  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Earns second straight win

    Gry (2-2) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks over 5.1 innings Monday, striking out four and earning a win over the Rockies.

    Gray kept Colorado off the board through five innings and didn't face much of a threat until the sixth. He allowed the first three batters of the inning to reach base and eventually coughed up a three-run double to Ryan McMahon, ending his outing. The 6-foot-1 rookie has completed at least five innings in four straight starts but owns a 6.23 ERA during that span. Gray is expected to make his final start of the year this weekend at home against Boston.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Pockets first MLB win

    Gray (1-2) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over six innings against Miami on Wednesday to earn his first career victory. He also registered eight strikeouts.

    Gray bounced back in a big way after having been pounded for 22 runs (and 14 walks) over his four previous starts, limiting the Marlins to RBI singles by Lewin Diaz and Jesus Sanchez. Gray stranded a pair of runners in the sixth inning to complete his fourth quality start since being acquired from the Dodgers at the trade deadline. Despite his inconsistencies, the 23-year-old has likely flashed enough -- including a 9.86 K/9 over 59.1 innings -- to solidify a rotation spot entering 2022. Gray is lined up to face the Rockies at Coors Field next Monday.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: No-decision versus Rockies

    Gray allowed five runs on three hits and four walks while striking out five in 5.1 innings during a no-decision versus Colorado on Friday.

    Control continues to be a problem for Gray, who threw 58 of 94 pitches for strikes in this contest. He's walked 10 batters in 10.1 innings across his last two starts. The 23-year-old owns a 6.24 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 57:27 K:BB in 53.1 innings overall, while adding an 0-2 record in 11 appearances. Gray projects for a friendlier road start in Miami next week.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Can't find plate against Bucs

    Gray didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 10-7 loss to the Pirates, coughing up five runs on three hits and six walks over five innings. He struck out four.

    The right-hander threw only 54 of 100 pitches for strikes, and when he did get the ball over the plate it got hit hard, as Bryan Reynolds and Ben Gamel both took him deep. The wheels have suddenly come off for Gray, and after posting a 2.89 ERA and 1.11 WHIP through his first five starts as a Nat, he's been tagged with a 12.75 ERA and 2.25 WHIP over his last three.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Another tough start Sunday

    Gray allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts in three innings versus the Mets on Sunday. He did not factor in the decision.

    The 23-year-old has yielded a half-dozen runs in each of his last two starts, covering just seven innings in that span. The right-hander allowed the Mets to cobble together four runs in the first inning and then yielded solo home runs to Jonathan Villar and Javier Baez before he was removed from the game. Gray has struggled to a 5.65 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 48:17 K:BB through 43 innings between the Nationals and the Dodgers this year. He's in line for a favorable road start versus Pittsburgh during next weekend's three-game series.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Falls to Phillies

    Gray (0-2) took the loss Monday, coughing up six runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings as the Nationals were downed 7-4 by the Phillies. He struck out four.

    The right-hander served up a two-run shot to Bryce Harper in the first inning on his 10th pitch of the game, and it was all downhill from there for Gray. It's the first time in six starts for the Nats he's failed to last at least five innings or given up more than three runs, but the one constant for Gray has been his inability to keep the ball in the park -- he's been tagged for at least one homer in every big-league appearance this year, and his 4.72 ERA is fueled by a 2.92 HR/9.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Fans seven in no-decision

    Gray didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Marlins, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out seven.

    The right-hander was sharp through 91 pitches (62 strikes), but Gray exited the game on the hook for his second loss of the year until the Nats did all their scoring in the top of the seventh inning. He's reeled off three straight quality starts, and the 23-year-old has a 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 29:8 K:BB through 28 innings since being traded east from the Dodgers.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Tosses quality start Wednesday

    Gray didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-5 win over the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four.

    Both runs came on solo shots by Teoscar Hernandez and Marcus Semien, but Gray was otherwise sharp as he delivered his second straight quality start. In four outings since heading east as part of the Max Scherzer/Trea Turner trade, the 23-year-old has an impressive 2.86 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 22:5 K:BB. If there's been an issue for Gray so far as a Nat, it's the difficulty he's had keeping the ball in the park -- he's served up seven homers in those four starts, but miraculously they've all come with the bases empty.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Charged with loss Friday

    Gray (0-1) allowed three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out six in six innings to take the loss against Atlanta on Friday.

    Gray limited Atlanta's offense to a single across the first four innings of Friday's matchup, but he allowed solo home runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to put him in line for his first loss of the year. Across three starts since he was traded to the Nationals, the right-hander has posted a 2.81 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 16 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next appearance on the road against Milwaukee on Friday.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Fans 10 batters Saturday

    Gray struck out 10 batters over five innings in a no-decision against Atlanta on Saturday. He surrendered two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks.

    In the best outing of his young career, Gray induced 20 swinging strikes in just five frames and racked up a career-high 10 punchouts. He allowed a solo homer to Jorge Soler in the first inning but was otherwise difficult to score upon, with the only other run against him coming as a result of an error in the third frame. The right-hander has looked superb in his first two starts with Washington, allowing a total of two earned runs over a combined 10 innings. He's tentatively lined up to face the Braves again -- this time at home -- next Friday.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Solid in Nats debut

    Gray didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 7-5 loss to the Phillies, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out two.

    Making his Washington debut, Gray blanked Philadelphia for four frames before Odubel Herrera launched a solo shot off him in the fifth, and he tossed 47 of 71 pitches for strikes before exiting. The right-hander hadn't lasted longer than four innings in either of his appearances for the Dodgers prior to heading east at the trade deadline, so the reduced workload is likely just temporary, but keeping the ball in the park has been a challenge for him in the majors so far -- Gray has served up five homers in only 13 innings.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Debuting Monday for Washington

    Gray was activated to the Nationals' 26-man roster Sunday and will start Monday against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gray made his first MLB start July 25 for the Dodgers before being traded to the Nationals on Friday, and he'll debut for his new team Monday. The 23-year-old was one of Los Angeles' top prospects and allowed six runs on seven hits with a 13:5 K:BB in eight innings across his first two appearances in the majors.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Traded to Nationals

    Gray will be traded from the Dodgers to the Nationals on Thursday along with Keibert Ruiz, Gerardo Carrillo and Donovan Casey in exchange for Max Scherzer and Trea Turner (COVID-19), Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Gray was widely considered the top prospect in the Dodgers' system and recently made his major-league debut. He should slot right into the Nationals rotation, which is now missing both Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg (neck). Prior to getting the call to the majors, Gray posted a 2.87 ERA and 0.66 WHIP across 15.2 frames with Triple-A Oklahoma City.
