening pitcher for what's expected to be a bullpen game, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Miami initially listed Pablo Lopez as its probable starter for Wednesday, but he'll be pushed back to Thursday's series finale in what amounts to an extra day of maintenance, according to Mish. Miami doesn't have a clear pitcher in its bullpen that's capable of serving as a bulk reliever, so neither Detwiler nor any of the arms that follow him are expected to cover more than three innings.
Detwiler pitched a scoreless first inning Sunday against the Giants. He did not allow a hit while walking and striking out a batter in 16 pitches.
Detwiler was used as an opener Sunday ahead of Paul Campbell. The 35-year-old issued a leadoff walk to Austin Slater but was able to get the next three hitters out to escape without any damage done. Detwiler has been a pleasant surprise this season, as he's fired 8.1 scoreless innings and owns a 10:5 K:BB thus far.
Detwiler is listed as the Marlins' starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Detwiler has previously made 95 big-league starts, but he's worked exclusively as a reliever since the start of the 2020 season. Considering that he's maxed out at 1.2 innings and 30 pitches over his nine relief appearances on the season, Detwiler will most likely be working as an opener in front of Rule 5 pick Paul Campbell, whom the Marlins initially planned to start Sunday.
Detwiler gave up a hit and a walk while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning during Friday's loss to the Giants.
The veteran lefty can't fill a LOOGY role any more due to MLB's new bullpen rules, but Detwiler has still been deployed in short stints, recording fewer than three outs in five of his nine appearances. His 1.23 ERA through 7.1 innings is solid, but a 9:4 K:BB indicates he's had a bit of good luck, and his low-leverage usage has left him without a hold, save or decision so far.
Detwiler is expected to begin the season in the Marlins' bullpen, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
The veteran southpaw has had a shaky spring, posting a 6.75 ERA and 5:3 K:BB over 6.2 innings, but the Marlins are giving more weight to his solid 3.20 ERA and 1.22 WHIP from 2020 when he was used exclusively in relief. Detwiler's career track record is spotty at best, and he will likely be limited to low-leverage situations.
Detwiler signed a one-year contract with the Marlins on Friday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Detwiler was designated for assignment by the White Sox in late September and elected free agency rather than accepting an outright assignment. The southpaw tossed 19.2 relief innings in 2020, posting a 3.20 ERA and 1.22 WHIP during the abbreviated season. Detwiler will attempt to maintain his production over a full year heading into his age-35 season.
Detwiler elected free agency Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Detwiler chose free agency after being designated for assignment Thursday. He was fairly effective in 19.2 innings of relief this season, posting a 3.20 ERA and 1.22 WHIP, which could keep him on a big-league roster next season for his 13th season in the league.
Detwiler was designated for assignment Thursday.
The White Sox activated a pair of hurlers (Carlos Rodon, Aaron Bummer) from the 45-day injured list and needed to clear a couple 40-man roster spots in the process. Detwiler had given up seven earned runs in 7.1 innings over his last seven appearances.
Detwiler struck out two over a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Cardinals.
Detwiler continued his scoreless season. He's allowed four hits and no walks while striking out nine over 11.1 innings. The 34-year-old Detwiler has been primarily a starter during his career, but he's thriving out of the bullpen in 2020, although a .148 BABIP suggests there's correction coming.
Detwiler is a candidate for the rotation if Carlos Rodon's shoulder injury forces him to miss time, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Detwiler was one of six relievers to fill in Monday after Rodon left with shoulder soreness. He allowed one hit and struck out three over 1.1 scoreless innings and earned his first victory of the season. The left-hander's been strong for the White Sox through 8.1 scoreless innings of relief, ceding two hits and no walks. If Rodon hits the injured list, Detwiler, who's been a starter throughout his career, is a logical choice to fill in. In 12 starts for the White Sox in 2019, Detwiler posted a 5.84 ERA, but he looks like a different pitcher in 2020.
Detwiler allowed one hit over two scoreless innings in Sunday's 9-2 win over Kansas City.
Detwiler has been lights out to start the season. He retired the first 16 men faced before giving up an eighth-inning single to Whit Merrifield, who was promptly dispatched on a double play. The 34-year-old lefty has allowed one hit and struck out four over seven innings.
Detwiler had his contract selected from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Detwiler will begin the season in a low-leverage relief role with the big club thanks to expanded rosters. Across 18 appearances with the White Sox in 2019, the southpaw notched a 6.59 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 69.2 innings.
The White Sox announced Monday that Detwiler will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.
Before spring training was suspended in mid-March, Detwiler, a non-roster invitee, was on the outside looking in for a spot in the White Sox's Opening Day rotation. While that still remains the case nearly four months later, the expanded roster will at least allow Detwiler to stick around with the White Sox when the 60-game season starts in late July. Assuming the White Sox have their ideal rotation intact for Opening Day, Detwiler will likely work out of the bullpen as a long reliever.
Detwiler has allowed six runs on 12 hits while striking out six over 7.1 spring innings, including two starts.
Detwiler was in and out of the White Sox's rotation in 2019, filling in for injured or under-performing starters. The left-hander posted a 6.59 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 69.2 innings over 18 appearances, including 12 starts. With the White Sox poised to be a contender in 2020, there will be limited room for a 34-year-old journeyman starter like Detwiler. He's most likely to start the season at Triple-A Charlotte and be on the short list of emergency starters, if one is needed.
Detwiler returned to the White Sox on a minor-league contract Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Detwiler spent the 2019 season with the White Sox, making 12 starts and 18 relief appearances. He didn't find much success, striking out just 14.6 percent of batters en route to a 6.59 ERA. With the White Sox attempting to push towards a playoff spot this season, they'll likely consider the veteran as little more than a backup plan.
Detwiler gave up two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out three through 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Sunday.
Detwiler gave up a home run in the first inning, but he only allowed one run in his last 4.1 innings before exiting the contest. Detwiler was making the start on only three days rest, so it was a respectable effort to make it through 5.1 frames. The 33-year-old finishes the season with a 3-5 record with a 6.59 ERA and 46 strikeouts through 69.2 innings.
Detwiler will start Sunday's season finale against the Tigers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Detwiler threw 65 pitches in his last outing Wednesday, so he's likely to be on a limited pitch count on three days rest. The 33-year-old has a 6.85 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 43:26 K:BB through 64.1 innings this season.
Detwiler (3-5) picked up the win in Wednesday's 8-3 victory over Cleveland, allowing three runs on five hits over five innings while striking out one.
The southpaw was far from dominant, but he generated plenty of weak contact while tossing 45 of 65 pitches for strikes to help deal a blow to the playoff chances of an AL Central rival. Assuming he doesn't take the mound again this year, Detwiler wraps up 2019 with a 6.85 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 43:26 K:BB through 64.1 innings.
Detwiler allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out two over five-plus innings in Tuesday's 9-8 extra-innings loss to the Twins.
Detwiler was brought back to the White Sox's rotation after Lucas Giolito (lat) was shut down, and it's very likely he'll finish the season as a starter. Detwiler's 6.98 ERA should sufficiently scare fantasy owners from streaming him when he's next scheduled to start Tuesday at home against the Indians.
