The Atlantic League’s York Revolution has reached agreement on a deal with lefty Ross Detwiler, per a club announcement.
Detwiler, who recently turned 32 years of age, is a nine-year MLB veteran. Over 578 total MLB frames, he owns a lifetime 4.36 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9. Detwiler’s best season came back in 2012 with the Nationals, when he pitched to a 3.40 ERA over 164 1/3 frames.
More recently, opportunities have been tougher to come by for a pitcher who was once taken with the sixth overall pick of the 2007 draft. Detwiler was knocked around in 2016 with the Indians and A’s. And he failed to crack the majors last year for the first time since 2009, as he struggled through just 23 Triple-A innings on the season.
