Oakland A's re-sign free agent LHP Ross Detwiler


The 2016 Tank Commander is back! Detwiler was an emergency innings-eater for the A's last year, pitching 9 games (7 starts) with awful results (6.14 ERA, 1.5 K/BB). Not really sure where there will be space for the 31-year-old in MLB or AAA, but that's kind of the point with pitching depth -- you can't imagine you might need Eric Surkamp until yadda yadda yadda you're breathing a sigh of relief that he's there to start the fifth game of the season.
