Gray has been able to work out with teammate Curt Casali during MLB's shutdown period, MLB.com reports.
Gray only threw seven innings in spring training, as he was just a tad behind his teammates because of his offseason arthroscopic elbow surgery to remove bone chips. He was fully healthy in those outings, however. He should be at full capacity whenever baseball is ready to resume.
Gray threw two scoreless innings in his spring training debut against the Mariners on Wednesday, striking out three in the process. The outing was Gray's first since having bone chips removed from his elbow in September, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Gray came away encouraged from the results. "Man, I was excited for today. It was nice," Gray said. "I was trying to throw my fastball and just rip it the whole time. I checked a lot of boxes. I got my mind right. I was able to compete. It was good. I wished I could have gotten a leadoff hitter out, but other than that, it was good." After being limited to 175 innings last season, Gray could carry a heavier workload in 2020.
Gray (elbow) is scheduled to make his first start of the spring Wednesday against the Mariners, according to MLB.com.
Gray spent the offseason working his way back from elbow surgery, and it appears everything went off without a hitch. Barring any setbacks this spring, Gray figures to take the ball at some point during the Reds' season-opening series with the Cardinals.
Gray (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions already without suffering the elbow cramps and stiffness that he felt last spring, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Gray had bone chips in his elbow that were removed in September and dealt with them for years. "It's been pretty normal," Gray said Saturday about his recent bullpen sessions. "I probably threw more this offseason than I have. It'll be achy every now and again. But I threw my long bullpen [session] and came in and it feels great and it feels good today. It's weird, because it doesn't pop. I'm so used to throwing and it getting really stiff and having to pop it and spending hours in the training room."
Gray underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The procedure, which cleaned up loose bodies that he apparently dealt with all season, isn't expected to affect Gray's normal offseason routine. The right-hander enjoyed a bounce-back campaign in 2019, compiling a 2.87 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 205 strikeouts across 175.1 innings (31 starts) with the Reds.
Gray (11-8) allowed three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Brewers.
Gray was limited to just 74 pitches in his final start of the season, marking just his second start in his last 10 in which he didn't throw at least six innings. Overall, it was a stellar bounce-back season for Gray, as he posted a 2.87 ERA and 1.08 WHIP across 175.1 innings. His 205 punchouts were a career high -- his previous high was 183 across 219 frames in 2014. While still not among the elite pitchers in the game, Gray reestablished himself as a high-end pitching option heading into 2020.
Gray will be making his final start of the year Tuesday against the Brewers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gray would be on schedule to pitch on the final day of the season Sunday in Pittsburgh, but the Reds will elect to go with a bullpen day instead. The right-hander has exceeded expectations in his first season in Cincinnati, posting a 2.80 ERA and a career-high 199 strikeouts through 30 starts.
Gray (11-7) picked up the win in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Cubs, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over 6.2 innings while striking out nine.
The right-hander has given the Reds quality starts in each of his last six trips to the mound and eight of nine since the beginning of August, posting a stellar 1.46 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 69:27 K:BB through 55.2 innings over that stretch. Off days and Cincy's six-man rotation seem set to give Gray some extra rest, but he could get a final chance to play spoiler for an NL Central rival during next week's home series against the Brewers.
Gray (10-7) gave up three runs on two hits and three walks while striking out nine over 6.1 innings to take the loss against the Mariners on Wednesday.
Gray was pitching a no-hitter going into the the seventh inning, but he hit a batter, walked another, and gave up a three-run homer to put a tough finish on an otherwise spectacular outing. It's been a nice stretch for the 29-year-old, as he's posted a 4-1 record with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.95 in his last seven starts. Gray is scheduled to make his next start Monday against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Gray allowed one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and zero walks across six innings during a no-decision against the Phillies on Thursday.
The 29-year-old was outstanding, and the Reds finally gave him a lead in the sixth, which he departed with, but the Cincinnati bullpen was unable to hold it. Still, the performance extends Gray's streak of allowing two or fewer runs in his last seven outings. Since July 22, he is 5-0 with a 1.50 ERA in nine starts. Overall, Gray, who is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at the Mariners, is 10-6 with a 2.75 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 181 strikeouts in 157.1 innings this season.
Gray didn't factor in the decision in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader at St. Louis after giving up one unearned run on five hits across 6.2 innings. He struck out four and walked two.
Gray had won his last four starts but saw that streak come to an end as the Reds managed only three hits during the nightcap. The right-hander has been reliable on the mound all season, but he's really excelled since the All-Star break with a 1.62 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 71:21 K:BB over 61 innings.
Gray (10-6) gave up two runs on two hits and five walks while striking out six through six innings to earn the win over the Marlins on Monday.
Gray struggled with his control, but he did enough to deliver another quality start. Since the All-Star break, the 29-year-old has a 5-1 record with a 1.83 ERA in nine starts. Gray is scheduled to pitch the first game of a doubleheader Saturday against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
Gray (9-6) allowed one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out 10 across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Padres.
Gray held the Padres scoreless through 5.2 innings, until he surrendered a solo home run to Josh Naylor. That didn't sour his spectacular performance as he generated 19 swinging strikes to back his second straight double-digit strikeout performance (third of the campaign). Through 138.2 innings, Gray now owns a 2.92 ERA and 1.12 WHIP to go along with 164 strikeouts for the season. He's shown no signs of slowing down, allowing just one earned run across his last 24 innings -- a span of four starts. He'll look to keep things going in his next appearance, currently scheduled for Monday at Miami.
Gray (8-6) picked up the win against the Cardinals on Thursday, giving up no runs on just one hit over five innings, striking out 10 and walking three as the Reds won 2-1.
The right-hander didn't work very deep into the game, but he was suffocating over his five frames in logging his second double-digit strikeout effort of the season. Gray has been fantastic in 2019, as this performance gives him a shiny 2.98 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 154:50 K:BB across 132.2 innings.
Gray (7-6) allowed two hits and four walks while striking out seven over six scoreless innings in a win over the Cubs on Saturday.
The Reds put a hurting on Kyle Hendricks early and Gray cruised, with no Cubs baserunner advancing past second base against the right-hander. Since starting the season 0-4 with a 4.30 ERA in his first nine starts, Gray has gone 7-2 with a 2.47 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 96:31 K:BB over his last 83.2 innings. He lines up to face the Cardinals at home next week.
Gray threw seven shutout innings with four hits and four walks along with seven strikeouts during a no-decision against the Braves on Sunday.
While four walks was his most since June 21, Gray pitched very well and was more than deserving of a win, but the Reds bullpen gave up three runs over the eighth and ninth to blow his chance. With the seven scoreless frames, Gray dropped his ERA to 3.25, which is his best mark in the category since the middle of April. He is also 6-6 with a 1.13 WHIP and 137 strikeouts in 121.2 innings this season. Next, Gray will face the Cubs on Saturday.
Gray (6-6) gave up four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three through 5.1 innings to take the win over the Pirates on Monday.
Gray gave up only two runs going into the sixth inning and was pulled after giving up two singles in the frame. Unfortunately, the Reds bullpen would allow a grand slam that tacked those two runs onto his ERA. Despite the tough finish, Gray had a 2.24 ERA and a 39:7 K:BB in July. The right-hander has a 3.45 ERA with a 10.2 K/9 through 21 starts this season. Gray will make his next start Saturday against the Braves at SunTrust Park.
Gray will start Monday against the Pirates.
Gray was originally scheduled to pitch over the weekend, but the right-hander will be afforded an extra day of rest before his next start with Alex Wood (back) set to rejoin the rotation Sunday. In three starts since the All-Star break, Gray owns an impressive 1.84 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 24:5 K:BB in 19 innings.
Gray gave up one run on four hits and two walks while striking out seven through six innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Monday.
Gray was stellar again, racking up 22 called strikes on his way to a quality start. In the three starts coming into this game, Gray had a 2-0 record with a 1.96 ERA, and he has allowed three earned runs or fewer in 18 of his 20 starts. The 29-year-old has a 28.6 K% and a 3.29 ERA this season. Gray will make his next start Sunday against the Rockies at Great American Ball Park.
Gray (5-6) took the loss Wednesday against the Cubs after giving up two runs on two hits over six innings. He struck out eight and walked none.
Gray served up a pair of solo homers but otherwise kept the Cubs off the basepaths, though the Reds were unable to provide him much offensive support. The right-hander has a 1.64 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 35:5 K:BB in his last four starts, and he'll look to continue that trend Monday at Milwaukee.
