Detroit Tigers trade rumors: Starting rotation edition

As each day passes, the Detroit Tigers are getting closer and closer to the trade deadline. The one trade they may have to make may involve starting pitcher Max Scherzer. Scherzer turned down a 6-year deal worth $144 million dollars before the season started and is set to become a free agent after the season and does not appear to want to stay in Detroit. That being said, a deal...

Ray will fill in again to give Porcello extra rest

Robbie Ray is going to spend a little more time in the Tigers' rotation. With Anibal Sanchez returning from the 15-day disabled list to start Sunday night against the Red Sox, the Tigers were expected to send Ray back to Triple-A Toledo. Ray has certainly pitched well enough to stay in the majors -- he has a 0.79 ERA in his two starts while Sanchez was recovering from a blister...

Detroit Tigers: Robbie Ray needs to stay

When Detroit Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez went to the DL, the Tigers called up minor league pitcher Robbie Ray to come and fill in while Sanchez recovered from a blister on his middle finger. Ray has done that and more. Ray has started two games and has allowed only a single run in 11 and 1/3 innings pitched and has one victory on his resume that he earned in his major league debut...

Tigers Notes: Ray's developing curve key to his future

DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers left-hander Robbie Ray was impressive in winning his major league debut on Tuesday, and will get another start Sunday against the Minnesota Twins. He pretty much dominated the Houston Astros by allowing one run on five hits over 5 1/3 innings, and that heightened hopes that Ray could end up making obtaining him from the Washington Nationals for rotation...

MLB News: Detroit Tigers SP Robbie Ray Earns Win In Debut

Before Tuesday night, Robbie Ray‘s claim to fame to the Detroit Tigers organization consisted of being part of the most “lopsided trade” during this past winter. And we aren’t talking about the worst trade for the Tigers, but rather the worst trade in all of Major League Baseball as a consensus.  In early December, weeks before St. Nick stuffed his belly down several chimneys...

Tigers Notes: Ray will start Sunday against Minnesota

DETROIT -- Brad Ausmus will face millions of decisions in his managerial career. Few will be easier than announcing that Robbie Ray will start Sunday's game against Minnesota. "I think, after last night, that was a given," Ausmus said before Wednesday's game. In his major-league debut, Ray allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings as the Tigers routed the Astros. By the...

Robbie Ray wins in debut, Miguel Cabrera perks up in big way for sizzling Tigers

They just take a while, that’s all. On a night that rookie Robbie Ray, as the winning pitcher sprinkled a fine debut onto the Doug Fister deal to make it the most palatable it’s been since it was done, there was a sign of what’s probably to come. But it didn’t involve Ray — who pitched well as the Tigers trounced the Astros, 11-4, for their seventh consecutive victory...

Tigers notes: Ray out to prove he belongs

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Through no fault of his own, Robbie Ray will always be known as one of the players the Tigers acquired from the Washington Nationals for Doug Fister. Although the trade was criticized, there's nothing Ray, Ian Krol and Steve Lombardozzi can do about it, other than play to the best of their abilities.
