Jon Gray News
Texas Rangers right-hander Jon Gray will make the start in Game 4 of the World Series on Tuesday in Arizona against the Diamondbacks. Gray hasn't started a game for the Rangers since Sept. 25 and has allowed five earned runs on 10 hits (one home run) while walking one and striking out seven in four relief innings over three appearances this postseason, so he's surely going to have a short leash and extremely limited DFS upside. The D-backs are going with a bullpen game on Tuesday, so both teams could get into their bullpens early. During the 2023 regular season, Gray went 9-8 with a 4.12 ERA (4.47 FIP), 1.29 WHIP, 54 walks and 142 strikeouts in 157 1/3 innings over his 29 starts. In two starts against Arizona, he gave up nine earned runs in 9 1/3 frames with four walks and seven K's.
Texas Rangers starting pitcher Jon Gray (forearm) has been added to the team's ALCS roster. Gray was placed on the 15-day injured list back on September 29 with forearm irritation but the goal but he's on track to pitch in the Championship Series, which starts on Sunday in Houston. Jordan Montgomery is set to start Game 1 for Texas while Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound for Game 2. Max Scherzer (shoulder) was also added to the ALCS roster and he would be the presumptive starter for Game 3, so in all likelihood, Gray will work out of the bullpen in this series. Both him and Scherzer will likely be on pitch counts as well.
Texas Rangers right-hander Jon Gray (forearm) is on track to return to the starting rotation if the team advances past the Baltimore Orioles and to the American League Championship Series. Gray was placed on the injured list during the final weekend of the regular season with right-forearm tightness. If both Gray and Max Scherzer (shoulder) return for the ALCS, Andrew Heaney and Dane Dunning could then serve in bulk-relief roles, along with Martin Perez, giving the Rangers more depth and versatility in their bullpen. The 31-year-old Gray went 9-8 with a 4.12 ERA (4.47 FIP), 1.29 WHIP, 54 walks and 142 strikeouts in 157 1/3 innings over 29 starts in his second year in Texas in 2023. If he returns in the ALCS if Texas advances, he will be making just his second-ever postseason appearance.
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.
