Sonny Gray (forearm) will start on Wednesday against the Angels.
Gray has been on the shelf since early August with inflammation in his right forearm, but he's been throwing off a mound for a couple weeks and is ready to test things out in a game. He's expected to go only 1-2 innings in the outing and can be safely avoided in fantasy leagues for the final week. Sep 25 - 2:06 PM

Date:

Sonny Gray (forearm) said he "threw everything I had and wasn’t holding back" in a 48-pitch live batting practice session Saturday.

A's manager Bob Melvin said of Gray that the "fit him in somewhere" this week provided that he feels fine Sunday. The skipped indicated that an appearance from Gray in the final week would be as a starter. Gray holds a 5.74 ERA in 116 innings this season and should be avoided in fantasy leagues this week, but it looks like the righty will be able to go into the winter feeling positive about his health.
Sep 25 - 12:56 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session on Saturday.

The right-hander has been sidelined since early August due to inflammation in his right forearm, but has yet to give up hope on a return this season. He could make a start in the final week of the season, though he's probably best avoided for fantasy purposes.
Sep 24 - 1:59 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) threw a 48-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon.

Gray is now scheduled to face live hitters over the weekend. He could make a start for the A's in the final week of the regular season, but the right-hander will be on a pitch count in that one and not worth using in a down-to-the-wire fantasy league. Gray, out since early August with forearm inflammation, holds an ugly 5.74 ERA in 116 innings this year.
Sep 20 - 7:23 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) is scheduled to throw 30 pitches in his bullpen session on Tuesday.

The Athletics haven't officially ruled him out for the year, but he won't be worth adding in fantasy leagues even if he manages to return. Gray has been out since early August with a muscle strain and inflammation in his forearm.
Sep 19 - 6:42 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) will throw another bullpen session Tuesday.

Gray has been on the shelf since early August with a muscle strain and inflammation in his forearm, but he's not giving up hope for a late-season return. However, given how poorly he pitched before being hurt, fantasy owners have no incentive to wait around for the righty.
Sep 18 - 2:01 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) threw from a distance of 120 feet on Monday.

It was his longest throwing distance since he landed on the disabled list August 6 with a muscle strain and inflammation in his forearm. Gray still hasn't stepped atop a mound yet however and might run out of time to make it back to the A's before the end of the season.
Sep 5 - 1:39 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) was able to play catch on Friday from a distance of up to 90 feet.

The right-hander indicating feeling good afterwards. He has been sidelined since August 6 due to a muscle strain and inflammation in his forearm. He still has his sights set on rejoining the A's rotation before the end of the season, though the club has no incentive to rush him back into action.
Sep 2 - 7:32 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) played catch Sunday.

Gray has been sidelined since August 6 due to a muscle strain and inflammation in his right forearm, but he's starting to ramp things up again in hopes to rejoin the A's by the end of the season. It would be for peace of mind more than anything else, so don't expect a meaningful contribution even if it does happen.
Aug 29 - 7:21 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) is slated to resume a throwing program this week.

Gray has been shut down for the last three weeks with a muscle strain and inflammation in his right forearm, but he's apparently experienced improvement of late. A return before the end of the season is possible but not a given, especially with the minor league season likely ending before Gray would be ready for a rehab assignment. He's posted a 5.74 ERA over 21 starts this season.
Aug 28 - 1:24 PM

Sonny Gray (elbow) said Monday that he hopes to pitch again this season, but that he's not ready to resume throwing.

And with the minor league season coming to an end in the first week of September, the potential for a return is looking more unrealistic by the minute. "I’m hoping; I’d like to get out there again," said Gray. "But I’m not ready to throw now. I know that even if they cleared me to throw when I go in there to talk to them, I’d be forcing it by going out there today." Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Gray could potentially work toward coming back to throw in the bullpen for pregame work only, but it appears that his return to game action could have to wait until 2017. Assuming Gray is done, he'll finish the year with a brutal 5.74 ERA over 21 starts.
Aug 23 - 9:34 AM

A's manager Bob Melvin said that Sonny Gray (elbow) has not been ruled out for the season.

While Gray has yet to embark on a throwing program, the muscle strain and inflammation in his right forearm have begun to subside and the once-and-future ace has begun taking part in plyometric exercises. While Melvin isn't ruling him out completely, Gray would have to make sustained, rapid progress in his rehab to realistically be able to return before the end of the season.
Aug 17 - 10:42 PM

Sonny Gray (forearm) may not return this season.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Sunday that Gray isn't close to resuming a throwing program, which is obviously bad news when there are only seven weeks left in the season. It's been an injury-shortened, awful season for the right-hander, as Gray has put up a 5.74 ERA over 21 starts.
Aug 14 - 2:30 PM

Sonny Gray was diagnosed with a muscle strain and inflammation in his right forearm.

Gray was placed on the disabled list over the weekend, but tests have ruled out any structural damage. "It’s a muscle strain with some inflammation, a little fluid at the top of the forearm," said Athletics manager Bob Melvin. "We’re not sure how long that’s going to be, but it’s nothing structural. Nothing structural that (suggests) you’d have to have surgery." There's no clear timetable for his return, but he has a chance to make it back and have some peace of mind going into the offseason.
Aug 9 - 8:30 AM

The Athletics are still awaiting MRI results on Sonny Gray's right forearm.

Gray was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with a right forearm strain. This year just keeps getting worse for the 26-year-old, who has a major league-worst (among qualified starters) 5.74 ERA over 21 starts. The A's will cross their fingers for now.
