Athletics | Sonny Gray tattooed in Motown

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:33:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed four earned runs, two hits and four walks over two innings in a loss Wednesday, April 27, against the Detroit Tigers. It was the shortest start of his big league career. "I've been out of the zone more than I've wanted early in the season, but until tonight, it hadn't hurt me," Gray said.

Fantasy Tip: Chalk it up as one poor outing for Gray, as fantasy owners shouldn't be too terribly concerned at this point.

Athletics | Sonny Gray goes seven innings

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 23:55:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (illness) allowed one earned run, three hits and four walks over seven innings in a win Wednesday, April 6, against the Chicago White Sox while recording five strikeouts in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Gray missed his start Monday due to a bout with the flu, as Rich Hill stepped in. Gray did not show any ill-effects of his illness and appears to be fine going forward.

Athletics | Sonny Gray pushed to Wednesday

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 07:36:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (illness) was pushed back to Wednesday, April 6, with SP Chris Bassitt taking the turn Tuesday, April 5, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Bassitt went 1-8 with a solid 3.56 ERA last season, and he's not a bad option for mixed league depth. Gray is worth consideration in DFS every time he starts.

Athletics | Sonny Gray could pitch Tuesday

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 16:22:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (illness) could make the start Tuesday, April 5, after dealing with food poisoning.

Fantasy Tip: Gray wanted to pitch Monday night, so his illness doesn't seem to be very serious. Even if he does return to start tomorrow, those in daily games should probably play it safe and avoid him. In all other formats, roll with Gray against the Chicago White Sox.

Athletics | Sonny Gray scratched vs. White Sox

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 12:45:11 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (illness) has been scratched for his start against the Chicago White Sox Monday, April 4, because of food poisoning. Oakland SP Rich Hill will start in place of Gray Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Gray from your lineups Monday, especially in daily contests. Hill should be viewed as an extremely risky start given his weak spring (11.25 ERA) and short notice for the outing. Opposing White Sox ace Chris Sale isn't ideal, either. Stay tuned for updates on Gray, but it is likely he'll still make a start sometime this week.

Athletics | Sonny Gray has nice outing

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 15:24:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (arm) tossed seven innings in a minor league game Thursday, March 24, and showed good stuff.

Fantasy Tip: Gray has battled a dead arm in camp lately, something a lot of pitchers experience in spring training. It shouldn't be a serious issue. Gray's lack of strikeouts is something that fantasy owners need to pay attention too, though, and it makes him more worthy of your second starting spot instead of as your ace.

Athletics | Sonny Gray struggles Saturday

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 18:57:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (arm) allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits over five innings in a Cactus League game against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, March 19. Manager Bob Melvin said after the game that Gray was going through a "dead arm" period.

Fantasy Tip: Despite this news, Gray still appears to be on target to start the season opener versus the Chicago White Sox April 4, although it's unclear how this will affect his workload going forward. He should still be viewed as a high-end SP2 in mixed fantasy leagues but owners should be aware that he has tossed 427 innings over the past two seasons.

Athletics | Sonny Gray anointed Opening Day starter

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 15:38:06 -0800

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray was named the Opening Day starter Wednesday, March 9. Oakland hosts the Chicago White Sox to start its season Monday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gray posted his second consecutive 14-win season in 2015, and he improved his ERA (2.73) and WHIP (1.08). He is an excellent target as your No. 2 starter and worth grabbing in the early middle rounds, especially with a favorable home park. It was a touch concerning to see his strikeouts dip significantly to a 7.3 K/9 mark, though.

Athletics | Sonny Gray to pitch Wednesday

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 17:15:53 -0800

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray will throw a three-inning simulated game Friday, March 4, and is slated to make his spring debut versus the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Gray is completely healthy but the A's are looking to limit his innings during spring training so that he can be more effective during the later months of the regular season. He has thrown 427 innings over the past two years and went 2-1 with a 6.84 ERA in his final five starts last year. Gray should be viewed as a high-end SP2 in mixed formats, with his low strikeout totals preventing him from being viewed as a fantasy ace.

Athletics | Sonny Gray taking it slow

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 11:14:56 -0800

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray threw a bullpen session Monday, Feb. 29, but he has yet to face hitters. Gray will not pitch the first week of spring games, just as he did last year.

Fantasy Tip: The A's are just being cautious with their ace, so there's nothing to worry about here. Gray is an ideal second fantasy starter because his lack of strikeouts puts him behind the elite starters.
