Chris Young? As in the 6'10" soft-tossing Journeyman Chris Young? I hope Matt Williams taught him how to use PEDs.

Sent to the bullpen. According to Matt Williams, "It's not a demotion. We think he can be special out of the bullpen."

Last spot now between Taylor Jordan, Tanner Roark, and Chris Young.

Williams plans to decide by tomorrow.

Ross Detwiler expands his pitch menu
Right-handed hitters teed off on Ross Detwiler last season, regardless of what the southpaw threw them in his 13 major-league starts. They hit .346 off his sinker, .357 off his changeup, and .375 off his curveball; his fastball held them to a .241 average, but they still slugged .456, in large part because four of the five home runs they tallied came on heaters.

Now that Detwiler has competition from Taylor Jordan and Tanner Roark for the fifth spot in the Nationals’ rotation, he’s doing everything he can to improve on those numbers. One of his efforts is aimed at adding a new offering—specifically, a cutter.

Detwiler, who turns 28 on March 6, told reporters over the weekend that he’s “just trying to throw something else out there” to give hitters a “another look.” He spent most of the 2013 season on the disabled list with two injuries: a strained oblique that kept him out from May 16 through June 13 and a herniated disk in his lower back, which ended his season on June 29.

... if Detwiler cedes the last spot in the rotation to one of his right-handed competitors, he could give manager Matt Williams an extra lefty out of the bullpen. Detwiler’s rivals in that role would be Jerry Blevins, who was acquired from the Athletics earlier this winter, and Xavier Cedeno. If the cutter develops into an answer for glove-side batters, it might be the difference between a specialist role and a setup job.

As the logs show, been a fan of Detwiler for a few years. I mean, a 6'5" lefty who hits in the mid-90's on the gun? Who wouldn't?

Expectations have tempered with Roark and Jordan in the mix for that 5th rotation spot, but Detwiler is still a nice arm for our purposes.

One of my reserve picks in CBS that I hope pans out. I am sure he will garner a handful of starts, at least.
