(CBS4) – The Colorado Rockies sent out their thanks to Jon Gray on social media Wednesday night after the veteran pitcher signed with the Texas Rangers in free agency. The move happened prior to the overnight lockout that put a halt to all free agent signings.

The Rockies wrote “Forever the Gray Wolf. Thank you for everything on & off the field, Jon” on Facebook.

The Rangers contract with Gray is reportedly a four-year deal.
