MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Padres have continued to talk to the Yankees about a possible trade for Sonny Gray.
It looks like a near certainty that the Yankees will be dealing the embattled right-hander this offseason after he struggled to a 4.90 ERA during a disappointing 2018 season. The Brewers, Athletics, Reds, Braves, Rangers and Twins have all been mentioned as possible destinations for Gray, but no landing spot would be better for his fantasy value than the spacious confines of Petco Park in San Diego.

Jon Paul Morosi of reports that the Padres and Yankees have had ongoing discussions on a Sonny Gray trade.

The Padres have been linked to Gray before, so it's not a surprise that they have continued to be in touch. The 29-year-old disappointed with a 4.90 ERA this past season, but San Diego would be a great spot for a possible rebound in his walk year. The Brewers, Athletics, Reds, Braves, Rangers, and Twins are among the clubs who have been linked to Gray in recent reports. It would be a surprise if he's not dealt relatively soon.

Jon Paul Morosi of reports that the Brewers have been in contact with the Yankees about a trade for Sonny Gray.

This backs up recent reporting from Max Wildstein of Gotham Sports Network. It's no secret that the Yankees are shopping Gray and he's a sure thing to be dealt at some point this winter. The 29-year-old is coming off a 4.90 ERA this past season and has been a poor fit for New York, but there's plenty of appetite in him as a buy-low. The Brewers fit in this dynamic. Gray made $6.5 million in 2018 and has one year of arbitration before hitting free agency.
Dec 4 - 11:23 AM

The Braves, Padres, Rangers and Twins have expressed interest in Yankees right-hander Sonny Gray, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

Cafardo says Yankees GM Brian Cashman is already on record as having said he's going to trade Gray, with Gray's former club, the A's, also maintaining interest. Gray finished 2018 with a disappointing 4.90 ERA and saw himself fall out of favor in New York as a result, so a fresh start should benefit the 29-year-old. At this point, it sounds like where, not if, Gray gets that fresh start is the biggest question.

Nov 24 - 11:50 PM's Jon Morosi reports that the Athletics have been in talks with the Yankees about re-acquiring Sonny Gray.

Morosi says "there is no present momentum in talks" between the two clubs. Andy Martino of reported earlier Friday that the Yankees were weighing several offers for Gray and were likely to trade him soon. The Reds are another team known to be in on the right-hander, but many others are, as well.
Nov 16 - 3:37 PM

Andy Martino of reports that the Yankees "have multiple offers on the table" for Sonny Gray and appear close to trading the right-hander.

General manager Brian Cashman said last month that he expected to trade Gray and he noted at last week's GM Meetings that "a lot of teams" were interested in the hurler. The Yanks are weighing the offers for Gray and it sounds like they could pick one soon. Gray posted a 4.90 ERA in 2018 but would be a solid bounce-back candidate in a better environment. The Reds and A's are known to be in on Gray, but Martino says there are "approximately 11" teams interested.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Monday that "a lot of teams" are interested in Sonny Gray.

Cashman basically came out and said last month that he planned to trade Gray this offseason and it sounds like he's already spoken to some clubs about the right-hander. Gray posted a 4.90 ERA for the Yanks in 2018, but his velocity was fine and he had the second-best strikeout rate of his career. It's not a surprise that teams would be interested in buying low on him.
Nov 5 - 4:29 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated Friday that trading Sonny Gray this offseason would be best for both parties.

It hasn't worked out for Gray with the Yankees, as he finished with a 4.90 ERA over 30 appearances -- 23 starts -- in pinstripes this season. He's arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter and could make for a good buy-low option for some team. Gray held a 3.55 ERA across 27 starts in 2017.
Oct 12 - 1:34 PM

Sonny Gray gave up three runs -- two earned -- in three innings Tuesday in his spot start against the Twins.

Gray pitched well in his previous start Aug. 25, but with just one appearance in 17 days since, he wasn't sharp at all tonight. It's unclear if he'll receive any additional starts, though it seems likely that he'll make at least one or two as the Yankees try to line things up for the postseason.
Sep 12 - 12:05 AM

Sonny Gray will start for the Yankees on Tuesday in Minnesota.

It looks for now just to be a spot start to afford the members of the Yankees' rotation some extra rest. Gray has pitched well since his demotion to the bullpen, holding a 1.83 ERA over six appearances (one start).
Sep 9 - 1:11 PM

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said late Saturday that Sonny Gray will likely return to the bullpen.

Gray was terrific in a spot start in the tail end of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, but it wasn't enough to keep him in the rotation, it seems. Of course, the O's can have that effect on a lot of pitchers, so maybe Boone just wants to see more continued success before committing to something like that. Gray obviously holds much more value as a starter than as a reliever, so his situation will be one worth monitoring as we move into September.
Aug 25 - 11:13 PM

Sonny Gray pitched a great game on Saturday to beat the Orioles 5-1, turning in 6 1/3 shutout frames while allowing only three base hits.

He struck out seven and walked just one in his second scoreless start of the season and first since June 6th. The right-hander has been pitching out of the bullpen lately after being pulled from the rotation due to poor performance. He got a chance to make a start today in the second game of a doubleheader and made an impressive statement that he is ready to move back into the starting five. For the season he is 10-8 with a 5.05 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 22 starts and four relief appearances.
Aug 25 - 10:50 PM

Sonny Gray will start for the Yankees in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Orioles.

J.A. Happ will take the ball in the first game. Gray's last start was also against the Orioles back on August 1 and he was hammered for seven runs over just 2 2/3 innings. He can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Aug 24 - 5:29 PM

Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters after Wednesday's game that Sonny Gray is "likely" to start one of the games of a doubleheader on Saturday against the Orioles.

Gray made his first relief appearance in five years on August 8, and has been working in long relief ever since. With the Yankees set to play two against Baltimore, he'll likely make the start against the Orioles, and return to the bullpen afterwards. He has been a failure as a member of the rotation so far in 2018, but he's an intriguing streaming option if only because of how bad Baltimore is.
Aug 22 - 10:52 PM

Sonny Gray got a win for the Yankees after throwing three scoreless innings against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Making his first relief appearance since his rookie season in 2013, Gray opened the 11th tonight and finished out the game with a strong performance. He ended up allowing one hit, walking one and striking out four. It was his ninth win of the year, leaving him tied with Masahiro Tanaka for the second highest total on the Yankees.
