Braves and LHP Ian Krol avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract.

Krol spent time in the minors in 2016 but posted a 3.18 ERA and 56/13 K/BB ratio over 51 frames with the big club. He was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super 2 qualifier.
Jan 13 - 2:51 PM

Braves recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Krol owns a 4.38 ERA and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A while holding left-handed batters to a .136/.136/.182 batting line. The 25-year-old was acquired from the Tigers over the winter in the Cameron Maybin deal.

The Braves are calling up left-hander Ian Krol from Triple-A Gwinnett, reports FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

The corresponding roster move isn't yet known. Krol, who was acquired from the Tigers in the Cameron Maybin deal, owns a 4.38 ERA and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A. The 25-year-old owns a 4.91 ERA over 110 appearances in the majors.

Braves optioned LHP Ian Krol to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Krol had been competing for a spot as a left-handed reliever in the Braves bullpen. He certainly didn't do himself any favors in Grapefruit League play, posting a 12.71 ERA and 2.29 WHIP in his 5 2/3 innings. He'll try to right the ship at Triple-A.

Braves acquired LHPs Ian Krol and Gabe Speier from the Tigers for OF Cameron Maybin and cash considerations.

Krol struggled to a 5.79 ERA in 28 innings with the Tigers in 2015. He's still just 24 years old, so the Braves at least have a southpaw that will theoretically have room to improve on his disappointing work this last season.

Tigers recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo.

Krol has had multiple stints with the Tigers this season while posting a 6.75 ERA and 22/13 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 relief innings. The 24-year-old will hope for improvement down the stretch.

Tigers optioned LHP Ian Krol to Triple-A Toledo.

Krol was hammered for four earned runs in two-thirds of an inning Sunday against the Red Sox, lifting his season ERA to 6.75. The left-hander should be back up when rosters expand on the first of September.

Tigers recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo.

While Krol owns a spectacular 0.89 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 22/9 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings at Triple-A, he simply has not been able to get the job done at the big league level this season. He'll work in middle relief for the Tigers.
Sun, Jul 5, 2015 05:05:00 PM

Tigers optioned LHP Ian Krol to Triple-A Toledo.

Krol has allowed nine runs over 9 1/3 relief innings for the Tigers this season. He'll return to a 1.15 ERA at Toledo.

Tigers recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo.

Krol is the corresponding move to the demotion of Shane Greene. He's been fantastic at Triple-A since being optioned on April 23, boasting a 1.15 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings. He should see work as a lefty reliever for the Tigers.
Fri, Jun 12, 2015 02:57:00 PM

Ian Krol will be called up on Friday.

Krol has posted a 1.15 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings since his demotion to the Triple-A level on April 23. He should do well in a lefty relief role for Detroit.
Thu, Jun 11, 2015 01:21:00 PM

Tigers optioned LHP Ian Krol to Triple-A Toledo.

Krol has registered a 4.76 ERA and 5/3 K/BB ratio in 5 2/3 innings of relief this season for the Tigers. The left-hander will probably be up and down all year.
Thu, Apr 23, 2015 09:30:00 AM

Ian Krol (forerm) will return to Grapefruit League action on Saturday.

Krol had a scheduled appearance Wednesday scratched due to tightness in his left forearm, but that's apparently gone away. The reliever is competing for a spot in the Opening Day bullpen.
Fri, Mar 20, 2015 09:40:00 AM

Ian Krol didn't pitch Wednesday due to left forearm tightness.

The good news is that the injury isn't considered serious. The southpaw will likely throw a side session Thursday. Krol is fighting for a job in the Tigers' bullpen but he's struggled this spring, owning a 5.40 ERA and 2.00 WHIP through five appearances.
