Detwiler gave up three earned runs on three hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning in Thursday's 15-5 Cactus League win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler came on in the ninth but retired just two of eight batters, raising his spring ERA to 11.88 in the process. The 31-year-old has come unraveled over his last two outings after a strong start to spring, as he's surrendered eight earned runs over his last 1.1 innings over that span. Given his recent struggles, his bid for a bullpen spot could be in jeopardy.

Detwiler fired a perfect fourth inning in Sunday's 5-4 Cactus League win over the Mariners, recording one strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler now has three scoreless innings to his name this spring, surrendering just one hit and limiting opposing hitters to an .091 average. The 31-year-old southpaw remains a candidate for the fifth starter role, but Jesse Hahn and Raul Alcantara continue to be the presumed frontrunners for the job.

Detwiler, a non-roster invitee to spring training who spent time with the A's last season, developed a cutter this offseason, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "It's just another look, all my pitches fade off arm-side so I have something going the other way," Detwiler said. "It puts something in the hitters' heads, they can't necessarily dive out."

EDGE Analysis

After tossing eight scoreless frames in his Oakland debut last Aug. 11, Detwiler struggled the rest of the way, finishing the 2016 campaign with a 6.10 ERA and 1.60 WHIP over 48.2 innings. The 32-year-old decided to add a cutter to his arsenal this offseason at the encouragement of A's coaches Curt Young and Scott Emerson and has had some early success with it in bullpens this spring. Bruce Maxwell, who's caught the veteran in those sessions, has noted the pitch has "got late break to it" and could be key in Detwiler's quest for a roster spot. The veteran southpaw is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut in Saturday's opener against the Cubs following starter Jesse Hahn.

Detwiler agreed to a minor league contract with the A's on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The lefty tossed eight scoreless innings his debut with Oakland in August but it was all downhill from there -- Detwiler gave up 30 runs in his next eight appearances (36 innings). While he will return to the organization and get to make his case for a roster spot in spring training, Detwiler will likely open the year as depth in the minors. He's posted 5.5 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 rates in parts of nine major league seasons.

Detwiler (2-4) gave up eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits over 2.2 innings of relief against the Angels on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Yikes. He was already having a bad season, but this was the cherry on top. This may well end up being Detwiler's final appearance of the season, in which case he'll finish with a 6.10 ERA over 48.2 innings split between the A's and Indians.

Detwiler allowed two runs on five hits and three walks across 5.1 innings Sunday versus the Rangers. He struck out one and improved to 2-3 with the win.

EDGE Analysis

Detwiler threw just 55 percent of his pitches for strikes Sunday, but he was able to keep the Texas hitters off balance and only allowed one extra-base hit. He did well to scatter baserunners for the most part and was only scored upon in the third inning as four straight men reached base before Carlos Gomez was thrown out at home to end the inning. Detwiler has been far from impressive this season, as he still owns a 5.09 ERA and has just 26 strikeouts across 46 innings, and he will make his final start of the season Sunday against this same Rangers club.
