It’s official: Rangers acquire lefty Detwiler from Nationals

 

STEPHEN HAWKINS, AP Sports Writer

The Texas Rangers have completed a trade to acquire left-handed pitcher Ross Detwiler from the Washington Nationals for two minor leaguers.

The Rangers announced Friday that they have sent infielder Chris Bostick and right-hander Abel De Los Santos to Washington in exchange for the former first-round draft pick.

While Detwiler spent last season in the bullpen, he is expected to get a chance to earn a spot in the Rangers’ starting rotation.

Detwiler has started 69 of his 132 major league games, all with the Nationals, who took him with the sixth pick in the 2007 draft. He has a career record of 20-32 with a 3.82 ERA.

Bostick was at High-A Myrtle Beach last season, while De Los Santos made 41 combined appearances for Myrtle Beach and Class-A Hickory.
