Sonny Gray tossed two scoreless frames Monday against the Phillies in his spring debut.

Gray surrendered a couple singles, didn't walk anyone and recorded a pair of strikeouts. The right-hander will pitch in a tough pitcher's environment over a full season for the first time in his career in 2018, but he should be able to pick up plenty of victories with the Yankees offense backing him.
Feb 26 - 9:31 PM

Yankees and RHP Sonny Gray avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.5 million contract.

The right-hander was arbitration-eligible for the second time this offseason. Gray posted a 3.55 ERA across 27 outings for the A's and Yankees in 2017.
Jan 12 - 5:39 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 05:06:00 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.

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.
Tue, Sep 12, 2017 11:12:00 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.

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.
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 05:04:00 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.
