Rangers acquire Ross Detwiler from Nationals


Washington has sent left-hander Ross Detwiler to Texas for a pair of minor leaguers, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

Detwiler was primarily a starter for the Nationals from 2009-2013, but moved to the bullpen full time this year with underwhelming results. He posted a 4.00 ERA and 39/21 K/BB ratio in 63 innings.

As a starter Detwiler has a 4.02 ERA in 376 career innings through age 29 and the Rangers apparently plan to put him into the rotation full time.
