Jon Gray News
The Texas Rangers activated right-hander Jon Gray (oblique) from the 15-day injured list on Monday and optioned right-hander Tyson Miller to Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding move. Gray will make his return to the rotation on Monday against the Miami Marlins in the second game of a doubleheader after being sidelined since early August with an oblique injury. The 30-year-old will certainly be more of a shaky fantasy asset for his start on Monday, especially since he didn't make any minor league rehab starts before being activated. In his first year in Texas, Gray has gone 7-6 with a 3.83 ERA (3.49 FIP), a 1.17 WHIP and a 116:34 K:BB in 103 1/3 innings over his 19 starts. As long as he's healthy, he'll be useful in mixed leagues down the stretch.
Texas Rangers pitcher Jon Gray (oblique) was placed on the 15-day injured list with a strained left oblique Tuesday and is expected to be out four to six weeks. He initially suffered the injury during Monday's start against the Baltimore Orioles. The 30-year-old owns a 3.83 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and a 116:34 K:BB across 103 innings in 2022. He is expected to miss the rest of August, and with the Rangers record under .500 (46-56), Texas could shut the right-hander down for the year if they are eliminated from a playoff spot in September. Fantasy managers with an open IL spot should stash Gray, as he could return a few weeks before the end of the season.
Texas Rangers starting pitcher Jon Gray (side) left his start early on Monday against the Baltimore Orioles due to discomfort in his left side. He departed after recording just one out in the second inning after throwing 48 pitches. Gray will get further testing on Tuesday, but manager Chris Woodward said the best-case scenario feels like Gray would miss just one start with what the team later called "left side discomfort." Prior to his start on Monday, the 30-year-old right-hander had a 2.65 ERA in 11 starts since June 1. If the Rangers don't acquire a starter at Tuesday's trade deadline, Taylor Hearn will likely be the immediate option for the starting rotation. Hearn opened the year in the rotation but was moved to the bullpen in June and then sent to Triple-A Round Rock. He has a 6.25 ERA as a starter and 1.59 ERA as a reliever in 2022.
Jon Gray finally escaped the thin air of Colorado last season, but his 7-7 record and 3.96 ERA over 127 IP were more solid than spectacular. His ERA estimators were a little better with a 3.59 xERA and 3.46 xFIP, but you cannot talk about Gray's 2022 season without bringing up his injuries. He went on the IL with a right middle finger blister after his first start, a low-grade left knee sprain on April 20, and an oblique injury in August. He had a 7.00 ERA in April, 5.04 in May, and 4.50 in September. His healthy months looked like fantasy gold with a 2.39 ERA in June and a 2.97 mark in July. Gray also boasts an above-average 25.7 K% on the back of a wicked slider (20.6 SwStr%, 39.2% chase rate) and plays for a team with a solid offense, so he should get his fair share of wins. The only risk is that Gray is a two-pitch pitcher with both his change and curve looking ineffective last season. All told, Gray is worth taking well before his current ADP of 200.93.
