Reid Detmers News
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Reid Detmers didn't last long on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners, pitching just 1 2/3 innings in the 7-3 victory. He gave up two runs, both coming in the second inning, on three hits, two walks and a couple of strikeouts. It was his first start since Aug. 21 before landing on the injured list and making a brief trip to the minors. In five starts this season, he posted a 7.40 ERA, 19 strikeouts and a 1.79 WHIP across 20 2/3 innings. It's unclear what the plans are for Detmers to begin next season, but he does project as a front-of-the-rotation starter. From what he showed this year, though, he shouldn't be drafted much next season.
The Los Angeles Angels have recalled starting pitcher Reid Detmers from Triple-A Salt Lake, the team announced. Detmers will start Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners after the team shut down Shohei Ohtani for the season. He's made four starts for the Angels earlier this season before landing on the injured list and being demoted to the minors on September 23. He owns a 7.11 ERA with 17 strikeouts and 1.68 WHIP over 19 innings pitched. He hasn't shown much thus far in his young career and should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues.
The Los Angeles Angels have activated starting pitcher Reid Detmers from the 10-day injured list and optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. Detmers was placed on the IL on August 25 after a positive COVID-19 test. The 2020 first-rounder has started four games thus far, posting a 7.11 ERA, with 17 strikeouts and five home runs allowed over 19 IP. He has just 60 minor league innings under his belt but has put up much better numbers with a 3.15 ERA and 106 strikeouts. Detmers had little fantasy relevance already and probably won't appear with the Angels again this season unless Shohei Ohtani can't make his final start. With top of the rotation potential, however, he's a good arm to stash in dynasty leagues.
The Angels' first-round selection in the 2020 draft, Detmers is a polished college arm that could reach the Majors by the midpoint of the 2021 season. He's shown above-average command and control of his average stuff. He also has strong makeup and a drive to succeed. All those attributes should combine to help his stuff play up and move the dial from a No. 4 starter to more of a No. 3 hurler for a club desperately in need of reliable innings from its starting rotation. The lefty has four pitches that project to be at least average offerings but he'll need to show the ability to consistently work down in the zone to prevent home-run issues when big-league hitters catch up to his heater, which has just average velocity. Detmers isn't someone you're going to target in redraft leagues during your initial draft, however, he bears watching throughout the season and could open the year in Double-A despite his lack of experience. If he gets a chance with the Angels in the second half of the season, he could be worth a flier as he should settle in quickly thanks to his skill set and maturity. He's a consideration for dynasty leagues but there are other higher-ceiling arms that you may want to target before giving Detmers a shot.
