Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray was removed from Thursday night’s contest against the San Francisco Giants after walking the first batter in the bottom of the fourth. We cannot be 100 percent certain at this point the reason, but Gray appeared to have aggravated a toe injury he sustained during spring training, and injury he told us about a week ago was keeping him from running at full strength but not affecting his pitching.

He did so making a good defensive play, but he landed awkwardly on the jump.

UPDATE:

 

Gray was pitching a one-hit shutout and had just been given a 2-0 lead on Trevor Story‘s first home run of the year.

Left-hander Chris Rusin came on in relief.

We will have an update as soon as we know more about Gray’s health status.
