Top Ian Krol News

  • Ian Krol: Bound for free agency

    Krol elected free agency Friday after refusing an outright assignment to the minors.

    Krol tossed 18.2 innings for the Tigers this season, his first major-league action since 2018. His 4.34 ERA was nothing special, but being left-handed could make him at least somewhat interesting on the open market.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Back in majors

    Krol's contract was selected from Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.

    He was designated for assignment two weeks ago but was summoned to take on a low-leverage relief role with Tyler Alexander moving to the rotation.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Clears waivers

    The Tigers outrighted Krol to Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

    He'll remain in the organization after clearing waivers when the Tigers designated him for assignment over the weekend. The 30-year-old lefty reliever has covered 12.1 innings out of the Detroit bullpen this season, giving up seven earned runs on 18 hits and five walks.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Designated for assignment

    Krol was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Friday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Krol had seven consecutive scoreless appearances following the All-Star break, but he struggled in his last three appearances and gave up six runs (five earned) in three innings. He'll be cast off the 40-man roster since Jose Urena is expected to be called up to start Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Pitching well lately

    Krol tossed a scoreless inning in Sunday's loss to Cleveland and has now gone eight straight appearances without allowing a run.

    The eight appearances translate to 8.2 innings, and despite allowing nine hits and three walks during that span versus just six strikeouts, Krol has been able to keep the opposition off the board. The 30-year-old may have a hard time continuing the scoreless streak if he keeps putting runners on at a decent clip without a ton of strikeouts, but he's at least gotten off to a good start with the Tigers this year after not pitching in the majors since 2018. Krol should maintain a middle relief role with a chance at more high-leverage work at some point if he keeps stringing together clean outings.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Contract selected by Detroit

    Krol had his contract selected by the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Daniel Norris was traded to Milwaukee on Friday, and Krol will take his place on Detroit's 40-man and 26-man rosters. Krol has made five big-league appearances this year and allowed two runs on four hits with four strikeouts and two walks over 4.2 frames.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Clears waivers

    The Tigers outrighted Krol to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday after he cleared waivers.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: DFA'd by Tigers

    The Tigers designated Krol for assignment Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Krol was out of options, so a DFA was the only way to remove him from the active roster and clear a spot for Michael Fulmer (neck). After being called up July 7, the lefty allowed two runs in 4.2 innings while striking out four and walking two. Given his decent results, Krol could find himself back in the big-league bullpen this season if injuries or trades create another opening.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Recalled to big leagues

    Krol's contract was selected from Triple-A Toledo prior to Wednesday's game against Texas.

    Krol signed a minor-league deal with Detroit in December. He was sent to the club's alternate site following the conclusion of spring training and was later assigned to Toledo. The southpaw posted a 2.42 ERA and 26:10 K:BB across 22.1 Triple-A innings and he will now return to the majors for the first time since making one appearance with the Angels in 2018. Spencer Turnbull (forearm) was moved to the 60-day IL to make room for Krol on the 40-man roster.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Headed to alternate site

    The Tigers reassigned Krol on Tuesday to their alternate training site in Toledo.

    The team had already informed Krol that he wouldn't make the Opening Day roster, but this move makes it official. The righty was attempting a comeback after last pitching at the MLB level in 2018 and getting a 50-game suspension in August 2019 following a second positive test for a drug of abuse. Krol should eventually end up at Triple-A Toledo and will give the Tigers some organizational depth this season.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Misses out on Opening Day roster

    The Tigers informed Krol on Wednesday that he won't be included on the club's Opening Day roster, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Krol will still remain with the Tigers for the remainder of the Grapefruit League season before heading to minor-league camp. The non-roster invitee made a spirited bid for a bullpen role this spring, striking out nine in six scoreless innings.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Will get early look

    Krol (suspension) is expected to pitch in one of the Tigers' first few Grapefruit League games, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    The Tigers kick off their spring training schedule with games Sunday and Monday, and it's expected that Krol will get a look right away as he attempts to return to the majors. The lefty last pitched at the MLB level in 2018 with the Angels and he's set to serve a 50-game suspension for a second positive test for a drug abuse in 2019. He also pitched for Detroit in 2014 and 2015, compiling a 5.34 ERA in 78 games out of the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Ian Krol: Invited to camp by Detroit

    Krol (suspension) signed with the Tigers as a non-roster invitee Monday.

    Krol has thrown a total of 190 innings at the big-league level, posting a 4.50 ERA. The last of those innings came back in 2018 for the Angels. He was hit with a 50-game suspension for a second positive test for a drug of abuse in 2019 and spent 2020 pitching in the independent City of Champions Cup, striking out 31 batters while walking just three and giving up a single run in 19.1 innings of relief.

  • Twins' Ian Krol: Handed 50-game ban

    Krol received a 50-game suspension for a second positive test for a drug of abuse, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Krol signed a minor-league deal with the Twins in mid-June after being let go by the Reds but will now see his season come to an early end. The 28-year-old will finish the Triple-A season with a 5.28 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 58:22 K:BB over 46 innings.

  • Twins' Ian Krol: Inks minors pact with Twins

    Krol signed a minor-league contract with the Twins and has been assigned to Triple-A Rochester.

    The 28-year-old lefty logged a 5.33 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 25.1 innings of relief at Triple-A in the Reds organization earlier this season. He should serve as organizational bullpen depth for Minnesota.

  • Reds' Ian Krol: Heads to minors

    Krol was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.

    Krol had a very strong spring, allowing just a single run in 9.1 innings of work. The 27-year-old has a mediocre 4.50 ERA in 190 innings at the big-league level.

  • Reds' Ian Krol: Reaches minors deal with Cincinnati

    Krol agreed Wednesday with the Reds on a minor-league contract.

    Krol made one relief appearance for the Angels in 2018 but otherwise pitched exclusively at the Triple-A level between Salt Lake and Las Vegas, logging a 2.72 ERA and 59 strikeouts over 56.1 innings. His deal includes an invite to the Reds' big-league camp, but he'll most likely be headed for Triple-A Louisville once Cactus League action draws to a close.

  • Mets' Ian Krol: Latches on with Mets

    Krol is set to join Triple-A Las Vegas, Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Krol was designated for assignment by the Angels on May 28, but he chose free agency instead of heading to Triple-A Salt Lake. Since then, he's inked a minor-league deal with the Mets, and he'll report to their Triple-A affiliate, the 51s. Krol appeared in 18 minor-league games this season, accruing a 2.12 ERA and 1.00 WHIP along with 20 strikeouts across 17 innings.

  • Ian Krol: Opts out of contract

    Krol has elected free agency following his assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Krol was designated for assignment this week despite holding a 1.71 ERA over 21 innings of relief with Salt Lake this season. He's decided to test the free agent market and will look to latch on with another club.
