Sonny Gray surrendered four runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Rays.
It wasn't all bad for Gray, who provided the Yankees a measure of length while striking out seven against just one walk. As has often been the case this season, though, the bad outweighed the good. Jake Bauers knocked him for an RBI double in the first inning, with two more runs scoring in the second inning before Gray stemmed the bleeding. Willy Adames came through with a solo home run in the seventh to account for the final run on the right-hander's line. Gray's turned in less effective outings this season, but the reality is that the Yankees needed him to step up on Saturday with their offense in a rare cool spell. It just didn't happen. He'll try for more encouraging results when he brings his unwieldy 4.93 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into a potentially troublesome home date with the Red Sox next time he toes the rubber. Jun 23 - 6:50 PM

Sonny Gray held the Nationals to two runs over five innings Monday for his fifth win of the season.

Gray yielded six hits, but he issued only one walk and struck out seven Nats. The 28-year-old right-hander is now 5-4 on the season with a 4.89 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 66/33 K/BB ratio in 73 2/3 innings. He'll go for win No. 6 this weekend at Tampa Bay's Tropicana Field.

Sonny Gray let in four runs in five innings and was fortunate to escape with a no-decision against the Nationals on Wednesday.

He gave up a run on a sacrifice fly by Anthony Rendon in the first inning, then locked things down until faltering in the fifth when rookie Juan Soto whacked a three-run bomb. Gray struck out just one batter against two walks and seven base hits in the sub-par outing. Things could have been worse if he hadn't picked two runners off first base in the ballgame. Gray has a 4-4 record with a 4.98 ERA and 1.49 WHIP.

Sonny Gray struck out eight batters while turning in eight shutout innings but did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

His elite performance was matched by opposing starter Sam Gaviglio, preventing either of them from getting the victory in a game that wasn't decided until the 13th inning. Gray yielded just two base hits and two walks in his second consecutive gem outing. He's allowed one run in 14 innings over his last two starts. Gray's record holds at 4-4 with a 4.81 ERA after 12 starts. He will try to keep his momentum going against the Nationals next Wednesday.

Sonny Gray was excellent in Friday's victory over the Orioles, racking up six strikeouts over six innings of one-run baseball.

The right-hander scattered just four hits in the ballgame and didn't walk a batter. The only blemish on his night was a solo homer off the bat of Manny Machado in the first inning. Gray has been brutally inconsistent this season, compiling a 5.50 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 58/20 K/BB ratio over 55 2/3 innings. He continues to show flashes though that better days are on the horizon. He'll look to keep it rolling when he squares off against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Wednesday.
Jun 1 - 10:17 PM

Sonny Gray was rocked for five runs on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Angels.

Gray dominated the Royals over eight innings in his last start, in what appeared to be a strong step toward getting his season on track. Those results did not carry over to Saturday, at all. Mike Trout burned him for an RBI double to score Zack Cozart with nobody out in the first inning, but the Yankees offense had his back with four runs of their own through the first two innings. Holding a 4-1 lead in the third, Gray would run into his next spot of trouble, allowing two more runs -- one of which he walked in with the bases loaded -- before Trout ended his night with a two-run home run with two outs in the fourth inning. He finished his slog of an outing having struck out seven and walked three. Gray has consistently looked out of sync throughout the season, especially when he starts to run into trouble. He'll carry a 5.98 ERA and 1.71 WHIP into a road date with the Orioles next time out. Even given the upcoming opponent, it's hard to trust the right-hander at this juncture.
May 26 - 10:48 PM

Sonny Gray rolled over the Royals on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits over eight innings in a win.

It was a vintage Gray that showed up on this day, as the right-hander induced 12 ground ball outs while walking just one and striking out five. It was easily his longest start of the year -- he hadn't gone past six innings in any of his first eight -- and the one run allowed was his lowest since his season debut on April 1. The win improved him to 3-3 with a 5.48 ERA and 1.63 WHIP. Gray will try to retain that form Saturday when the Angels are in town.
May 20 - 5:36 PM

Sonny Gray was tagged for five runs over five innings in a loss to the Athletics on Friday.

After back-to-back promising starts, Gray threw a dud against his former team. He gave up nine hits — including a pair of homers - while walking three. He struck out just two of the 27 batters he faced while getting seven swings and misses in his 93 pitches. His ERA now sits at a disappointing 6.39 for the year. The Yankees have some off-days coming up, so Gray’s next projected start is next Friday against the Royals in Kansas City. It’s a good opportunity to rebound on paper, though we understand why fantasy owners would prefer to leave him benched at this point.
May 11 - 11:00 PM

Sonny Gray delivered a strong performance in Saturday's victory over the Indians, surrendering just two runs on four hits over six frames.

The right-hander punched out seven on the afternoon while walking just two. He gave up a solo homer to Francisco Lindor in the fifth inning and an RBI groundout to Edwin Encarnacion in the sixth, but aside from that he was outstanding. Gray will look to build on this fine outing and further improve upon his 6.00 ERA and 1.76 WHIP when he does battle against the Athletics on Friday.
May 5 - 4:16 PM

Sonny Gray pitched six innings of two-run ball Monday against the Astros.

Gray took a loss tonight, but it qualifies as his best start of the year. It's actually just the second time that he's completed five innings. As shaky as he's been thus far, he still figures to have some mixed-league value this season.
Apr 30 - 11:04 PM

Sonny Gray's struggles continued but he escaped with a no-decision after allowing three runs in 4 2/3 innings versus the Twins on Wednesday.

Miguel Sano squared him up for a two-run homer in the first inning. Gray issued five walks and allowed six hits in the short outing. The Yankees will keep running him out there but he better round into form soon or he could be removed from the rotation before too long. He has an eye-popping 7.71 ERA and 2.14 WHIP after five starts. He's walked 16 batters in 21 innings.
Apr 26 - 12:17 AM

Sonny Gray let in five runs in 3 1/3 innings in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He surrendered a two-run homer to Teoscar Hernandez in the second inning -- the first bomb he's given up this year. Gray had no control over his pitches tonight. He issued four walks and threw two wild pitches in the brief outing. The Yankee bullpen walked another five batters to keep the bases full of Blue Jays all night. It's been a brutally rough season for Gray and his fantasy owners so far -- he has an 8.27 ERA with 23 hits and 11 walks allowed in his first 16 1/3 innings through four starts.
Apr 20 - 10:49 PM

Sonny Gray struggled on Thursday, surrendering seven hits and six runs over three innings in a loss to the Red Sox.

He walked two and struck out three. The Red Sox did most of their damage in the second, piling on four runs against Gray, who allowed five men to reach in the inning. He wasn’t much better in the third, beginning the frame by serving up back-to-back doubles to Eduardo Nunez and Jackie Bradley Jr. As a result of Thursday’s drubbing, Gray’s ERA skyrocketed from 3.60 to 6.92. He’ll look to get back on track next time out against the Marlins.
Apr 12 - 11:17 PM

Sonny Gray will start Thursday against the Red Sox.

He'll essentially move up a spot to take CC Sabathia's turn in the rotation. The Yankees were debating giving Domingo German the assignment.
Apr 10 - 5:48 PM

Sonny Gray posted a quality start in Saturday's victory over the Orioles, allowing three runs on four hits over his six frames.

Gray punched out four on the afternoon while walking two. Manny Machado was responsible for most of the damage against him, with a two-run double in the third inning. Gray will look to continue his winning ways when he does battle against the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.
