Robbie Ray agrees to a one-year, $8 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays. He re-signs with the Blue Jays after the Diamondbacks traded him away on August 31st.
Through 30.1 innings with the Diamondbacks, Robby Ray had a 12.48 K/9, 9.00 BB/9, and 7.84 ERA. With the Blue Jays, Ray pitched 20.2 innings with a 10.89 K/9, 6.10 BB/9, and a 4.79 ERA. Ray showed some slight improvement with the Blue Jays, but still a concerning walk rate and ERA. Earlier in the 2020 offseason, Ray tinkered with his windup, and that possibly contributed to continued struggles with command.
Robbie Ray took the loss in Game 1 of the Blue Jays' Wild Card Round matchup with the Rays, giving up one run on one hit and a walk over three innings.
Ray followed Matt Shoemaker's opening three innings in this one. The sporadic lefty pitched well in this one, striking out five in his brief outing. Toronto's offense just couldn't get anything going against Blake Snell. The Blue Jays will now turn to Hyun-Jin Ryu in a must-win Game 2.
Robbie Ray allowed three hits over four scoreless innings during the Blue Jays' 14-1 Wednesday night win over the Yankees. He walked four while striking out five.
This was Ray's best start since joining the Blue Jays at the trade deadline. The 28-year-old lefty has a 6.62 ERA over 20 2/3 innings of work with his new team.
Robbie Ray will get the start on Wednesday vs. the Yankees and Hyun Jin Ryu will start Thursday for Toronto.
The left-hander is not a recommended streamer in the final week of the fantasy regular season. Ray holds a 7.17 ERA, 1.91 WHIP, and a 63:41 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings between Arizona and Toronto this season.
Robbie Ray struggled in Friday's loss to the Phillies, surrendering five runs on five hits with four walks and six strikeouts over his 4 1/3 innings of work.
