Jon Gray exited his start against the Giants on Friday with left foot soreness.
The Rockies' Root Sports broadcast referred to the injury as "very, very mild," so it looks like the club dodged a bullet here. They were certainly due a break when it comes to injuries. Gray should probably be OK to make his next spring start. Mar 24 - 5:39 PM

Jon Gray left Friday's start against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

Gray gave up seven consecutive hits and five runs to the Giants in the third inning before being pulled. For what it's worth, it didn't look to be anything arm-related based on how Gray was conversing with the trainer and Rockies manager Bud Black in the dugout. The club should have an update on their ace soon.
Mar 24 - 5:01 PM

Jon Gray fired five innings of one-run ball Sunday in a sharp Cactus League start against the Athletics.

Gray struck out seven, issued only one walk, and held the A's to two hits. The one run he allowed came on an RBI single by Adam Rosales in the top of the second inning. Gray boasts a 1.42 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings (four starts) this spring. The young right-hander carries major fantasy upside into his age-25 campaign.
Mar 19 - 6:31 PM

Jon Gray allowed just one hit over 3 2/3 scoreless innings Tuesday in a Cactus League outing against the Athletics.

Gray walked three but countered that with six strikeouts in the solid spring training appearance. The one hit he allowed was a two-out single by Matt Chapman in the bottom of the second inning. Gray projects to open the 2017 season as the Rockies' No. 1 starter after posting a 4.61 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 185 strikeouts in 168 innings last year.
Mar 14 - 5:42 PM

Jon Gray started against Puerto Rico and spun three scoreless frames in the Rockies' 10-2 victory.

He gave up a pair of hits, generated two strikeouts and didn't walk anyone. These exhibition games against international teams don't count in the spring training stats, but he has now given up just one run in seven innings. The Rockies number one starter is following up a rookie season in which he had a 4.61 ERA with 185 strikeouts in 168 frames.
Mar 9 - 9:41 PM

Jon Gray allowed one run on one hit over two innings in Saturday's Cactus League showdown with the Mariners.

That lone hit came in the form of a home run off the bat of Mike Zunino in the second inning. Owning a Rockies starter is always a somewhat risky fantasy prospect, but Gray has the arm to make it work, striking out 185 in 168 frames this past season. He still ended the campaign with a 4.61 ERA, but could be useable in road starts as a streamer this year. And who knows, maybe the 25-year-old right-hander can even tame Coor's Field. Stay tuned.
Mar 4 - 6:11 PM

Jon Gray allowed two hits but held the Dodgers off the scoreboard in his two innings of work in a start on Monday.

He struck out two batters without a walk. Gray punched out 185 batters in 168 innings last season. His 4.61 ERA was quite good considering he pitched half his games in Coors Field. Still just 25 years old, he will make a good fantasy streamer in his road starts this year.
Feb 27 - 11:17 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Aug 24, 2016 12:23:00 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.
