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. Aug 24 - 12:23 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.
Aug 17 - 8:06 PM

Jon Gray took the loss Friday after being touched up for seven runs (six earned) over 4 1/3 innings.

And it wasn’t even a start at Coors Field. Gray gave up six hits and walked four, with the big blow coming on a go-ahead grand slam off the bat of Ryan Howard in the in the fifth inning. Gray fell to 8-6 on the year and saw his ERA jump from 4.26 to 4.55 on the year. He’ll try to bounce back against the Nationals next week in another road outing.
Aug 13 - 12:21 AM

Jon Gray was clobbered in Sunday's loss to the Marlins, allowing eight runs on 10 hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander walked one and struck out three on the afternoon. The Marlins jumped on him early with four runs in the first inning, then tacked on another four to chase him in the fourth, capped off by a two-run homer from Giancarlo Stanton. Even with as good as his stuff is, he'll be prone to the occasional blow-up at Coors Field. Gray will bring a 4.26 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into Friday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
Aug 7 - 7:50 PM

Jon Gray threw five scoreless innings in a win over the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Gray struck out six while yielded just two hits and two walks, but efficiency eluded him, as he needed 96 pitches to do it. The win was the third in a row for the 24-year-old, who is 8-4 with a 3.77 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 120/37 K/BB ratio over 114 2/3 innings this year. The Rockies have made it their mission to find pitchers who are more or less Coors-proof, and it seems as though they struck gold with their former first-round draft pick. Gray will next face the Marlins on Sunday.
Aug 3 - 12:50 AM

Jon Gray led the Rockies to a 3-1 victory on Wednesday by holding the Orioles to one run in seven innings, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning three.

His record improves to 7-4 with a 3.94 ERA. His owners will happily take the win without complaining about the lack of strikeouts today. For the season Gray has averaged more than a strikeout per inning (114 whiffs in 109 2/3 innings) but he wasn't missing bats in this game. He lines up for two starts at home next week, which presents his owners with a dilemma if they fear Coors Field.

Jul 23 - 12:17 AM

Jon Gray scooped up a no-decision against the Braves on Sunday, tossing seven shutout innings.

For the season, Gray holds a 4.33 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 103/32 K/BB ratio over 95 2/3 innings. A home rematch with these same Braves shows next on his schedule.
Jul 17 - 5:40 PM

Jul 9 - 1:14 AM

Gray bounced back nicely through, firing four scoreless innings to end his day. He'll bring a 4.81 ERA and 87/27 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Phillies at home on Friday.
Jul 3 - 7:04 PM

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

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.
Jun 24 - 5:48 PM

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.
