Athletics general manager David Forst said Tuesday that the club will not trade Sonny Gray this offseason.
"We are not trading Sonny Gray," Forst said emphatically. There had been some speculation that Oakland might seek to deal their ace as they look to re-tool again, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. Gray's salary will go up a lot this winter as he reaches arbitration, but he will still be affordable even for the small-market A's for a few years. The righty held a 2.73 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 169/59 K/BB ratio over 208 innings in 2015. Nov 10 - 5:12 PM

A's general manager Billy Beane told Peter Gammons that he does not want to trade Sonny Gray or Josh Reddick.

"Trading Gray is not something I think we could do," said Beane. "We have to put a representative product on the field, and continue to dream we get a [new] ballpark." He went on to include Reddick as somebody he doesn't want to ship out of town. Gray was shut down in late September due to a hip injury, but pitched to a stellar 2.73 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 169/59 K/BB ratio over the course of 208 innings.
Nov 4 - 7:58 PM

Sonny Gray (hip) has officially been ruled out for the season.

Gray had to depart last Friday's outing with tightness in his left hip and remains sore. Considering the A's are well out of playoff contention and Gray has already thrown 208 innings, it would make sense to push him to take the ball again. Barry Zito will get another start on Wednesday in Anaheim.
Sep 28 - 8:09 PM

Sonny Gray (hip) is unlikely to make another start this season.

Gray was forced from Friday's outing with tightness in his left hip and admitted to still being sore Saturday. The A's are expected to wait another day or two before officially deciding what to do with the right-hander, but they're well out of contention so it wouldn't make any sense to push him. Gray has had a fine second full season, posting a 2.73 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 169/59 K/BB ratio over 208 innings.
Sep 27 - 9:45 AM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Sonny Gray is dealing with a sore hip.

The team will give him some time before deciding whether or not he'll make his next scheduled start. With the A's not in contention for the postseason, there is no reason to risk further injury, so they'll take every possible precaution.
Sep 26 - 2:16 PM

Sonny Gray pitched six innings of two-run ball to defeat the Giants on Friday.

Gray struck out seven in just his second quality start in five tries this month. He's fallen out of the Cy Young race while stumbling down the stretch, but he still has a fine 2.73 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 208 innings for the year.
Sep 26 - 1:21 AM

Sonny Gray was rocked by the Astros in a Saturday no-decision, yielding five runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Gray struck out two and walked four in what was generally just a struggle of an outing. The Astros scored three runs in the first inning and another two in the sixth to chase the Athletics ace from the mound. He's now allowed 12 runs in his last 8 1/3 innings. Despite the recent slide, he still owns a 2.72 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 162/57 K/BB ratio across 202 innings. A home start against the Giants shows next on his schedule as the 2015 season begins to wind down.
Sep 19 - 11:48 PM

Sonny Gray was slammed for seven runs in three innings but lucked into a no-decision as the White Sox needed 14 innings to beat the Athletics on Monday.

Gray served up a pair of two-run home runs in the third inning, then relented three more runs on two walks and three singles without recording an out in the fourth. The outing balloons Gray's ERA up to 2.56, so Dallas Keuchel has a comfortable 34-point lead and is the leading candidate for the Cy Young Award. The right-hander also has a 1.05 WHIP with a 160/53 K/BB ratio over 196 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Astros in on the road in his next outing.
Sep 15 - 1:54 AM

Sonny Gray bested the Astros in Tuesday's win, firing seven scoreless innings.

The right-hander out-dueled Scott Kazmir, scattering five hits and two walks while striking out four. With the outing, Gray retakes the lead for lowest ERA in the American League at 2.28 to Dallas Keuchel's 2.29. The AL Cy Young race certainly has intrigue. Gray is also 13-7 with a 156/49 K/BB ratio over 193 2/3 innings. He will oppose the White Sox in a road start next.
Sep 9 - 12:45 AM

Sonny Gray was hammered for six earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Angels.

Gray let up eight hits and walked one in the ugly afternoon outing. The trouble started right away, with the Anaheim offense pouring in four runs in the top of the first inning and another two in the top of the second. Gray will carry a 12-7 record, 2.36 ERA, and 1.00 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Astros.
Sep 2 - 6:40 PM

Sonny Gray pitched eight innings and allowed three runs Saturday in a no-decision against the Rays.

Logan Forsythe, John Jaso and Asdrubal Cabrera all hit solo homers off Gray, but he was in line for the win when he left. Unfortunately, the pen couldn't hold it. It's just the third time in his career that he's allowed multiple homers in a start, and the first time he's given up three.
Aug 23 - 12:57 AM

Sonny Gray returned to the rotation and lost on Monday, giving up four runs (one earned) in 5 2/3 innings.

Eric Sogard made an error with two outs to extend the fourth inning. Gray then allowed a single followed by a three-run home run, with all three runs being unearned. He gave up an RBI double followed by a walk before departing in the sixth. Overall, he served up seven hits and a pair of walks with five strikeouts. Gray will bring a 2.04 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and a 141/42 K/BB ratio over 167 1/3 innings into a home start against the Rays.
Aug 17 - 9:49 PM

Sonny Gray (back) has officially been cleared to rejoin the Athletics' rotation on Monday in Baltimore.

Gray missed a turn due to back spasms but got through a bullpen session on Saturday with no issues. Felix Doubront will start for the A's on Tuesday.
Aug 16 - 12:12 PM

Sonny Gray (back) didn't report any problems after throwing a 25-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

The A's are waiting to see how he feels tomorrow before deciding when he'll pitch again. Gray's progress the last two days suggests he won't require a stint on the disabled list. Jesse Chavez started in his place Thursday against Toronto.
Aug 15 - 4:32 PM

Sonny Gray (back) played catch from up to 75 feet on Friday.

He'll next throw a bullpen session on Saturday. Gray will miss a turn in the rotation due to back spasms but remains hopeful of rejoin the rotation as soon as Monday. Brad Mills will make a spot start Friday.
