Ross Detwiler is back from the disabled list after missing four weeks with a strained oblique muscle and the left-hander will rejoin the Nationals’ rotation today against the Rockies.
Coming back to start at Coors Field is never a good thing and Detwiler wasn’t particularly sharp in a rehab outing Saturday at Single-A, allowing seven this in 3.2 innings. He was fantastic before the injury, posting a 2.76 ERA and 23/10 K/BB ratio in 46 innings, and while largely being a forgotten man in Washington’s rotation Detwiler has a 3.34 ERA in 45 starts since 2011.
