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.

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.
Aug 14 - 4:09 PM

Sonny Gray has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday due to back spasms.

Jesse Chavez will jump up and take the mound on short notice against the lethal Blue Jays offense. Gray should be fine to rejoin the rotation turn over the weekend -- the A's probably didn't want to risk further aggravating his back on the Rogers Centre turf. He tossed nine innings of one-run ball against the Astros his last time out and boasts a 2.06 ERA in 161 2/3 total frames this season.
Aug 13 - 9:41 AM

Sonny Gray went the distance Friday, scattering five hits in Oakland's 3-1 win over Houston.

Gray outdueled Dallas Keuchel in the matchup of All-Stars, improving to 12-4 in the process. He struck out five, walked none and threw 107 pitches in his fifth career complete game and second in three starts. It's his first complete game that wasn't also a shutout.
Aug 8 - 1:02 AM

Sonny Gray pitched a typically strong game in a no-decision against the Indians on Sunday, yielding one run on four hits over seven innings before watching his team take a 2-1 win in 10 innings.

Gray had issues with his control, as he walked four, but he also struck out seven. The lone run to score against the All-Star came in the first inning, when he allowed a sacrifice fly to Jerry Sands. Otherwise, Gray kept the Indians at bay over his seven innings of work. He's been money all season and currently holds a 2.12 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 131/40 K/BB ratio across 152 2/3 innings. A home date with the Astros is up next on his schedule.
Aug 2 - 7:56 PM

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.
Jul 29 - 12:34 AM

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.
Jul 23 - 2:02 AM

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.
Jul 18 - 1:03 AM

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.
