Description: Washington starter Ross Detwiler will begin the season in the bullpen, Nats manager Matt Williams said Monday. SOURCE: Adam Kilgore, Washington Post
Insight: Detwiler had a solid 3.59 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP in 235 2/3 innings the last two seasons, but his 5.5 K/9 didn't help fantasy owners much. The final spot in Washington's rotation will come down to Tanner Roark and Taylor Jordan.
 
8/3/2013 7:05:00 PM
Description: Washington starter Ross Detwiler has been diagnosed with a herniated disc in his lower back, according to Nationals manager Davey Johnson, and could miss the remainder of the season.
Insight: Detwiler didn't do much even when he was healthy, compiling a 2-7 record with a 4.04 ERA and 1.486 WHIP.

Insight: Can things get any worse for the Nationals right now? They've lost six straight, they fired their hitting coach earlier in the week and now this? Just brutal. Detwiler is expected to miss at least another month though it barely matters anymore. Barring some kind of miracle, this looks like a lost season.
 
7/23/2013 5:57:00 PM
Description: According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, Nationals left-hander Ross Detwiler will have his back examined.
Insight: Detwiler flew to Los Angeles Tuesday to meet with a specialist. The lefty is out indefinitely with nagging soreness in his lower back.
 
7/19/2013 8:17:00 PM
Description: According to Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com, Nationals lefty Ross Detwiler's scheduled bullpen session Friday was canceled. Detwiler is still feeling discomfort in his back after throwing off flat ground Thursday.
Insight: Detwiler was placed on the DL July 7 with a lower back strain. He is doubtful to start Tuesday and is questionable to return to start one of the games in next Friday's doubleheader against the Mets. "For me, he would have to throw today or tomorrow and do a side (session) and then pitch in a (rehab) game," manager Davey Johnson said. "And I don't think we're going to do it by then. But I'm going to put that question to our great medical staff, see if they can't get him ready to go."
 
7/16/2013 8:58:00 PM
Description: According to the Washington Post, Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler (back) will likely not be ready to make a rehab start this week.
Insight: That means his start five days after the All-Star break is in jeopardy. The left-hander is on the disabled list with a lower back strain.
 
7/6/2013 9:31:00 PM
Description: The Nationals placed starter Ross Detwiler on the 15-day DL on Saturday.
Insight: He's out with a back injury. It's Detwiler's second trip to the DL this season. Dan Haren (4-9, 6.15 ERA) will start in Detwiler's place Monday against Philadelphia.
 
Cold7/6/2013 6:04:00 PM
Description: Nationals lefthander Ross Detwiler tweaked his back Saturday while throwing a side session and now he's questionable to start Monday's game against Philadelphia. SOURCE: Dan Kolko, MASN
Insight: Detwiler got off to a nice start but he's been in free-fall mode for over a month now. July 10th will mark the two-month anniversary of his last victory. For fantasy purposes (and maybe all purposes) Detwiler (2-7, 4.04 ERA) looks like a lost cause.
 
Cold7/1/2013 4:45:00 PM
Description: Washington pitcher Ross Detwiler (back) threw a bullpen session Monday and manager Davey Johnson said he is confident the lefty will start Wednesday, against Milwaukee according to Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com.
Insight: Detwiler spent a month on the DL with an oblique injury and has gone 0-2 with a 7.32 ERA in four starts since returning. The Nationals don't believe his lower back stiffness is related to his previous injury.
 
Cold6/30/2013 1:33:00 PM
Description: Washington pitcher Ross Detwiler (back) will throw a side session Monday before being cleared for Wednesday's start, according to Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com.
Insight: Detwiler spent a month on the DL with an oblique injury and has gone 0-2 with a 7.32 ERA in four starts since returning. The Nationals don't believe his lower back stiffness is related to his previous injury.
 
Cold6/23/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: The Rockies pounded Washington lefty Ross Detwiler for nine hits and seven runs over 3 2/3 innings Sunday.
Insight: Detwiler has faced Colorado in both starts since coming off the disabled list and allowed 16 hits and 11 runs in 9 2/3 innings. He'll take a 4.18 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP into his next start against the Mets on the road.
 
6/11/2013 7:21:00 PM
Description: Nationals starter Ross Detwiler (oblique) will return from the DL to start Thursday against Colorado, according to Amanda Comak of the Washington Times.
Insight: Detwiler (2-4, 2.76 ERA) hasn't pitched since May 15 due to a strained oblique. Pitching in Colorado Thursday makes him a risky play, but he should post solid numbers going forward.
 
6/8/2013 9:42:00 PM
Description: Nationals lefthander Ross Detwiler seemed encouraged after making a rehab start for Single-A Potomac on Saturday. Detwiler has been on the disabled list with a strained oblique. SOURCE: Nationals.com

Insight: Detwiler last pitched on May 15 due to a strained oblique. He "threw the heck out of the ball" in his bullpen session Wednesday, manager Davey Johnson said. However, the team will have to make sure Detwiler doesn't have any tightness in his oblique over the next few days. Detwiler made it through a bullpen session on May 18 but felt tightness the next day and had to be placed on the DL.
 
6/4/2013 5:28:00 PM
