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. Apr 28 - 2:03 AM

Date:

Jon Gray finished Friday's start with a mixed performance, as he struck out 10 but he also surrendered a couple of homers and five earned runs against the Dodgers.

This was Gray's first start of the 2016 season. He'd missed much of the spring with an abdomen injury, but he managed to strike out 10 batters in just five innings of work on Friday. While that's encouraging, the right-hander still calls Coors Field home, which resulted in a pair of homers and seven hits. That's just the cost of doing business in the high altitude. We'll wait to see how he does away from home before we draw too many conclusions.
Apr 23 - 12:54 AM

Rockies activated RHP Jon Gray from the 15-day disabled list.

Gray will make his season debut on Friday versus the Dodgers after recovering from an abdominal strain. While an exciting young arm, Gray posted a 5.53 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over his first 40 2/3 major league innings in 2015 and isn't a recommended option in mixed leagues.
Apr 22 - 5:29 PM

Jon Gray (abdomen) will make his regular-season debut on Friday against the Dodgers.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss confirmed the assignment on Wednesday morning. Gray could make for a decent fantasy streaming option this season in the right matchups, but it's probably best to ignore him Friday night at Coors Field with a good Los Angeles lineup coming to town. The young right-hander posted a 5.53 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 40/14 K/BB ratio over his first 40 2/3 major league innings in 2015.
Apr 20 - 11:38 AM

Jon Gray (abdomen) could make his season debut for the Rockies on Friday versus the Dodgers.

Gray gave up three runs and four hits and struck out eight over four innings in his second rehab start with High-A Modesto on Friday. It's possible the Rockies will ask him to make one more rehab start and go with Christian Bergman again. We should have more clarity on the situation soon.

Jon Gray (abdomen) will make a rehab start Friday with High-A Modesto.

If it goes well, he could be cleared to join the Rockies' major league rotation next week. Gray was placed on the disabled list at the end of spring training with an abdominal strain. The young right-hander carries a lot of real-life upside, but he makes for a poor fantasy bet in 2016 with half his starts scheduled for the thin air of Coors Field. Gray, 24, posted a 5.53 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 40/14 K/BB ratio over his first 40 2/3 major league innings in 2015.
Apr 12 - 6:19 PM

Jon Gray (abdomen) will not start on Thursday versus the Giants as hoped.

He hasn't had a setback with his abdominal strain but just isn't ready yet. Christian Bergman will continue to fill in as the Rockies' fifth starter until Gray is activated.
Apr 10 - 1:58 PM

Jon Gray (abdomen) is slated to make a minor league rehab start Friday.

Gray is working his way back from an abdominal strain and threw 55 pitches in a live batting practice session on Monday. The Rockies have yet to officially announce where he'll pitch on Friday, but it will most likely be at Triple-A Albuquerque. He might only need one minor league rehab start, so there's a chance he could be ready when the Rockies first need a fifth starter on April 14. Either way, he's on track to join to make his season debut soon.
Apr 4 - 11:00 PM

Rockies placed RHP Jon Gray on the 15-day disabled list with an abdominal strain.

Gray is recovering well from the injury and is slated to make a rehab start this week. He's hoping to rejoin the rotation next week.
Apr 3 - 1:20 PM

Jon Gray (abdomen) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Thursday.

Gray, who is battling a minor abdominal strain, will throw a simulated game next and then make a rehab start sometime next week. If that goes well, he'll rejoin the Rockies' rotation the following week. "I still have a lot of stuff to do," he said.

The Rockies will use a four-man rotation until April 14-16.

Jon Gray (abdomen) should be ready to go at that point. Until then, Jorge De La Rosa, Chad Bettis, Tyler Chatwood and Jordan Lyles will man Colorado's underwhelming rotation.
Mar 31 - 7:31 PM

Jon Gray (abdominal) expects to join the Rockies' starting rotation after their first regular-season series.

"Luckily it's not terrible," the young right-hander said of his abdominal strain on Thursday. Gray suffered the injury in the first inning of his Cactus League start March 22 against the Brewers. He will be looking to take a big step forward in 2016 after posting a 5.53 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 40/14 K/BB ratio over his first 40 2/3 major league innings last season. We'd bet against a full-on breakout in Colorado.
Mar 24 - 11:20 AM

Jon Gray was diagnosed with an abdominal strain following an MRI.

Gray suffered the injury during the first inning of his start on Tuesday. The Rockies haven't announced a timetable for his return, but obviously Opening Day is in doubt at this point. The 24-year-old appeared likely to land the fifth spot in Colorado's rotation.
Mar 23 - 11:13 AM

Jon Gray will undergo an MRI after exiting Tuesday's start with tightness in his abdomen area.

Gray appeared to feel something tug when he made an errant throw to second base in hopes of starting a double play on Tuesday against the Brewers. Even if the MRI should come back clean, chances are Gray could be shut down for a little while. His status for Opening Day is looking shaky.
Mar 22 - 7:40 PM

Jon Gray left Tuesday's start versus the Brewers with an apparent injury.

Gray made a throw to second base in the first inning in an attempt at a double play, but the ball sailed into the outfield. The right-hander was then met on the mound by coaches and a trainer and eventually walked slowly off the field and into the clubhouse. It's difficult to speculate on what Gray is dealing with, but the Rockies should have an update on him shortly.
