Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray gets roughed up in loss to Cards


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray had a rough night on the mound against the Cardinals on Tuesday. The left-hander allowed six runs on five hits over three-plus innings. He struck out three while walking five in the 9-1 loss.

Ray (3-10, 3.86 ERA) was hit early and often in this one, as he allowed four runs to score in the very first inning. Ray started the fourth inning, but the first two men reached safely, promting manager Chip Hale to make a change. The bullpen would allow both of those runs to score, closing the book on the lefty starter.

This was the first rough outing for the rookie southpaw in quite a while. Ray had allowed a total of nine runs over his previous three starts, and Tuesday was the first time he had given up more than four runs in any start this year.

Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray goes seven strong against Seattle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray rebounded nicely Monday from his worst start of the season. But his bullpen cost him a victory.

Ray, who couldn't make it out of the fifth inning last Tuesday, pitched through seven in Seattle. He gave up just two runs on six hits with two walks and eight strikeouts, which tied a season-high.

He pitched shutout ball through five, but a Logan Morrison RBI single in the sixth and Robinson Cano homer in the seventh narrowed his lead to 3-2.

Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray finally clobbered Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2015) Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray was due for a dud. And he got one against the wrong mound opponent Wednesday.

Matched up against sensational Marlins left-hander Jose Fernandez, he gave up four earned runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings. Ray walked three and fanned four.

His failures began in the second inning when a double and walk were followed by a J.R. Realmuto double, sacrifice fly and Fernandez double that made it 3-0. An Ichiro Suzuki triple and Martin Prado single tallied two more and all but ended his night.

Ray now owns a season-high 2.72 ERA.


Diamonbacks' Robbie Ray solid in no-decision vs. Giants on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray had a decent outing against the Giants on Friday, allowing two runs on right hits over five innings. But he was left with a no-decision when the bullpen coughed up a 5-2 lead late in the game. 

Ray, who struck out eight without issuing a walk on Friday, gave up individual runs in the second and fifth innings, but the high strikeout total resulted in 99 pitches through his five frames. 

Ray has been solid all year, as Friday's performance actually increased his ERA to 2.29. He has not allowed more than three earned runs in any of his nine starts this season.

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.

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' 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.

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)."
