DENVER — The Colorado Rockies placed right-hander Jon Gray on the 10-day injured list with a right flexor strain Saturday, a day after he was forced to cut short a start due to injury.
Gray came out of his start Friday against Oakland after pitching 2 1-3 innings. He had told team trainers that he felt tightness and soreness around his pitching elbow.
In separate moves, the Rockies placed right-hander Jordan Sheffield on the 10-day injured list with a right lat strain. The team recalled left-handers Ben Bowden and Lucas Gilbreath from Triple-A Albuquerque to fill the roster vacancies.
