  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Allows five runs, earns win

    Ray (4-3) allowed five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out nine in six innings to earn the win over the Mets on Sunday.

    Ray exhibited decent command in Sunday's start, tossing 63 of his 97 pitches for strikes. However, he allowed plenty of baserunners and gave up five runs over the first four innings of the game. Although the southpaw allowed at least five runs in a start for just the second time this season, he got plenty of run support from the Mariners and picked up his second consecutive win. Ray has posted a 4.62 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 48.2 innings over eight starts in 2022, and he tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Boston on Friday.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Whiffs 10 in victory

    Ray (3-3) registered the win during Tuesday's 5-4 victory over Philadelphia, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks with 10 strikeouts in 5.2 innings.

    Ray retired the first 12 Phillies before encountering trouble in the fifth inning, surrendering two runs on a Nick Castellanos solo shot and a Jean Segura walk plus two wild pitches. The 30-year-old has now surpassed the 100-pitch threshold in consecutive starts and induced an impressive 21 swinging strikes Tuesday. Despite the positive notes, Ray has surrendered multiple earned runs in every start since Opening Day and sits with a 4.22 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He's tentatively lined up to face the Mets in New York on Sunday for a second start this week.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Takes loss against Rays

    Ray (2-3) suffered the loss against the Rays on Thursday, allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk over 6.2 innings. He struck out five.

    Ray had one bad inning in the start -- Tampa Bay netted four runs against him in the fourth -- but that was enough to seal his fate on a night when Seattle produced only three runs. The southpaw nonetheless can take some positives away from the performance, as he racked up 15 swinging strikes and tossed his most innings since his first start of the campaign. Ray has gone at least six frames in all but one of his appearances this season and has a 4.38 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31:13 K:BB across 30.1 innings. He's lined up to face Philadelphia at home early next week.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Struggles with control Saturday

    Ray (2-2) was charged with the loss against the Marlins on Saturday, allowing three earned runs on four hits and four walks across five innings while recording eight strikeouts.

    Ray had his swing-and-miss stuff in season-best form Saturday, but he also tied a season high with four walks. The veteran southpaw had mostly breezed through his first four frames before the Marlins got to him in the fifth with a pair of RBI singles and by drawing a free pass with the bases loaded. Ray's first opportunity to make up for the stumble is slated to come at home against the Rays either Thursday or Friday.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Solid in no-decision

    Ray struck out five in six innings, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk in a 5-4 extra-inning win Sunday against Kansas City. He did not factor into the decision.

    Ray allowed a pair of RBI doubles in the third inning but otherwise kept the Royals' lineup in check. He left the game with a 3-2 lead and was in position to earn the victory. A ninth-inning homer by Hunter Dozier erased that possibility. The lefty has thrown at least six innings in each start this season and leads all of baseball with 25.1 innings pitched. Surprisingly, Ray has been pitching more to contact and has only fanned 18 batters so far. His next start will likely be next weekend in Miami.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Wins quality start

    Ray (2-1) picked up the win during Tuesday's 6-2 victory over Texas, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts in six innings.

    Seattle jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after the first inning and Ray cruised from there, permitting single runs in the third and seventh innings and requiring just 85 pitches. It was a nice rebound from his last start, a six-run outing against the White Sox. The 30-year-old has now gone at least six innings in each of his three turns. He's tentatively slated to pitch again Sunday against Kansas City.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Struggles in loss

    Ray allowed six runs on 10 hits and four walks while striking out four across 6.1 innings during Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the White Sox. He earned his first loss of the season.

    Ray allowed four runs in the second inning, capped off by a two-run double by Tim Anderson. The left-hander was able to steady the ship until he allowed back-to-back homers to Anderson and Luis Robert in the seventh inning. All things considered, it wasn't a terrible outing for the veteran against a lineup that has notoriously dominated left-handed pitching. After signing a five-year, $115 million deal this past offseason, the 2021 AL Cy Young winner has struck out nine across 13.1 innings of work during his first two starts as a Mariner. Ray is tentatively scheduled to face the Rangers at home next Tuesday.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Tosses seven innings in win

    Ray (1-0) allowed one run on three hits and four walks over seven innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win over the Twins.

    Making his first start after landing a $115 million deal last offseason, Ray fired 96 pitches across seven innings of one-run ball. The lone blemish on his outing was a solo shot by Gio Urshela in the fourth frame. The 6-foot-2 southpaw has dealt with command issues throughout his career, registering a career 3.9 BB/9 entering the 2022 campaign, so the four walks shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Ray is expected to face the White Sox on the road next week.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Mariners-Twins opener postponed

    Ray and the Mariners won't face the Twins on Thursday after the Opening Day game for both teams was postponed due to inclement weather in Minnesota.

    The contest was rescheduled for Friday, which was originally an off day in the schedule amid the four-game series. Ray remains in line to start Friday's game, which will keep the other four members of the rotation on their normal pitching schedules. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner closed his first spring with the Mariners with a 4.61 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 13.2 innings over his three starts.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Awarded Opening Day nod

    Manager Scott Servais said Thursday that Ray will start the Mariners' Opening Day game April 7 in Minnesota, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Ray will unseat Marco Gonzales as the Mariners' No. 1 starter this season after Seattle brought him aboard on a five-year, $115 million deal following his improbable run to the American League's Cy Young Award in 2021 while he was with Toronto. Ray has always made bats miss at a prolific clip, but he reached a new level of success thanks largely to cutting his walk rate down to 6.7 percent last season after turning in rates north of 10 percent in each of the previous four years. So long as he proves that he can keep the free passes to a minimum, Ray shouldn't take too much of a step back statistically with the move from Toronto to Seattle.
