Detmers is in the midst of an impressive rookie season. Tuesday night’s outing lowered his ERA to 3.77 on the year. He entered this campaign as one of the top left-handed pitching prospects in all of baseball.
He was sensational during his 3 seasons at Louisville. He was named ACC Pitcher of the Year in 2019 as a sophomore. He would have had a chance to repeat as a junior in 2020 if not for the pandemic.
He quickly rose through the Angels system and debuted with the big league club in 2021 — just over a year after he was selected in the first round of the MLB Draft.
