By the time you're done reading this story you're going to think to yourself, 'the only thing left for Jon Gray to do is to pitch this well for 200 innings.'
Colorado Rockies right-handed starter Jon Gray is elite. He's one of the 20 best pitchers in baseball.
Hear me out.
In a season in which Gray's first half was derailed by injury and his several starts after were hampered by the recovery, the only thing that held him back from being in the conversation for Cy Young was usage.
Over his 20 start, 110 innings pitched 2017 season Gray posted a 10-4 record with a 3.67 ERA and 3.18 FIP which amounted to a 3.2 fWAR/3.1 rWAR.
What does all that mean? He was really good. But how good?
