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. Jun 28 - 12:26 AM

Date:

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 20 - 12:28 AM

Jon Gray finally notched his first big-league victory by allowing two runs over seven innings and striking out eight Friday against the Mets.

Gray had been 0-3 with 10 no-decisions in 13 big-league starts. Though he's struggled to pitch deep into games, he's really impressed with his stuff this year, more so than in his debut last season and in the high minors. If he were pitching anywhere other than Coors, he'd be a great flier in mixed leagues. As is, his fantasy upside is quite limited.
May 13 - 11:51 PM

Jon Gray pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing a lone hit, but didn't factor in the decision Saturday against the Giants.

Gray was awesome, but so was his counterpart, Johnny Cueto. They were so good that neither team scored until the 10th inning, leaving both as onlookers when the game was decided in the 13th. Gray walked two while striking out five to go with his one hit allowed, a single by Denard Span in the fourth inning. He's now turned in two consecutive above-average starts, with Saturday's being his best of the year, to lower his ERA to 5.40. The 24-year-old has quickly become a strong streaming option when he's pitching away from home; unfortunately, that won't be the case Friday, when Gray and the Rockies host the Mets.
May 7 - 8:35 PM

Jon Gray fanned 11 while allowing two runs over six innings Monday against the Padres.

That's better. Gray's rotation spot could have been in jeopardy with another poor performance tonight, but he was really strong after getting his first out tonight. Unfortunately, he allowed two runs before that occurred (the bottom of the first started with a two singles, a two-run double and a walk). Once he did get that first out, he set down 16 in a row through the sixth inning.
May 3 - 1:22 AM

Jon Gray was tagged for six runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Pirates on Wednesday.

Gray allowed hits to nine of the 21 batters he faced, and he's sporting an 11.42 ERA in two starts since coming off the disabled list. He's still one of the best bets among Rockies starters, but if he's not better next time out, there's the chance he could be replaced in the rotation.
