Athletics | Sonny Gray plays catch

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:11:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) played catch Thursday, May 26, for the first time since being placed on the disabled list Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Throwing already is a good sign, however, Gray will need to show more to be activated when eligible Monday, June 6. Be patient with Gray, but you'll likely want to be careful about who you start him against until he proves he is back to being a productive fantasy arm. Gray posted a 6.19 ERA through his first nine starts of the season. Stay tuned for updates.

Athletics | Sonny Gray placed on 15-day DL

Sun, 22 May 2016 12:27:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, May 22, with a strained right trapezius, according to the club. Daniel Coulombe was recalled from Class AAA Nashville in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: It's not overly surprising Gray is dealing with an injury, especially in light of his 3-5 record and 6.19 ERA through nine starts, or that Oakland is sending yet another player to the DL (league-leading 13). Coulombe gave up three runs over two relief innings on May 10 in his only appearance this season and is unlikely to work himself into any kind of fantasy relevance during this stay with the big club.

Athletics | Sonny Gray struggles in start

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:17:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed five runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings against the New York Yankees Friday, May 20, to suffer his fifth loss of the season. He struck out three batters and walked four during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Gray has struggled in his four starts this month and has allowed 25 runs in 19 2/3 innings during that span. He is scheduled to face the Seattle Mariners in his next start, but owners may want to look for other options because Gray has a 6.19 ERA.

Athletics | Sonny Gray improving mechanics

Sun, 15 May 2016 19:33:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed six runs, three earned, on six hits while walking two and striking out four over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, May 15, but he said he felt like he hit on something with his mechanics late in the start that could help him keep the ball down in the zone going forward.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Gray, you can only help the mechanical tweak helps him return to form. It could also be a good time to try to pry him away from another owner at a discounted rate in case the mechanical changes do help.

Athletics | Sonny Gray struggles again

Tue, 10 May 2016 00:39:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray gave up seven earned runs in a 14-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Gray gave up at least seven earned runs for the second game in a row. Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Gray has been struggling as of late, which is an understatement. He dropped to 3-4 overall with the loss. Gray should not be started until he works through the kinks, because right now he can't be trusted.

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.
