Reid Detmers girlfriend Rachael Cawthon is a graduate of the University of Louisville. Rachael and Reid started dating in 2019.

From being by their side when Reid was announced as the overall 10th pick in the MLB draft to sitting alongside them in the stadium during his debut game, Rachael has already become a big part of the Detmers family.

The couple started dating while they were pursuing their respective careers at Louisville. Though there isn't any sign that Rachael, like her partner, was interested in sports. The 24-year-old was a student much more focused on academics graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering in 2020.

2022 was an up-and-down year for the young pitcher. If he pitched a no-hitter in May, then in June, he was dropped to the minor league. But was able to make a comeback and looked like a brand-new player. So, the 2023 MLB season comes in with many expectations for the Angels' future star.
