The Angels assigned Detmers to Triple-A Salt Lake, a day after he made his sixth straight appearance without a win since his no-hitter against Tampa Bay on May 10.
Detmers, 22, became the youngest pitcher in Angels history to throw a no-hitter during that 12-0 win over the Rays at Angel Stadium, doing so in just the 11th start of his career. race.
But Detmers is 0-2 with a 5.67 ERA in his six starts since that historic night. He allowed eight home runs and walked 13 in those 27 combined innings, his performance slipping along with the Angels’ long losing streak.
Detmers allowed five hits and five runs in five innings in his most recent major league start and did not get a decision in the Angels’ 12-11, 11-inning loss to Kansas City.
The Angels also placed right-handed reliever Jimmy Herget on the 10-day disabled list with a shoulder injury. Los Angeles called up right-handers Elvis Peguero and Oliver Ortega to fill their two open roster spots.
Detmers is 2-3 with a 4.66 ERA in 12 starts this season for the Angels, who were hoping their precocious 2020 first-round pick was ready for a permanent move to the majors.
