Rockies right-handed pitching prospect Jon Gray allowed five hits and three runs over two innings, striking out two batters for Double-A Tulsa on Wednesday.
Gray has yet to put together a streak of good starts, and needed 68 pitches to get through two innings against the Arkansas Travelers, a team bereft of potential impact prospects. He has frontline potential, but there were rumors that Gray would be in Colorado before July and he has instead remained in Double-A. Aug 21 - 10:27 AM

Rockies right-handed pitching prospect Jon Gray allowed two hits, three walks, and one run over seven innings, striking out six for Double-A Tulsa on Saturday.

Gray's up and down season continues, as his solid outing was preceded by two clunkers. He threw 61 of 93 (65.6 percent) of his pitches for strikes, shutting down a solid Northwest Arkansas lineup that included prospects Jorge Bonifacio (0-for-2, BB), Cheslor Cuthbert (1-for-3, 1B, K), Orlando Calixte (0-for-1, Sac, BB), and Hunter Dozier (0-for-3, K).
Aug 3 - 12:45 PM

Rockies prospect right-hander Jonathan Gray threw 5 2/3 shutout innings on Wednesday, allowing one hit and two walks while striking out seven batters for Double-A Tulsa.

Gray's last two starts have been two of his best, holding opposing batters to a .083/.171/.111 line while striking out 12 in 11 2/3 innings. For the season, opposing batters have hit .235/.295/.370 against him, and he has put up a 3.54 ERA, 1.149 WHIP, and 8.4 K/9. He could see time in Colorado later this season.
Jul 17 - 8:29 AM

Rockies right-handed pitching prospect Jonathan Gray threw five shutout innings on Sunday, striking out five while scattering five singles and two walks.

Gray threw 94 pitches, a season high due to pitch counts. He has not allowed a run in his last two outings, both of which were against the Springfield Cardinals. Gray is next in line to be called up to the major leagues, though the success of Tyler Matzek may buy some time until Matzek has his seemingly inevitable six hit, six walk performance.
Jun 16 - 7:34 AM

Rockies prospect RHP Jon Gray dominated on Tuesday with five no-hit innings for Double-A Tulsa.

He struck out seven batters and issued three walks in the outing. Gray, the 2013 No. 3 overall draft pick, had struggled in his previous two starts, allowing a combined 11 earned runs on 13 hits and five walks in 10 2/3 innings. So the fact he was able to bounce back with his best start of the season is a very good sign. Overall, the 22-year-old right-hander owns a 3.66 ERA and 56-16 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 64 innings (12 starts). Gray is seemingly next in line for a call-up, as the Rockies already have promoted two pitching prospects (Eddie Butler, Christian Bergman) in less than a week, and 2009 first-rounder Tyler Matzek is set to make his major league debut Wednesday against the Braves.
Jun 11 - 6:56 PM

Rockies right-handed pitching prospect Jonathan Gray struck out six batters in 5 1/3 innings on Monday, allowing four hits and one walk for Double-A Tulsa.

Over his past three starts, Gray has fanned 19 in 17 innings and opposing batters are hitting .155/.197/.190 off him. It appears that the real Jonathan Gray has stood up, and he could be carving up hitters for Triple-A Colorado Springs or the Rockies soon enough.
Apr 29 - 10:09 AM

Rockies prospect Jonathan Gray struck out eight in six innings Wednesday, allowing just three hits (all singles) and one run for Double-A Tulsa.

After a poor first two starts of the season, Gray has struck out 13 batters and allowed only seven base runners over 11 2/3 innings. He has an inflated 4.91 ERA for the season, but opposing batters have a .250/.297/.382 line against him. Gray remains on track to make his major league debut this season and could be a top 30 pitcher in 2015.
Apr 24 - 10:20 AM

Rockies right-handed prospect Jonathan Gray allowed six runs on seven hits over 2/3 inning on Friday night for Double-A Tulsa.

After striking out 51 in 37 1/3 innings in 2013, Gray has struggled mightily in his first two starts, allowing 12 hits (including two doubles and two home runs) and ten runs (nine earned) while hitting two batters. The third overall pick in the 2013 draft, the Rockies hoped that Gray would be pitching in Colorado by the end of 2014.
Apr 12 - 12:00 PM

Rockies prospect right-hander Jonathan Gray will begin the season with Double-A Tulsa.

The Drillers will open the season on Thursday, April 3. If Gray continues to dominate like he did in spring training and in 2013, he could be pitching in Denver by the end of the season. Armed with a four-seam fastball, slider, and change-up, Gray could rack up elite strikeout totals as soon as he reaches the major leagues.

Rockies reassigned RHP Jonathan Gray to minor league camp.

The third overall selection from the 2013 draft, Gray is expected to make quick work of the minor leagues and reach the Rockies rotation very soon. The 22-year-old appeared in three Cactus League contests, posting a 5.40 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio in 6 2/3 innings.
Mar 15 - 2:05 PM

Rockies prospect RHP Jonathan Gray tossed two scoreless innings on Monday in his spring debut, allowing two hits with a walk and pair of strikeouts.

The No. 3 overall selection in the 2013 draft, Gray, 22, averaged 93.3 mph with his fastball in the outing (according to BrooksBaseball.net) and topped out at 95.8. The right-hander was impressive last summer after signing, registering a 1.93 ERA and 51-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 37 1/3 innings across two levels. Gray was especially dominant at High-A Modesto to conclude his pro debut, posting a 4-0 record, 0.75 ERA and 36-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 24 innings (five starts). He's highly unlikely to begin 2014 in the major leagues, but Gray's power arsenal and ability to miss bats should have him in Colorado by season's end.
Mar 4 - 12:22 PM

Rockies prospect RHP Jonathan Gray allowed two hits with eight strikeouts over five scoreless innings on Sunday for High-A Modesto.

The outing was easily Gray's best since turning pro earlier this summer. The No. 3 overall selection this past June, Gray was inconsistent over four starts in the Pioneer League, but has been dominant following a promotion to Modesto in early August. In five starts at the more advanced level, the right-hander has registered a 0.75 ERA, 0.67 WHIP and 36/6 K/BB ratio in 24 innings. Between both levels, he's posted a stellar 51/8 K/BB ratio in 37 1/3 innings. Gray should continue to move quickly through the Rockies' system and is likely to debut during the 2014 season.

Rockies prospect RHP Jonathan Gray was dominant in his debut with High-A Modesto on Friday, allowing just two hits with seven strikeouts over five scoreless innings.

Gray, the No. 3 overall selection in the 2013 draft, was promoted to Modesto after registering a 4.05 ERA and 15/2 K/BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings with the Rockies' affiliate in the rookie-level Pioneer League. The 21-year-old right-hander owns a 2.95 overall ERA and 22/2 K/BB overall ratio so far in 18 1/3 professional innings. He's expected to arrive in the major leagues at some point during the 2014 season.
Tue, Aug 6, 2013 04:32:00 PM

Rockies prospect RHP Jonathan Gray allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits over three innings in his professional debut for Rookie-level Grand Junction.

Selected by the Rockies with the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, Gray recorded only one strikeout in the outing, which was his first since pitching for the University of Oklahoma in the NCAA Super Regionals on June 7. While it was a disappointing debut, the 21-year-old was on a three-inning/50-pitch limit and still managed to finish the start. Gray will be stretched out to 60 or 65 pitches in his second start early next week.

Rockies agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Jonathan Gray.

Gray will receive $4.8 million, which is well under the slot value for the No. 3 overall pick of $5.6264 million. A hard-thrower, Gray was under consideration for the first overall pick, so the Rockies are certainly happy he fell to them. He could be a quick-mover.
