Sonny Gray pitched seven innings of one-run ball, scattering four hits, Thursday in a victory over the Blue Jays.

Gray struck out five and walked three in a much-needed positive outing. He had a 1.99 ERA on May 22, but then was whipped to the tune of a 5.50 ERA over his next six starts prior to tonight. Now 8-3 with a 3.08 ERA overall, Gray hosts the Giants next week.
Jul 3 - 11:41 PM

Sonny Gray allowed five earned runs in five innings in a no-decision Saturday versus the Marlins.

The A's won the game in the 14th inning, with Jim Johnson earning the win and Jeff Francis tallying his first career save. Gray gave up seven hits and walked three in the rough outing, but he still owns a cool 3.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 90/37 K/BB ratio in 104 innings this season. He will take on the Blue Jays at home next.
Jun 28 - 9:45 PM

Sonny Gray's next scheduled start has been pushed back to Saturday.

It appears that the A's are just giving Gray some extra rest in what is his first full season in the majors. Scott Kazmir will now start on Tuesday in New York.
Jun 22 - 2:46 PM

Sonny Gray picked up his sixth win of the season on Sunday, limiting the Angels to three runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Gray punched out five on the afternoon while walking three. The young right-hander has pitched incredibly well in the early going, posting a 2.45 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 65/27 K/BB ratio over 80 2/3 innings. He'll look to continue his strong start when he does battle against the Orioles in Baltimore on Saturday.
Jun 1 - 8:15 PM

Sonny Gray was beat up for four runs on eight hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Tuesday.

Gray entered the evening a perfect 10-for-10 in quality starts, but he didn't have his best stuff against a stellar offense this time around. The 24-year-old came into tonight with a 1.99 ERA, which has now spiked to 2.31. Everybody deserves a night off once in a while. Gray toes the rubber against the Angels on Sunday.
May 28 - 1:35 AM

Sonny Gray pitched eight innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Rays.

Gray only avoided the loss when the A's scored off Grant Balfour in the ninth. He's a perfect 10-for-10 in quality starts for the league's winningest team this year, yet he's just 5-1 himself.
May 22 - 8:14 PM

Sonny Gray turned in another dazzling performance in Friday’s win over the Indians, striking out nine while allowing just one run over six innings.

Gray surrendered just a pair of hits and three walks on the evening. The impressive young right-hander now sits at 5-1 on the season with a 2.10 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 52/21 K/BB ratio over 60 innings. He’ll look to continue that dominance when he does battle against the Rays in Tampa Bay on Thursday.
May 16 - 10:15 PM

Sonny Gray allowed two runs on six hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday.

Gray was in line for the win before giving up a solo home run to A.J. Pierzynski to lead off the seventh. After a walk to Xander Bogaerts, Gray's day was done. The right-hander gave up two walks while striking out three. He's logged a quality start in each of his seven starts this season, owning a 1.91 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through 47 innings. His next start will come against the Nationals over the weekend.
May 4 - 5:46 PM

Sonny Gray dominated the Rangers on Monday, pitching a three-hitter for his first career shutout.

While Yu Darvish turned in perhaps his worst start as a major leaguer, Gray was at his best. He walked one and struck out six in the 108-pitch shutout. It was also the first complete game for the 24-year-old right-hander. He's 6-for-6 turning in quality starts this season and 4-1 with a 1.76 ERA overall. He's certainly overachieving a bit, but there's no reason he can't remain one of the AL's top pitchers for fantasy purposes.
Apr 28 - 11:42 PM

Sonny Gray suffered his first loss of the season on Wednesday, allowing three runs over seven innings against the Rangers.

Gray surrendered five hits and four walks, fanning eight in the outing. He's produced five straight quality starts to begin the year, owning a 3-1 record and 2.25 ERA. Fortunately or unfortunately for Gray, he'll have his shot at payback when the two clubs meet again Monday in Arlington.
Apr 23 - 6:38 PM

Sonny Gray moved to 3-0 after allowing three runs in six innings Friday against the Astros.

After pitching a scoreless top of the first, Gray was handed a seven-run lead, giving him plenty of margin for error tonight. He ended up allowing more earned runs than he did in his first three starts combined (two), but that hardly matters.
Apr 19 - 1:44 AM

Sonny Gray struck out nine while allowing one run in seven innings Saturday in a win over the Mariners.

Gray is looking like All-Star material in the early going; he has allowed two earned runs and no homers in his three starts to date. We wouldn't look at him as a sell-high candidate; he could well remain one of the AL's top pitchers for fantasy purposes.
Apr 13 - 1:01 AM

Sonny Gray didn’t have his best stuff on Sunday, but still managed to defeat the Mariners, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits over six strong innings of work.

The young right-hander walked two and struck out three on the afternoon. The Mariners scratched out a pair of unearned runs in the second inning, and added another in the third on an RBI single from Justin Smoak, but Gray settled in nicely afterwards and kept his team in the game long enough to come back and get him the win. He’ll carry a 0.75 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 10/5 K/BB ratio into a rematch against these same Mariners on Saturday in Seattle.
Apr 6 - 7:33 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that Sonny Gray's ankle is fine.

Gray took a comebacker off the ankle late in his start Monday, but it's a non-issue. He'll be ready to roll for this weekend's start versus the Mariners.
