Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Sloppy win over Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray (1-2) allowed six runs on six hits and two walks and struck out six over five innings in a win over the Astros on Wednesday.

Ray gave up his fair share of runs in the slugfest -- five of the six runs he allowed came on homers. He fared better than Astros starter Lance McCullers, and Ray had enough run support to get his first win of the year. The 28-year-old has a 9.45 ERA and 1.95 WHIP through 13.1 innings this season. The struggling southpaw will look to get on track Monday in Colorado.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Walks six in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray (0-2) was charged with the loss against the Dodgers on Thursday, surrendering five runs on five hits and six walks with four strikeouts across 4.2 innings.

Ray struggled with his command from the start, issuing a leadoff walk to Mookie Betts, who soon scored on a sacrifice fly by Justin Turner. The 28-year-old then gave up a two-run homer to A.J. Pollock. The second inning brought more trouble in the form of a leadoff home run by Corey Seager, who eventually became Ray's final batter in the fifth after knocking in an RBI groundout. The six walks were a career high for Ray. He'll look to straighten things out Wednesday against Houston.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Labors against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray (0-1) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out seven over 3.2 innings in a loss to the Padres on Saturday.

There was some buzz surrounding Ray given his slimmed-down physique and revamped delivery. Unfortunately, the new delivery and shorter arm action that he showcased in summer camp did not lead to good results in his regular-season debut. In fact, it was more of what we've come to expect from Ray: walks and inefficiency. He needed 97 pitches to record 11 outs. The lefty lines up to face the Dodgers at home next week.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Dominant again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray allowed one run on one hit and didn't walk a batter while striking out nine over six innings in Wednesday night's intrasquad game, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Other than allowing a solo home run by Trayce Thompson, Ray was dominant once again. He's been dialed in during summer camp, allowing just one run with three walks and 17 strikeouts over 11 innings. After the game, the left-hander discussed the changes he's made, including a slimmed down physique, a revamped delivery and shorter arm action. "It's definitely something that I worked on to try to be more - to have something that's more repeatable," Ray said of his shorter arm stroke. "That was something that allowed me to get in the same spot in my delivery time after time and be consistent." Ray is expected to serve as the Diamondbacks' No. 2 starter in 2020, with his season debut expected July 25 against San Diego.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Continues impressive camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray tossed five no-hit innings in Friday's intrasquad game, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ray got up to 76 pitches with his fastball regularly hitting the mid-90s. "The stuff was overpowering at times and the secondary stuff was together," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. "I couldn't be more happy with what he did." The manager's comments echo what catcher Steven Vogt said earlier in the week when asked by Steve Gilbert of about the most impressive pitchers in camp. Vogt didn't hesitate in raving about Ray.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Makes camp debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray threw approximately 80 pitches to live hitters Sunday, Steve Gilbert of reports.

The session was a combination of live batting practice and simulated game for Ray, the left-hander who is entering the final year of his contract. He told manager Torey Lovullo last week that he feels ready to pitch in a game immediately, and the 29-year-old hurler proved it during Sunday's session. "He said that he was ready to start a baseball season, and he backed that up," Lovullo said. "His stuff was extremely aggressive. He was throwing balls to both sides of the plate, great depth on certain breaking balls. It wasn't perfect, nor do we expect it to be, but for [his first outing], it was outstanding." Ray said he threw with "max effort" and that his arm and body felt good.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Works four innings Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray allowed one run on three hits while striking out three over four innings in Thursday's spring game against the Rangers.

Ray had a third straight strong start, including a "B" game against a college team, and has allowed just one run in eight spring innings. He talked about his new mechanics at the start of camp, referencing an arm adjustment designed to keep him in the zone more consistently, and the lefty has walked just two batters in three outings.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Throws B game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray allowed three hits and struck out six over 2.1 scoreless innings in a "B" game against a Japanese college team Saturday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Instead of having him throw against the division rival Dodgers, the Diamondbacks moved Ray to the back fields to continue his spring progression. The left-hander is up to 44 pitches after two spring starts and has spun four scoreless innings after adjusting his mechanics during the offseason. He's currently pegged as Arizona's No. 2 starter behind ace Madison Bumgarner, although the Diamondbacks may want to change up the roster order to avoiding having two consecutive lefties in the rotation.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Tries out new mechanics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray started Sunday and walked two while striking out three over 1.2 scoreless innings in a spring win over the Athletics.

Ray, who showed off a slimmer physique upon his arrival to camp, also showed off new mechanics, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The left-hander is trying to finish his delivery more toward the plate rather than falling off to the third-base side. "I'm not losing stuff arm side because my direction is more towards the plate. I'm not pulling so much with my front side, which is allowing me to stay in the zone and not pull and leave stuff arm side," said Ray, who had a 4.3 BB/9 in 2019 and 5.1 the previous season. The 28-year-old Ray is slotted in at second in the rotation behind Madison Bumgarner.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Gets just shy of $10 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray agreed to a one-year, $9.43 million deal with the Diamondbacks on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

This is his final year as an arbitration-eligible player before hitting the open market. The 28-year-old lefty has been worth 12.2 fWAR over 790.2 innings across six MLB seasons.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Double-digit strikeouts again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray struck out 10 over six innings while allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks in a no-decision versus the Padres on Saturday.

Ray allowed a two-run homer to Manny Machado and a solo shot to Luis Urias in the contest. The southpaw matched his career high for innings pitched with 174.1, during which he's accumulated a personal-best 235 strikeouts with a 4.34 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. Ray will also finish the year with a 12-8 record.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Strikes out 10 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray allowed four runs on three hits and four walks over 5.1 innings Sunday, striking out 10 batters in the loss to San Diego. He did not factor into the decision.

Ray kept the Padres' bats quiet for the first three innings before coughing up a two-run shot to Ty France in the fourth inning. He was then charged with two more runs in the sixth after he was lifted from the contest. The 27-year-old lefty set a new career high with 225 strikeouts over 168.1 frames. Ray will carry a 4.28 ERA into Saturday's rematch against San Diego at home.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Sharp in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray threw six innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Monday, yielding just one hit and one earned run, striking out seven and walking four as the Diamondbacks eventually won 7-5.

He didn't have his best control, but it was an otherwise stellar outing for the left-hander and a nice bounce back after he was lit up for five earned while recording just two outs in his last trip to the mound against the Mets. He seems to be over the blister issue that was giving him trouble in his last two starts, and while his 4.20 ERA and 1.33 WHIP for the season aren't spectacular, Ray has acted as a solid source of strikeouts again in 2019, with 215 punchouts to his name across 163 innings.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: No more blister concern
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray (finger) threw a successful 37-pitch bullpen session Saturday and has been cleared to make his next scheduled start Monday against the Marlins, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ray has been dealing with a blister on his left middle finger, which has impacted his last two starts, but manager Torey Lovullo feels it's no longer a problem. "I feel like it's going to be a non-issue," Lovullo said of Ray's blister. "Obviously I was saying that last time and you saw what happened, so I'm going to be cautious with what I'm telling you guys. But I feel like after [Saturday's] bullpen and the information I got that it's going to be a non-issue." The left-hander threw his full arsenal of pitches during the side session and isn't expected to face any significant limitations when he toes the rubber Monday.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Blister resurfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray experienced the return of a blister on his left middle finger while warming up in the bullpen prior to Wednesday's start, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ray endured the shortest outing of his career Wednesday, giving up five runs in two-thirds of an inning. Last week in Cincinnati, the left-hander developed the blister, which he and the team thought had healed enough for him to pitch. However, the skin on the finger ripped off during the pregame bullpen session. Both Ray and manager Torey Lovullo think the pitcher will make his next start Monday at home against the Marlins.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Buried by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray (12-8) allowed five earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out one across two-thirds of an inning to take the loss Wednesday against the Mets.

Ray surrendered four extra-base hits -- including two home runs -- to the eight batters he faced before pulled from the disastrous outing. He had been battling a blister that developed during his last start, which could serve to explain some of his struggles. Even prior to that issue, however, Ray had struggled to work deep into games, lasting six innings only once in his last seven appearances. Assuming good health, Ray will look to get back on track on his next outing, currently expected to come Monday against the Marlins.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Fires successful bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray (finger) threw a successful bullpen session Monday, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Ray threw 28 pitches and incorporated his entire arsenal, noting afterwards that everything went well while adding that the blister on his left middle finger is more like a callus now. Assuming he checks out OK in the coming days, look for the southpaw to take the mound on normal rest Wednesday against the Mets.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Bullpen scheduled Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray played catch Sunday and reported no issues with the blister on his left middle finger, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ray joined teammates on the flight to New York ahead of the team's series against the Mets and plans to throw his usual between-starts bullpen session Monday. Unless the Diamondbacks indicate that Ray experienced a setback during the side session, expect him to take the hill on normal rest Wednesday and face no restrictions with his pitch count.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Not expected to miss start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray (finger) is not expected to miss his next start, Steve Gilbert of reports.

Ray felt a hot spot develop on his finger, though the Diamondbacks were able to remove him from the game before a blister could form. He's expected to pitch again Wednesday against the Mets.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Battling blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray left Friday's game against the Reds with a blister on his left middle finger.

Ray struck out eight while allowing two runs in 4.1 innings prior to leaving with team trainers. It's not yet clear whether he's expected to miss his next start, which would line up to be Wednesday against the Mets.
