It is cool to actually see Jon Gray pitch. The excitement from the glowing reports on a top pitching prospect like him are one thing, but to actually see him on the mound, no matter how poor the quality of the video or the unfortunate camera angle utilized in a Double-A park, is quite enjoyable.

It is in that spirit that I present to you the following: an opportunity to gush over top prospect Jon Gray, who has been stellar for the Tulsa Drillers as of late, and what he will eventually bring to the Rockies rotation. Accompanying these thoughts will be animated GIFs: they are enough to see Gray and get excited, though perhaps not enough to get into the finer details of analysis because of aforementioned issues with quality and camera angle.

With that in mind, let’s get excited about one of the two blue-chip starting pitchers currently in the Rockies minor league system.
