The Texas Rangers went on a serious spending spree this offseason, including the signing of free-agent starting pitcher Jon Gray. Unfortunately, Gray hasn't had much of an opportunity to impress his new squad thanks to a series of untimely injuries.

That trend continued on Monday afternoon during a matinee game against the New York Yankees.

Jon Gray Injury Update

Gray departed in the fifth inning despite cruising. The eight-year veteran righty had pitched 4.1 innings of scoreless baseball, holding the Yankees offense to just two hits.

He appeared to come up slightly limp after forcing to Isiah Kiner-Falefa to pop out foul on a bunt attempt for the first out in the 5th inning.

Gray has already spent two separate stints on the IL this season. The first happened because of a blister before Gray was sidelined again thanks to a left knee sprain in late-April.

The concern is Gray re-aggravated this knee injury, which was confirmed somewhat by the Rangers PR Twitter account. Texas called this a precautionary move, but all eyes will be on Gray's status moving forward.

The veteran righty has only thrown 16.1 innings thus far because of his injury issues.
