Jon Gray takes loss after working on perfect-game bid


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray took a perfect game into the sixth inning Wednesday for Double-A Tulsa, but ended up losing a close game, as Tulsa fell 1-0. 

Gray started fast by striking out five of the first six batters he faced. He retired 17 straight batters before Arkansas designated hitter Andy Workman singled in the sixth inning. He would eventually score the decisive run, sending Gray to the loss. 

The right-hander allowed one run on three hits and no walks in six innings. He struck out a season-high eight batters.

Gray has allowed just one run in his last two starts (11 2/3 innings) after yielding 10 runs (nine earned) in his first two starts (6 2/3 innings).

"[Ground balls were] a little bit of a priority in college," Gray told MLB.com. "But being with the Rockies, you hear a lot about playing in Coors Field, and that's one of the things -- keeping the ball down. It's definitely something I've been working on for a while now. I think (Wednesday), I really took a good step in that direction."


Jon Gray back on track at Double-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) After two rough starts to open the season at Double-A Tulsa, Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray got back on track in his last start. Gray tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing two hits and two walks, while striking out five.

The 2013 first-round pick (No. 3) is 1-1 with a 6.57 ERA and 1.38 WHIP through three starts. The numbers are elevated because Gray allowed six runs on seven hits in two-thirds inning during his second start.

Gray has struck out 11 batters in 12 1/3 innings, while allowing three walks and two home runs.


Rockies send down pair of top pitching prospects


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2014) The Rockies have optioned right-handers Jonathan Gray and Eddie Butler to minor-league camp Saturday. Butler and Gray are considered the Rockies' top pitching prospects.

Jon Gray throws two scoreless innings in spring debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Rockies pitching prospect Jon Gray allowed two hits and one walk while striking out two in two scoreless innings in his team's 8-1 loss to the Mariners Monday.

Gray was rated a top-15 prospect by both Baseball America and MLB.com this offseason and could make his MLB debut later this year if he progresses quickly. He went 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA in nine starts between two levels last season.


Rockies' SP prospects could be worth a gamble on Draft Day


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2014) In case you missed it, Rockies chairman and CEO Dick Monfort was very forthcoming with information when he was chatting with fans on Twitter Tuesday. One of the more interesting tidbits was his take on pitching prospects Jonathan Gray and Eddie Butler both being in the majors by "late summer."

Butler is not really surprising. He progressed all the way to Double-A last season and has been dominant since being a 2012 first-round pick. Butler is 16-6 with a 1.90 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 41 career appearances (40 starts). Butler will likely open the year at Triple-A, but it wouldn't be surprising if he's an early recall due to injury or the ineffectiveness of whoever wins the final spot in the team's rotation this spring. Butler is definitely an impact arm and can certainly be considered a draft-and-stash option in deeper formats.

However, the mention of Gray is intriguing. The 2013 first-round pick (third overall) was pretty stellar after turning pro, going 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in nine starts between Rookie League and Class A last year. He even had a 51-to-8 strikeout to walk ratio in 37 1/3 innings.

You never know what's truly going to impact a team's decision to bring up a prospect, but don't be surprised if Gray does debut this season. Stephen Strasburg needed just 11 minor-league starts before he got the call to the majors and he's done pretty well since debuting. Gray has the same high-end potential and could easily breeze through the minors. 

If you asked me last week if Gray was worth drafting, I would say no way. But after hearing Monfort's comments, if you can afford a bench spot in deeper formats, Gray might just be worth the gamble.


Jonathan Gray, Eddie Butler could 'potentially' debut late summer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Rockies chairman and CEO Dick Monfort was asked on Twitter Tuesday his thoughts on how soon Colorado fans can expect to see starting pitcher prospects Jonathan Gray and Eddie Butler in the majors. 

Monfort responded: "Gray and Butler could potentially be pitching at Coors Field by late summer."


Rockies will have 24 non-roster invites in spring camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The six catchers are Ryan Casteel, Dustin Garneau, Matt McBride, Michael McKenry, Tom Murphy and Jackson Williams.

Gray, Butler and Murphy are among the team's top prospects.


Jonathan Gray earns first pro win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2013) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jonathan Gray was named California League pitcher of the week Monday for the week ending Aug. 4.

The 2013 first-round pick (third overall) was dominant in his first start for Class A Modesto. Gray earned his first pro win Friday, while striking out seven in five scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and issued no walks.


Jonathan Gray earns quick promotion in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2013) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jonathan Gray, who was selected third overall in June's MLB draft, said he's been promoted from Grand Junction (rookie) to Class A Modesto, according to The Denver Post.

Gray made four starts for Grand Junction, totaling a 4.05 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 13 1/3 innings. He struck out 15 and walked two.


Jonathan Gray calls rough debut 'blessing'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2013) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jonathan Gray, the third overall pick in June's MLB draft out of Oklahoma, said it was a "blessing" to get hit hard in his pro debut July 10 for Grand Junction (rookie).

"I wasn't really used to getting knocked around the yard like that," Gray told MLB.com. "But I'm glad it happened, and I'm glad it happened in my first outing. That will make you learn better than anything. I think it was really a blessing in disguise."

Gray learned from his mistakes after allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits in three innings in his debut. He bounced back in his second start to allow one run on one hit while striking out four in 2 2/3 innings.

"You can't really overpower guys a lot of times like you can in college baseball," he said. "These guys can hit fastballs, so location is really important."


Jonathan Gray improves in second pro start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2013) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jonathan Gray was much improved in his second start for Grand Junction (rookie). After being tagged for four runs (three earned) on seven hits in three innings in his pro debut July 10, the hard-throwing right-hander bounced back to allow one run on one hits in 2 2/3 innings Monday.

Gray also struck out four batters Monday after striking out one in his debut. Gray, who was the third overall pick in June's MLB draft, has a 6.35 ERA and .320 opponents' batting average through his first two starts.


Jonathan Gray has less-than-stellar debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2013) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jonathan Gray, who was the No. 3 overall pick in June's MLB Draft, had a rough debut for Grand Junction (rookie) Wednesday. The hard-throwing right-hander was tagged for four runs (three earned) on seven hits in three innings, while recording one strikeout.

"Not very good, not very good at all," Gray said, per The Denver Post. "It took me a little while to adjust to everything. It was the first time I've thrown off that mound and I had to adjust to it. It was a little flatter than I thought it was going to be. I was leaving everything up in the zone. It was the third inning before I started figuring it out. By that time, I had to be taken out of the game. I'm disappointed I didn't figure it out any earlier."

Gray was on a three-inning, 45-pitch limit Wednesday. Gray has been told to concentrate on throwing his fastball and changeup, and only sparingly use his slider.

"It was a learning experience," he said. "It's only going to get better now ... I'm a competitor. I hate losing. I don't like doing bad. I have to see it as a way to get better."
