Texas Rangers Sign Jon Gray

The Texas Rangers continued to make moves on Sunday as they were able to strike a deal with the veteran right-handed pitcher, Jon Gray. In a deal that was first reported by Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News, Gray is coming to the Rangers for four years, $56 million.

Gray comes to the Rangers after spending the first seven years of his career with the Colorado Rockies. With Coors Field known for being not so pitcher-friendly, Gray went 53-49, with a 4.59 ERA and 849 career strikeouts. Away from Coors Field, Gray has an ERA of 4.65.

The Rangers hope that a change of scenery will help Gray get back on track in the pitcher-friendly ballpark at Globe Life Field. With the addition of Gray, he will join a young Rangers rotation that continues to show promise with Dane Dunning and Glenn Otto in the mix for starting jobs. The Rangers future looks bright as they continue to make moves that will help them contend in 2022.
