Robbie Ray News
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Robbie Ray helped extend the team's winning streak to six games Saturday, as he picked up his own 12th victory of the season with six innings of shutout ball. He allowed six hits and no walks and recorded three strikeouts. Ray has six consecutive quality starts, and he has allowed more than three earned runs in a game just twice since June 6. He has a 3.45 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with 183 strikeouts in 161 2/3 innings this year.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Robbie Ray only lasted three innings in the 8-5 loss against the Houston Astros after giving up six runs on 10 hits, including two home runs. He also struck out just one batter but didn't allow a walk. Over 20 starts, Ray is 8-7 with a 3.90 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 27.9% strikeout rate. The left-hander isn't a Cy Young contender like last season, but he's posted respectable numbers in each category, making him a likely must-start in every format.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Robbie Ray had a solid outing against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday. He pitched six innings and allowed four hits, two walks and one earned run while striking out six. Unfortunately, he wound up with a no decision in the game. Ray has now posted three straight quality starts, allowing just two earned runs across 20 innings over those three starts. The reigning AL Cy Young winner has labored through the year overall, pitching to a 4.07 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP while going 6-6. However, this recent stretch suggests that he may be turning a corner. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday.
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.
