Braves Sign LHP Ross Detwiler

After rejected a minor league assignment from the Rangers, free agent LHP Ross Detwiler signs with the Braves

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

On a busy day for the Braves after extending the entire coaching staff, they also signed free agent LHP Ross Detwiler

Detwiler pitched for the Washington Nationals for 7 seasons primarily as a starter before moving on to the Rangers splitting time between starting and the bullpen.

Detwiler's time with the Rangers was less that ideal, although he was solid as a pitcher for the Nationals.

While this isn't a big name signing, it does create some depth in the bullpen, especially in the wake of closer Jason Grilli's season ending injury.
