Report: Rangers, Gray finalizing 4-year, $56M deal
The Rangers won't have to forfeit a draft pick to sign Gray because the Rockies didn't make him a qualifying offer.
Colorado made Gray a competitive offer, according to Rockies general manager Bill Schmidt.
Gray posted an 8-12 record with a 4.59 ERA and 4.22 FIP last season while making half his starts at Coors Field - one of the toughest parks for pitchers. The 30-year-old put up a better ERA and WHIP in 14 outings in Colorado than on the road.
The former third overall pick owns a 53-49 career record with a 4.59 ERA and 3.91 FIP in 151 starts over seven big-league seasons - all with the Rockies.
