Blue Jays trade for Robbie Ray

MLB Trade deadline

The Toronto Blue Jays have traded for Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray. In return, the D-Backs will receive a pitching prospect named Travis Bergen and cash considerations.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan tweeted about the trade on Monday afternoon.

Ray has been in the league since 2014, starting with the Detroit Tigers, then moving to the Diamondbacks for four-and-a-half seasons. His career ERA is 4.25, and he just reached 1,000 career strikeouts on August 16, 2020.

His one All-Star appearance came in 2017. In that season, he had excellent stretches that included a five-start stretch in which he went 5-0 with a 0.24 ERA. Ray allowed just 14 hits in that five game stretch.

Pending a physical, Ray will be able to get into the Blue Jays’ rotation almost immediately.
