  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Strikes out nine

    Gray gave up two earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out nine over seven innings in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Gray had one of his best starts of the year and has continued to show a propensity to pitch well on the road. He now boasts a 2.01 road ERA on the season and an excellent 1.13 ERA over the month of June. The home run has been Gray's major weakness, and the two-run blast he surrendered to Nathaniel Lowe was his 15th long ball in 14 appearances this season. Look for Gray to take the mound at home against the Marlins on Friday.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Tosses six scoreless innings

    Gray pitched six scoreless innings against Philadelphia on Saturday, allowing one hit and three walks while striking out four. He did not factor in the decision.

    Gray wasn't efficient in the outing, needing 117 pitches -- only 66 of which were strikes -- to make it through six frames. However, he gave up only one hit (a first-inning infield single) to record his second straight scoreless start. The right-hander struggled to a 5.44 ERA over his first nine appearances of the season, but he's since allowed just two earned runs over 22 innings covering four starts to lower his ERA to 3.95. Gray continues to struggle with walks, however -- he's issued at least three free passes in four of his past five appearances and has racked up 32 walks on the season, tied for third most in the league.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Next start coming Saturday

    Gray is scheduled to make his next start in Saturday's home game against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gray was lined up to make two starts at the beginning of the week, but he was ultimately scratched from his scheduled outing Monday against Atlanta since the Nationals didn't want to have him warm up a second time following a 90-minute rain delay. Rather than having Gray pitch a couple days later, the Nationals elected to skip his turn in the rotation entirely. Gray will take a 6-4 record, 4.33 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into his 13th start of the season this weekend.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: No longer starting Monday

    Gray is not starting Monday's game against the Braves, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Gray appeared to have finished his pregame warmups and was ready to take the mound, but then rain delayed the contest for an hour and a half. The right-hander figures to be able to go Tuesday, but the Nationals have yet to announce their pitching plan for the second game of the series. Erasmo Ramirez will start what figures to be a bullpen game Monday evening.

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

    Gray didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Marlins, allowing six hits and a walk over five scoreless innings. He struck out six.

    The right-hander dueled Miami ace Sandy Alcantara to a standstill for five frames as the two teams wound up doing all their scoring in the 10th. Gray tossed 69 of 101 pitches for strikes before exiting, continuing a hot streak that has seen him give up one earned run or less in three straight outings. He'll take a 4.33 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 69:29 K:BB through 62.1 innings into his next start.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Beats Reds for sixth win

    Gray (6-4) earned the win Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and three walks while striking out nine over six innings against the Reds.

    Facing the team that originally drafted him in 2018, Gray turned in arguably his best start of the season so far. He had a recent blowup against another former team -- the Dodgers -- but the 24-year-old right-hander has responded well with two earned runs allowed and 12 strikeouts in his last two starts (11 innings). Gray should be considered a volatile option given the walks and homers. While he can flash brilliance, Gray is still inconsistent.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Back in win column

    Gray (5-4) allowed one run on three hits and four walks over five innings Sunday, striking out three and earning a win over the Rockies.

    After serving up a leadoff home run to Charlie Blackmon on the second pitch of the game, Gray kept Colorado off the board for the rest of his outing. Since his last win May 7, he had coughed up 16 runs on seven homers over his previous three outings entering Sunday. The 24-year-old righty lowered his ERA to 5.08 with a 54:25 K:BB through 51.1 innings. Gray is lined up to take the mound in Cincinnati next week.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Bludgeoned by Dodgers

    Gray (4-4) took the loss Tuesday as the Nationals were downed 9-4 by the Dodgers, surrendering seven runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over three innings. He struck out five.

    It was the worst performance of the year for the right-hander, as Gray needed 80 pitches (47 strikes) to record only nine outs against his former club. The 24-year-old has been unable to keep the ball in the yard as the weather has warmed up, serving up nine homers over his last four starts and 20.1 innings. The rough stretch has left Gray with a 5.44 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 51:21 K:BB through 46.1 frames on the season.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Fans seven in quality start

    Gray didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Marlins, giving up three runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter.

    It was arguably the right-hander's sharpest performance yet this season, as he didn't issue any free passes for the first time in eight starts. Gray tossed 95 pitches (65 strikes) en route to his second quality start of the campaign, and he'll take a 4.36 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 46:18 K:BB through 43.1 innings into his next outing.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Rebounds from awful first inning

    Gray fell to 4-3 on the season Friday against the Astros, allowing six runs on six hits across six innings while striking out five batters and walking two.

    Almost all the damage the Astros did came in the first inning, a frame in which they homered twice and crossed the plate five times. Gray was allowed to remain in the game and threw five good innings after that, allowing just one more run on a Yordan Alvarez homer. It's not an outing that will have helped out any fantasy teams, but the ability to rebound at least represents an encouraging sign for the 24-year-old righty. He'll look to pitch well from the start his next time out, which lines up to come Wednesday against the Marlins.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Posts fourth win

    Gray (4-2) earned the win during Saturday's 7-3 victory over the Angels, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Gray was staked to an early 4-0 lead and almost gave it up in a three-run fourth inning but held on to record his fourth win in five starts. Excluding his first turn, Gray has permitted eight runs in 27.1 innings -- good for a 2.63 ERA -- though he's already handed out 16 free passes. The 24-year-old will be in for a challenge as he's scheduled to face Houston next weekend.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Six shutout frames

    Gray (3-2) picked up the win during Sunday's 11-5 victory over San Francisco, allowing one hit and four walks with three strikeouts in six scoreless innings.

    Gray took the hill with a 5-0 lead in hand and breezed through the first four innings, only encountering trouble when he loaded the bases in the fifth. However, he was able to strike out Darin Ruf to end the threat. The 24-year-old has excelled in two road starts thus far, tossing 11 scoreless innings combined, compared to surrendering nine runs in 15 innings during three home games. The totals come out to a solid 3.12 ERA, 31 strikeouts and a slightly high 1.31 WHIP in 26 innings.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Fans 10 in Tuesday's loss

    Gray (2-2) took the loss Tuesday as the Nationals were downed 5-2 by the Marlins, giving up four runs on seven hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out 10.

    The 10 whiffs tied his career high and Gray fired 66 of his 98 pitches for strikes, but his command within the zone left something to be desired as he got hit hard, with Joey Wendle's three-run shot in the fourth inning proving to be the difference in the game. Gray's 32.9 percent strikeout rate through 20 innings this season is definitely encouraging, but it comes with an 11.8 percent walk rate fueling his 4.05 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Two-start week on deck

    Gray is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Marlins in Washington.

    Both Gray and Joan Adon were options for two starts last week after the two took the hill for the April 19 doubleheader with Arizona, but Washington ended up going with Adon over Gray for Sunday's 12-3 loss to the Giants. Gray will instead take the hill on six days' rest for the Nationals' first game this week Tuesday, setting himself up to make a second turn over the weekend in San Francisco. After getting tagged for four runs on eight hits and two walks in his first start of the season April 8 against the Mets, Gray has bounced back effectively in his subsequent two outings. He's worked five and 5.1 innings, respectively, in wins over Atlanta and Arizona, permitting only one earned run between the starts while striking out 13.

  • Nationals' Josiah Gray: Nabs second win

    Gray (2-1) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks, giving up one run on three hits and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out eight.

    Daulton Varsho took him deep for a solo shot in the third inning, but otherwise Gray did a good job stifling Arizona's bats. The right-hander threw 50 of 87 pitches for strikes, and while his control so far has been a little shaky, Gray still sports a 3.14 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB through his first 14.1 innings this season.
