Tigers notes: Krol the leading lefty in Tigers' bullpen

JUPITER, Fla. -- There's something different, something definitely intimidating, about most effective relief pitchers. Ian Krol, the Detroit Tigers' new lefty out of the bullpen, has that confidence and manner in spades. He's got a thick beard, stern expression and pitches like his car is double-parked.

Then this past December, Krol came to Detroit as part of the trade...

Mike Rizzo Just Robbed Detroit

The Nats traded Robbie Ray, Steve Lombardozzi and Ian Krol to the Tigers for Doug Fister. Or, as Fangraphs puts it: The Nationals surrendered a non-elite pitching prospect who has pitched a half season at Double-A and probably won’t rank in anyone’s Top 100 next spring, plus a couple of role players who might or might not end up amounting to anything. And in return, they’re...

Rookie Ian Krol didn't find out about Friday night's rainout until he showed up for work

Already one rainout removed from his sparkling major league debut Wednesday night, who could blame Nats rookie Ian Krol for eagerly arriving for work on Friday afternoon.

Ian Krol Has Some Ups, Apparently

We saw how electric Ian Krol's fastball was last night in his Major League debut against the New York Mets. Apparently, he's a freak athlete.  Check out this 38 inch jump with a weighted vest he completed while a member of the Oakland Athletics' farm system.
