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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Krol was promoted to the majors Saturday, Maria Guardado of MLB.com 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.
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.
Krol chose to become a free agent after being outrighted from the Braves 40-man roster Wednesday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com 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.
Krol (oblique) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
