  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Goes distance in loss

    Gray (6-2) took the loss Wednesday despite allowing just one run on four hits while striking out 12 over nine innings versus the Cardinals.

    Gray made it six straight starts without allowing more than one run, but the Rangers' bats had a rare off night. He was able to throw the complete game on just 100 pitches (76 strikes) in a dominant outing spoiled only by Alec Burleson's eighth-inning solo home run. Gray now has a 2.32 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 63:20 K:BB through 73.2 innings this season. This was just the second complete game of his career. He's projected for a home start versus the Angels next week.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Wins fifth straight

    Gray (6-1) allowed two hits and a walk over seven shutout innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win over Seattle.

    Gray was dominant again, letting just one Mariner get into scoring position and retiring the final 10 batters he faced. He's won five consecutive starts while allowing one run or fewer in each, with his ERA dropping from 4.40 to 2.51 during that stretch. The veteran righty will carry a 51:20 K:BB into his next start, which is projected to come at home next week against the Cardinals.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Fans eight in win

    Gray (5-1) allowed one run on four hits and a walk over seven innings Friday, striking out eight and earning a win over Baltimore.

    After allowing a solo homer to Adley Rutschman in the first inning, Gray was nearly untouchable. He cruised through seven frames en route to a dominant 12-2 Rangers victory. Gray's been lights out over his last four starts, yielding just three runs with a 27:5 K:BB in 27 frames while earning a win in each outing. The veteran righty lowered his season ERA to 2.81 and has won five consecutive decisions since losing his season debut. Gray is currently projected for a matchup in Detroit next week.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Cruises to fourth win

    Gray (4-1) picked up the win Saturday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over five innings in an 11-5 victory over the Rockies. He struck out six.

    The right-hander wasn't particularly efficient in a matchup with his former club, needing 93 pitches (63 strikes) to barely qualify for the win, but the Rangers handed Gray an 8-0 lead after two innings and the outcome was never really in doubt. The 31-year-old has won three straight starts, giving up just two runs in 20 innings over that stretch with a 19:4 K:BB, and he'll try to stay locked in when he next takes the mound, which is likely to come in Baltimore next weekend.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Revamped slider working

    Gray said a mechanical tweak to his slider, designed to give the pitch a "sharper break," is the main reason for a scoreless streak that reached 14.2 innings Saturday, Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Gray tinkered with the new slider mechanics in spring training but ditched it for the sweeper version of the pitch that acts more like a curveball. The right-hander brought back the "sharper" slider against the Mariners his last time out, and the velocity numbers reflect the change. The pitch averaged 87 mph Saturday, nearly three mph faster than its season average.

  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Tosses eight scoreless innings

    Gray (3-1) earned the win Saturday, allowing three hits and two walks over eight scoreless innings against Oakland. He struck out five.

    Gray picked up his second straight quality start, blanking the lowly Athletics across eight innings after allowing one run over seven innings in his previous start. Though the 31-year-old has strung together a pair of strong performances and has yet to allow more than four runs in a start, Gray sports only a 6.31 K/9 so far, down from his 2022 average of 9.47 K/9 and 2021 average of 9.48 K/9 while giving up 1.39 HR/9, which would match his career high. Gray has had significantly more success against right-handed hitting, allowing a slash line of .212/.278/.364 compared to a .275/.366/.478 to lefties.
