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. Mar 26 - 9:09 AM

Date:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Tigers optioned LHP Ian Krol to Triple-A Toledo.
