Jon Gray surrendered five runs in 3 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Giants on Saturday.
He gave up a lot of contact in this one, allowing nine hits and a walk in the brief start. He can't blame the poor results on Coors Field as this was played at AT&T Park, one of the best pitchers' parks in baseball. Gray falls to 4-6 with a 5.34 ERA and 1.40 WHIP after 10 starts. May 19 - 7:36 PM

Jon Gray allowed six runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers.

It's an odd line for Gray, who also struck out 10 in the effort. Basically, if the Brewers put it in play they were likely getting on base, but they had some trouble putting it in play against the right-hander. It was an unusual turn for Gray as well after he'd allowed just one run in his previous three starts combined. Gray will take a 4.85 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into Saturday's contest against the Giants.
May 13 - 8:01 PM

Jon Gray allowed four hits with a walk and eight strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in a victory against the Angels on Tuesday.

Gray threw 61 of his 99 pitches for strikes in the quality start, lowering his ERA from 4.99 to 4.24. He has turned things around nicely with three consecutive victories and quality starts after sitting with a 1-4 record and 7.09 ERA on April 20. He'll try to keep things rolling in the right direction in his next scheduled start against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers.
May 9 - 1:59 AM

Jon Gray allowed just one run and three hits over seven innings in defeating the Cubs on Tuesday.

Gray was terrific with the wind blowing out at Wrigley. He immediately allowed a homer to Anthony Rizzo in the bottom of the first, but he gave up just two additional hits and walked one. He's lowered his ERA from 7.09 to 4.99 by allowing one run over his last two starts.
May 1 - 11:02 PM

Jon Gray hurled six shutout frames Wednesday in the Rockies’ win over the Padres.

He racked up 11 punch-outs while allowing just three hits (all singles) and one walk. The right-hander threw 65 of his season-high 101 pitches for strikes. The only time San Diego posed even a remote threat came in the fourth inning when Gray yielded a one-out walk to Carlos Asuaje followed by a single to Wil Myers. The victory ended a three-game slide for Gray. The big right-hander will take an ugly 5.79 ERA into his next start Tuesday against the Cubs.
Apr 25 - 7:30 PM

Jon Gray was touched up for seven runs - five earned - and eight hits with three walks and just one strikeout over five innings in a loss against the Rockies on Friday.

Gray had a nightmare outing, throwing just 47 of his 82 pitches for strikes to go along with two wild pitches. After an impressive scoreless outing over seven innings in San Diego on April 4 it has been all downhill. He is 0-3 with a 9.77 ERA across his past three outings. He'll try to bounce back on Tuesday in Wrigley Field against the Cubs in a rematch with Kyle Hendricks.
Apr 21 - 12:52 AM

Jon Gray struggled in a losing effort against the Nationals on Saturday, allowing five runs on eight hits across 5 2/3 innings.

The right-hander did manage to strike out six on the afternoon while issuing just one walk. He had allowed just one run through the first five frames, a solo homer to Matt Wieters, but the Nationals finally got to him and broke the game open with a four-spot in the sixth. Gray hasn't been good through his first four starts, registering a 6.23 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. He'll look for better when he takes on the Cubs at home on Friday.
Apr 14 - 4:00 PM

Jon Gray gave up seven runs in five innings in a loss to the Padres on Monday.

Gray gave up 10 hits, and he walked one while striking out six. If you take away the fourth inning, this was a solid outing for Gray, but you can't do that, so it wasn't. He gave up a three-run homer to Clayton Richard, of all people, and a Carlos Asuaje solo shot along with an RBI double by Austin Hedges in the fourth doomed the start. Gray has excellent stuff, but starts like this are always possible in Coors Field. He'll be back on the mound on Saturday against the tough Nationals' lineup.
Apr 9 - 11:36 PM

Jon Gray allowed just four hits with no walks and seven strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in a win Wednesday in San Diego.

Gray threw 63 of his 93 pitches for strikes in the quality start to even his early-season record at 1-1. The Sooner State native had success because he was able to cut his walks down from three to zero, working much deeper into the game than he did in his initial start last Thursday in Arizona. He'll make his first start of the season at Coors Field next time out on Monday in a rematch against the Padres to kick off a two-start work week.
Apr 5 - 2:30 AM

Jon Gray yielded three runs on six hits over four-plus innings in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Gray allowed three runs in the first inning -- two of which came home on a deep double by Jake Lamb -- but kept the scoreboard clean for the remainder of his time on the mound. Barely kept it clean. When Gray came out to start the fifth inning, he very nearly let the game get away from him, loading the bases with nobody out (single, walk, walk) before giving way to the bullpen. Chris Rusin worked some miracle magic to escape that Gray-created jam without surrendering a run, thus protecting the starter's ERA from incurring further damage. All told, Gray struck out four while walking three in what was an up-and-down start. He'll try for cleaner results in a road date with the Padres in his next scheduled outing. While Thursday's showing was not the sharpest, Gray posted a 3.67 ERA with a 112/30 K/BB ratio in 110 1/3 frames last season and has the stuff for strong numbers so long as he can stay healthy.
Mar 30 - 1:50 AM

Jon Gray will start Opening Day against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

It was an expected decision, but Rockies manager Bud Black finally made it official. He'll be followed by Tyler Anderson and German Marquez in the opening series. Gray, 26, posted a 3.67 ERA and 112/30 K/BB ratio over 110 1/3 innings last season. He's the rare Rockies starting pitcher who needs to be owned in all fantasy formats.
Mar 27 - 12:36 PM

Jon Gray threw three scoreless innings in a final spring tune-up Saturday against the Cubs.

Gray got the wrong half of the Cubs' split squad, facing a lineup of regulars like Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber, among others, and he navigated them with relative ease. The right-hander gave up just one hit and struck out two without issuing a walk. The expectation is that he'll next take the mound Thursday for the Rockies' season opener against the Diamondbacks.
Mar 24 - 11:39 PM

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.
