Gray hurt, Arenado homers as Rockies beat Brewers 6-5
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Top Rockies prospect Jon Gray left with an abdominal injury after facing only three batters and Nolan Arenado homered in Colorado's 6-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday.
Gray, the third overall pick in the 2013 draft, was penciled into a rotation spot. When Jonathan Lucroy tapped his 97 mph fastball to the mound for a likely double play, Gray threw it high and wide of second base and a run scored.
Manager Walt Weiss and the training staff came out to check on the 24-year-old Gray, who was quickly removed after 16 pitches. Weiss wasn't certain how long Gray will be out.
Gray gave up a double to Scooter Gennett and walked Ramon Flores.
Arenado, Charlie Blackmon and Gerardo Parra all homered against Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann. Arenado went 1 for 3, ending a streak of eight straight multihit games and dropping his average to .605.
