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

Gray and Julio Teheran locked horns for an old-fashioned pitching duel. Neither man bested the other, with both taking no-decisions before the Braves finally won the scoring-adverse affair with a run in the bottom of the ninth. 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.
Jul 17 - 5:40 PM

Jon Gray pitched very well in a no-decision versus the Phillies on Friday, giving up only two runs in 6 1/3 innings.

He struck out eight batters while giving up only three hits and two walks. Gray has held his own at Coors Field. He has a 4.67 ERA with a very impressive 95/29 K/BB ratio in 88 2/3 innings on the season. His record holds at 5-4.
Jul 9 - 1:14 AM

Jon Gray logged a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering three runs on six hits over his six innings of work.

The right-hander walked three and struck out four on the afternoon. All of the damage came during a three-run uprising in the second inning, started by a solo homer off the bay of Trayce Thompson. Gray bounced back nicely through, firing four scoreless innings to end his day. He'll bring a 4.81 ERA and 87/27 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Phillies at home on Friday.
Jul 3 - 7:04 PM

Jon Gray pitched seven innings and allowed four runs Monday in a win over the Blue Jays.

Gray was allowed to start on four days' rest tonight despite complaining of fatigue and a heavy arm last time out. He was plenty effective, too, striking out eight and walking none. He's lasted seven innings in six of his 13 starts.

Jon Gray (shoulder) has been cleared to start Monday versus the Blue Jays after getting through a 14-pitch bullpen session Friday with no issues.

Gray had to be pulled from his last start because of shoulder fatigue, but it's apparently no big deal. He'll face a stiff test in going up against the tough Toronto offense at Coors Field.
Jun 24 - 5:48 PM

Jon Gray (shoulder) plans to make his next start Monday against the Blue Jays.

Gray left Wednesday's outing with a tired shoulder but doesn't see it as a long-term issue. "I passed all the strength tests," said Gray. "My shoulder’s just a little bit fatigued, but I think I will be back out there." Even if Gray does pitch Monday, he won't be a recommended fantasy play against a tough Blue Jays lineup at Coors Field.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Jon Gray was lifted from Wednesday's start against the Yankees due to fatigue and a heavy arm.

Gray allowed four runs over four innings in Wednesday's loss. This doesn't sound like a serious injury, but the 24-year-old right-hander's status for his next scheduled start against the Blue Jays has not yet been determined.
Jun 22 - 4:57 PM

Jon Gray allowed four earned runs over four innings Wednesday in the Rockies' loss to the Yankees.

Gray's day was long finished when Starlin Castro hit a walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth inning, so he escaped the poor outing with a no-decision. Gray walked five and gave up three hits, including a grand slam to Chase Headley in the bottom of the second. The 24-year-old right-hander has decent peripherals, but he's sitting on a 4.80 season ERA. A date with the Blue Jays is next.
Jun 22 - 4:39 PM

Jon Gray took the loss Friday against the Marlins after giving up two runs in six innings.

His only mistake was a two-run homer to Christian Yelich in his final inning of work, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. The young right-hander struck out four and walked a pair and holds a 4.55 ERA and 72/19 K/BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings through 11 starts this season. He gets another road start next week against the Yankees, so he could be worth a look as a matchup play in mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 17 - 11:56 PM

Jon Gray yielded three runs -- one earned -- in seven innings Friday in a no-decision versus the Padres.

Gray struck out seven and walked none before leaving with a 4-3 lead. Unfortunately, Jake McGee took a blown save in the ninth, costing Gray the win. Gray has turned in three quality starts in five tries at Coors Field. He's not yet an every-week play in mixed leagues, but he doesn't always have to be benched at home, at least not against weaker opponents.
Jun 11 - 12:21 AM

Jon Gray racked up a career-high 12 strikeouts over seven strong innings in a victory over the Padres on Sunday.

Gray surrendered just two runs on five hits and a walk in the ballgame. Wil Myers was responsible for all of the damage against him, with an RBI double in the fourth and a solo homer in the sixth. That's now six quality starts in the last seven outings for Gray who could be blossoming into the ace that the Rockies desperately need. He'll look to carry over this dominance when he takes on these same Padres at home on Friday.
Jun 6 - 12:17 AM

Jon Gray allowed three runs over six innings in a win against the Reds on Tuesday.

On a night when the Rockies offense had its way, Gray was able to keep the Reds largely in check. Two solo home runs, by Joey Votto and Jay Bruce, were among the five hits Gray allowed, and he also walked three on the night. Still, it was a quality start for the right-hander, who now has five quality starts in his last six outings after a brutal beginning to the year. Because of that slow start, Gray still has a 5.76 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, but he's also got a 49/16 K/BB ratio over 45 1/3 innings. The 24-year-old should have another strong showing Sunday at the Padres.
Jun 1 - 12:52 AM

Jon Gray limited the Red Sox to two runs over 7 1/3 innings in a win Thursday.

Gray allowed five hits and walked three on the evening, with David Ortiz' two-run homer in the first inning accounting for all the Red Sox' offense. Gray settled in after that, allowing just three hits and three walks while striking out six the rest of the way. The righty is 2-2 with a 5.95 ERA that doesn't tell the whole story, as he's pitched much better in the month of May save for one clunker against the Cardinals. Gray will face off against the Reds on Tuesday.
May 26 - 10:29 PM

Jon Gray was lit up by the Cardinals on Thursday, allowing nine runs over 3 1/3 innings in a loss.

Gray struggled from the outset, getting a quick out before letting the next four hitters to reach, plating three runs. After another run in the second, things really fell apart for the young right-hander in the fourth, as the Cards scored six times, five of those runs belonging to Gray. All told, he allowed eight hits and walked three in the abbreviated start. He fell to 1-2, owning a 6.75 ERA and 1.38 WHIP through six starts. An interleague start against the Red Sox is on tap for Tuesday.
