Rockies' Jon Gray happy to have his velocity back
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Jon Gray is glad to have his velocity back this spring, according to MLB.com.

Gray dealt with shoulder fatigue last season, which limited his ability to get his fastball up into the triple-digits. That hasn't been a problem during camp. "This is the first time I felt this strong since early [Class A Advanced] Modesto," Gray said. 

Teammate Corey Dickerson came away impressed. "He was one of the best pitchers today because he was painting or barely missing -- one or two inches out of the zone -- and looked smooth, not nervous, but confident," Dickerson said.

Gray believes the added velocity should help his changeup this season. "I developed a really good changeup. It was my strikeout pitch of the year. I'll take that into this year with my fastball. It's going to be awesome."

Gray is expected to compete for a spot in the team's rotation this spring. Though he's likely to start in the minors, he should reach the majors at some point this year.

Jon Gray takes loss after working on perfect-game bid
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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

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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.
