Rangers' Jon Gray: Not locked in for Game 4 yet
Updating a previous item, Gray is not yet locked in to start Game 4 of the World Series on Tuesday in Arizona, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported earlier Monday that it would be Gray taking the ball for the Rangers in Game 4. While the right-hander appears to be the most likely candidate to start Tuesday, manager Bruce Bochy noted that he would not be holding Gray or anyone else back from pitching in Game 3, if needed. Bochy should officially announce a Game 4 starter after the conclusion of Game 3.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jon Gray: Gets nod for Game 4 start
Gray will start Tuesday in Game 4 of the World Series in Arizona, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Gray hasn't started a game since Sept. 25, as he ended the regular season on the injured list with a forearm issue and has been used in relief in his two postseason appearances. The 31-year-old looked very sharp out of the bullpen in Game 1, striking out four over 1.2 scoreless innings. He threw 26 pitches in that appearance and will be going on three days' rest Tuesday, so Gray will not be ready for a full workload. The Diamondbacks are going with a bullpen game Tuesday....

Rangers' Jon Gray: Makes ALCS roster
Gray (forearm) is on the Rangers' roster for the American League Championship Series against the Astros, which begins Sunday in Houston, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The right-hander landed on the 15-day injured list with lower forearm tightness after his Sept. 25 start against the Angels, and he'll join the playoff roster after the Rangers advanced through the wild-card series and the ALDS. Max Scherzer (shoulder) also made the roster, potentially lining up Gray to start Game 4 on Thursday since Jordan Montgomery and Nathan Eovaldi are pitching the first two games of the series....

Rangers' Jon Gray: On track for ALCS
Gray (forearm) is on track to rejoin the rotation if the Rangers advance to the ALCS, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Gray landed on the 15-day injured list just before the end of the regular season due to tightness in his lower right forearm, but he has apparently been trending well with his side work. Max Scherzer (shoulder) could also potentially become an option for Texas in the best-of-seven ALCS, rounding out a four-starter mix that already includes Jordan Montgomery and Nathan Eovaldi. If at least Gray is able to return, Andrew Heaney and Dane Dunning would most likely operate in bulk relief.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jon Gray: Lands on 15-day IL
The Rangers placed Gray on the 15-day injured list Friday, retroactive to Sept. 28, with right lower forearm tightness.
Gray made an early exit from his last start Monday against the Angels due to right wrist/forearm tightness and can now be ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. He could potentially return in the postseason if the Rangers are able to stage a deep run. The 31-year-old right-hander finishes with a 9-8 record, 4.12 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 142:54 K:BB in 29 starts covering 157.1 innings.... See More ... See Less

Gray (wrist) underwent imaging Tuesday and is awaiting the results, MLB.com reports.

Rangers' Jon Gray: Pulled with injury
Gray (9-8) was removed from Monday's start against the Angels due to right wrist tightness, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. He allowed one run on five hits while striking out seven over six innings before leaving the game.

Rangers' Jon Gray: Another short outing
Gray did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing four runs on four hits and a walk over 2.1 innings against the Red Sox. He struck out one.
Gray found himself in an early 3-0 hole after surrendering a first-inning homer to Adam Duvall before Bobby Dalbec tacked on a fourth run with a solo blast in the second. While the Rangers would rally to win thanks to a 15-run outburst, it was another disappointing outing for Gray, who's failed to make it through four innings in any of his last three starts, allowing eight runs in that span (8.2 innings). Overall, the 31-year-old Gray is 8-8 with a 4.22 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 135:54 K:BB through 28 starts (151.1 innings) this season. He'll look to get on track in his next outing, currently scheduled for early next week against the Angels.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jon Gray: Lackluster in defeat
Gray (8-8) took the loss Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.2 innings against the Guardians. He struck out three.
While it was not his best effort, Gray's loss also owes something to Andrew Heaney, who got charged with six runs over two innings after relieving the right-hander, and the Rangers offense, which was stymied until the ninth. Gray has allowed at least three earned runs in his last five starts and seven of his last nine for an ERA of 5.72 over that stretch. With the Rangers in a dog fight to win the AL West or at least secure a wild-card spot, Gray will look to right the ship in his next start, tentatively scheduled to take place mid-week at home against Boston....

Rangers' Jon Gray: Short start Sunday
Gray allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Athletics on Sunday.
Gray got into trouble in the third inning, and Andrew Heaney was brought in to finish off the frame. This was the third time this season Gray has failed to complete three innings, though he's escaped with a no-decision in each of those outings. The right-hander has allowed 16 runs (15 earned) across 23.2 innings during his five-start winless streak. He's now at a 3.96 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 131:51 K:BB through 145.1 innings over 26 starts this year. Gray is tentatively projected to make his next start on the road in Cleveland.... See More ...

Rangers' Jon Gray: Strikes out eight in five innings
Gray did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on seven hits and four walks over five innings against Minnesota. He struck out eight.
Gray kept the Twins off the board through four, but a three-run homer by Royce Lewis tied the game for the Twins and cost Gray a chance to pick up his ninth win. The eight strikeouts were a silver lining in an otherwise mediocre outing that saw him allow 11 Twins to reach base. Gray has now struck out 22 batters over his last 15 innings but has a 6.60 ERA during that span. His next start is scheduled to take place next weekend in what looks to be a much softer matchup at home against Oakland.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jon Gray: Strikes out nine in no-decision
Gray did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over six innings against the Mets. He struck out nine.
It was a strong bounce-back performance from Gray after he surrendered five runs in a loss to Arizona in his last outing. His nine strikeouts were the most he's had in a game since June 7. Overall, Gray has an 8-7 record with a 3.79 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 120:45 K:BB across 24 starts (137.2 innings) this season. He's currently lined up for a home matchup with the Twins this weekend in his next start.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jon Gray: Struggles in short start
Gray (8-7) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out five over four innings to take the loss Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.
Gray needed 83 pitches (52 strikes) to get through four frames in the poor outing. He'd allowed just one run over his last two starts combined, but he'd given up 11 runs across 10.1 innings in the two outings before that. Overall, Gray has a 3.69 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 111:44 K:BB through 131.2 innings across 23 starts this year. He's lacked consistency over the last couple of months, but he'll aim to get back on track on the road versus the Mets next week.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jon Gray: Takes tough-luck loss Wednesday
Gray dropped to 8-6 on the season in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Angels after allowing one run on six hits and two walks while striking out four batters across seven innings.
Gray gave up a solo homer to Shohei Ohtani in the first inning but kept Los Angeles off the scoreboard for the rest of his outing. However, Reid Detmers and a pair of Angels relievers shut down the Rangers' potent offense, saddling Gray with first loss since July 5. Despite the defeat, the right-hander picked up his second straight quality start, and he's allowed just one run over 14 frames during that stretch. He appears to be back on track after giving up 11 runs over 10.1 innings across his previous two starts.... See More ... See Less
