ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jeff Gray pitched three scoreless innings in relief of John Danks in the White Sox' 6-2 loss to the Angels on Tuesday night, lowering his ERA to 2.70.
Then he said his goodbyes.
The Sox won't make an official roster move until before Wednesday's game, when Jake Peavy makes his first start of the season and goes back on the 25-man roster. Gray appeared to be the odd-man out, and judging by the handshakes and well wishes from teammates, that seemed a certainty.
"Awesome, awesome," Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said when asked about Gray's outings. "He has pitched very well for us. This kid has good stuff.''
Gray came up when outfielder Lastings Milledge was waived in April.
