Robbie Ray News
The Seattle Mariners shifted left-hander Robbie Ray (elbow) from the 15-day to the 60-day injured list on Monday. Ray had Tommy John surgery in May and will not be returning to the mound until the 2024 season at the earliest, making this just a procedural move to open up a spot for Ty Adcock to join Seattle's bullpen. Ray made just one start for the Mariners this season, allowing three runs across 3 1/3 innings of work while striking out three.
Seattle Mariners left-hander Robbie Ray (elbow) is scheduled to head to the team's spring training facilities in Arizona on May 26 to begin post-surgery work, according to general manager Justin Hollander. The normal progression for recovery from Tommy John surgery is to not begin throwing until at least six months after the procedure, which was on May 3 for Ray. The southpaw hurler said on May 13 that 10 days after the surgery, his rehab process consists mostly of wrist and hand movement as well as gradually straightening his left arm. With the recovery period for Tommy John surgery typically at 12-18 months, Ray is unlikely to be ready to go by the beginning of spring training next year.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Robbie Ray (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Wednesday. This is a disappointing end to the season for the left-hander, who was only able to make one start this season. He's expected to be sidelined until mid-season in 2024 after undergoing flexor tendon repair surgery and a full UCL reconstruction. The 31-year-old has three years left on a massive five-year deal he signed with Seattle. Fantasy managers in redraft formats can safely drop Ray.
Robbie Ray wasn't the ace in Seattle he had been in Toronto, but he was still more than solid with a 12-12 record and 3.71 ERA over 189 IP. His 3.59 xERA and 3.58 xFIP were both a little better than his ERA, so betting on slight improvement in 2023 would be prudent. However, Ray might have an easy path to going back to the ace level. He introduced a sinker to his repertoire against righties last season that didn't generate whiffs (8.2 SwStr%), didn't get him ahead in the count (48.7 Zone%), and allowed RHB to hit .315 with a .595 slugging percentage. Scrapping it in favor of the fastball (59.4 Zone%, 11.4 SwStr%) and slider (19.5 SwStr%, 39.2 Zone%, 35.6% chase) he previously relied on could work wonders. Even if he doesn't, Ray will always be an excellent source of strikeouts in fantasy (27.4 K% last year) and figures to earn his fair share of wins with Seattle's improving roster. An ADP of 99.21 is a fantastic price for Ray's combination of floor and ceiling.
