Reid Detmers News
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Reid Detmers is no longer starting Sunday's series finale against the Oakland Athletics. The 24-year-old was slated to take his final turn in the rotation but now it'll be Carson Fulmer serving as an opener, most likely. Detmers had a few moments of brilliance this season but was frustratingly inconsistent overall. He'll finish the 2023 season with an underwhelming 4-10 record, 4.48 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 168:60 K/BB ratio over 148 2/3 innings (28 starts). He's still a name to keep an eye on for next year in fantasy due to his strikeout upside.
Los Angeles Angels left-hander Reid Detmers was at the top of his game on Wednesday night against the division-rival Texas Rangers in a 2-0 victory. Detmers tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings while giving up just one hit, walking four and striking out five to pick up his third win of the season. Not many folks would have expected this dominating of a performance against one of the best offenses in baseball, especially after the 24-year-old southpaw had allowed 14 earned runs over just 6 1/3 innings in his last two starts. The Rangers didn't pick up their first hit until the eighth inning. In his third season with the Halos, Detmers has been highly inconsistent, pitching to a 4.93 ERA (4.25 FIP), 1.36 WHIP, 48 walks and a career-high 136 strikeouts in 115 innings over his 22 starts.
Los Angeles Angeles starting pitcher Reid Detmers continued to punch batters out in Monday's 2-1 win over the White Sox. The 23-year-old pitched seven innings, allowing one run on two hits (including a home run) and two walks with 10 strikeouts. Despite the 1-5 record, Detmers has pitched well overall and has seen an uptick in strikeouts to the tune of a 3.77 ERA and 11.08 K/9 rate. He has now pitched six or more innings in three consecutive starts and has struck out eight or more in his last four starts. He will look to continue both streaks in his next matchup, which will be a tough one against the Diamondbacks.
Los Angeles Angels starter Reid Detmers came into 2022 on the heels of posting a 7.40 ERA during his rookie season. He improved his numbers exponentially, producing a 3.77 ERA with seven wins and a 1.21 WHIP over 25 starts. Detmers' 3.79 FIP supports his gains after improving his strikeout rate (18.8% to 22.6%) and walk rate (10.9% to 8.5%). The 23-year-old owned an excellent 29.1% chase rate, and after feeble whiff rates before July, he got whiffs at a 26% clip over the final three months. Considering Detmers' minor league strikeout rate of 43.7%, he should keep progressing in that department. The lefty's arsenal contains four pitches; four-seamer, slider, curveball, and changeup. Detmers kept using his slider more and more this season, reaching a usage rate of 33% in September, and it posted a .204 xBA and 28.7% whiff rate. His most used pitch, the fastball, got better as the year went on, generating more whiffs, especially in July (31.0%) and August (29.9%). It's hard to ignore Detmers' release point change that might be responsible for his growth. In 2021, his average horizontal release point was 2.26 feet, and it kept declining throughout '22, reaching 1.64 feet by the season's end. It's been difficult for Detmers to avoid hard contact, and his 0.91 HR/9 and .231 batting average this year didn't match his 36th-percentile barrel rate and 28th-percentile average exit velocity. However, his potential strikeout numbers and high ceiling outweigh a possibly inflated ERA and WHIP. Fantasy managers should be confident drafting Detmers at his ADP of 221 and hope he can deliver similar numbers to his second half; 3.36 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 25.3% strikeout rate.
