Nationals Recall Pitcher Ross Detwiler

The Nationals organization is full of young promising pitchers, and one of them will get another chance this weekend.

Bill Ladson of MLB.com reported today that the Nationals will recall left hander Ross Detwiler, and he will start this Sunday against the Brewers. Detwiler was Washington's first round draft pick in 2007 (No. 6 overall)  and although the pitcher has a 1-6 lifetime record in the majors, he has shown plenty of potential in his 16 career apperances, with 44 strike outs in 76 innings pitched.

Patrick Reddington of Federal Baseball has his most recent stats:

the Washington Nationals will turn to their '07 1st Round pick, left-hander Ross Detwiler, who was (2-2) with a 2.27 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 2.0 BB/9 and 8.3 K/9 over 8 rehab starts following surgery on his hip this past spring

The 24-year old will replace the injured and underperforming Luis Atilano in the starting rotation.
