The Colorado Rockies have determined that Jon Gray’s left foot injury will keep him out for at least a month. In the meantime, the Rockies' ace has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, as it was reported by the Denver Post.
The right-handed pitcher could only manage to complete three innings against the San Francisco Giants, in which he, remarkably, only conceded a single hit and no runs, even though his injury didn’t allow him to pitch any further on the pitcher’s mound.
In three starts this season with Colorado, he sported a 4.38 ERA in just 12 and 1/3 innings in the recently started season. In addition to his 4.25 FIP and 107 ERA+, he’s struck out nine batters, while walking seven batters and allowing one home run.
Outfielder Gerardo Parra also recieved the green light to be absent for a couple of days, as his wife is giving birth to his newborn. In order to replace Gray and Parra, the Rockies brought up outfield prospect Raimel Tapia, who is in the lineup tonight, and righty Shane Carle, who will join Bud Black’s bullpen.
