Detwiler (1-2) lasted just four innings, allowing six runs, 10 hits and one walk while striking out two in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

For the second straight start, Detwiler was hammered for five-plus runs in fewer than five innings. After spinning eight shutout innings on Aug. 10 in his first start for the A's, the southpaw has put up two performances that more likely resemble what can be expected from him. Detwiler is in line to make his next start at St. Louis on Friday, but he's best left on the wire in most formats.

Detwiler (1-1) was rocked for five runs on seven hits and four walks over just 4.2 innings in Monday's loss to the Rangers. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler came crashing back down to earth after surprisingly throwing eight shutout innings in his season debut as a starter. The 30-year-old's middling performance at the Triple-A level suggests this game's version is closer to his true level. That's a troubling realization with another road tilt coming up next for him Sunday against the White Sox.

Detwiler (1-0) shut the Orioles out for eight innings in his first MLB start of the year Wednesday, allowing just six hits and no walks with two strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Well, that was unexpected. The 30-year-old Detwiler was awful in Triple-A as well as in seven relief appearances while with the Indians, but has looked a lot better in the minors since being acquired by Oakland; even so, it was hard to see a start like this coming against the powerful Orioles. But the lefty did a good job of keeping the ball on the ground and maintaining his control, other than a couple wild pitches. The one-time top prospect will get a chance to show this was no fluke in another tough draw Monday against Texas.

Detwiler was called up from Triple-A Nashville, prior to his start against the Orioles on Wednesday, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler will get his first start in the majors this season after spending the last couple weeks with Triple-A Nashville after being acquired in mid-July. He has posted a 4.40 ERA throughout 86 innings in the minors this season, but has only tossed 4.2 innings in the majors, allowing three earned runs and a 1.50 WHIP.

Detwiler is expected to start Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Joe Stiglich of Comcast SportsNet California reports.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler will be recalled Wednesday and make his first MLB start of the season. Since being acquired by Oakland on July 17, Detwiler has played four games (23.1 innings) at Triple-A Nashville. In said games, Detwiler is 4-0 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. However, he's struggled with the long ball, as he's allowed four home runs in that time.

Detwiler was traded Sunday to the Athletics in exchange for cash considerations.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler will provide the A's with some rotation depth at Triple-A Nashville after Nick Tepesch was recently designated for assignment. Over 12 starts this season with Triple-A Columbus spanning 62.2 innings, Detwiler compiled a 4.60 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 41:21 K:BB ratio.

Detwiler is taking the mound Friday for Triple-A Columbus against Syracuse, Chase Hughes of CSNMA reports.

EDGE Analysis

Detailer has struggled in his last two starts for Columbus, giving up six and eight earned runs, respectively. His issues are across the board as he gave up seven-plus hits and three-plus walks in both those starts. He now carries a 5.84 ERA at the Triple-A level and his hopes of returning to the majors this season are looking slimmer.

Detwiler accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, Tribeinsider reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old struggled in seven appearances this season after posting a 7.25 ERA in 41 appearances last season between the Rangers and the Braves. After being designated for assignment at the end of April, Detwiler used the full week before accepting his assignment down to Triple-A.

Detwiler was designated for assignment Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler was struggling through his first seven appearances this season, posting a 5.79 ERA and 1.50 WHIP while striking out just three batters. He will head to Triple-A in order to make room in the Indians' bullpen for Tommy Hunter, who was activated from the 15-day DL in a corresponding move.

Detwiler threw 0.2 scoreless innings in relief Monday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler lowered his ERA to 5.79 in his seventh appearance of the season. Despite a pair of tough outings earlier this month, the left-hander has been a solid option out of the Cleveland bullpen. Other than Kyle Crockett, Detwiler is the only lefty in the Indians' bullpen, so he should continue to see opportunities as a middle-reliever.
