Rockies SP Jon Gray gets roughed up in start against Pirates


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray didn't enjoy a good outing on Friday against the Pirates.

Gray lasted just 4 1/3 innings after giving up three runs on seven hits. He did manage to strike out six batters while also allowing two walks.

Gray has a 6.00 ERA in 21 innings this year.


Rockies' Jon Gray gets no-decision in slugfest


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2015) Rockies starter Jon Gray had the worst start of his short career, Friday against the Mets.

In his fourth MLB start, Gray lasted just 1 2/3 innings. He gave up seven runs on eight hits. Gray's ERA jumped from 2.40 to 5.94.

Remarkably, Gray salvaged a no-decision, as the Rockies tied the score at eight in the fifth inning.


Rockies SP Jon Gray fine after shaky start against San Diego


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2015) Rockies starter Jon Gray barely had time to enjoy the fruits of his labor Saturday night against San Diego when his bullpen blew his victory for the second straight time.

Still, it was an encouraging performance from the hard-throwing rookie, who was limited to five innings and 69 pitches. He gave up just one run on four hits with no walks and five strikeouts.

The lone tally against Gray came on a Matt Kemp sacrifice fly that followed two hits to open the game. He retired 14 of the last 16 batters he faced.

Gray has yielded only four runs in 15 innings pitched over three starts, but remains without a victory or defeat.


Bullpen blows victory Monday for Rockies rookie SP Jon Gray


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2015) Rockies rookie pitcher Jon Gray is learning as a fledgling major leaguer. What he learned Monday night was that his bullpen is not very good.

Gray left after six innings of one-hit ball against the Mets in which he allowed one run with two walks and five strikeouts. He departed with a lead that the relievers turned into a no-decision and team defeat.

Only a Travis d'Arnaud home run in the second inning prevented Gray from hurling no-hit baseball in his second-ever start. He retired the Mets in order in the first, fourth and sixth.

Gray has yielded just three runs in 10 innings since his promotion, but has neither a loss nor a win on his ledger.


Rockies' Weiss says Jon Gray is on 'pretty restrictive' innings limit


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2015) Rockies rookie starting pitcher Jon Gray was pulled after four innings and 77 pitches during his MLB debut Tuesday against the Mariners. Manager Walt Weiss said Gray was pulled early in an attempt to protect his long-term health and not because of his performance.

“We have the big picture in mind, when talking about bumping innings from one year to the next,” Weiss said, per The Denver Post. “We don’t want to overwhelm him.”

The right-hander totaled a career-best 124 innings in 2014. Weiss said the Rockies will increase his workload by 20-25 percent this year. He tossed 114 innings in the minors this season before getting the call to the majors.

“It’s pretty restrictive,” Weiss said.


Jon Gray takes no-decision in MLB debut

Gray allowed five hits and walked two, while striking out four. 


Rockies confirm Jon Gray will make MLB debut Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray will make his MLB debut Tuesday against the Mariners, the Rockies confirmed Monday.

The 23-year-old Gray was the third overall selection in the 2013 MLB Draft. The hard-throwing right-hander is 6-6 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 21 outings (20 starts) at Triple-A this season. Although, his numbers are a little inflated due to a rocky start to the season. In his last 17 starts, he is 6-3 with a 3.17 ERA and .256 opponents' batting average.

Gray is 20-11 with a 3.82 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in three minor-league seasons. He is striking out 8.9 batters per nine innings.

He entered the season as a top-25 prospect, according to MLB.com, Baseball America and BaseballProspectus.com.

Manager Walt Weiss said Gray would be under an innings limit of no more than 30-35 innings for the rest of the season, reports The Denver Post.

"It's pretty restrictive," Weiss said. "Because one year to the next, you want a guy to stay within that 20-25 percent bump, especially for a young pitcher."

Although, his numbers are a little inflated due to a rocky start to the season. In his last 17 starts, he is 6-3 with a 3.17 ERA and .256 opponents' batting average.

Rockies SP Jon Gray biding his time in Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/16/2015) Rockies right-hander Jon Gray continues to build his case for a promotion to the big leagues. Gray, taken in the first round (3rd overall) by the Rockies in 2013, is 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA in his last seven starts for Triple-A Albuquerque.

But he also has 49 strikeouts (to 17 walks) in that span. And, if it weren't for a start in which he allowed six runs, that ERA would be down to 3.34.

Meanwhile, Rockies' starters have the second-highest ERA (5.00) and the fewest strikeouts (334) in the National League.


Report: Rockies pitching prospect Jon Gray could debut soon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2015) Rockies premier pitching prospect Jon Gray could be promoted soon from Triple-A Albuquerque, according to MLB.com.

The 23-year-old Gray continued to shine Tuesday night when he held Las Vegas scoreless for six innings with eight strikeouts to lower his ERA to 2.87 over the last 10 starts. He has fanned 39 in his last 28 1/3 innings.

"The reports are good," Walt Weiss said. "He's working on some things that we felt he needed to work on, and he's made a lot of progress. He's had a good month or more, and he's startng to make some noise."


Rockies GM: We will continue to exercise patience with Jon Gray


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) With the Rockies in last place in the NL West and their chances of making the playoffs fading, calling up starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray could be an option to provide a spark and keep them in the playoff hunt. It seems Rockies manager Walt Weiss would be in favor of it.

"At some point, especially if we're in striking distance, yeah, you want to use all your weapons, absolutely," Weiss said of bringing up Gray, per The Denver Post. "No, I don't think it's early."

However, general manager Jeff Bridich isn't as eager to bring up the 2013 first-round pick, who has has logged 252 innings in the minors.

"Jon Gray is doing a great job right now of learning lessons and evolving at the Triple-A level," Bridich said. "So there are things that he needs to do and will continue to do. And we'll continue to exercise patience with him."

The top-100 prospect is 3-5 with a 4.88 ERA in 16 outings (15 starts) at Triple-A this season. He is 3-2 with a 3.47 ERA in his last 12 games.


Rockies don't appear on the verge of bringing up Jon Gray


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2015) After a rough start to the season, Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray has settled in with Triple-A Albuquerque. Gray is 3-2 with a 2.72 ERA and .233 opponents' batting average in his last nine starts after opening the season 0-3 with a 10.70 ERA and .400 opponents' average in his first four starts.

Despite his recent success, it doesn't sound as though the Rockies are on the verge of promoting the top-100 prospect.

"There's still a bit left in development for him," Rockies manager Walt Weiss told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday. "The consistency is starting to show up."


Rockies' Jon Gray on rough start: 'I'm not panicking'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Rockies pitcher Jon Gray has posted a 9.13 ERA and 19:9 K:BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings over his first five appearaces (four starts) with Triple-A Albuquerque, but the top prospect says he's not in panic mode, the Denver Post reports.

"I just want people to see, to know, that I'm not panicking," Gray said. "There is a bigger picture here. There is a reason I have to go through some things."

Gray was solid in spring training but has yet to find his groove in the Pacific Coast League.

"Yeah, I think it's a little tougher than I thought it would be," Gray said. "I was facing major-leaguers during spring training and I didn't have this many problems. So, yeah, it's caught me off guard a little bit. But I have to accept that I still have things to learn."

Gray doesn't appear close to joining the major-league team, but the Rockies remain confident in his long-term outlook.

"The numbers don't tell the whole story," said Zach Wilson, the Rockies' senior director of player development. "I focus on the process more than I do the results right now, because I think the results are going to come. Right now, it's about the process."


Rockies SP prospect Gray struggles in season debut at Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray followed Jorge De La Rosa, who was on a rehab assignment, during the season opener for Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday. Although, Gray did not have a good outing.

Gray, who was in competition for a rotation spot this spring, took the loss after allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits and one walk in four relief innings. Gray, who entered the game in the fifth inning, allowed one home run and struck out two.

“I think that can be misleading,” Rockies starter Eddie Butler said of Gray's performance, per The Denver Post. “Coming into a game like that, when you are used to starting, can really throw you off.”


Rockies' Jon Gray fails to secure rotation spot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) Rockies pitcher Jon Gray will not break camp in the team's rotation after being reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.

Gray, one of the organizations top pitching prospects, posted a 5.93 ERA and 11:2 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings this spring. He'll likely make his major-league debut during the 2015 season after going 10-5 with a 3.91 ERA and 113:41 K:BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings with Double-A Tulsa last season.


Rockies SP Jon Gray gets back on track in minor-league game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Rockies pitcher Jon Gray bounced back in a minor-league game Thursday on the back fields at Salt River.

Gray allowed seven runs -- six earned -- in just two-thirds of an inning Saturday against the Cubs and reported a groin strain after that outing. He got back on track Thursday, allowing three runs on three hits with two walks while striking out four in four innings against the Diamondbacks.

"This is the best I've felt all spring," Gray said, per the Denver Post. "I got over it today. My problem is not attacking the zone no matter what the situation is. You have to be the aggressor no matter what."

Though he is still in camp, Gray is likely off the Opening Day radar, per the Post.


Rockies' Jon Gray dealing with 'mild' groin strain


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Rockies pitcher Jon Gray said Sunday he's dealing with a "mild" groin strain, the Denver Post reports.

"I’m just a little bit sore from everything, from playing and from lifting," Gray said. "It’s just a little bit of soreness in my groin. I’ll be fine. There will be some treatment."

Gray surrendered seven runs (six earned) in just two-thirds of an inning Saturday. However, he believes he's ready to make his major-league debut in regular-season play.

"If I pitch the way I can, I’m definitely ready, but there are still things I have to learn," Gray said. "It’s far from perfection. There are obviously going to be thing I pick up as I go, but there is a lot of stuff I need to work on as well."

Gray said that he anticipates making his next start.


Rockies pitching prospect Jon Gray struggles in rout


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Rockies top pitching prospect Jon Gray lasted just 2/3 of an inning Saturday against the Cubs, allowing seven runs, six earned, on four hits with two strikeouts.

Gray, who's ERA is now 5.93 this spring, is happy it happened now instead of during the regular season, according to the Denver Post.

"I would rather have a bad game the first outing, but it can't always be that way," Gray said. "This was unfortunate, but it's all about how you respond. I've responded well in the past, and I think I will be able to again."

Manager Walt Weiss still doesn't put all the blame on Gray for the struggles.

"We made it tough on him, and I think he made it tough on himself with a couple of bunts back to him," Weiss said. "We didn’t play well behind him. We looked up and he was 40 pitches in, and you don't want that in the first inning. So we got him out of there."


Bridich: Rockies' Gray's arbitration timeline won't impact decision


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said starting pitcher prospect Jonathan Gray's arbitration timeline will be a "non-factor" in deciding when the highly touted prospect will make his MLB debut, per The Denver Post.

"That is not part of our consideration," he said. "Jon has pitched very well, but there still are a lot of things to consider, but the decision will not be based on (arbitration)."

Gray, who is competing for the final spot in the rotation with Christian Bergman and Eddie Butler, is 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA in five spring outings (two starts). He has nine strikeouts to one walk in 13 innings.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rockies' Gray on making MLB debut: I want it to happen at the right time


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Rockies starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray is making a strong push for the final spot in the team's rotation, posting a 2.08 ERA in five spring outings (two starts). However, if Gray is asked to spend more time in the minors, he appears to be OK with that decision.

"I want everything to happen at the right time," Gray said, per The Denver Post. "I wouldn't like to be the guy who gets rushed up and does bad and gets sent down. I'm really close to being ready. And maybe these last couple outings can decide if I'm ready."


Rockies pitcher Jon Gray making case for roster spot


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Rockies pitcher Jon Gray tossed four scoreless innings Monday against the Brewers, topping out on his fastball at 97 mph, according to the Denver Post.

Gray allowed two hits with two strikeouts. Of the 44 pitches he threw, 33 went for strikes.

With a roster spot open after the team cut pitcher Jhoulys Chacin, Gray may slide into a rotation role, but he isn't worrying about that just yet.

"It's something I have thought about, but I didn't let it eat me up," Gray said. "The only thing I can control is going out there and pitching."


Rockies P Jon Gray to make start Monday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Rockies' Jon Gray overcomes rough first inning Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Rockies pitcher Jon Gray surrendered three earned runs -- all in the first inning -- in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Diamondbacks, giving up five hits and striking out two in three innings of work.

Gray entered the game with six scoreless innings in two appearances but took an inning to settle down Wednesday.

"I was really feeling too good -- it was a night game, I slept in, all that stuff," Gray said after the outing, per MLB.com. "All I wanted to do was go. Everything that I had been working on, like staying direct at the target … I started flying open, not staying over the rubber. Everything stayed up, belt-high. It took so long to be able to settle down."

Gray, the team's top-rated prospect, went 10-5 with a 3.91 ERA and 113:41 K:BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings over 24 starts with Double-A Tulsa last season.

"If I was in the same spot last year, it would have gone south," Gray said. "I should have taken care of the first inning. But I'm just glad I made some changes out there, positive."


Rockies pitcher Jon Gray throws two scoreless innings Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Rockies pitcher Jon Gray was able to work two scoreless innings in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Diamondbacks. The prospect was able to get something to work off of as well: a strikeout on slugger Paul Goldschmidt.

Gray burned a 97 mph fastball past the power hitter and felt great afterward.

"I was saving that one for him," Gray said. "I knew I was going to need it. I was thinking 'grip and rip' on this one."

Gray also got back to what he knew best in his outing.

"I kind of went to the basics and focused on the target," Gray said. "At first, I was seeing the batter, the catcher, the plate, everything. But after that, I focused on the glove, got my deep breath in and threw."
