Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray trying to find change-up
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray has spent the spring trying to improve his breaking ball. In the process, he lost his change-up.
"It'll come back," Ray said, per Nick Piecoro of AZCentral.com. "I threw it (Thursday) and it's already starting to come back. I just have to throw it more."
Ray changed the finger position on his change-up grip to help get it back to its previous effectiveness.
"Granted, yeah, I've lost a little touch for my change-up, but the slider is where it needs to be right now," he said. "I feel like I can always find the change-up. I've had it for so long. It's a matter of two bullpens and then maybe a game and I'll have it back. But I definitely feel like I'm in a better place right now."
Stewart: Ray would be up for bullpen role, if he doesn't make rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said if pitcher Robbie Ray doesn't secure a spot in the rotation, then he will be considered for a bullpen role, per The Arizona Republic.
Ray is 1-2 with a 5.25 ERA in four spring outings (three starts). He has 12 strikeouts in 12 innings.
Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray reaches pitch limit in just three innings
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray struggled to find the zone Sunday, going three innings and allowing two runs on five hits against the Rockies.
Ray, who hasn't gone beyond the fourth inning yet this spring, threw 74 pitches in his outing, leaving manager Chip Hale a bit nervous, reports MLB.com.
"Robbie was a little bit erratic. The stuff was there. ... The tempo of the game just wasn't very good," Hale said.
Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray impresses in outing Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/16/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray threw four innings, allowing just one run in Monday's game against the White Sox. Ray touched 96 mph on his fastball multiple times in the game and wants to build off the appearance, reports AZCentral.com.
"I definitely feel like if I can build off of this," Ray said, "and just fine-tune a couple of more things, start throwing my change-up a little more, I think there's definitely a good chance (of winning a rotation spot)."
Arizona's coaching staff was also impressed with Ray.
"That's what you want to see," pitching coach Mike Harkey said. "Every starter is going to have one or two innings where things can go really wrong and if you don't recognize it and fix it quick, it gets bad. He didn't let it snowball, and that's good.
"That's him; that's what we traded for," manager Chip Hale said. "When (General Manager) Dave (Stewart) made the trade, that was his thinking — that this is a guy that has the arm to be (at the top of the rotation)."
Yanks land Didi Gregorius in three-team swap with Tigers, D-Backs
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/5/14) The Yankees, Diamondbacks and Tigers have finalized a three-way deal that will send shortstop to Didi Gregorius New York, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.
Gregorius, 24, is now poised to succeed recently retired Derek Jeter at shortstop for the Yankees. The 24-year-old hit .226 with five triples, six home runs, nine doubles and 27 RBI in 80 games.
The Tigers will receive pitcher Shane Greene from the Yankees, while the Diamondbacks will land pitcher Robbie Ray and infield prospect Domingo Leyba from the Tigers. Greene, 26, registered a 3.24 ERA, a 1.39 WHIP and 81:29 K:BB ratio over 78 2/3 innings of work during his 2014 rookie campaign. Ray, 23, made nine appearances (six starts) in his first season in the majors. He finished 1-4 with a 8.16 ERA, a 1.88 WHIP and 19:11 K:BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings.
|2014 summary: Robbie Ray came over to the Tigers from the Nationals last offseason in the Doug Fister trade, and he was called up for his major league debut barely more than a month into the season. He served as an injury replacement in the rotation during two stretches -- one in May and one in August. His first two starts went well, as Ray allowed one run over 11 1/3 innings, but his next four starts produced a 12.89 ERA. Ray spent most of the season with Triple-A Toledo, where he posted a 4.22 ERA in 19 starts and one relief appearance. After just one season, the Tigers sent Ray packing, trading him to the Diamondbacks as part of a three-way deal involving the Yankees.
Playing time status: Ray could be a contender for the fifth spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation.
2015 outlook: Though Ray entered last season as one of the Tigers' top pitching prospects, he took a step backwards in his only year in the organization. Ray didn't make much progress on the control issues that have hampered him throughout his minor league career, and he was too hittable both in Triple-A and in the majors. Ray is worth drafting or keeping in dynasty formats due to his potential, but he can be passed over in all single-season leagues until he shows signs of progress.
