128. . P. Chicago White Sox. Ross Detwiler. 54. player

Ross Detwiler has had a very interesting career. He spent the first seven years of his career with the Washington Nationals. Before coming to the White Sox in 2019, he never spent more than one year with another team since Washington. Well, this is his second year with the White Sox but it was the first that he was projected to exclusively be a reliever.  Well, plans change when injuries change them so maybe he can get a start here on Saturday.

Detwiler has been a great reliever for the White Sox so far this season. He has exceeded every expectation that we had for him through the first 12 games. He has 8.1 innings pitched and he hasn’t given up a single run. He has credit for a win for a 1-0 record to go with a 0.240 WHIP and seven strikeouts. This has been a nice little run for Detwiler and it may have just earned him an opportunity to start.

At 34 years old, he isn’t the face of the rebuild by any means but he can help this young team win baseball games in a very pivotal year for team development. They are 7-5 with a chance to be a playoff team for the first time since 2008. Detwiler might have a chance to push them over the edge into the dance. Credit to him for playing so well so far this season. If he doesn’t start, hopefully, he is able to keep up the good work in the bullpen.
