SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Saturday was painful for Rockies top prospect Jon Gray in more ways than one.
Not only did the right-handed Gray, the team's top Draft pick in 2013, manage just two outs during a seven-run (six earned) first inning against the Cubs, but he experienced pain in his right groin. Gray insisted Sunday that the soreness will not affect his next scheduled start. He needs to erase the hurt from his performance at a time when it seemed logical to pencil him in as the No. 2 starter.
