Twins' Ian Krol: Inks minors pact with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Angels' Ian Krol: Reports to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol cleared waivers and will report to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

Krol, who was designated for assignment earlier in the week, will serve as organizational pitching depth with the Bees after passing through waivers untouched. The left-hander owns a solid 1.71 ERA across 21 innings of relief with Salt Lake this season.

Angels' Ian Krol: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol was designated for assignment by the Angels on Monday.

Krol pitched a pair of scoreless innings during his 2018 big-league debut Sunday, but the Angels opted to drop him from their 40-man roster to clear room for a fresh bullpen arm in Akeel Morris. The 27-year-old owns a 1.71 ERA across 21 innings with Triple-A Salt Lake this season and could draw some interest on waivers given his past major-league experience.

Angels' Ian Krol: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol was promoted to the majors Saturday, Maria Guardado of reports.

In parts of five big-league seasons with the Nationals, Tigers and Braves, the lefty has a 4.55 ERA. He'll fill a low-leverage role in the Angels' bullpen. Eduardo Paredes was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move.

Angels' Ian Krol: Invited to Angels camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol signed a minor-league contract with the Angels which includes an invitation to spring training, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Krol spent the 2017 season with the Braves, struggling to a 5.33 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 44:21 K:BB across 49 innings of relief before being cut loose in October. Still, the 26-year-old southpaw has proven he can be an effective reliever -- evidenced by his 3.18 ERA across 51 innings in 2016 -- so he'll get a chance to break camp with the Angels in a low-to-mid-leverage relief role.

Ian Krol: Elects to become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol chose to become a free agent after being outrighted from the Braves 40-man roster Wednesday, Jerry Crasnick of reports.

Krol threw 49 innings over 51 games for the Braves this season. In that time he posted a lofty 5.33 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. Coming off a 2016 campaign in which he built a 3.18 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across 51 frames (63 games) his latest showing was certainly a disappointment. At 26 years old, it's not out of the question for Krol to get back on track. However, he'd likely be used in low leverage situations if a club opts to sign him.

Braves' Ian Krol: Reinstated from disabled list Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol (oblique) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday, Mark Bowman of reports.

Although Krol has been at full health for the past few days, the club chose to wait until September to reinstate the southpaw since there wouldn't be any need for a corresponding roster move. He's been out for almost a month with a strained left oblique, but was able to get four rehab appearances in over the past couple weeks, and should be available out of Atlanta's bullpen moving forward.

Braves' Ian Krol: Activation from DL in sight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Sept. 1, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The Braves will wait to activate Krol from the DL until rosters expand at the beginning of September so that they can avoid making a corresponding roster move. Upon his eventual activation, Krol figures to carry little fantasy value as he won't see many high-leverage situations and currently owns a 5.75 ERA and 1.52 WHIP

Braves' Ian Krol: Placed on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol landed on the 10-day DL with a strained left oblique prior to Friday's game.

Krol has been in the midst of a rough season, accumulating a 5.75 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over the course of 40.2 relief innings. His latest appearance came against the Dodgers on Thursday, where he allowed one earned run off one hit and a pair of walks during two innings. There has yet to be word on any sort of timetable for Krol's return, but he could miss an extended period of time depending on the severity of the strain.

Braves' Ian Krol: Unable to build on productive 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol is on pace to have the worst ERA of his career, as he currently sports a 6.03 mark.

His previous career worst came in 2015 with Detroit when he posted an ERA of 5.79 in 28 big-league innings. He has already pitched 37.1 innings this season and looks to be resembling the pitcher we saw back then and not the reliever who posted an ERA of 3.18 in 51 innings last season.

Braves' Ian Krol: Pitching well since April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol has a 3.31 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 19 innings since the start of May.

The Braves left-hander has rebounded nicely from a rough start to the season and hasn't issued a walk in his last 10 appearances. Krol has a 5.33 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 24 strikeouts across 27 innings for the season, working mostly in low-pressure situations.

Braves' Ian Krol: Rebounding from poor start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol has given up five runs across 11 innings during the month of May.

It hasn't been a spectacular month for the 26-year-old, but it's still a marked improvement upon his disastrous April in which he carried a 10.13 ERA. Krol has lowered his season ERA to 6.63 and WHIP to 1.53, but he hasn't improved much on a high BB/9 (6.6) and low K/9 (7.1). The Braves seem committed to giving Krol a chance to bounce back, so he could see more opportunities (albeit not high-leverage ones) if he continues to improve.

Braves' Ian Krol: Slow start to 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol has allowed nine runs over seven innings of work for an ERA of 11.57 to start the season.

Moreover, Krol has walked six and only struck out six. The 25-year-old's WHIP is a monstrous 2.14 and his FIP sits at a bloated 7.47. That is quite the regression from last year, when Krol posted a 2.91 FIP and allowed just 18 earned runs over 51 innings with a 4.3 K/BB ratio.

March 28, 2017 12:12 PM
Braves' Ian Krol: Strikes out two Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol walked one and struck out two in 1.1 shutout innings during Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

The 25-year-old has a 9:3 K:BB through 8.1 spring innings, and Krol will begin the season as the top lefty in the Braves' bullpen. He's got a limited track record of major-league success, however, so if he struggles out of the gate he could lose his setup spot to the returning Eric O'Flaherty.

Braves' Ian Krol: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol agreed to a one-year, $900,000 deal with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration,'s Mark Bowman reports.

He pitched quite well out of the bullpen last year, posting a 3.18 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 56:13 K:BB in 51 innings. However, he is not particularly close to competing for saves, and should see most of his opportunities in middle relief in 2017.

Braves' Ian Krol: Records sixth hold of season in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol recorded his sixth hold of the season in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Milwaukee.

Entering the eighth inning with no outs and a runner on first, the left-hander retired both batters he faced on twelve pitches. Krol lowered his ERA to 2.57 on the season, as he hasn't allowed a runner to reach base while recording at least one strikeout in each of his last four appearances (four innings).
