|Rockies | Velocity returns for Jonathan Gray |
Thu, 26 Feb 2015 16:25:40 -0800
Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray learned methods for staying strong throughout a professional schedule last season, and he feels like the sky is the limit entering the 2015 season. Gray's fastball lost velocity during his first full professional season, but he designed a strengthening and maintenance plan with his trainers and strength coaches from The University of Oklahoma that corrected the issues.
Fantasy Tip: Gray will compete for a spot in the rotation, but it is more likely he begins the season in Class AAA. With just 33 starts in the minors, a little more seasoning would serve Gray well. He enters the mixed league discussion, if he has a strong spring and earns a rotation spot. Otherwise, Gray is solid prospect worth monitoring for a potential recall.

|Rockies | Jon Gray records ninth win at Double-A|
Thu, 17 Jul 2014 15:18:38 -0700
Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings, with seven strikeouts, and he issued only two walks Wednesday, July 16, for Double-A Tulsa. It was Gray's ninth win for Tulsa, and he has a 3.54 ERA and 88 strikeouts on the season.
Fantasy Tip: Gray is the Rockies' best pitching prospect and could get his first taste of major-league competition later this season. His home ballpark will never provide many favors, but Gray would be worth a speculative add in all formats, if he gets called up.

|Rockies | Tyler Matzek on deck?|
Thu, 05 Jun 2014 05:20:27 -0700
The Colorado Rockies could look to call up SP Tyler Matzek from Triple-A Colorado Springs or SP Jon Gray from Double-A Tulsa with SP Jordan Lyles (hand) out. They could also insert P Franklin Morales back into the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: The latter two options seem to be a reach. Matzek is 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA and 52 K's in 60 2/3 innings. He'd be worth a look in NL-only formats with some matchup value in mixed leagues.

|MLB | Jonathan Gray tests positive for banned substance|
Mon, 03 Jun 2013 15:15:27 -0700
University of Oklahoma SP Jonathan Gray, a candidate widely considered to be a top pick in this week's draft, failed an MLB test for the stimulant Adderall. Gray won't be penalized for the failed test as a draft-eligible player. Gray is believed to be only one of 200 draft-eligible players to have failed for any drug. One general manager said he didn't think it was a big deal that Gray tested positive because he could have a medical condition that requires the use of Adderall. There's no indication that a failure of the test will affect Gray's draft stock or negotiating power.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Gray to be taken within the top-five picks of Thursday's draft. He was initially drafted by the New York Yankees out of high school but chose to attend college instead. The right-hander made mechanical adjustments last year and can now hit triple digits with his fastball.
