GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.--Rockies' first-rounder Jonathan Gray was promoted to High-A Modesto Sunday after four starts with rookie Grand Junction.
The move was expected since the right-handed pitcher was assigned to begin his professional career with the Grand Junction Rockies.
The organization wanted the former OU star to learn how to pitch in altitude, but most importantly, work on his third pitch.
"I knew their main plan was to develop the changeup, and it's there now," Gray said.
The third overall pick has allowed 15 hits, eight runs (six earned) in 13 1/3 innings.
