Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray allows one run, wins Game 2 of DH


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray picked up a win Wednesday, surrendering just one earned run on five hits in six innings while striking out five and walking none in his team's 5-1 victory over the Rockies in Game 2 of a doubleheader.

Ray (1-0) delivered a fine performance in his season debut after the two teams combined for 20 runs in Game 1 of the doubleheader. His only blemish came on an RBI double in the bottom of the fourth inning to tie the game, but his offense immediately provided three more runs in the top of the fifth.

Ray will likely make at least one more start Monday against the Nationals while filling in for Archie Bradley, who's on the disabled list.


Rockies-Diamondbacks postponed Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Tuesday's game between the Rockies and Diamondbacks has been postponed due to inclement weather, the teams announced.

It's the second game in a row that has been postponed between the two teams. The Rockies and Diamondbacks will play a traditional doubleheader Wednesday.

Josh Collmenter and Tyler Matzek were the scheduled starters for Tuesday's game. Collmenter will start Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader, while Robbie Ray, who will serve as the team's 26th man on the roster Wednesday, will take the mound for Game 2.


Diamondbacks will start pitcher Robbie Ray vs. Rockies on Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) 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
(4/4/2015) 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
(3/27/2015) 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
(3/23/2015) 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
(3/22/2015) 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
(3/16/2015) 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

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Tigers pitcher Robbie Ray was pounded against the Twins Friday.

Ray allowed six earned runs on six hits over 1 1/3 innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks throughout the start. Ray was able to get through a scoreless first inning, but fell apart in the second. Ray allowed three straight doubles to open the frame, bringing in two runs. A mound visit seemed to calm him briefly, as he managed to strike out Kurt Suzuki. That calmness was short-lived.

With the loss, Ray dropped to 1-4. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
