Atlanta Braves trade rumors: Relief Pitchers

The trade deadline is quickly approaching as the Atlanta Braves sit comfortably in last place. At this point, they would have to win every single game to even be playoff relevant. Each game is a complete gamble as to whether the batting or the pitching will be successful, but they never seem to both be chugging along at the same time. This leads to constant frustration from the whole...

Braves trade Cameron Maybin to Tigers for pair of relievers

The Atlanta Braves fire sale continued today, as the club dealt outfielder Cameron Maybin and cash considerations to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for relievers Ian Krol and Gabe Speier. Maybin returns to the Tigers organization, where he was drafted in the 1st round back in 2005. Acquired by the Braves in the Craig Kimbrel deal, 2015 proved to be a solid season for the center...

Ian Krol’s new found velocity throws a pleasant monkey wrench in Tigers’ bullpen plans.

Ian Krol came out the gate in 2014 showing that he was going to be a reliable middle reliever for years for the Tigers, making you feel just a little bit better about seeing Doug Fister depart. Then came a disabled list stint for bicep tendinitis in June and Krol was never the same again. He was so bad upon his return from the DL, he was sent to AAA Toledo to never be heard from...

Tigers option Krol, other moves coming Friday

DETROIT -- In addition to the blockbuster trade, the Tigers made a few other moves after Thursday's 7-4 loss to the White Sox.   First, they optioned the contract of left-hander Ian Krol to Triple-A Toledo. Krol, who was excellent early, with an ERA of 3.38 in April and 1.59 in May, has struggled since. In June, Krol had a stint on the DL in addition to his 11.12 ERA in eight games...

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. "The way he pitches, it seems like he's kind of a gunslinger," Tigers manager...

Ian Krol credits team chemistry for easy transition to Tigers

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Last year was a pretty crazy one for Ian Krol. Originally a seventh-round pick by the Oakland Athletics in 2009, Krol was sent to the Washington Nationals last March.  Krol, who turns 23 on May 9, went 2-1 with a 3.95 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 32 games (27 1/3 innings) with the Nationals last season. 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...
