Breaking Down Mariners LHP Robbie Ray With Bill Hezel of Driveline Baseball

Last December, Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto made a huge splash, signing reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Robbie Ray to a massive deal worth up to $115 million.

Ray is known for his strikeout prowess, as well as mechanical changes he has made that have allowed him to stay in the strike zone. The left-hander has had mixed results in 2022, and added some interesting new things to his repertoire.

I sat down with Bill Hazel of Driveline Baseball to take a look at Ray’s changes in both pitch arsenal and mechanics. Driveline is a facility that looks to help players improve through the use of data, research and constant iteration.
