Sonny Gray yielded two runs -- one earned -- over five-plus innings Tuesday as the Yankees earned a comeback victory over the Astros in Game 4 of the ALCS.
Gray was cruising until the top of the sixth, when he issued a four-pitch leadoff walk to George Springer and Josh Reddick reached on a catcher's interference call. David Robertson entered the game at that point and eventually served up a bases-loaded three-run double to Yuli Gurriel. The messy frame seemed to doom the Yankees, but the Baby Bombers roared back for two runs in the bottom of the seventh and four more in the bottom of the eighth to win Game 4 by a score of 6-4. Gray allowed just one hit and two walks while striking out four. Oct 17 - 8:58 PM

Sonny Gray lost after giving up three runs in 3 1/3 innings Thursday against the Indians.

Gray couldn't locate the breaking ball tonight, and he ended up walking four batters. Just 40 of his 73 pitches for strikes. Maybe nerves played a role, but it also should be noted that he was wild in his last few regular-season starts; he gave up 12 runs and walked 11 over 14 2/3 innings his previous three times out. It will be interesting to see if he gets to start again if the series goes five games.
Oct 5 - 11:24 PM

Sonny Gray will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Indians on Thursday.

It's not a huge surprise, even if Gray did struggle in two of his final three regular-season starts. Indians' hitters have a career OPS of .630 against him in their career. CC Sabathia will start Game 2, Masahiro Tanaka will start Game 3, and Luis Severino -- who got lit up in the AL Wild Card Game -- is on tap for a potential Game 4.
Oct 4 - 8:09 PM

Sonny Gray is on the Yankees' roster for Tuesday's AL Wild Card game against the Twins.

The Yankees will carry 10 pitchers for the do-or-die contest. CC Sabathia will also be available as insurance behind young ace Luis Severino. Tyler Wade and Clint Frazier are among the extra bench players for New York.
Oct 3 - 10:59 AM

Sonny Gray allowed six runs over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rays on Thursday.

In his final start before the postseason, Gray struggled, allowing a pair of homers among the Rays' six hits. Also of issue were the five walks issued, his highest walk total in a start this year. The 27-year-old finishes the year with a 3.55 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 27 starts between the A's and Yankees. Thursday's loss dropped his season-ending record to 10-12.
Sep 29 - 12:43 AM

Sonny Gray gave up just one run in six innings and was credited with a 5-1 win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He allowed four hits and three walks while registering four strikeouts in the quality start. The only damage came on a Teoscar Hernandez solo shot in the third inning. Gray improves to 10-11 with a fine 3.31 ERA in 26 starts with the Athletics and Yankees this year. He has 151 strikeouts and 52 walks in 157 2/3 innings pitched.
Sep 23 - 8:17 PM

Sonny Gray struggled against Baltimore on Sunday, giving up five runs in four innings of a 6-4 loss to the Orioles.

Amazingly, Gray was outdueled by Ubaldo Jimenez. No, you cannot predict baseball. The big damage came from a three-run homer by Tim Beckham in the fourth, but Gray struggled to locate his pitches all game. He's a bounce back candidate for his next start on Sunday against Toronto.
Sep 17 - 5:06 PM

Sonny Gray will move up in the rotation to start Sunday against the Orioles.

Meanwhile, CC Sabathia will be pushed back to Tuesday against the Twins while Jaime Garcia will move up to start Monday. Gray was previously scheduled to start Monday, but he'll be going on usual rest on Sunday.
Sep 16 - 8:04 PM

Sonny Gray took a complete-game loss after giving up two runs in eight innings against the Rays on Tuesday.

The complete game is Gray's first since 2015 and sixth of his career. He's now 3-5 with the Yankees, even though his ERA stands at 2.66. The light-hitting A's still managed to get him a winning record at 6-5 with a 3.43 ERA.
Sep 12 - 11:12 PM

Sonny Gray allowed just an unearned run over 5 2/3 innings in beating the Orioles on Thursday.

It wasn't Gray's most efficient outing -- he needed 102 pitches to get 17 outs -- but he allowed two earned runs or fewer for the sixth time in seven starts as a Yankee. He's 3-4 with a 2.74 ERA for his new club.
Sep 7 - 6:06 PM

Wednesday's game between the Yankees and Orioles has been postponed due to rain.

Conveniently enough, both teams have a common off-day on Thursday which will allow them to play an immediate makeup game. That makeup game is scheduled to begin at 1:35 EST. Sonny Gray and Kevin Gausman had been set to start Wednesday's contest and both will presumably just be pushed back a day.
Sep 6 - 5:04 PM

Sonny Gray yielded four runs over seven innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.

Gray had allowed two runs or fewer in 11 straight starts, but that streak came to an end in this one. All the damage came via the home run ball, as Eduardo Nunez, Andrew Benintendi, and Hanley Ramirez all went deep against him. He struck out nine and walked one in the loss and now sits at 8-9 with a 3.36 ERA over 22 starts overall. Gray gets the Orioles next in Baltimore.
Sep 1 - 10:13 PM

Sonny Gray was terrific in Saturday's victory over the Mariners, allowing just one run on three hits over seven strong innings.

Gray racked up nine strikeouts on the afternoon and walked two. The only blemish on his day was a long solo home run off the bat of Carlos Ruiz in the third inning. Now 8-8 on the season, Gray will carry a 3.26 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into Thursday's outing against the Red Sox.
Aug 26 - 4:45 PM

Sonny Gray pitched well in his home debut with the Yankees on Tuesday, holding the Mets to two runs over six-plus innings in a 5-4 win.

Gray had a shutout entering the seventh inning, but he walked Wilmer Flores to lead off the frame and Dominic Smith then sliced one over the left-field wall for his first major league homer. The righty struck out five on the night and has now allowed exactly two runs over six innings in each of his three starts with the Bombers. He’ll get his first taste of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry on Sunday at Fenway.
Aug 15 - 11:06 PM

Sonny Gray allowed three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.

This start looked an awful lot like his Yankees debut, sans the early meltdown by his defense. In both, Gray has been solid but unspectacular, he's been let down by errors and his offense has been nonexistent. The right-hander is now 6-7 with a 3.39 ERA through 18 starts on the year, and with a little more backing from one of the league's best offenses he should get his first win as a member of the Bombers in short order. That win could come Tuesday against the cross-town rival Mets.
