2 Comments

Washington has avoided arbitration with Ross Detwiler, signing the left-hander to a one-year, 2.3375 million deal.

Detwiler was arbitration eligible for the first time after throwing 164 innings with a 3.00 ERA for the Nationals last season and is slated to be the fifth starter in a stacked rotation this year.

At age 26 he has a 4.02 ERA in 56 career starts and won’t be a free agent until after the 2015 season.
