The stadium radar reading showed Gray throwing as high as 97 mph, and he was consistently around 94-95 while mixing in some sharp breaking balls. He also induced two double-play ground balls.

"It went well," Gray told MLB.com via text. "I didn't experience any discomfort at all. It was good to get going [at] game speed again."

If all goes well between starts, Gray's next rehab outing will be for Triple-A Albuquerque. After that, the Rockies will determine whether he will need another start in the Minors before rejoining the Major League rotation.

"Slider was working well when I started to get on top of it," Gray said. "I located fastballs down well, also. [The] next step will be with [Albuquerque]."
