The Texas Rangers have added right-hander Jon Gray to their starting rotation on a four-year, $56 million deal pending a physical, according to ESPN MLB insider Jeff Passan.

It's been a busy and expensive Sunday for the Rangers, who also reportedly inked former Toronto Blue Jays second baseman and American League MVP finalist Marcus Semien to a seven-year, $175 million contract and outfielder Kole Calhoun to a one-year, $5.2 million deal.

Gray, who was selected third overall by the Colorado Rockies in 2013, made 29 starts in 2021, his seventh season with the club, and posted an 8-12 record with a 4.59 ERA and 157 strikeouts.

The 30-year-old from Shawnee, Oklahoma, became eligible for free agency after Colorado opted not to pick up his $18.4 million qualifying offer for next year.

Gray holds a career 53-49 record with a 4.59 ERA and 849 strikeouts.
