Jon Gray was outstanding in Monday's Cactus League victory over the Rangers, racking up nine strikeouts over 6 1/3 scoreless innings.
Gray allowed just four hits and a walk in the brilliant effort, running his fastball as high as 97 mph in the process. The right-hander entered play on Monday with a 10.22 ERA on the spring, but seemed to correct many of his ills with this terrific outing. Mar 20 - 12:16 AM

Jon Gray struggled again in the Cactus League on Wednesday, giving up five runs in four innings against the Dodgers.

It has not been a strong spring training for Gray, and the right-hander had another unimpressive outing against Los Angeles. The five runs in four innings give him a less-than-spectacular 10.22 ERA in his time in the Cactus League. The good news is Gray did strike out six hitters, and the better news is these games don't mean a whole lot. Gray still will pitch at the top of the Colorado rotation.
Mar 14 - 11:54 PM

Jon Gray was touched up for six runs over 3 1/3 innings in Friday’s Cactus League start against the Indians.

Gray gave up a two-run homer to Yan Gomes and a three-run shot to Francisco Mejia along the way. The 26-year-old has been doing some experimenting with his grips and pitches this spring, so one poor outing shouldn’t be taken too seriously. He remains the best bet in the Rockies’ rotation from a fantasy perspective and will get the ball against the Diamondbacks on Opening Day.
Mar 9 - 10:40 PM

Jon Gray gave up two runs in three innings of work against the Angels on Sunday in his second Cactus League start.

It was his second straight start against the Angels, and this one was much better than the first. Only one run was earned, and he struck out two while walking just one. Gray will pitch at the top of the rotation for the Rockies in 2018, and with his ability to miss bats, he has a chance to be an excellent fantasy starter despite pitching his home games in Coors Field.
Mar 4 - 4:57 PM

Jon Gray gave up two runs in his two innings of work on Tuesday against the Angels in his first start of the Cactus League.

Gray had a clean first, but surrendered two runs in the second on an RBI groundout by Nolan Fontana and a single by Kaleb Cowart. A toe injury limited Gray to just 110 innings in 2017, but he struck out 112 hitters with a 3.67 ERA while healthy. He's a potential breakout star even if half his starts are made in Coors Field.
Feb 27 - 4:09 PM

Jon Gray was shellacked on Wednesday, giving up seven hits and four runs in just 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks in the NL Wild Card Game.

Simply put, Gray didn't have it tonight, and the Arizona hitters did. He gave up two quick hits in the first, and then Paul Goldschmidt destroyed a fastball to give Arizona a 3-0 lead. Gray settled down a bit, but after giving up a run-scoring triple to Ketel Marte in the bottom of the second his night was through. 2017 was a strong overall season for Gray and the future is extremely bright for the hard-throwing right-hander, but we'll have to wait until 2018 to see it flesh out.

Rockies manager Bud Black on Sunday officially announced that Jon Gray will start Wednesday's National League Wild Card Game versus the Diamondbacks.

General manager Jeff Bridich had alluded to it, and the skipper made it official. It comes as no surprise, of course. Gray posted a 3.67 ERA and 112/30 K/BB ratio over 110 1/3 innings this season, including a 2.44 mark since August 1. The righty had a 26/4 K/BB ratio over 18 frames while holding a 3.50 ERA in his three outings versus the D'Backs in 2017.

Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said that while no decision has been made yet, Jon Gray "is certainly in major consideration" to start the National League Wild Card Game.

Bridich might not be ready to make it official yet, but it's almost definitely going to be Gray taking the ball Wednesday in Arizona. The big right-hander finished the season with a 3.67 ERA and 112/30 K/BB ratio over 110 1/3 innings, including a 2.44 mark since August 1. He also held a 3.50 ERA and 26/4 K/BB ratio over 18 frames in his three outings versus the D'Backs in 2017.

Jon Gray allowed three earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a win over the Marlins.

Gray gave up all three of those runs in the top of the fourth inning, on an RBI groundout from Derek Dietrich and a two-run homer by A.J. Ellis. He was otherwise sharp, striking out six batters while issuing zero walks. The 25-year-old right-hander is lined up to start for Colorado in next week's National League Wild Card Game, assuming the Rockies can hold off the Brewers and Cardinals in that race.

Jon Gray allowed one run over six innings and struck out eight to beat the Padres on Friday.

There was a couple of false starts in an abbreviated 2017 season, but Gray is looking like one of the NL's top 10 or so pitchers right now. Since the beginning of August, he's 6-2 with a 2.24 ERA and a 61/15 K/BB ratio in 60 1/3 innings.

Jon Gray was outstanding in a no-decision against the Padres on Sunday, striking out seven over five scoreless innings.

Gray allowed just two hits and a walk on the afternoon. The 25-year-old hurler now sports a 3.75 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 99/29 K/BB ratio across 98 1/3 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort in a rematch against these same Padres in San Diego on Sunday.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 08:39:00 PM

Jon Gray allowed two earned runs, seven hits and no walks with 10 strikeouts across seven innings in a victory Tuesday in Arizona.

Gray has won back-to-back starts for the first time since June 30-July 5. He now has quality starts in five of the past six outings, winning four of those outings. He'll look to keep it rolling Sunday in the series finale against the Padres at Coors Field.

Jon Gray pitched well in Thursday's victory over the Dodgers, allowing one run on four hits over six strong innings.

The right-hander fanned three while walking two on the night. The only damage against him came on an RBI double by Yasiel Puig in the fourth inning. It was the fourth straight quality start for Gray who now owns a 7-4 record, 4.07 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season. He'll look to keep on rolling when he takes on the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Tuesday.

Jon Gray was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Braves, racking up seven strikeouts over six shutout innings.

Gray scattered five hits and two walks on the impressive afternoon. He needed just 99 pitches to get through his six innings, throwing 64 of them for strikes. Gray now sits at 6-3 on the season with a 4.18 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 73/23 K/BB ratio over 75 1/3 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine performance when he does battle against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Jon Gray pitched well in a losing effort against the Royals on Tuesday, surrendering three runs (two earned) on six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Gray punched out six on the night while issuing only one walk. The Royals scored a run on a passed ball in the first inning, then tacked on a pair in the fourth that proved to be the difference. Now 5-3 on the season, Gray will carry a 4.54 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into Sunday's start against the Braves in Atlanta.
