Jon Gray struggled in Thursday's loss to the Giants, allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.
Gray also walked three in what was a less-than-stellar finish to his 2016 season. The Giants ripped him for a pair of runs in the fourth inning, then came back around for three more in the sixth. The 24-year-old right-hander's 4.61 ERA might not inspire much confidence, but Gray also rocked a 185/59 K/BB ratio across 168 innings. He closed the season with double-digit strikeout showings in two of his last three starts. Sep 30 - 1:31 AM

Jon Gray fanned 10 while giving up four runs in four innings Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Gray is the fifth pitcher ever to strike out 10 while working four innings of less. All five of those outings have come since 2013. Along with the 10 K's, Gray have up two homers and three walks to the 19 batters he faced. He also hit a batter. It took him 106 pitches to get through those four innings. Considering his workload this year, he probably should have been pulled earlier.

Jon Gray was absolutely dominant on Saturday, hurling a complete game shutout while punching out 16 batters in an 8-0 victory over the Padres.

This was one of the best games thrown by any pitcher in baseball this season -- especially when you consider it was played at Coors Field. He allowed just four hits -- all singles -- and didn't walk anyone. He even picked off one of the few baserunners. Gray fanned four batters in the second inning and six in a row at one point. The 16 strikeouts is a new Rockies franchise record. Gray has had an up-and-down season but today's gem was the best of his career. He improves to 10-8 with a 4.42 ERA after 27 starts. He has a very nice 172/53 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 148 2/3 innings.

Jon Gray got beat around for six runs -- five earned -- in four innings in a loss to the Padres on Saturday.

This looked like a good matchup on paper -- getting out of Coors Field to play the Padres at Petco Park. But alas he took a beating anyway. Five of the runs came in the second inning as the Padres managed to string some hits together and benefited from a catcher's interference call. Gray allowed eight hits and issued three bases-on-balls while fanning three. He falls to 9-8 with a 4.69 ERA in 149 2/3 innings. He will toe the rubber versus the Padres again next weekend, this time at Coors.
Sep 11 - 12:37 AM

Jon Gray struggled in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing five runs on seven hits over his seven frames.

Gray walked one and struck out three on the day. Most of the damage against him came during a four-run uprising in the seventh, highlighted by three-run bomb off the bat of Socrates Brito. He'll look to get back on track when he brings a 4.51 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into Saturday's premium matchup against the Padres in San Diego.
Sep 4 - 7:47 PM

Jon Gray struck out eight over six scoreless innings Monday in a defeat of the Dodgers.

Just when it seemed like Gray was out of gas, he's come back with a couple of nice starts. He's struck out as many batters in his last two outings (18) as he did in his previous four. The Rockies will want to be careful for Gray in September, which could mean shutting him down a little early. He's currently slated to face the Diamondbacks on Sunday, but the Rockies have Thursday off and could shuffle their rotation some.
Aug 30 - 12:44 AM

Jon Gray struck out 10 while allowing two runs over six innings against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Gray gave up just four hits and walked three, but he didn't factor in the decision. Even so, it was a promising turn for the 24-year-old, who hadn't struck out more than six in a game in his previous five starts before Tuesday. It's been an up and down year for the rookie, who owns a 4.61 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 142/46 K/BB ratio over 23 starts. Gray will next take on the Dodgers on Monday.
Aug 24 - 12:23 AM

Jon Gray surrendered four runs on six hits over four innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Nationals.

Gray's team won the game, but his lack of length prevented him from qualifying for the victory. He struck out three and walked one on the afternoon. The 24-year-old right-hander has survived life at Coors Field, kind of, sporting a 4.69 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. He had been in a really promising groove leading into August. A road start against the Brewers shows next on his schedule.
Aug 17 - 8:06 PM

Jon Gray took the loss Friday after being touched up for seven runs (six earned) over 4 1/3 innings.

And it wasn’t even a start at Coors Field. Gray gave up six hits and walked four, with the big blow coming on a go-ahead grand slam off the bat of Ryan Howard in the in the fifth inning. Gray fell to 8-6 on the year and saw his ERA jump from 4.26 to 4.55 on the year. He’ll try to bounce back against the Nationals next week in another road outing.
Aug 13 - 12:21 AM

Jon Gray was clobbered in Sunday's loss to the Marlins, allowing eight runs on 10 hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander walked one and struck out three on the afternoon. The Marlins jumped on him early with four runs in the first inning, then tacked on another four to chase him in the fourth, capped off by a two-run homer from Giancarlo Stanton. Even with as good as his stuff is, he'll be prone to the occasional blow-up at Coors Field. Gray will bring a 4.26 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into Friday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
Aug 7 - 7:50 PM

Jon Gray threw five scoreless innings in a win over the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Gray struck out six while yielded just two hits and two walks, but efficiency eluded him, as he needed 96 pitches to do it. The win was the third in a row for the 24-year-old, who is 8-4 with a 3.77 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 120/37 K/BB ratio over 114 2/3 innings this year. The Rockies have made it their mission to find pitchers who are more or less Coors-proof, and it seems as though they struck gold with their former first-round draft pick. Gray will next face the Marlins on Sunday.
Aug 3 - 12:50 AM

Jon Gray led the Rockies to a 3-1 victory on Wednesday by holding the Orioles to one run in seven innings, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning three.

His record improves to 7-4 with a 3.94 ERA. His owners will happily take the win without complaining about the lack of strikeouts today. For the season Gray has averaged more than a strikeout per inning (114 whiffs in 109 2/3 innings) but he wasn't missing bats in this game. He lines up for two starts at home next week, which presents his owners with a dilemma if they fear Coors Field.
Jul 27 - 10:56 PM

Jon Gray struck out eight in seven innings of one-run ball Friday in a victory over the Braves.

Gray has allowed two earned runs or fewer in 11 of his 17 starts this season, which is pretty incredible for a rookie pitcher in Coors. Overall, he's 6-4 with a 4.12 ERA and 111 strikeouts in 102 2/3 innings.
Jul 23 - 12:17 AM

Jon Gray scooped up a no-decision against the Braves on Sunday, tossing seven shutout innings.

For the season, Gray holds a 4.33 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 103/32 K/BB ratio over 95 2/3 innings. A home rematch with these same Braves shows next on his schedule.
