Gray (3-6) picked up the win Friday, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over six innings in a 6-2 victory over the Mets. He struck out seven. The right-hander celebrated not being dealt at the trade deadline by delivering his fifth quality start of the season, and only his second since the beginning of June. Gray stumbled into the second half before rebounding Friday, coughing up 13 runs over eight innings in his first two starts after the All-Star break, and he'll carry a 4.26 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 96:29 K:BB through 76 innings into his next outing.
Gray (2-6) allowed eight runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out three in 3.1 innings, taking the loss versus St. Louis on Sunday. The right-hander yielded three home runs in the contest, and he was relieved by Edgar Garcia after Dylan Carlson's two-run blast in the fourth inning. Both of Gray's starts since the All-Star break have been poor, and Sunday's effort ended a streak of four outings without allowing a homer. The 31-year-old has a 4.50 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 89:28 K:BB through 70 innings this season. He lines up for a road start versus the Mets during next weekend's series.
Gray (2-5) couldn't escape the fifth inning against the Brewers on Sunday in the course of getting the loss, allowing five runs on six hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out six. Gray very nearly got out of trouble in the fifth, but he then allowed a two-out, bases loaded single to Tyrone Taylor, and then a two-run triple to Jackie Bradley Jr., sucking all the air out of the balloon for the Reds. The Reds will hope Gray can help them recapture their momentum they had prior to the All-Star break with his next start against the Cardinals.
Gray (ribs) was activated ahead of his start Sunday against the Brewers. He spent the minimum amount of time on the injured list with a rib cage strain. Gray has a 2.10 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 33 strikeouts over his last five starts (25.2 innings). He'll pitch opposite Corbin Burnes.
Gray (ribs) is slated to start Sunday's game against the Brewers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Gray landed on the injured list with a strain in his rib cage July 8, but he should be able to return after spending the minimum amount of time on the shelf. The right-hander has posted a 2.10 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 25.2 innings across his last five starts, and it's unlikely that he'll face significant workload restrictions following the brief absence.
