Diamondbacks will start pitcher Robbie Ray vs. Rockies on Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) The Diamondbacks have chosen pitcher Robbie Ray to start Tuesday's game at Colorado, the team announced.
"He has pitches to strike guys out, he's got a lot of strikeouts down there and we just want to see what he's got, give him a shot," D-backs manager Chip Hale said, via MLB.com. "We're playing a team in the Rockies who can really hit. We saw that at our place. But they swing at a lot of pitches, so his power stuff we think matches up good with them. We had the option of a few guys and a couple of them are lefties. Robbie just makes sense right now at this point."
Ray has been pitching for the team's Double-A affiliate. During spring training, Ray produced a 6.35 ERA in six appearances. Ray will receive two starts in place of Archie Bradley, who is on the disabled list with a sinus fracture, reports FoxSportsArizona.com.
Diamondbacks option pitchers Nuno, Ray, Burgos to minors
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) The Diamondbacks have optioned pitchers Vidal Nuno and Robbie Ray to Triple-A Reno as well as Enrique Burgos to Double-A Mobile, the team announced Saturday.
Arizona also reassigned Blake Lalli to their minor league camp. Nuno and Ray were competing for roles in the bullpen. Nuno was also scratched from his scheduled start Saturday. He posted a 8.10 ERA with eight strikeouts in four appearances this spring.
Ray posted a 6.35 ERA with 16 strikeouts and nine walks in six appearances.
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.
|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.
