Jon Gray was hit around for five runs in 4 2/3 innings, losing Monday's start versus the Pirates.

The Pirates greeted him with two solo home runs in the first inning and it didn't get much better the rest of the way. Gray allowed nine hits and walked one while striking out five. He remains winless in nine starts, carrying a 5.53 ERA with a 1.62 WHIP and a 40/14 K/BB ratio over 40 2/3 innings. Gray will face the Dodgers in a home start next.
Sep 22 - 12:12 AM

Jon Gray allowed two runs in 4 2/3 innings, taking the loss on Monday facing the Dodgers.

Gray had the Herculean task of trying to outduel Clayton Kershaw and he understandably came up short. The Dodgers scored their first run on a sacrifice fly in the second inning and chased Gray in the fifth following a walk, a single, and a double with two outs. He gave up six hits and two walks while striking out eight. The right-hander holds a 5.00 ERA, a 1.56 WHIP, and a 35/13 K/BB ratio over 36 innings. Gray is scheduled next for a home match versus the Padres.
Sep 15 - 1:32 AM

Jon Gray shut the Padres out over five innings, but took a no-decision in Tuesday's loss.

Gray was finally able to notch a solid outing after one shellacking and two mediocre performances recently. He limited the Padres to two hits and two walks while striking out six. The young right-hander has a disappointing 5.17 ERA along with a 1.53 WHIP, and 27/11 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings across seven starts. Gray will look to keep it going in Seattle against the Mariners next.
Sep 9 - 1:00 AM

Jon Gray surrendered four runs and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

With a 6.15 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP through six starts, Gray is pitching about as well as his minor league numbers suggested he would. This was the first one of his starts that the Rockies managed to win, though Gray wasn't involved in the decision.
Sep 3 - 12:50 AM

Jon Gray struggled in a no-decision against the Pirates on Friday, surrendering three runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings of work.

Gray did rack up an impressive six strikeouts on the evening while walking two. It's the second straight start that Gray has failed to make it out of the fifth inning. Jung Ho Kang delivered most of the damage against him with a pair of RBI singles. Gray will look to bounce back and improve upon his 6.00 ERA when he takes the hill against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Aug 28 - 10:26 PM

Jon Gray lasted just 1 2/3 innings Friday against the Mets, giving up seven runs on eight hits.

It was ugly. 10 out of the 15 batters he faced reached base against him. The big blow was a grand slam from Yoenis Cespedes in the second inning. Gray had allowed just five runs (four earned) over his previous three starts in the majors. He'll attempt to rebound next time out against the Braves on the road.
Aug 22 - 1:05 AM

Jon Gray tossed five innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Rockies' loss to the Padres.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said before the game that he would keep Gray on a strict pitch count no matter the situation, and he stuck to that plan on Saturday night. Gray was superb over five innings, yielding only four hits and striking out five without issuing a walk, but the 23-year-old right-hander got pulled at just 69 pitches -- 50 of which were strikes. And the Colorado bullpen immediately blew the lead.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss plans to keep Jon Gray on a strict pitch count.

Weiss limited Gray to 75 pitches last time out against the Mets and said he should see about the same workload Saturday versus the Padres. The 23-year-old right-hander has tossed 124 1/3 innings between the majors and minors this year. The Rockies are expected to shut him down once he reaches 150.

Jon Gray pitched well, allowing only one run in six innings, but was stuck with a no-decision as the Rockies' bullpen faltered and allowed the Mets to win on Monday.

The 23-year-old allowed only one hit, a solo home run to Travis d'Arnaud in the second inning. He walked two and struck out five. In his first two major league starts, Gray has yielded three runs on six hits and four walks with nine strikeouts in 10 innings. The Rockies plan to shut Gray down after his next 20-25 innings. He'll pitch at home versus the Padres next.
Aug 10 - 9:47 PM

Jon Gray entered Tuesday's major league debut with about 30-35 innings left this season before he's shut down.

He went four frames against the Mariners, so he's left with 26-31 innings for the rest of 2015. Even if Gray only averages about five innings per start the rest of the way, that means he'll still need to be shut down before the end of the season. "We have the big picture in mind, when talking about bumping innings from one year to the next," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "We don’t want to overwhelm him."

Jon Gray allowed three runs -- two earned -- over four innings in his major league debut on Tuesday.

Taking on the Mariners, Gray struck out four while giving up five hits and two walks. He didn't factor in the decision. The 23-year-old has huge upside but is pitching on a losing team that plays its home games in a hitter's ballpark. Gray will get a chance to pitch in a normal atmosphere when the Rockies travel to face the Mets on Monday.
Aug 5 - 1:38 AM

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Jon Gray from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners after weeks of speculation that he was on the verge of a callup. The 23-year-old right-hander was sporting a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A and could have value as a matchups-to-matchups play down the stretch. He's not a great fantasy bet in his debut against the M's at Coors Field.
Aug 4 - 6:02 PM

Jon Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners.

There have been rumors for weeks that Gray was on the verge of a callup, and the well-built 23-year-old right-hander is now finally getting his shot. Gray, the second overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, owns a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque. He's MLB-ready and one of the top young starters in baseball, though Coors Field can be hell on pitchers of all profiles. Fantasy owners might want to take it start-by-start with him out of the gate.

Aug 3 - 8:25 AM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday that he will stick with a four-man rotation through July 28.

Top pitching prospect Jon Gray was an obvious candidate to replace Chad Bettis (elbow), but it appears the club will stick with a four-man alignment for now. Gray, the second overall pick in the 2013 draft, holds a 3.32 ERA and 80/29 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings since the beginning of May at Triple-A Albuquerque. He should get a shot before too long.
