Sonny Gray got the win with five scoreless innings but exited the Athletics' 7-2 victory against the Rays with an injury on Sunday.

Gray was hit on the right ankle with a comebacker. Thankfully, X-rays were negative. He scattered four hits with no walks and four strikeouts on the afternoon, lowering his ERA to 1.77 with a 1.00 WHIP and a 61/18 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. Gray will likely be able to make his next start at home against the Yankees.

X-rays on Sonny Gray's right ankle came back negative.

Gray was hit on the ankle by a comebacker during Sunday's start in Tampa. He's escaped with merely a bruise and should be ready to roll later this week for his next scheduled start.
May 24 - 3:28 PM

Sonny Gray had to exit Sunday's start against the Rays with a right ankle contusion.

Gray was hit by a comebacker in the fourth inning. He initially stayed in and completed five scoreless frames, but the ankle must have swelled up on him. Gray should be fine for his next start.
May 24 - 3:00 PM

Sonny Gray allowed three runs over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Gray didn't have his best stuff, giving up seven hits -- including a two-run homer -- while walking three in the start. The home run was just his second allowed in nine starts. Despite the loss, Gray's ERA is still a stellar 1.92. Gray has now lost two in a row after a 4-0 start, and he'll look to get back in the win column Sunday at the Rays.
May 20 - 12:16 AM

Sonny Gray took his first loss of the season on Wednesday afternoon despite throwing seven innings of one-run ball against the visiting Red Sox.

Gray pitched brilliantly, yielding only three hits and walking none while whiffing nine Boston hitters. But the Oakland offense provided him zero runs of support. Gray will carry a stellar 4-1 record, 1.63 ERA, and 0.93 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Astros. He also boasts a 53/15 K/BB ratio in 56 innings this season.
May 13 - 6:19 PM

Sonny Gray was left with a no-decision after holding the Mariners to one run in six innings Friday.

Gray left with a two-run lead after striking out nine batters, but it was quickly blown in the seventh. It's the second time this season that he's shut down the Mariners and had nothing to show for it.
May 9 - 2:11 AM

Sonny Gray struck out 10 and pitched 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Rangers

Gray moved to 4-0 after the dominating outing. He allowed just two hits, but also walked a season-high seven. Let's just set aside the walks, as Gray had not walked more than two batters in any previous outing. His numbers are uniformly great this season, as he now owns a 1.69 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 35/13 K/BB ratio across 43 innings. Just about the only aspect of Sunday's start that could be considered remotely questionable (other than his control) is that he threw 119 pitches in the contest. The A's clearly feel comfortable letting the 25-year-old stretch out his arm, as he threw 219 innings last season. We'll see if this starts to add up as he progresses through what's been a stellar season to this point.
May 3 - 7:31 PM

Sonny Gray improved to 3-0 after limiting the Angels to two runs over eight innings on Tuesday.

Gray continues his utterly dominant start to the 2015 season. The right-hander scattered six hits and a walk while striking out six in the effort. The Angels scored their only runs in the first inning when David Freese hit a two-run single. Along with a perfect 3-0 record, Gray owns a 1.98 ERA, a 0.88 WHIP, and a 25/6 K/BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings. He'll look to remain undefeated when he closes out a road series with the Rangers next.
Apr 29 - 12:17 AM

Sonny Gray held the Angels to just one run on two hits in Wednesday's 9-2 win.

Gray was simply masterful in the outing, especially considering that the Royals knocked him around for 11 hits in his last start. No such problems versus the Angels. He struck out seven and walked two, with the only damage coming on an Eric Aybar RBI grounder in the second. Gray now boasts an ERA of 1.98 and a WHIP of just 0.88. He'll look to do this all over again in his next start, as he'll face the Angels once more.
Apr 23 - 1:51 AM

Sonny Gray was knocked around in a no-decision against the Royals on Friday, surrendering four runs on 11 hits over his six innings of work.

Gray walked just one on the night while whiffing five. Most of the damage against him came on a three-run uprising in the third inning where the Royals strung together a bevy of singles. Even with the rough outing, Gray boasts a 2.11 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 12/3 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings. He'll again search for his second win when he takes on the Angels in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Apr 17 - 10:50 PM

Sonny Gray yielded just two runs -- one earned -- over 7 1/3 innings but the Athletics fell in extra innings to the Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

Gray's only major blemish was a third-inning solo home run by Dustin Ackley. The 25-year-old right-hander was fantastic in his 2015 debut Monday against the Rangers, allowing only one hit over eight scoreless innings. And he pitched very well on Saturday versus Seattle, fanning four batters and issuing only one walk while again pitching into the eighth. Gray will try to stay hot next week at Kansas City.
Apr 11 - 7:46 PM

Sonny Gray held the Rangers to one hit over eight shutout innings in an Opening Day win against the Rangers on Monday.

Gray flirted with a no-hitter through seven innings, but Ryan Rua spoiled it with a single to lead off the eighth. Gray allowed just the one hit and a walk while striking out three. The right-hander showed his 2013 breakout was no fluke, finishing with a 3.08 ERA and a 183/74 K/BB ratio in 219 innings last season. Gray will take on the Mariners at home in his next outing.
Apr 7 - 12:58 AM

Sonny Gray was hammered for six runs over 2 2/3 innings in Wednesday's start against the Brewers.

The Brewers scored in all three innings in which Gray appeared, including scoring four times in the second inning. The right-hander surrendered eight hits, walked three, and did not record a strikeout. Gray has had lackluster results this spring, having allowed 12 runs on 23 hits and five walks while striking out nine in 14 1/3 innings.
Mar 25 - 7:28 PM

Sonny Gray has been named the A's Opening Day starter.

A's manager Bob Melvin made the announcement Monday morning in Arizona. Gray, 25, owns a 2.99 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 250/94 K/BB ratio in 283 career major league innings. He was the obvious choice for Oakland.
