I just watched the highlights. There's no question that Walsh's error is an error. Routine grounder that he botches.,game_tab=videos,game_state=final,game=663416

For some reason we don't have Detmers' stats on the Angels. Despite those stats, he's at the top of BP's prospect rankings for the Angels, rolled out today.

  • 1.
  • Reid Detmers
  • P
  • Born: 1999-07-08
  • B: Left
  • T: Left
  • H: 6′ 2″
  • W: 210 lbs.
  • Drafted 10th overall in the 2020 draft, University of Louisville; signed for $4.67 million.

The Report: Detmers didn’t need much more than his pretty, plus-plus curve to dominate the upper minors, but he added a few ticks to his previously low-90s fastball as well. His slider also flashed plus, showing a different breaking ball look around 10 mph firmer than the hook. Then he got to the majors and found out the best hitters in the world are perfectly capable of squaring 94 mph as easily as 91 if it’s not located well. Detmers was still able to bamboozle big-league bats with his breaking balls—and he threw his slider or curve about half the time—but he’s going to need to refine his fastball command in order to put himself in spots where he can beat major league hitters with the secondary stuff. He has a long track record of performance, both in college and the minors, and the arsenal has two potential swing-and-miss secondaries. So we are considering his major league struggles more of a blip. It’s not nothing though. Blips do show up on your radar after all.

OFP: 55 / no. 3/4 starter
Variance: Low. Detmers would hardly be the first good pitching prospect to have to make some adjustments in the bigs. We think he makes them, but the fastball is not likely to be more than an average offering, so that might limit the upside some. —Jeffrey Paternostro 

Major league ETA: Debuted in 2021

Mark Barry’s Fantasy Take: I’ve been known to have a soft spot for Angels pitchers (your guess is as good as mine), but even with that in mind, I really like Detmers. The southpaw found a couple extra ticks for his heater, helping him to escape the dreaded “soft-tossing lefty” stigma. I don’t think he’s an ace, but he should solidify himself in the middle of the rotation fairly quickly. He’s a top-50 dynasty prospect for me.
