  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Continues scoreless spring

    Gray allowed two hits and one walk while striking out four over four scoreless innings in Thursday's spring start against the Dodgers.

    After being scratched from his second scheduled Cactus League start due to back tightness, Gray has put together seven scoreless innings over two starts. He's yet to allow a run over nine spring innings. The 31-year-old right-hander will not be tasked with being the team's ace, as he was in 2022, which could work in his favor.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Looks fine after back tightness

    Gray allowed one hit and struck out one over three scoreless innings in Wednesday's spring start against the Diamondbacks.

    Gray made his second Cactus League start and first since being scratched last Friday due to the tightness in his back. The right-hander was pleased with the outing but noted areas of improvement. "I still feel really slow to the plate and working on that," Gray told Jesus Cano of "But some things were good. I thought the fastball was doing pretty well. I'm mixing up a changeup for now, but the sweeping slider, there's still some stuff to manipulate with it." With three weeks left before Opening Day, Gray should get at least three more starts to work on his form.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Set to return Wednesday

    Gray (back) will start for the Rangers on Wednesday in their Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Gray had to be scratched from his last start because of back tightness, but he threw a bullpen session Sunday without issue and is ready to test things out in a game setting. Durability has been a question at times for Gray, including in his first season with the Rangers in 2022, when he made just 24 starts. He's a pretty good bet to be useful for fantasy managers when on the mound, though.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Throws bullpen

    Gray (back) threw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Gray reported immediate relief after undergoing treatment Saturday for back tightness that caused him to get scratched from his scheduled start Friday. The right-hander believes he can throw in a game as early as Wednesday.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Feels normal

    Gray (back) said he "feels normal" after receiving treatment Saturday.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Scratched with back tightness

    Gray is dealing with back tightness and was scratched from his scheduled start Friday versus the Giants.

    Gray was set to make his second start of spring training, but he will now look to rest his back and be ready for his next opportunity. In his place, left-hander Taylor Hearn will take over on the mound and face San Francisco.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Makes scoreless spring appearance

    Gray allowed one hit over two scoreless innings in Sunday's spring game against the Guardians.

    Gray was pleased with the results but told Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News that he felt "out of whack" on the mound, which can be normal for starters in their first spring appearances. The right-hander served as Texas' ace in 2022, but the addition of Jacob deGrom, Nathan Eovaldi and Andrew Heaney pushes him further down the rotation. Like all pitchers, health is imperative for the 31-year-old Gray, who's thrown more than 150 innings twice and never more than 200, during his career. He had a 3.96 ERA and 134 strikeouts over 127.1 innings last season.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Wraps up year with quality start

    Gray didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Yankees, giving up three runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    The right-hander battled injuries in his first season with Texas and tossed only 127.1 innings, but Gray was effective when he was on the mound. Tuesday's quality start was his eighth of the year, and he'll head into the winter with a 3.96 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 134:39 K:BB. Finally free of Coors Field, the 30-year-old flashed his upside this season, and he'll look to put together a healthier campaign in 2023.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Tagged for six runs

    Gray allowed six runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Thursday.

    Gray was back to struggling Thursday after throwing five innings of one-hit ball in his previous start. The 30-year-old gave up two home runs to Mitch Haniger and another long ball to Jarred Kelenic, all of which plated two runs. Gray's ERA spiked to 3.93 with a 1.15 WHIP and 131:39 K:BB through 121.1 innings across 23 starts this year. The right-hander is expected to end his season with a home start versus the Yankees next week.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Allows just one hit

    Gray allowed a single unearned run in five innings Friday against the Guardians, striking out just one batter but allowing just one hit, one walk and one hit-by-pitch. He did not factor into the decision.

    Gray did a good job keeping the bases clean Friday, with the Guardians' only run under his watch coming on a throwing error during a stolen base attempt. The Guardians would score five runs off Taylor Hearn immediately after Gray left the game, however, denying the veteran righty the chance to secure a win. Gray tentatively lines up to face the Mariners in Seattle and the Yankees at home to close the year.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Takes seventh loss

    Gray (7-7) allowed two earned runs on two hits and one walk while striking out four over 4.1 innings to take the loss in a 5-1 defeat against the Rays on Saturday.

    Gray was making his second start since coming off the IL with an oblique strain and threw only 67 pitches. The start could be taken as a step in the right direction for Gray, who threw 45 pitches his last time out Sept 13. He has an excellent 125 strikeouts in 111.1 innings pitched this season, so he could help fantasy managers in that category as he goes deeper into games down the stretch. Gray is tentatively expected to make his next start against the Guardians.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Activated prior to start

    Gray (oblique) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Monday's start against the Marlins.

    Gray has been sidelined since the start of August due to an oblique injury, but he'll return to the mound as the starter during the second game of Monday's doubleheader against Miami. The right-hander didn't require a rehab assignment prior to being activated, so it's unclear whether he'll face any workload restrictions during Monday's nightcap.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Set to return Monday

    Gray (oblique) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Gray's oblique injury has sidelined him since the first day of August, but he looks like he's ready to get back on the bump. The right-hander didn't head out on a rehab assignment, so it's unclear what type of workload he will be able to handle in his first game back.

    Gray (oblique) will throw live batting practice Wednesday and it's possible he won't need a rehab assignment before rejoining the big-league rotation, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    The Rangers will evaluate Gray after Wednesday's live batting practice session to determine the next step. It's encouraging to hear Gray is on track to return in time to make a few more starts this season if he can avoid setbacks.
