SP - COL - IL10
Colorado Rockies pitcher Jon Gray (elbow) threw a bullpen session on Thursday.
Gray reportedly was hoping to throw a simulated game on Thursday but ended up throwing a bullpen session. He needs to improve the timing of his delivery and hopes to face live batters soon. Gray is making progress in his recovery but it remains unclear when the right-hander will return to the Rockies rotation.
Rockies pitcher Jon Gray (elbow) played catch from 90-100 feet on Thursday.
Gray was pulled from his previous start with a right flexor strain. He will ramp up the intensity of his throwing program this weekend, per Rockies manager Bud Black. Gray is trending in the right direction and could come off the injured list when first eligible.
Rockies RHP Jon Gray (elbow) is scheduled to resume playing catch on Wednesday.
Gray is currently on the IL but a recent MRI revealed no structural damage in his elbow. This likely won't be an extended absence for the Colorado right-hander.
The Rockies placed RHP Jon Gray on the 10-day IL with a flexor strain in his throwing elbow.
Gray left Friday's start against the A's with the injury. Chi Chi Gonzalez will take his spot in the rotation for the time being.
Rockies manager Bud Black announced that starting pitcher Jon Gray is dealing with "general right elbow soreness in the area of the forearm," per Nick Groke of The Athletic. The right-hander lasted just 2.1 innings on Friday, allowing five runs on four hits and a pair of walks. He gave up two homers in effort and his velocity was noticeably down.
It will be worth monitoring the severity of this injury and whether it necessitates a trip to the injured list. Gray certainly didn't look right in his outing on Friday. He's now 4-6 through 12 starts with a 4.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and .229 OBA. He's walked 27 batters and struck out 50 this year.
