Sonny Gray tossed a three-hit shutout, beating the Dodgers on Tuesday.

The Dodgers' only hits came in the fourth inning on a two-out Adrian Gonzalez double, in the seventh when Howie Kendrick led off with a single, and in the ninth when Kendrick kept hope alive with another single. Gray issued one walk and struck out nine in a 110-pitch effort. He's the AL leader in ERA at 2.16 with a 0.97 WHIP and a 124/36 K/BB ratio over 145 2/3 innings. He'll have a good opportunity to improve on that as he gets to face the struggling Indians at home next.

Sonny Gray fired seven innings of two-run ball, allowing nine hits, in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Gray struck out three and walked two. The All-Star (he didn't pitch in the game) sits in the top 10 of the AL in most every major statistical category for a starter. Now 10-4 with a 2.30 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 115/35 K/BB ratio, Gray locks horns with the Dodgers next week.

Sonny Gray surrendered five runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Twins.

Brian Dozier and Trevor Plouffe homered off Gray, with Plouffe delivering a grand slam in the sixth. It was enough to send Gray to just his fourth loss of the season. He hadn't allowed two homers in a start since last Aug. 22 against the Angels.

Sonny Gray pitched a masterpiece to beat the Indians on Sunday, polishing off a two-hit shutout.

Both hits were singles: to Francisco Lindor in the fourth, and to Giovanny Urshela in the eighth. Gray also walked only one batter while striking out six. He lowers his American League-leading ERA to 2.04 with a 0.96 WHIP and a 108/30 K/BB ratio in 123 2/3 innings. Gray starts the second half off with an outing at home against the Twins.
Jul 12 - 3:38 PM

Sonny Gray tossed seven solid innings, allowing three runs, but was handed a no-decision as the Athletics needed 10 innings to beat the Yankees on Tuesday.

Gray was victimized by back-to-back RBI singles in the first inning, then allowed another RBI single in the fourth. They were three of six hits he gave up on the evening along with three walks and five strikeouts. Gray has been much more hittable in his last three starts, but still maintains a stellar 2.20 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP and a 102/29 K/BB ratio in 114 2/3 innings. His final first half start will come in Cleveland against the Indians.
Jul 7 - 10:33 PM

Sonny Gray (illness) has officially been cleared to rejoin the Athletics' rotation on Tuesday against the Yankees.

Gray missed one turn in the rotation and had another one pushed back after needing a brief stay in the hospital due to salmonella. He's back on track now, though, and will take the ball on Tuesday in New York. Chris Bassitt, who has filled in for Gray, will likely be sent down after Sunday's start.
Jul 5 - 3:19 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that he'd like to have Sonny Gray (illness) return to the rotation on Tuesday.

That way, the right-hander would be able to make two starts before the All-Star break. He had to have his last start skipped and required hospitalization due to a nasty bout of salmonella, but he seems to be doing much better now. Chris Bassitt will start in his place again on Sunday, so look for Gray to take Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees in New York.
Jul 3 - 7:06 PM

Sonny Gray (illness) is not expected to need a stint on the disabled list.

Gray has started to feel much better the last couple days after being knocked out for a while with a bout of salmonella. He should be ready to rejoin the Athletics' rotation early next week.
Jul 3 - 5:42 PM

Sonny Gray (illness) could be placed on the disabled list.

Gray has been released from the hospital after a nasty bout with salmonella, but he only resumed eating solid food on Thursday and is still weak. A backdated DL move would leave Gray eligible to return as soon as July 11, just before the All-Star break. Chris Bassitt will fill in for Gray again on Sunday.
Jul 3 - 1:26 PM

Athletics head trainer Nick Paparesta said Thursday that the cause of Sonny Gray's illness proved to be salmonella.

The right-hander missed his scheduled start on Tuesday and had to be hospitalized due to the severity of the illness. He's expected to make a full recovery and should be ready to rejoin the A's rotation at some point next week.
Jul 2 - 7:48 PM

Sonny Gray (illness) was released from the hospital Wednesday.

Gray had been hospitalized since Tuesday due to "severe gastroenteritis." Despite feeling better, there's no clear picture of when the right-hander might make his next start.
Jul 1 - 7:08 PM

Sonny Gray remains hospitalized due to "severe gastroenteritis," according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The illness has dragged on longer than expected, but it's possible Gray could be discharged later Wednesday or Thursday. His status for his next scheduled start on Sunday remains up in the air, so the A's are keeping Chris Bassitt around in case he's needed again.
Jul 1 - 2:23 PM

Sonny Gray remains hospitalized due to the flu.

Gray, who had to be scratched from Tuesday's scheduled outing, first started feeling under the weather Monday night and is still being taken care of. Athletics manager Bob Melvin did say the righty is feeling better, but it was too soon to tell when he'd be ready to start again.
Jun 30 - 7:27 PM

Sonny Gray was scratched from Tuesday's start against the Rockies due to illness.

He should be back to normal in the next couple of days. The A's are calling up Chris Bassitt to fill in.
