Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray is drawing interest from “a few teams” as a bullpen possibility, Bob Nightengale of USA Today writes. The 28-year-old left-hander has made only three relief appearances in his career (but none since his first season in 2014); however, after several respectable seasons as a starter, the soon-to-be free agent has tanked in 2020. He owns an awful 8.33 ERA/7.77 FIP with 8.33 BB/9 in 27 innings this year, although some clubs may have hope that Ray’s high-strikeout ways will lead to success in the bullpen during the stretch run of the season. Nevertheless, there’s no guarantee the Diamondbacks will move Ray before the Aug. 31 deadline, as they entered Monday a manageable two games out of a wild-card spot.
