Robbie Ray sent back to Toledo


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ray has surrendered 20 earned runs in his last 14 1/3 innings pitched covering four outings.


Robbie Ray pounded Friday


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. Ray surrendered a home run to Eduardo Escobar, a single to Jordan Schafer and another home run to Danny Santana. Ray was pulled from the game at that point.

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

Ray, who is filling in for Rick Porcello after he was scratched following an emergency relief session Sunday, will likely be needed to fill in at least once more. Ray could be needed to start Sunday with Justin Verlander expected to miss at least one start with shoulder inflammation. 


Robbie Ray ready to roll for Tuesday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The first start since May 22 for Tigers left-hander Robbie Ray has been moved up from Wednesday to Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Robbie Ray has tough return at Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Tigers pitcher Robbie Ray had a rough go of it in his first start back at Triple-A.

Ray lasted just 3 1/3 innings, giving up three runs, two of which were earned. Control was a big problem, as Ray walked four hitters. He gave up four hits and notched four strikeouts. Despite the struggles, Ray's ERA remained a solid 1.93 in the minors. 


Robbie Ray mashed and demoted Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) May 22, 2014, will not be go down as a red-letter day for Tigers left-hander Robbie Ray.

Ray not only got clobbered at home by Texas, but he was also dispatched to Triple-A Toledo following the game.

The move was not unexpected. But his pounding was after he had given up just one run in 12 innings pitched so far this season. After a scoreless first, Ray yielded seven earned runs in the next 2 1/3 innings. Included was a two-run homer by Shin-Soo Choo in the fourth that marked the end of his stint with the Tigers. He finished having surrendered nine hits and four walks with just one strikeout.


Robbie Ray will stay in rotation for one more start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Robbie Ray solid again in second start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Tigers pitcher Robbie Ray turned in another strong performance Sunday against the Twins.

Ray spun six scoreless innings against Minnesota. He gave up just four hits and one walk during the appearance. Ray struck out two hitters. He was pulled after throwing just 93 pitches. 

Ray left the game with a three-run lead, but the Tigers bullpen couldn't pull through with a win. Al Alburquerque and Joba Chamberlain gave up four runs in the late innings, giving Ray the no decision. 

Through 11 1/3 innings, Ray has a 0.79 ERA. His next start will come against the Red Sox. 


Robbie Ray named Sunday starter vs. Twins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) The Tigers have tabbed pitcher Robbie Ray to start Sunday's game against the Twins, MLive.com reports.

Ray surrendered one run in 5 1/3 innings while striking out five Tuesday. The team needs one more spot start before potentially regaining Anibal Sanchez in the rotation.


Robbie Ray looks solid in big-league debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Tigers starter Robbie Ray pitched well in his major-league debut Tuesday, though he fell short of a quality start in an 11-4 win over the Astros.

Ray pitched into the sixth inning and was cruising, but was pulled after allowing his first run to score. He exited the game having allowed one run on five hits in 5 1/3 innings, with five strikeouts and one walk on 86 pitches.

Ray, who is in the rotation in Anibal Sanchez's place, may only have one or two more starts left before Sanchez returns from the disabled list. Ray is set to make his next start Sunday against the Twins. 


Robbie Ray may not be worth the fuss


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/2/2014) So Robbie Ray is expected to get the call to the big leagues Tuesday as the replacement for Anibal Sanchez. But while he certainly qualifies as a prospect -- the key acquisition in the Doug Fister trade everyone ragged on the Tigers about -- he doesn't warrant the same enthusiasm Trevor Bauer or even Marcus Stroman does.

For starters, he's getting called up sooner than ideal. He's made only 16 starts above Class A, and though his 1.59 ERA at Triple-A Toledo this year is impressive, it conceals just how hittable he's been. In those 16 starts above Class A, he's allowed 8.7 hits per nine innings, which isn't disastrous but is more than you'd expect for a pitcher on the verge of breaking into the big leagues. And if his control issues resurface along with it, a more likely scenario at the major-league level, he could be in for a quick return.

Most likely, he will be anyway. Sanchez only has a blister, after all. At most, he'll miss two starts. Maybe Ray performs well enough to make the Tigers rethink their plans for Drew Smyly, but that scenariosis too unlikely for me to pass up on pitchers like Bauer, Stroman, Tanner Roark, Josh Beckett and even Matt Harrison.

If you can't get any of those in your league, well, maybe that's when you consider Ray.


Robbie Ray ready to roll into major league debut Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) The Tigers have announced that pitching prospect Robbie Ray will make his major league debut Tuesday night against visiting Houston, per MLB.com.

The 22 year old left-hander has been lights-out with Triple-A Toledo this season. He is 3-2 with a 1.59 ERA. He has given up 27 hits and just five walks in 28 1/3 innings. Ray has fanned 21 and yielded only one home run.


Tigers option four, re-assign four Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Tigers optioned pitchers Casey Crosby and Melvin Mercedes to Triple-A Toledo and pitcher Jose Valdez and catcher Ramon Cabrera to Double-A Erie Wednesday.

The team also re-assigned catcher James McCann and pitchers Robbie Ray, Duane Below and Drew VerHagen to minor-league camp Wednesday.


Robbie Ray strikes out five in two innings


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Tigers pitcher Robbie Ray struck out five hitters in two innings of his spring debut Tuesday.

The Tigers were facing Florida Southern College, so it might be less impressive than it looks on paper. Still, Ray was the key to the Doug Fister deal. Though the return for Fister wasn't considered strong enough, general manager Dave Dombrowski pointed to Ray as someone the team was high on. It's unclear whether Ray will be used as a starter or a reliever during camp. He has an uphill battle to break with the 25-man roster, but could make his way to the majors at some point this season. 


Nationals give up three for Doug Fister


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) The Tigers acquired a trio of young players from the Nationals Monday, in exchange for veteran starting pitcher Doug Fister. The Nationals sent infielder Stephen Lombardozzi, reliever Ian Krol and pitching prospect Robbie Ray to Detroit, according to the Washington Post.

Lombardozzi is the only player with more than one season of major-league experience in the deal for the Tigers. He carries a .264/.297/.342 line in 257 games, and hit .259 with just two home runs and 22 RBI in 290 at-bats last season.

Krol appeared in 32 games as a rookie, posting a 3.95 ERA in 27 1/3 innings. He struck out 22 batters and walked just eight in that span.

Ray went 11-5 with a 3.36 ERA between Class A Potomac and Double-A Harrisburg. He was ranked as the National's No. 5 prospect according to Baseball America. 


Robbie Ray impressive in Single-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2013) Nationals prospect Robbie Ray has gotten off to a strong start at Class-A Potomac.

In six starts, Ray has a 1.85 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 34 innings. The Nationals selected Ray in the 12 round of the 2010 draft. The 21-year-old was ranked the team's 18 best prospect by Baseball America this offseason.
