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.
Detwiler will start Tuesday's game against the Twins, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Detwiler was booted from Chicago's starting rotation at the beginning of the month, but following a season-ending injury to Lucas Giolito (lat), Detwiler appears to be in line to finish 2019 as a starter. He lasted just 2.2 frames in his last outing Sept. 2 against Cleveland, surrendering four runs on four hits and six walks.
Detwiler will lose his starting spot to Dylan Covey on Saturday against the Angels, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Covey isn't particularly young at 28 years old, but he's still notably younger than the 33-year-old Detwiler, so it may be hard for the latter to get opportunities for the rebuilding White Sox the rest of the way. The veteran has recorded a poor 6.79 ERA in 54.1 innings this season.
Detwiler (2-5) took the loss against the Indians on Monday, giving up four earned runs on four hits over 2.2 innings, walking six without recording a strikeout in an 11-3 loss for the White Sox.
Detwiler just couldn't find the strike zone in this one, as he issued a season-high six free passes, pumping his pitch count up to 81 before he exited the contest after just 2.2 innings. He now carries an ugly 6.79 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 40:22 K:BB across 54.1 innings.
Detwiler (2-4) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over four innings to take the loss against Minnesota on Wednesday.
Coming off his best start of the season, Detwiler was handed an early 1-0 lead after one inning but ceded three runs in the second and two more in the third. His ERA rose to 5.96, but Detwiler's expected to take the ball every fifth day for the time being. He'll make his next start Monday on the road against Cleveland.
Detwiler (2-3) earned the win Thursday after holding the Rangers to one run on three hits with eight strikeouts over six innings.
It was a solid bounce-back performance for the southpaw, who had allowed eight runs over his last two starts. Detwiler did not issue any walks en route to recording a career-high eight strikeouts and earning his first win since June 28 against the Twins. The 33-year-old will take a 5.51 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 35:12 K:BB into a rematch against Minnesota on Wednesday.
Manager Rick Renteria said Detwiler will start Thursday against the Rangers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Detwiler has allowed eight runs over his past two starts (7.2 innings) and owns an unsightly 6.10 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 27:12 K:BB in 41.1 big-league innings this season.
Detwiler allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three across 4.2 innings Wednesday against Houston. He did not factor into the decision.
Detwiler allowed at least one run in his first three innings, though he did retire the last five batters he faced prior to an error by Jose Abreu. He held the Astros to two extra-base hits, but was hurt in the third inning when the first three batters he faced reached base on singles. Detwiler has had a fluid role this season, though this was his third consecutive appearance as a starter and he is now fully stretched out. Overall, he has a 5.63 ERA and 1.51 WHIP with 25 strikeouts across 38.1 innings for the season. He'll draw his next start Tuesday at Minnesota.
Detwiler (1-3) allowed two runs on four hits with four walks and four strikeouts across 5.1 innings while taking a loss against the Athletics on Friday.
The 33-year-old gave up two home runs, but that's it, as he avoided any of the walks from coming around to score. Detwiler has lost two straight and yielded four homers in his last pair of starts, but he also owns a respectable 3.27 ERA during that stretch. However, it's unlikely Detwiler continues to post that decent ERA if he keeps giving up homers, especially with that amount of walks. This season, he owns a 5.35 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 22 strikeouts in 33.2 innings. Detwiler will start next at home Wednesday against the Astros.
Detwiler will start Friday against the Athletics, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Detwiler will stick in the rotation for at least one more turn through after allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out six across 5.2 innings in a losing effort to the Phillies over the weekend. It remains to be seen whether the veteran left-hander will get another start beyond Friday's outing, though that could depend on how he fares.
Detwiler is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Phillies, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
He'll step in as the White Sox's new fifth starter in place of Dylan Covey, who was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after failing to record an out while giving up five runs in his outing last weekend versus the Twins. Detwiler came on in relief in that same game and served up two runs over two innings, but that was apparently good enough for him to earn another look in Chicago's rotation. Detwiler hasn't surpassed 50 pitches in any appearance since July 18, so he'll likely be subjected to some sort of workload restriction Saturday, hurting his chances of factoring into any decision.
