ANAHEIM (Calif.) — The Los Angeles Angels Optioned Reid Detmers Just six games after the no-hitter by the rookie left-hander, the minors were called.
Detmers was assigned by the Angels to Triple A Salt Lake on Wednesday. It came just one day after Detmers made his sixth consecutive winless appearance following his no-hitter against Tampa Bay in May 10.
Detmers, 22 years old, became the youngest Angels pitcher ever to throw no-hitter in the 12-0 victory over Rays at Angel Stadium. It was his 11th career appearance.
Detmers is 0-2 and has a 5.67 ERA from six starts. In those 27 innings combined, Detmers has allowed eight homers while allowing 13 walks. This is in addition to the Angels' prolonged slump.
Detmers gave up five hits and five RBIs in five innings Tuesday night. However, he was unable to make a decision in Tuesday's Angels 11-11 loss to Kansas City.
Angels also used right-handed relievers Jimmy Herget A shoulder injury put him on the 10-day injured roster. Los Angeles recalls right-handers Elvis Peguero, Oliver Ortega, to fill the two spots on its open roster.
Detmers is a 2-2 pitcher with a 4.66 ERA over 12 starts this season for Angels. The Angels hoped Detmers, their 2020 first-rounder, was ready to make a permanent move in the majors.
Instead, he'll get more seasoning as Los Angeles continues its annual search to find competent starting pitching.
The club already demoted fellow young homegrown starter José Suarez to the minors after he began the season in the rotation alongside Detmers. Right-hander Griffin CanningThe 2020 AL Gold Glove winner, Corey Seager, is still recovering from a back injury and has not pitched this season.
